This morning was a little different for the Folsom gang as we had a FNG lead the exercise with help from myself, “Garfield”. My son Aiden, later named “Odie” is raising money for his baseball team to go to the NC State 12U Tournament this weekend and instead of just giving him donations we made him earn it. He was up and ready to go this morning at 4:45, looking forward to the experience.
The warm-up started off with jump-n-jacks (we didn’t want to confuse the kid by telling him they are called side straddle hops, so we just went with it). Next up Windmills and then Monkey Humpers (teaching a 12 year old how to do a monkey humper, may not have been the best idea). We finished off the warm-up with stretches.
Round 1 consisted of a lap around the parking lot before we met on the tennis courts for 10 Up-Downs, Odie instructed us to “Get to Chop’n” before he yelled down and we all hit the ground and then returned to the Chop’n position. Next were suicide merkins (25-20-15-10-5) across the tennis courts before finishing round 1 with 10 flutter kicks.
Round 2 was more of the same except we replaced the suicide merkins with suicide burpees (25-20-15-10-5). About half way through the exercise “Omaha” was called and we cut the remaining number of burpees in half, before flutter kicks to complete the round.
Round 3 was slightly modified do to us running out of time so we skipped the lap around the parking lot and started with 10 Up/Downs, suicide LBC (25-20-15) and then flutter kicks to end a butt kick’n workout!
The workout ended with Namaroma and announcement before “Odie” closed us with a prayer.
We had 9 total this morning. Thank you all for your support and helping Odie raise money for the state tournament.
Good Work Odie
