It was a beautiful fall Friday morning for a beat down. YHC was still feeling a bit sore from Whoopie’s Wednesday hellevens or whatever they were called. So I had a few options in mind. YHC noticed Stone Cold showed without his weight vest, so I figured a few others may still be recovering.
It’s been a while since YHC has Q’d at the downtown AO. The PAX was 16 strong so I called an audible real time and decided to revisit the old to sludge through the gloom. From memory, we started with standard disclosures and the PLEDGE.
Warm up: SSH x 40 IC, LBC x 20 IC, 10 merkins IC, 10 burpees OC
The THANG: mosey to the memorial bridge, bear cross over, mosey down to court house for dips x 15 IC, incline merkins x 15 IC, crab kicks x 15IC. Sort of like a leg lift. Rinse and repeat. Heard some mumble chatter about the crab kicks being like the Rockets. A big fail, want try those again.
Mosey to end of parking lot, 10 burpees and then mosey across the street behind the police station. Up first, 20 own your on WWI sit ups, run up stairs, do 10 merkins and back down the stairs, rinse and repeat x 5. At some point, heard the 550 am inbound train, paused and completed the mandatory 5 burpees. Did that a few times. Assumed the plank position while the six caught up.
Immediately meandered to the hill with the ramp. All the pax jumped on the rails, while one bear crawled up the hill, while everyone else was moving down the rail requiring constant motion and completed two passes. If there is name for this exercise, please let YHC know. It burns the shoulders real quick.
Quick mosey across the street for some partner Dora. At this point, oxygen was depleted and think it was 100 squats, 200 merkins and 300 LBC’s while one partner ran to bottom of hill and back. YHC noticed that time was running short and Omaha’d to 200 merkins and then 200 LBC’s. Plank position till all completed and then mosey back towards pavilion. Back at the bridge where we started, bear crawls back over and the a jail break to the pavilion. Wanting to ensure that everyone got their money’s worth, asked Gastone to lead us in flutter kicks, which may of gotten to a 40 count.
Announcements and Prayer Requests.
Great effort by the Pax. To see guys continuing to push and dig deep inspires me. It’s amazing what your body can do when determined and motivated. Mind over matter prevails every time. It’s a privilege to Q and I always learn something new. A wienke is great for keeping you organized during a Q with the added benefit of being on target when posting about it. Amazing how limited my recall is from working out before the rosters are up. Keep up the great work men.
Till next time
