I didn’t realize I had put myself on the Q schedule until lunch with Shortsale yesterday. It was settled and time for an oldie, but a goodie. The HUNDO…
Circle up and grab the weights. On the journey to 100 with said exercise, if you stop, you count the number of stops and multiply times two and that’s the number of burpees we do at the end of the set.
Exercises: Squats, Merkins, Crunches, Calf Raises, Curls.
Funny thing is Hushpuppy was late and when I announced I stopped five times during the Merkins, he said he stopped seven times and we did 14 burpees. No one ever spoke up after the first person said their number from then on.
Now we laid on our backs for a round of neckies, courtesy of BA. It was determined that the Pax had not worked out their necks since 9th grade. Then 10 Booyah Merkins. There was a group of three so Hushpuppy call that the booyah-a-trois. Next up was 25 straight leg deadlifts.
Grab your weights and go on an Indian Ruck down the trail and around the pond. This is where YHC had to stop the line and quietly discipline Sargento and Sledge-o-matic for their failure to move to the front as they were talking. To learn a lesson, they had to hold their weights over their heads and the rest of the pax had to alternate arms for farmers carry.
Meet up at the end with the boot camp boys for the end.
Moleskin: Great time today. I heard some words from a guy I work with that does CrossFit. Funny thing is if you know someone who does CrossFit or is a vegetarian, you will know it within five minutes. What he told me though, was that a famous CF trainer discusses the thoroughbred and the bumble bee. The thoroughbreds life is built to race. Eating, sleeping, every facet of their life is about racing. They also don’t show up and worry about the leg size of another horse, they run their race. The bumble bee by all rights, shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know that. Really thought provoking, or at least it was for me. We all learn so many different lessons from each other. It was my pleasure to be there. Ill leave the rest for Timeframe to finish.
