It’s hump daaaay!!!
Somewhat warm and humid Wednesday, a worthy crew of 11 of Gastonia’s finest plus Slaw conquered the fartsack and braved the gloom to better themselves and the men around them. What happened went something like this.
Stalling waiting on Whoopee to finish doing whatever it was that he was doing.
Goof Balls x 20 double count IC
Still stalling in eager anticipation that Whoopee might join us.
Hillbillies x 20 double count IC
Whoopee in a diva-like way shows fashionably late to the group. Welcome princess. We can go now.
Mosey to the bottom end of the park’s parking lot near the playground for a groovy little number I picked up off of our friend Boudin who is on IR. We are wishing you the best bro. Looking forward to your rejoining the regulars.
The Alabama shuffle which is..lunge, lunge, 4 merkins.
Repeat this process from the bottom island to the next…approx 50 yards from my super duper accurate cable guy eyeballing skillz.
Mosey to the next island (not the HIM but the actual natural area in the parking lot).
Karaoke facing right to the next island. Karaoke left to the last island.
Mosey to the grassy hill at front end of park.
Triple nickel…5 merkins bottom, 5 mountain climbers top, x 5.
Mosey to the parking lot in front of the maintenance shed fro some ab work.
All x 30
Oblique crunches right then left
Repeat entire set x 20 and then x 10.
This turned out to be a very flatulent portion of the morning. Makes one appreciate the “held outdoors” core principle.
Mosey the long way around the ball fields to the picnic tables in front of the playground.
I announced that this would be the back and shoulder portion of the morning but as Gastone noted, it was kinda not.
Dips x 15 double count
Step ups x 20 each leg
Derkins x 10

Mosey back to the flag and time.
It was as always wonderful being in the gloom with “the fellas”. If you are reading this and have not posted in a while, we for sure know the struggle of the fartsack. It’s very real. However, I speaking for myself have never regretted posting. It is the very best way I personally have ever started my day. As a matter of fact, it has gotten to where the day just is a little off on the days I don’t post. If there is any way for you to keep this in mind at 5 am please do so. Please know that you are missed.
If you know a Kotter, re-EH them. Invite someone who you know can use it. This is too good of a thing to not share.
The guys are incredible. This thing has helped to make me a better me all around (husband, father, son, employee, brother, friend, and servant). Not to mention the health benefits! An answered prayer for sure.
It was super cool seeing Stone Cold back out with his weighted vest.
Good to see Slaw on a Wednesday.
I could single out all the guys. You are all awesome. Encouraging, inspiring, supportive, and nice. Aye fellas!
Convergence at the Gashouse June 29…Be there dangit!
F2 Tubing Green River…See Roadie.
Oompa Loompa’s mother’s visitation TONIGHT at Greene Funeral Home 6-8.
Trinity Key, friend of EZ Rider fell and is seriously injured. Please pray.
Graduates and families.
Until next time.
Its a real honor to be even a small part.
