Recycled bits make new wholes

Recycled bits of back blasts can make stellar new routines.   This isn’t a stellar one, if we’re being honest.  Know what I’m saying….

It was good, in the B range.  Either way, this is about 6 days past post date, so none remembers what happened anyway.  All that matters is that it made a positive impact on your day and those around you.  Live it!

A little bit of stair running and deep sea divers to warm up.

Other than the fluctuation in the cadence, and occasional wind breaker, this was a smooth wake up call for some muscle growth and cardio building.  Mumble chatter was at an all time high. Sorry for all youz that missed out.

3 minutes of Mary ended this madness.

 

COT: Prayers for Scott Meeks and family, Linda Arnett, T-Square’s grandparent, Officers family who’s sister died in an auto accident last week.

Elite Eight

Minus 2, makes it the magical 6.

What may seemingly have lacked in numbers, definitely did not lack in effort, brawn, determination, and fortitude. We scoured downtown to find a suitable location, person, place or thing to challenge the fire that burned in each one of us.  We tried with a mighty zest to find a formidable foe, but conquer them all, we did.

WARM UP – Didn’t need one.

THANG – Destroyed, but remember with fondness as recounted below.

Side Straddle Hops – IC x 15
Imperial Walkers – IC x 10
Merkins – IC x 10
LBCs – IC x 15
Flutterkicks – IC x 15
Squats – IC x 10

The big adventure continues with a mosey several blocks south, down to the empty parking lot with 2 steeply sloped entrances. We slayed them.

Partner up.
200 Merkins (50 max at a time) – Other partner bear crawls up one entrance, runs to the other, bear crawls down. TAG – 2 rounds

Partner up.
200 Squats (50 max at a time) – Other partner crab walks up one entrance, runs to the other, bear crawls down. TAG – 2 rounds

We did something else, it was fun, not fun enough to remember an write about it.

MOSEY – to the street.

10 Merkins on the right side of the road, run to the other side and hit 10 squats. – Repeat x 4 rounds.

Next block, the great Lunge Walk, Monkey Humper stroll.  10 Lungers per leg, 10 Monkey Humper – and repeat until we make it to the traffic light.

Imperial Squats – 10

Dips – 15 IC

Mosey to the Pavillion for 4 minutes of MARY.

AND RECOVER.

The Web of PAIN

An expertly delivered combination of burpies, sprints, missed cadence and ball busters accompanied groans and smashed goals.  Once in awhile, even with the cutting jokes and wit, a beat down is worth repeating.  If you missed this one, it’ll be back in April.

This one started a minute or 2 late, but we definitely made up for it with a shoulder buster routine.

Can’t stop the Queso

You can’t keep a good Queso down. As a matter of fact, Queso will likely keep a furious pace that sets the bar.  He did so on Friday as everyone busted out multiple series of burpies and bear crawls and ab crushers.

We partnered up for some viscous Imperial Squat Walkers and Mountain Climber Merkins that put a hurting on the quads and shoulders, and tried a new one the Dirty Hookup(see below).

We are all unique snowflakes

No matter what Tyler Durden told you in Fight Club, you are unique and special. And gosh darn it, people like you.

With a 10 PAX, I mean 9(count off issues again), we broke in the day, pre-snow.  During the early mumble chatter, the drops of cold rain began to transform into fluffy white dead fairies that fell from the blazing sky.  Cold to the touch, yet refreshing to the pallet.  We dove right into this muscle builder routine right after the pledge, and in the process, crushed my old personal record of never-before-lead exercises(2).

COT:

This workout snuck up on me.  At some point I had to sit out an exercise as I became light headed. It was either the intense workout or the dazzling beauty of snow falling on the empty parking lot.  Not much on  the strenuous cardio, but a heck of a pump.  Thanks to the PAX for being there and being strong!
