I was excited to Q on this beautiful Friday morning and had what I thought was going to be a fun set of exercises…definitely going to be an arm day! I was running a little behind and got there later than normal but still had a few minutes to spare. The Pax didn’t disappoint and we had a nice crowd with 2 FNG’s for the fun I had planned.
I did a quick disclaimer and the pledge along with the usual SSH’s, some mercans and some LBC’s…let’s mosey.
We arrived at the roundabout and did 3 sets of dips and mercans…15 of each, 10 of each and 5 of each. Let’s mosey to the parking deck.
Here is where the math lesson began. We did 2 exercises and then we squared the level we were on for the amount of burpees we had to do.
Level 1 – 25 LBC’s and WW II sit ups….only level 1 so 1 burpee
Level 2 – 20 regular mercans and diamond mercans…4 burpees
Level 3 – Bear crawl the length of the parking deck…9 burpees
Level 4 – 30 SSH and Imperial Walkers…now it starts to get real fun, 16 burpees
Level 5 – 20 calf raises and squats…25 burpees
Level 6 – only forgot what we did here as we did not do what was on my list…but the main thing is we did 36 burpees!
As we were coming down the parking deck Whoopee came up with a name for squaring the exercises we do as you go up the deck…Squaravator. So, feel free to use this on any workouts going forward using the deck. The Pax loved the burpees…might have to become a regular; thanks Whoopee!
We ran down to the bottom level and in honor of the beatdown Sister Act put on me Sat we did 2 sets of hipslappers. Mosey back to the roundabout for 2 more sets of dips. Our arms were shot and we were about out of time; so back to the Pavilion we went for a few minutes of Mary.
Not sure what all was done other then Whoopee calling out for 5 Wolverine burpees which brought our count to 96 burpees overall. After we finished our round of Mary we did 4 more burpees to get us to an even 100.
We had our time of closing and named our FNG’s. Welcome to the group Round-up and Serena (found out we already have one of these, so it was mentioned to possibly rename Serena. I’ll leave that to the Pax.)
It was an honor and a privilege to lead and workout beside you men…keep pushing that rock!
