Mosey down to the bottom picnic shelter where an obese Chihuahua had taken over while his owner read a book. Despite the dog’s protest, we started our Arms and Cardio Laps. It went like this.
Dips x 10 (in shelter)
Mosey to bottom of parking lot SSH x 10
Mosey near the ampitheatre sidewalk for 10 burpees
Mosey to the top of the parking lot for 10 Monkey Humpers
Mosey into the top picnic shelter for 10 Derkins
Mosey back out to the parking lot for 10 Seal Jacks
Mosey a little further down the parking lot for 10 Mike Tysons
Mosey to the bottom rest room steps for Step Ups or Calf Raises x 10
Back to the bottom picnic shelter to repeat the lap.
All exercises in cadence except burpees and Mike Tysons.
We did 4 laps and stayed together and several guys helped me call the cadence.
Mosey to the tennis courts for Rugby Sprints (Abs and Core).
Start on 2nd court, exercise until I say Sprint then sprint 2 courts, sprint 2 courts back and then mosey 2 courts for the next exercise. We did Flutters, Freddies, Oblique Crunch Right, Oblique Crunch Left, American Hammers, Hello Dollies, Dying Cockroaches and penguins always more than 10 reps. Gump was flying on the sprints! It is sometimes difficult to yell “Sprint” loudly this morning. This would have been the perfect occasion for using Freight’s gym teacher whistle.
Mosey to the fork in the road and get a modified Dora in. Partner up for 100 CDD’s, 100 Hillbillies and 100 Squats with running a short lap around the fork / triangle in the road. Back to the flag where Pizza Man led 22 for the vets and we’re done and Buckeye changed his sweat-saturated shoes.
I spoke about persistence and how nothing in the world can take the place of persistence to solve problems. Keep pushing to be better men in fitness, fellowship and faith!
