Non-Stop Cardio Beatdown

  • When: 05/25/16
  • QIC: Bandit
  • PAX: Flintstone, Hushpuppy, Stroganoff, Short Sale, Monk, T-Square, JJ, EZ Rider, Squeeker

As usual the PAX met at Snowball’s parking lot. There were 10. As we gathered, bets were pondered on whether Spiderman would post, and if so, would anyone see him arrive. HOW DOES HE DO THAT?

Warm Up

  • SSH IC X 10
  • Mericans IC X 10
  • Don Quixote IC X 10
  • Imperial Walker IC X 10
  • Mountain Climber IC X 10

The Thang(s)

Mosey to Martha Rivers parking lot for a round of Johnny Cash (mistakenly called Ring of Fire, but similar). Each man in circle (i.e. the Ring of Fire) does 1 Merican in sequence while rest of PAX planks. We did total of 10 rounds (for English majors that is 10 Mericans each).

Mosey through parking lot, and eventually picnic benches next to field 4 where we completed Shoulder Dips IC x 20. After a quick countdown, we continued with another set IC x 5. I think we might have thrown in a quick set of SSH IC x20.

Mosey to field 4 for some 4 Corners OYO with 10 Mericans, 20 CDDs, 30 Squats and 40 LBCs. PAX planks for the 6. Rinse and repeat once again.

Mosey across field 4 and then a few short hill climbs. Up the hill, into the woods a short ways, then back down the hill. Rinse and repeat. After that we did three sets of Dying Cockroaches IC x 20, x 10, x5 (last ones were done SLOW for extra crispy burn).

Mosey back to Martha Rivers parking lot, stopping outside the restrooms to use the wall for 3 sets of Donkey Kicks. IC x 10.

Mosey back towards Snowballs, stopping along the way for 20 reps of Little Baby Dips along the curb.

Last mosey gets us all the way back to Snowballs parking lot where we finished up.

About 7 MOM – People’s Choice…

  • Mericans IC x 5 (Flintstone)
  • Mericans IC x 10 (Hushpuppy – who cut in line)
  • Scissor Kicks IC x 40 (Stroganoff – who graciously waited his turn, and un-graciously drove PAX to death by Scissor Kicks)
  • Ski Abs IC x 20? (Short Sale)
  • WWI Sit Ups IC x 20? (Monk)
  • Mason Twists IC x 20 (T-Square)
  • Freddy Mercury IC x 20 (JJ)
  • LBC IC x 20 (EZ Rider)
  • Homer/Marge (Courtesy of Squeeker – however many it was, it was too many)

Naked Man Moleskin

There was absolutely NO resting today. There was even some whisper’s about a mutiny – of course YHC did not care (or believe it). Tried to keep a quick pace between exercises to really get the cardio going. While there were rumors among the PAX of the driving force behind the accelerated pace, none were either confirmed or denied. If anyone want’s their money back… TOO BAD! Oh, in case you were wondering, Spiderman fart sacked, but no one lost any money.

We finished up with COT. Prayer request for Stroganoff’s family as his father-in-law (battling cancer) was readmitted to the hospital, also to Monk’s graduating college students (and many others) looking for jobs, T-Square’s family going through loss of loved ones, and a church member/friend of Hush Puppy’s who lost her husband.

I’m glad to be here! Always a pleasure to lead among this group of #HIM!
