It was a beautiful morning at the Yank. YHC didn’t realize it but this would be his first Q of the new year. Man time can fly by when you’re having fun!
Today 10 brave men and 1 overgrown pubescent youth found their way out of the trappings of their fartsack to the glory of the AO. Let’s get it on
Mosey across the street with boombox in hand (insert moans from PAX) for a little alleyway warmup.
Sidestraddle Hop x25 IC
“Flower” by Moby was played. Of course, that lets us bring Sally up and bring Sally down. Man that was fun!
Mosey back across the street, drop off the speaker, and continue down the sidewalk. Watch out for the dog poo ahead and take a right at the corner heading for the front of the middle school. Once the PAX comes together, it time to explain the Thang.
The Figure 8: At each stop each PAX performs 20 reps of each particular exercise.
1 – Merkins
2 – World War 1 Sit Ups
3 – Goof Balls
4 – Flutter Kicks
5 – Dips
6 – World War 1 Sit Ups
7 – Goof Balls
8 – Monkey Humpers
Plank for the 6 when done. After each round, YHC talked some and heard from the PAX that they wanted more because they loved it so much! Aye. In all we finished 3 rounds.
Mosey in front of and away from the school until YHC noticed a usually closed off area of our AO. There were plenty of sturdy picnic tables that almost begged to be worked on.
A few rounds of step ups and derkins had the PAX whining and moaning which YHC takes as a compliment. Thank you!
Mosey back toward the back of the school.
After a brief Wall Sit, the PAX was instructed to do do 10 Hipslappers. The FNGs really liked this one YHC thinks.
Mosey down to the covered picnic area for the last leg of our morning workout. Thanks to Whoopee’s Q a couple months ago where he unveiled the awesome game known as 5 or 10 along with JJ’s mention of a theme at Gashouse using the number 8 for the days of our current challenge and 40 for the total days in the challenge, YHC came up with the game 8 or 40!!! This was so much fun it’s sure to become a staple in all of our workouts! Unfortunately this was harder to than it seemed for the Q to find an appropriate exercise when a number was called by the PAX. Some weren’t so bad, like LBCs, Dying Cockroaches, or even burpees. The worst came when the juvenile known as Queso asked specifically for 40 Merkins at the end of all this. My own blood betrayed me!
One last mosey down to the hovercraft for a quick Nolan Ryan to send it home. We’re done!
Moleskin: YHC having posted Friday morning and getting in a 4 mile run that evening was beyond the point of creativity for building a good weinke later that night. It’s a good thing that I save most of my weinkes and was able to pull an old favorite. Hence the Rewind. Also let if be known that Tiger EH’ed FNG Cam for today’s workout but was conspicuously absent. There was plenty of razzing and mumblechatter aimed at Tiger but he later showed up at Cherubs and explained that his family has the stomach bug. Thanks for staying away brother!
My apologies for not remembering the prayer requests or announcements men. I’ll do better about that and obeying the 24 hour rule.
Until next time, Sargento is out…
