I’ve had this workout rattling around in my head for some weeks now…. in fact ….last week I intended to step up and Q for Wednesday’s opening , but Toto beat me to it!
So much happened, where to begin? Well, let’s start that there were Tweets for this opening but no one stepping into role. My M doesn’t like nor trust social media … so …. had to hope for best that no one wanted the position ! Arrived to see only a few vehicles there’s Easy Rider here comes Pedal ….. and RPO …. now there’s some girls? Is this an impromptu FIA workout? No …. apparently Forestview is doing some cross country EARLY training and I noticed that RPO didn’t look back when He joined the girls ( smart kid!). Wait ??!?! Who’s this ? The Bandit is still alive ??? ( he was apparently not aware of Burt Reynolds demise until somewhere before end of workout when he laughed at this ) Many questioned who was Q, I told all present I was ready and prepared to go…. so…..
Moroccan night club ic
Toy soldiers ic
imperial walkers ic
5 burpees ( for the train that never came… actually there were 2 late cars that actually had late arrivals for cross country runners… so no more takers and away we go ….
mosey to far soccer field … line up at nearest goal line for complete set of rules …..
run to 25 yd line for 25 merkins and return
now on to 50 yd line for 50 monkey humpers …. but wait …. must first pick up 25 more merkins before moving onto the 50 ! And return to start ….. and once again collect 25 more merkins!
now onto the 75 yd line and 75 lbcs ….. but wait!!!! Don’t forget the 25 merkins , 50 monkey humpers down and back!!!! Lastly … go to other side if field to pick up 100 squats ….. and can you guess what’s next ? Yes … collect 25 merkins, 50 m h and 75 lbcs down and back !! Oddly after explanation , Toto asked if bathrooms were open and I said if not there was the woods …..
i had not timed this event so was curious about how long it would take and remarked about this to Easy rider who was finishing up with me and I mentioned “ rinse and repeat “ … I never caught his response but could swear that It sounded like he was not very interested in that idea …. Hey …. just noticed Toto is back !!! He then proceeded to explain why we have underwear and socks and how disposable they can be! TMI
now let’s mosey to picnic benches for a new activity I found …. the Abyss merkin!!! Straddle 2 picnic benches ( left arm and left leg on one side … right side other ) now do merkins x 10 or at least 1 looking into the abyss .. we found that some picnic benches spaced too far apart ( for extra challenge)
next 3 rounds of 12. -15 in cadence dips , 20 Derkins oyo and 20 step ups ( 10 each leg
fellowship mosey and then pick up pace to last set of lights …. ring of fire time …. more merkins ( since we haven’t done much upper body) 10 each clock wise …. oops I indicated counter clockwise …. seems my record is still only one workout with no Qfail … oh well Bandit then mentioned that it was Q test and that I passed… completed task and added addl wide arm merkin …. some grumbling to which I told all present to push through as this was it!! Mosey to start and …. TIME!
prayers for Bandits friend with triple bypass and some unmentioneds … course we should add Turtleman to come off the IR
It is always a pleasure …. it’s been a little too long since I’ve Q d , but glad to have grabbed this opening …. I have a couple more ideas such as going Merkin Crazy ….. you see there’s this interesting merkin exercise called the ….. oh you dirty devil ! You almost had me spill the beans …. let me stuff that back in my bag for another time ! Hehe!!
Other thoughts are that I’ve challenged. Myself to not use the Omaha no matter what … and I succeeded! Also shout out to my pal Spider-Man … notice there were no side hops straddled ….. something I always wanted to achieve ( you must check out his workout from last year where no side straddle hops were harmed !!)
Now, as a final note , you wonder the significance of title? Just a workout. Many times I and many of the Pax utilize the workout or the pattern of workout to express a story or message …and yes I have done so with most of mine ( bday, death day etc) ….. I am not discounting these at all … I only wished to achieve a workout only routine with no other message…
until next time….. Clavin
