With rain forecasted for this morning, YHC put together an alternate Weinke just in case it was a downpour. Fortunately the Sky Q gave us a beautiful morning because the alternate plan involved the Gazebo which I noticed upon arrival had been torn down. It’s 7am and 8 HIM’s are standing around so let’s get started.
SSH x15IC, Don Q’s x15IC, 5 Burpee’s OYO. That’s enough, everybody head to the back of YHC’s truck and pick up your bricks. YHC asked PAX to think of the bricks as a burden that they would be carrying with them through the workout and to also be thinking of what other burdens they were carrying in their lives.
There always seems to be a lot of mumble chatter at the Yank about Soccer Arms, so let’s do something about it.
Mosey up Main St. to the corner at Woodrow for Set #1 which was Alternating Curls, Overhead Press and Moroccan Nightclubs. 3 sets – x5,x10,x15 (it became evident at this point that the reps would need to increase going forward due to the ease with which the PAX were performing).
Mosey down Woodrow to Glenway and down to the parking lot behind the General Store for Set #2 which was Merkins, Sun Gods and Squats. 3 set – x10,x15,x20
Mosey across the tracks Airline where we will pay tribute to Freight. A premature Victory March was done at Midoriyama on Thursday, so the record needed to be set straight with a proper march. Zombie walk down Airline with 6 Kenny Williams (aka Bobby Hurley’s) instead of squats.
Mosey over to Mill St and down to the parking lot known as The Pit for Set #3 which was front raise, wall jumps and wall sit overhead press. 3 sets – x10,x15,x20
Mosey over to Myrtle St and to the front of Belmont Middle for Set #4 which was Step Up’s, Dips and Derkins. 3 sets – x10,x15,x20. At this point YHC decided to take a little breather and reminded the PAX that we don’t have to struggle with carrying our burdens by ourselves. Christ tells us in Matthew 11:28 “Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest”. Paul also writes in Galatians 6:2 “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ”. If you’re struggling with something give it to God and reach out to one of your brothers for help and support.
Mosey down to the side parking lot for some 11’s, Mike Tysons and Calf Raises.
Time is running out so mosey to the picnic shelter for some quick ab work. 45 sec AMRAP 15 sec recovery. Exercises were WWI’s, American Hammers, Nolan Ryan’s and LBC’s.
Mosey back to the flag for the pledge.
