Better at 48

I was up early and ready to go this morning as I had not Q’d a workout in a while due to being on/off the DL lately.  Add in the fact today was my 4th birthday since getting involved with F3, I was ready to get it on.

I was awake early as usual so why not head to the Schiele for some EC running, someone else might be there.  No, so what do I do………….do it anyway.  Got in a 5k (slow) before the main workout.

Arrived back to find Huckleberry and Canteen ready to go but no one else.  Huckleberry inquired if this was normal, I said no.  We’ll see if anyone shows.

Why yes, by the time we were ready to go, we had 14 including the Q’s.

No FNG’s so no real disclaimer though we did have some Kotters on hand.

We did discuss this was my 48th birthday and the bootcamp might have a 48 theme.

Warm-Up IC

SSH X 24

Imperial Walkers X 12

Moroccan Nigh Clubs X 12

Time to split up and mosey (6 braved the bootcamp with YHC)

Quick stop at the Flag for the Pledge

The Thang

Mosey around the back of First Presbyterian and on to the track at Sherwood Elementary for some track work:

Partner up;  Run half lap in opposite directions until you meet back up for 12 Booyah Merkins (no idea if that’s spelled correctly); run back to the start for 48 LBC’s OYO;  Rinse/repeat 3 more times with 48 Flutter Kicks, 48 Freddy Mercury’s & 48 American Hammers after each set of 12 of the Booyah Merkins.  It was fun and reps focused on the number 48.

48 lunge steps along the back of the track to finish off the work at Sherwood.

Mosey back toward First Pres up to the Scout Building and down the steps for some step work:

48 LBC’s – Run to the top of steps for 8 Merkins and back  down.

48 Flutter Kicks – Run to top of steps for 8 Merkins and back down.

Continue sets with 48 reps at bottom and 8 Merkins at top.

48 Freddy Mercurys – 8 Merkins

48 American Hammers – 8 Merkins

48 Moroccan Nightclubs – 8 Merkins

48 Squats – 8 Merkins

Another fun-filled exercise.

Mosey to the track at Grier middle School for more track work with a modified Wolfpack Grinder:

12 Squats IC – Run half lap – 24 Merkins OYO

12 Squats IC – Run half lap – 48 Mountain Climbers OYO

12 squats IC – Run half lap – 24 Merkins OYO

12 Squats IC – Run half lap – 48 Mountain Climbers OYO

Mosey to the picnic tables to finish off the work at Grier:

24 Dips IC – 24 Step-Ups IC – 12 Derkins IC

12 Dips IC – 12 Step-Ups IC – 12 Derkins IC (I should know better by now not to work right beside Dolph)

Mosey back to the Schiele to finish off with 22 Merkins for the Vets led by Canteen.

Good work men.

Announcements; Prayer Requests; Name-o-rama – The PAX even sang Happy Birthday to me.  Many thanks.

The Moleskin

As always, it’s terrific to Q a workout and at my advanced age, just being able to get out there and get some work in is a privilege.  I mentioned this during the workout but 3 1/2 years ago at age 44, I was almost 40 pounds heavier, had a few good friends and was a borderline sad clown.  Things have changed a little since.  Besides being in better shape at age 48 as compared to 44, I feel I have a group of men I can count on if needed.  F3 is the answer for some of the issues that men currently are having in our society.  Keep spreading the word, there are many others that  could benefit.  The PAX of F3 Gastonia are helping me to think the best is still yet to come for this old(er) man.  I couldn’t think of a better way to start off my birthday than in the gloom with a group of HIMs as I did this morning.  The 6 guys in the bootcamp pushed me today to work hard through my Q and I didn’t want to disappoint.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Until the next one.  Aye!

Gashouse is under new management

Just another Saturday and another workout at the original F3Gastonia location……Gashouse.  I had announced on Friday that this was my last Q before turning over the Site Q reigns to Linus so I wondered who would have the guts to show for a little Forrest Gump action……well, a great group showed knowing good and well we might run a little.  Great crowd showed for Mayor’s Pain Lab also.  Another humid morning.  Time to get after it.

No FNG’s.  What would we do?

Let’s start with 5 burpees OYO…..that’s right…..I called some burpees.

10 Imperial Walkers IC

Pledge

Split the group between the bootcamp and pain lab.  I was very happy to head off for the bootcamp after glimpsing Mayor’s torture chamber set up.

The Thang – The Forrest Gump (one of my early workouts that had to be brought out again)

Mosey to East Garrison Baptist Church for some IC work:

Merkins X 11

LBC’s X 20

Mosey to Hillbilly’s for more IC work:

Merkins X 11

Prayer Squats X 15

LBC’s X 20

Partner 1 does exercise, Partner 2 runs up to top of steps toward the pool and back until the cumulative reps are completed as noted:

100 Merkins

200 Squats

300 Flutter Kicks

Mosey to the upper picnic shelter inside the train tracks (exactly 1 mile from the Schiele for those wondering) for some IC work:

Dips X 15

Step Ups X 20

Derkins X 10

That was so much fun we Rinsed/Repeated for a second set.

Mosey back to the Flag Circle at Lineberger Park for some Ring of Fire:

10 Merkins Ring of Fire

20 Mountain Climber Ring of Fire

Time to start the mosey back toward the Schiele with the next stop back at the Baptist Church for more IC work:

Forrest Gump tradition of Monkey Humpers X 10 for all the drivers on Garrison….you’re welcome.

Wait…what???   5 more burpees OYO……had to do it.

Final mosey back to the Schiele to catch up with the Pain Lab for some Mary:

Dying Cockroaches X 20 (where’s Bandit?)

Flutter Kicks X 25

Bells ringing – we’re done.

Time for a terrific impromptu ‘Passing the Torch’ ceremony as Linus takes over as Site Q.  I know that Roscoe spent many, many hours of prep into it.  It was quite moving.

Announcements:  Convergence at Poston next Saturday; June 23 Grandfather Mountain hike/ruck; many great things happening in F3 Gastonia Region.

Several prayer requests; COT prayer

The Moleskin

I appreciate once again the opportunity to lead a workout at Gashouse.  I’m also grateful for the opportunity to be the Site Q at Gashouse for the last couple of years.  At the same time, we need to remember the purpose of F3 is to invigorate male leadership in our community so it’s imperative that we allow others to take on leadership roles such as Site Q’s.  I am looking forward to following Linus’s leadership in the coming year.  I hope I have set a decent example.

Until the next one.  Aye!

Gashouse is Fun

Another special day at Gashouse with a special guest that runs the 85 Podcast.  Welcome to Zach Brown (Cod(cast)).

More than a few for some EC running before the workout (this F3 thing won’t work in Gaston County).

Good crowd showing just before 7:00 and wait, how about a couple of Kotters….Dr. Feelgood & QT.  Let’s get it on.

With the FNG/Podcaster on site, we had the disclaimer and short question about the Painlab.  Hipaa and Rudolph were the only ones so they decided to join the Stroganoff bootcamp…….excellent.

Quick IC warm-up:

SSH X 15

Imperial Walkers X 10

Pledge

Let’s get after it.

The Thang

Mosey up to the main parking lot at Grier Middle School for some modified Stroganoff’s:

Bear crawl across parking lot – 10 Mountain Climbers – Lunge Back (That’s one)

Rinse-Repeat for a total of 5.

Mosey to the steps at First Presbyterian Church (a favorite Gashouse location) for the Rally to 1000 – leg & shoulder edition:

Partner up – Partner 1 performs called exercise – Partner 2 runs to top of steps under overhang – 5 CDD’s and returns and switches positions with Partner 1; cumulative reps as follows:

Mountain Climbers X 200

Squats X 200

Moroccan Nightclubs X 200

Calf Raises X 200 (Our FNG got a taste of F3 fellowship when the Q called these leg raises; several of the PAX chastised the Q for this (rightly so I might add) so the Q reminded them they were all #1 in his heart……oops)

Overhead Claps X 200

8 groups – 1000 reps each – 8000 reps total – nice work

Plenty of time left for a mosey back to Grier’s track for a shoulder style Wolfpack Grinder:

Squats IC X 10 (once again the Q’s personal space was violated by multiple individuals – what gives?)

Run half lap – 20 CDD’s – plank for the six

Squats IC X 10 – run half lap – 30 mountain climbers – plank for the six

Squats IC X 10 – run half lap – 20 CDD’s – plank for the six (I think it was here that Short Sale took off for a Daughter event – setting a good example for putting family first.  He also successfully jumped the fence unlike YHC at a previous EC workout last year)

Squats IC X 10 – run half lap – 30 mountain climbers – plank for the six

Mosey to the picnic tables for one last bit of In Cadence reps at Grier:

Dips X 15

Step Ups X 20 (two of the PAX that will remain unnamed converted to Derkins during this set for some reason)

Derkins X 10

Rinse-Repeat sets above for a total of 2 rounds

Pushing the clock now toward 8:00 am so lets mosey back to the Flag for some quick Mary:

Flutter Kicks X 30

LBC’s X 30

Bells are ringing

Good work men.

Announcements – Prayer Requests – Name-O-Rama (Welcome FNG Cod – This might be revised)

The Moleskin

Another great morning for me as I was able to start another Saturday off with a great workout (including some EC running beforehand).  I greatly appreciate the accountability from the PAX.  F3 has provided this to me without anyone having to stay on my case (most of the time) just by the numbers that post to weekly workouts.  I have found myself wanting to get out there when possible because I know so many of you are out there each and every day.

We need to continue to EH others, ask others to get in leadership positions and keep moving the group forward.  Groups like this (or any organization) can get to a point where growth slows and stagnation can potentially creep in.  Right now some AO’s are thriving while others seem to be struggling.  Keep aware and keep pushing.  You guys are making an impact.

F3 PSA:  One other thing, when running a route that is about to be used by a Girls on the Run event, it might be a good idea to not tell the volunteers helping to set up the route that we like to “beat elementary school girls” as Qeruicdwhe did during the EC.

Be on the lookout for the 85 Podcast (put on by the Gaston Gazette). The FNG Zach Brown is the host and is podcasting about the positive things going on in Gaston County.  I subscribed tonight through iTunes and will be checking it out.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Until the next one.  Aye!

Stroganoff

The Pub – Watch out for that Curb

11 HIMs pushed the rock for some moseying and rucking.

9 Ran (one was attacked by the curb near the start….I won’t name that individual but it rhymes with fiva).

7 for 5; 2 for 3

2 rucked (one with an impressive old school pack)

It was fun.  A great way to start a day full of opportunities to impact others.

Thanks for the push.

Until the next one.  Aye!

Stroganoff

Quality…..not quantity

As I arrived back into the parking lot at the Schiele after an EC run, I was expecting a big crowd as I have not posted at Gashouse in well over a month due to travel, the CSAUP relay and other running events.  As I pulled in, all I saw was Moses.   Maybe the PAX was apprehensive about another Stroganoff Q……..unlikely.  Shortly, a few more arrived but it was a small crowd compared to the normal numbers at Gashouse.  We would still make the most of it.

An FNG, thanks to Hunchback.  Disclaimer.  Short warm up:

SSH X 20 (IC)

Imperial Walkers X 10 (IC)

Pledge

Time to split up as Clavin had the Painlab Q

The Thang

We moseyed to the main parking lot at Grier Middle School for some Stroganoff 5’s:

Bear Crawl across parking lot – 10 Merkins – Lunge walk back to starting location

Rinse – Repeat for a total of 5 reps

Mosey to the steps at First Presbyterian Church for some partner work – Rally to 1000:

Partner 1 does exercise – Partner 2 runs up the stairs for 5 Merkins and back down to switch with partner:

LBC’s X 200

Squats X 200

Flutter Kicks X 200

Mountain Climbers X 200

Freddy Mercury’s X 200

Mosey to the track at Grier for some Booyah Merkins Half Mile:

1st Half Lap – 8 Booyah Merkins

2nd Half Lap – 6 Booyah Merkins

3rd Half Lap – 4 Booyah Merkins

4th Half Lap – 2 Booyah Merkins

Short mosey to the picnic tables for the following IC work:

Dips X 15

Step Ups X 20

Dips X 15

Step Ups X 20

Mosey back to the Schiele to finish off with some Mary:

LBC’s – Box Cutters – Dying Cockroaches – Mountain Climbers – Nolan  Ryans

Announcements – Prayer Requests – Closeout with a Prayer

4 for Coffeeteria

Good work men.  Good to be back at Gashouse after a long absence.

Welcome FNG Stagecoach.

Thanks for the opportunity to lead.

Until the next one.  Aye!

Stroganoff

April 5th – It’s 38 degrees

Wow, it’s cold for April.

What do you want to do?  Run?  Ruck?  Both?

2 ran 4; 1 ran 5; 1 rucked for 45

It was fun.

Let’s do it again sometime.

Until the next one….Aye!

Stroganoff

Going to the Library shouldn’t hurt

After yesterday’s leg beatdown by Roscoe downtown, I had to rethink the workout today.    My legs were in agony this morning….what would we do?

I showed around 6:15 to get in some light running/walking so I could stretch the legs and get warmed up a little before the main workout.  I guess it worked….I also did some recon (I know….how many times have I posted at Gashouse, why do I need to do some recon?) to come up with something new.  I’m sure the PAX would be disappointed  if we did not have the Wolfpack Grinder portion of the program but it might not happen today.

13 PAX showed by 7:00 am (4 for the Painlab; 9 for the boot camp) and T-Square made sure YHC knew that 7:00 am was upon us.

Let’s get in some IC warm up:

SSH X 22

Appalachian Americans X 10

Pledge

Groups split up (Thanks to Roscoe for grabbing his phone as we need one with us at every workout)

The Thang

Mosey across Garrison to the lower parking lot behind the Library for something new from me.  For those of you that have been posting for a while and know me, this is big when I come up with something knew.  I have yet to come up with a name for this but here’s what we did:

Partner Up

Partner 1 runs up the two sets of steps to the backside of the Library and back to the start while Partner 2 performs as many reps as possible of the following exercises:

Merkins X 4 Rounds

Very short rest before starting the next exercise/running session

Flutter Kicks X 4 Rounds

Very short rest before starting the next exercise/running session

Deep Squats X 4 Rounds

This was so much fun we decided to do 2 more rounds of each with no rest between changing exercises

Merkins X 2 Rounds

Flutter Kicks X 2 Rounds

Deep Squats X 2 Rounds

After Monk gave us a quick 10 count, we moseyed back across Garrison to the track at Grier Middle School for another new short exercise:

Run/Mosey/Sprint a Half Lap – 5 Burpees – Run/Mosey/Spring a Half Lap (back to the start) – 5 burpees – 50 LBC’s

Mosey to the picnic tables (now this is how we end a Stroganoff workout) for some IC work:

Dips X 20

Step Ups X 20

Derkins X 15

LBC’s X 25

Dips X 15

Step Ups X 20

Derkins X 10

LBC’s X 20

Time is running out.  Time to mosey back to the Flag.  There was much curiosity at Hipaa’s Painopoly game, I will await that BB.  Just enough time for some IC Flutter Kicks X 40………finished just as the First Pres bells were ringing.

Several announcements:  October 6 – BurpeeThon will return; CSAUP coming up on April 7 (Today is last day to register) – Sounded like an HC from JJ and Roscoe; Community Foundation Run on April 14th; Christina Latini Memorial 8k (Operation Sweet Tooth) on April 21

Several Prayers including JK2’s Dad, Monk’s Daughter (State Gymnastics Competition), Gashouse Goruck Team, Def Leppard’s Son, and others.

Name-O-Rama with video (I normally forget) – Sorry, no group picture.  Several for Coffeeteria at Panera.

Moleskin

After travelling and being on the DL briefly over the past few weeks, I realized how much I rely on you men to keep me focused and grounded (and in shape – did I say my legs are killing me?).  When I miss posting or working out somewhere for several days, I lose that sense of daily accomplishment and progess.  I know I have said it many times before but F3 matters and you guys are making a daily positive impact on the persons around you.  Keep it up.

I hope today’s workout was worthy of your time.  Thanks for the opportunity to lead.

Until the next one.  Aye!

Stroganoff

10,000+ reps; salt; Timberlake; Kotter; Grinder; 5’s….makes perfect sense

Friday gloom.  Was I late?  Boudin seemed to think so or maybe he thought in my advanced age I was lost and confused (he is much younger) as he came to check on me as I scoped out the parking lot.

Large crowd downtown including a Kotter……..welcome back Woodstock.  Great to see you…Go Wolfpack!!  Montross is a Timberlake fan….Go Team!

A few had already completed some EC.  I attempted to get in my 25 burpees before the workout but only got in 15 due to time.  I missed Wednesday but caught up with 50 last night……..that was brutal and will not allow that to happen again.  My youngest child (12 years old) is now asking me each night if I’ve gotten my burpees in yet…….nice work Pizza Man.

Not sure if it was just laziness, lack of creativity or I’m just a simple guy but on the way to the AO, I decided I would just do a repeat of my Q from this past Saturday at Gashouse, or at least get in as much as I could in 45 minutes.

No FNG’s.  No disclaimer needed.  Let’s do the Pledge with a short IC warm up:

SSH X 15

Appalachian Americans X 12

The Thang

Mosey east through the parking lot and around to the back side for some Stroganoff 5’s:

Start at one curb – bear crawl to other side – 10 merkins – lunge back (that’s one)

Rinse – Repeat for 5 full sets.  Fun time #1.  Gastone should have brought gloves.

Mosey for some frogger across Long Ave (or Airline or Ozark or whatever it is right there at the Courthouse) and down behind the social services building for the Rally to 1000.

Partner up for some short running – merkins – exercise rotation for cumulative reps:

Partner 1 performs exercise – partner 2 runs up left side steps to upper parking lot – 5 merkins – run back down right side steps to switch with partner for cumulative reps as follows:

Flutter Kicks X 200 (that’s 200 per leg…..why is this so hard?)

Mountain Climbers X 200

Freddy Mercury’s X 200

Plank Jacks X 200

LBC’s X 200

Lot’s of reps, over 10,000 plus a giant load of merkins.  Fun time #2.

Count off before another frogger mosey back to the parking lot at the pavilion for a modified Wolfpack Grinder until time to quit:

For those participating, today marks day 35 of Roscoe’s 40 Days of Discipline…..might have an impact on the reps below.

10 Squats IC – run to other side of parking lot – 35 merkins – Plank AT THE DISCRETION OF THE Q BOUDIN!

10 Low & Slow Squats IC – run back to the beginning point of parking lot – 35 Plank Jacks – Plank for the six

Rinse & Repeat for one more round before moseying to the flag for one last set of IC Flutter Kicks X 30 (not sure why I didn’t take it to 35). Fun time #3

Announcements/Prayer Requests/Name-O-Rama

Good work men.  I appreciate the opportunity and apologies for the lack of creativity, especially if you posted Saturday at Gashouse.  Apparently I have tapped out my thinking cap already this week.  I’m a simple guy.

Until the next one.  Aye!

Stroganoff

1000 Wolfpack Grinders leads to Manly Men

Dark.  Colder than the last few days.  Chance of rain.  Just another F3 Workout at Gashouse.  As the week went along, no one stepped up to Q the workout so I put together what I hoped would be a respectable beat down.

As I have done for the last few Saturday’s I’ve been in town, I showed up a little before 0600 to get a ruck in……the parking lot was full.  Must be an overnighter inside the Schiele but no one waiting…..however, Woody’s and Boudin’s vehicles were already parked and vacant…..they started early.  Looks like another Saturday morning of ruckerbation.  It was fun.

As I strolled back in there was a good crowd waiting to join my bootcamp or Billy Madison’s appropriately named Painlab for the morning.  Tooltime was here…..at least I knew it wouldn’t be a quiet workout.  Kotter JK2 also made an appearance.  Let’s get after it.

Quick warm up in cadence:

SSH X 10

Appalachian Americans X 12

Pledge

Time to split the groups up – 14 for the boot camp…..but wait……we’re taking the flag with us today.  YHC grabbed it for the mosey to the main parking lot at Grier Middle School.  I believe 8 total (including the two FNG’s) stayed for the Painlab.

The Thang

The Stroganoff 5

Start on one side of the parking lot – Bear Crawl to opposite side – 10 Merkins – Lunge Back (That’s one)

Rinse & Repeat for a total of 5 and plank for the six.

Somebody grab the flag, it’s mosey time to our favorite steps behind First Presbyterian.

The Rally to 1000

Partner Up:  Partner 1 performs exercise while Partner 2 runs to top of steps and performs 5 Merkins and runs back and switches to the exercise reps.  Cumulative reps of 200 for each of 5 exercises:

Flutter Kicks  (Yes……that’s 200 per leg)

Mountain Climbers  (Yes…….that’s 200 per leg)

Freddy Mercury’s  (Yes……that’s 200 per leg)

Plank Jacks  (Yes….that’s..wait)

LBC’s

If I counted correctly, we knocked out 7,000 reps at the bottom and a load of Merkins at the top.  Good work men.

Mosey time to the track at Grier Middle School.  During this mosey, Belding (a true gentlemen) ran with me and informed me that in Florence, they typically do not run ahead of the Q out of respect.  Apparently, we hold no such respect here at Gashouse.  At least someone grabbed the flag.

Time for a round of the Wolfpack Grinder

Let’s start with some…..some…….squats……..however, the Q was practically assaulted during the attempt but it went something like this:

10 Squats IC (assault # 1) – Run 1/2 lap – 25 Merkins OYO – Plank for the 6

10 Squats IC (assault #2) – Run 1/2 lap – 20 Mountain Climbers OYO – Plank for the 6

10 Low/Slow Squats IC (assault #3) – Run 1/2 lap – 20 Merkins OYO – Plank for the 6  (I believe it was during this 1/2 lap mosey that I asked JJ if we had any personal injury lawyers in the PAX…..no luck)

10 Low/Slow Squats IC (assault #4) – Run 1/2 lap – 30 Mountain Climbers OYO – Plank for the 6

For the record, the assaults were orchestrated by Roscoe, Tooltime and Dolph……YHC is luck to have survived.  I just wanted to get home and shower.

However, we had plenty of time to mosey to the picnic tables for some IC work as follows:

Dips X 15

Step Ups X 20

Derkins X 15  (There was much rejoicing during these reps)

Dips X 10

Step Ups X 20

Derkins X 10

Time to mosey back to the start.  Grab the flag.

Painlab was winding down and we joined in for some calf raises before finishing with some Mary:

Monk called out some crazy side ab work….something…..something……

Last was 30 reps of Flutter Kicks IC.

Well done men.

Announcements & Prayer Requests

Name-O-Rama

COT

Moleskin

It’s always an honor to lead this group but especially when we have a Kotter (JK2) getting  back after it and two FNG’s from the Pain Lab (T-Mobile & Kodiak).  They had spent the night at the Schiele and joined the Painlab as they were leaving.  That Dad is on the Path with his son.  Well done.

One of my most recent books that I have finished is Stephen Mansfield’s “Book of Manly Men”.  I would highly recommend it.  It’s a relatively simple read but has some strong messages about what it means to be a real man.  Here’s an excerpt:

“……a real man is willing to subordinate his own desires and aspirations to greater causes:  his God, his nation, and his family.  He puts the welfare and security of others before his own.  He knows he is blessed by a sovereign and loving God to be an American, and he believes his family is a gift from God for which he is responsible.”  The author goes on to explain there are four Manly Maxims:

  1.  Manly men do manly things (Take action)
  2.  Manly men tend their fields (Take care of their own, their territory, guard it)
  3.  Manly men build manly men (Iron sharpens iron)
  4.  Manly men live to the glory of God

This hit home for me and one reason I stay involved with F3.  To me, you men exemplify the statements above.  We are responsible and have the opportunity to go out each day into our community and show our families and those around us what it means to be a man.  You may experience push back in our society that no longer want us to be that “biblical” man.  Stay the course.  Our children, our wives, our friends, our coworkers, our community are watching and hoping for men like us to carry on and lead the way.

Until the next one.  Aye!

Stroganoff

We’ll Come Up with Something

So…..it was cold again.  My trusted Ford Explorer told me it was 22 degrees when I arrived and 19 degrees when we were leaving.  The moon was freaky bright….blue, blood moon or something going on with it.

As the PAX started to arrive I started to think about what we would do.  I really had no idea at the start of the warm up that went like this:

SSH X 10 IC

Imperial Walkers X 10 IC

The Pledge

The Thang (We’ll figure something out during the mosey)

We moseyed to Martha Rivers and headed for the far end of the parking lot……hey, let’s do some 22’s.  I haven’t done them in a while at this AO.

Merkins and Monkey Humpers

Run across parking lot – 20 Merkins – Run back to start – 2 Monkey Humpers

Run across parking lot – 18 Merkins – Run back to start – 4 Monkey Humpers

You get the count.  This was done OYO until the last set was 2 Merkins & 20 Monkey Humpers.

What now?

Let’s mosey down to the large soccer field for………………some 4 corners.

First round (OYO):

Run to 1st Corner – 20 Merkins

Run to next corner – 30 LBC’s

Run to next corner – 40 Squats

Run back to starting spot – 50 Flutter Kicks

That was fun.  Let’s do it again in reverse.

Run to 1st corner – 50 Flutter Kicks

Run to next corner – 40 Squats

Run to next corner – 30 LBC’s

Run back to starting spot – 20 Merkins

Still much time remaining.  I….must……do………work………in……….the………shelter.

I can’t help myself so we moseyed to the closest picnic shelter for some IC work:

Dips X 20

Step-Ups X 20

Derkins X 15

LBC’s X 20

Dips X 15

Step-Ups X 20

Derkins X 10

LBC’s X 20

Mosey back up the parking lot to one of the light poles for a quick round (except for Gastone and Spiderman) of Ring of Fire:

Circle up around the light pole and plank – each man does 5 merkins around the circle until all are complete.

Mosey back to Snoballs.

50 Flutter Kicks IC

5 Burpees (I swear I heard a train)

Announcements:  Flag football on Super Bowl Sunday (not me)

Prayer Requests

The Moleskin

Nice work men.  It was especially nice to see a few out I have not seen in a while such as Brown Streak.  Keep it up.

It was an honor to lead the group this morning as always.  I hope the work was worthy of the time spent.

Until the next one.  Aye.
