Whoopee coming in hot ….. HOT DAMN!!!!
Race to my truck, wrestle Bose speaker out freshly charged, set up track …. then Whoopee calls that he’ll be running for Mortimer training , but I convince him that my Travis Tritt song will be the perfect start to his day …. in fact also Cory Marks also is on this track ….
pledge …. very quick disclaimer and…..
start with SSH while Outlaws and outsiders begins ….. the excitement builds and hardly is contained as I announce that yes you know me , there’s ALWAYS a twist …. as Ivan Moody comes in I announce his distinctive voice and call out the way super Ass cool band name Five Finger Death Punch! And we change over to ski jacks ( discussion of whether or not an exercise … all I can say is do it for one minute and call me ) switch to plank jacks and before the guitar solo I announce that one more artist is on this track …. Mick Mars of Motley Crue! So we change over to Seal Jacks until the song is over …..
As I replace the speaker and get ready to mosey to main event …. Whoopee starts crying that the song wasn’t long enough, JK 2 had watched the video while it played on my phone so he gets no credit for the warm up ,,, discussion about when Whoopee will watch said video to which he made some comment about watching it while cutting people open ,,,, he just NEEDED to see this video …. in fact he started casting aspersions on Country music in general Saying that he now loves Dierks Bentley and Jason Aldean and how revolutionary they’ve been ….. we had to tell him to go away !!! We needed to get to our workout …. he went off to cry in a nearby ditch not to be seen again until just before the COT
Then another member of our group started bitching as Stinky Bird notices he never set his watch up for measuring progress and wanted a redo ! NOPE NOT ON MY WATCH!!
away we go
arrive in front of Soon to be Planet Fitness for HIIT ( high intensity interval training ) I tell all to modify but to push as hard as possible for they will be rewarded with a 15 second break after every 30 second called exercise …..
pax tried to figure out a way to convince me of easier exercises but I wouldn’t shake unless I followed MNC with burpees, Flying Squirrels followed squats I think but mostly I called on merkins, wide arm merkins, flutters, Freddie Merck’s and diamond merkins and a couple of these …. the best way to figure was that if the pax were standing …. I called an exercise on their six ….JK2 tried just to lay on ground for his recoveries … so I called SSh or plank …. just for the twist of it!
and we must not forget JK2 showing off ( as he put it) his best feature …. his calves ….. insert much admiration / drooling ….
Stinky Bird started crying and jumping up and down because he messed his pants or something and needed a diaper change so I slapped him and told him to man up! Wait until 6:00 at least! We mosey to 7/11 to pump a little ass … or should it be gas?
monkey humpers 7 in cadence at first set of pumps and 11 IC at second set …. then move to other side for crab thrusters ….it was at this point that not only is it noted that we are not following the flow of pumps 1/2/3 …etc …. instead we started at 7 then 2 and so on to which I reminded all that this is Gastonia …. we are challenged ! …. there were pickle pounders and other things …. suffice it to say …… NOT PG!!!! Finished with diamond merkins of 11 IC ( Gastone was pleased to have been able to accomplish these …. so kudos ….he’s still recovering from illness and returning back to form!)
Stinky Bird flies away
we mosey to steps near Food Puppy for some Clavins err ….. calf raises regular/ toes out / toes in all 25 oyo
mosey behind Planet Fitness ….still 2 vehicles protecting their back door ramp …. keep moving …. oh wait ….. 5 burpees for the train….. JK2 says it’s the air horn from a passing plane ….. oh boy … what a crowd we gave today !!
to the wall for 10 IC derkins ( yep)
10 step ups each leg
Gastone asks about what Postal Division uses tanks snipers mortars and various other weapons …. I tell him must be the Inspection Service
distractions distractions …
10 IC dips
15 step ups each leg
dip position …. wait for it ….. wait some more …. and IC
10 dips with right leg up …. next 10 IC both legs up ( no takers ) so left leg up ….
recover and mosey back to start and here comes Whoopee consoled by Stroganoff !!
praise for JK2 on new job and new car ( don’t get him started …. should go into auto sales!!) but seriously …. glad to hear of this new change and wish him and the family all the best as this will be a big change for him!
now with all that happened today … my favorite moment came when Whoopee remarked that he was training for the Mortimer which is in 2 Weeks!! And I say, “ wow, I had no idea it was so close!” And Whoopee without missing a beat delivers a perfect line ….. the best line this week maybe “ I had no idea either!”
unfortunately I forget to give a bible message for today ( yes I had one prepped,,,, but will save for next week since I’ll probably have the Q again next week )
