According to Stinky Bird it was all like Deja Vu to him today for some reason …. could be because this was my first ever redux of a workout. It was such a hit last week down in Lake Wylie that I felt it needed presentation here…. there were a few minor changes just not with the workout …
Upon arrival I noticed Stinky Bird and informed him that it was Back to the Future ( past ) day …. he may want to leave ….. he went on and EC run but I thought he took my advice not seeing him until start time …. the crowd assembled and I informed all of what was to happen ….
Disclaimer …. should be easy to modify …. plz do if needed..
This workout was mainly influenced by 3 major exercises that seem to have been in heavy rotation lately ( yes …. even I have used these and am guilty ) however they have been greatly modified …. but the influence remains ….
SSH. IC x11
Merkins IC. x11
Stinky Bird informs all pax to get accustomed to being in a plank position much of rest of time ( spoilers!!)
Time to slow stuff down…
MNC IC. x11
Plank jacks IC. x11
LBCs. IC x11
What’s next? 1 burpee ….. if you can’t figure …. this is a reinvention of 11s
Mosey to front entrance of the park that has not been in use much of the last few weeks with F3 ( usually we end up Old HT or Robinson)
Locate nice patch of grass and introduce the Big BM ‘s …
4 exercises that we will do for next 15-20 minutes
5 burpees 25 big Boys 25 merkins and 25 CDD scorpions … 25 first lift one leg and then do 25 other leg up ….. wait for pax and inform them that self and Stinky Bird remained in the 6 last week as the Crew at Crows Nest stayed at it …. Stinky Bird confirmed and added that they may have added by twos …….
At the back of the school …. completely in the dark with plenty of owls to talk to there is a mega monster hill they affectionately call “ the Green Monster” … Hipaa told me of it weeks ago when I told him of my guest Q ( also it should be noted that other than Iced Tea whom I work with who is the site Q who stayed after me until I accepted the invite ,,, I only knew Radar who supplied a Slack message that brought out The Hushpuppy and Stinky Bird… I chose NOT to visit the site nor visit and meet unmet pax prior to that date and met 8 great guys with amazing stamina’s !!
Back to the workout where we mosey to hill at front of park normally used by Gastone which was probably close …. although shorter than the Green Monster where we will recreate those 4 exercises minus one cdd scorpion at bottom of hill , mid of hill top of hill , back to mid hull and end at bottom of hill with all exercises…. last week I failed to explain that you are to ‘carefully’ do each exercise in the direction you are facing but added today …. sadly pax did their 5 burpees and moved to mid hill when Stinky Bird and I suddenly called them out …. bringing them back to finish AlL exercises …. they cheered and were overjoyed ….. they had somehow forgotten the big boys and merkins …
guickly they realized just how challenging each of these is in another direction…. my influence was NOT present ( Turtleman ) who loves to perform Big Boys on Hills with Moderate inclines ….. he NEEDS these!!
Burpees are VERY tricky in the dark facing downhill …. in the interest of time …. I Omaha the last bottom of hill set and explain that this was a reinvention of 4 corners ,,,, however , you can do 2,3 or 4 exercises for a complete beat down , just change the direction , elevation or some other aspect and you greatly increase the difficulty and challenge!
Short mosey to parking lot for my Dora exercise …. it was influenced by Dirt who gave us Rugby Sprints
Here pax line up , pax one calls exercise until they decide to yell , “Go!” We jog to start of parking spaces and back then run to other side and walk back …. reset for pax 2 and so on…
Stinky Bird started us with ….. well it was intended to be imperial squat walkers In cadence ….. lost in translation …..
There were flutters, Rocky B’s, MNCs Mercury Freddie’s … bicycle in reverse… seems the same…. most notable was Defib and his 20 minutes of Mike Tysons …. we ALL stopped to admire his form …. he finally called go I just had time to call little man/ Gumby in the woods ( Smurf Jacks) , I chose not to be cruel and after one yelled “go!” Had pax stop other side and quick mosey across the field for ,,,,,, Time!
It should also be noted that these Rugby Sprints are great to challenge the pax for creativity (choosing the right exercise and /or timing as well as watching many challenge nearby partner for who will finish first ! These are a great addition ,,,,,, much thanks to Dirt for this one …
There are many great locations here , but I admire those fellow pax who post out of town whether on vacation or at work in strange cities … I’ve also noted many who’ve posted near our area … I thoroughly enjoyed my guest Q and hope to have a chance to revisit these great HIMs just south of us … their workout times are earlier than ours …5:15….
