So for the last few weeks YHC has been closing COTs in Metro and other places with a prayer of thanksgiving about us getting together to enjoy a humid, warm summer morning. Only of course to be corrected by some wiseass pax that it’s still spring. At my advancing age I have seen more summer’s than most so I know what summer is when I see it and feel it regardless of the date. And in my youth summer activities included but were not limited to cutting site lines on a survey crew, hauling and feeding cattle, and pulling tobacco in eastern NC. So YHC knows little bit about summer. And boys, we are THERE! So it was time to celebrate by bringing out a deluxe McBadass at The Yank yesterday morning. It went like this:
SSH X 20
IW X 20
Don Q X 20
Mosey up to the parking lot behind Cherub’s and a few other spots for the suicide drills, run two parking lines up and one back and do the called move to the end of the lot:
1st set: One burpee
2nd set: 5 jump squats.
10 Mike Tysons at the end
Mosey on up to the Stowe hose for another set of 10X, 15X, 20X repeats:
Fence squats (aka Tijuana Dreamers or as I call them, Trumpers!)
LBCs with a twist.
Mosey up to the next corner:
Another round of work:
Mountain climbers (10X, 15X)
Hand release merkins (5X, 10X)
Squats (10X, 15X)
Mosey up to the Corner of Knowledge:
Step ups, Incline merkins, Dips
Repeat 10X, 15X, 20X
Mosey down to Heart Break Hill for some REAL work after all this warm up.
Welcome to the Numbers Game. Here are the numbers to remember:
10, 14, 18. Number of reps on the called exercise.
1, 2, 3. Number of hill runs between the reps.
1st set: Merkins (10, 14, 18) Hill runs( 1 following the 10, 2 following the 14, 3 following the 18)
2nd set: Squats, same as above.
Mosey up to the Field of dreams after these gassers!
We enter the 4th Quarter. As Bear Bryant said, winning is not imperative but getting tougher in the 4th quarter is! So here we go!
The IM slalom:
Bear Crawl (2X)
Agility run (1X)
Over the top (1X).
This got everybody pretty gassed as well!
Return as follows:
Backwards run 1/4 , drop and do 5 burpees
Backwards to the 1/2 point, drop and do 5 diamond merkins
Backwards to the 3/4 point, drop and do 10 real situps
Backwards to the end, 10 mountain climbers.
Mosey down to the fountain for some finishing up Mary by the pax,
Finish up and head for The Yank and the pledge.
Great work by the pax today. It was a really a pretty nice day with some breeze to cool us off. But yeah, its summer and its humid, and we are near the water so the humidity is magnified. We put in a hard roll today despite all that. If anybody took a nap, good for them! Anchorman let us know of a service opportunity for some special needs kids over at Crowders in July. Stay tuned to Twitter for that. I think its called Branch Camp. They need some adult support mostly late afternoon as best I can tell but I bet they would take anything they could get. Reach out if you can.
Be looking for leadership next week. I’ll be reaching out for that. The Yank is Badass. Keep it that way!
