Dave Bennett gets an edge in the Rumble

 Moments before the final workout of the Rumble in Paradise, Dave and Bonnie Bennett practiced a move now known as “The Pre-Muscle Up Towel Toss.” Considering the great mystery that bedevils Dave and his most-likely-to-tear hands, it was a shrewd move and it seemed that the practice went extremely well. Elsyium folks know firsthand how dedicated Bennett is (but, Bennett concedes, “I have no plans to give up drinking beer.”)

The couple celebrates a solid transition towel toss and, presumably, the relief that comes with having the whole thing over.

Dave’s final workout, one that helped land him another trip to the podium, is below in it’s entirety.
