YHC wasn’t sure how many of the PAX would brave the post snowmageddon 2020 world to get some work in. When YHC arrived there were 3 gathered and reportedly 1 en route.

0530 arrives with the attendance unchanged.

Time to get started…

We knock the pledge before starting a little warmup.

SSH x 15 IC
Plank Jacks x 10 IC
Smurf Jacks x 10 IC

We took a quick mosey to the parking garage to begin.

A few weeks back, YHC joined others for a HIPAA Q at The Vault (Uptown workout @1140 on Wed.). Here he introduced a workout that was named “The HIPAA Violation”. It sucked there, so let’s see how it works at Gastonia’s parking garage.

The call is 11’s with Burpees at the bottom and Burpees at the top, using the stairs. At each floor, perform 7 squats. (Note: Since the layout of the parking deck is different, this was modified to 7 squats at every other floor after first round)
Somewhere in the middle of this, the PAX en route arrives – welcome RoundUp. (Based on his Strava, he toured Downtown trying to find us)

YHC was lapped twice by the HIMs in attendance – Nice work!

PSA: Parking decks freeze faster than roads (and apparently don’t drain as well either). There quite a bit of ice, especially on the top level. This made the burpees and navigation easier and harder all at the same time.

At this point Whoopee said something about hearts, arteries, ties, guns or something and disappeared into the gloom.

Since 11’s were sooooo much fun, let’s do it again.
Flutters at the bottom and Mtn. Climbers at the top. Two changes – to avoid the ice, don’t go up to the open levels and run the ramps up, instead of the stairs.

We got about half done, before heading back to start.

There was time for two rounds of Mary:
Stinky Bird with American Hammers x 15 IC
RoundUp with Merkins x 10 IC

And that is time (although Stinky Bird thought he as cheated 8 seconds)

Announcements: They really haven’t changed in like a month, so if you don’t know what is going on, where you been?

Prayer Requests:
RoundUp’s M with pregnancy.
PAX recovery from injury/illness.
Those battling addiction.
Leaders of our state/nation.

Q fail on the verse for this morning:
Isiah 40:28
“The Lord is the everlasting God”

The Lord is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. You can count on Him in all things.

RoundUp took us out.

It was a honor to lead and be lead.

Watts Up powering down.
