Being the day after the 17th anniversary of 9/11 I knew I wanted to recognize the vets and first responders the mean so very much to us as Americans. F3 has a taken hold of the “22 for the Vets” pushup challenge recognizing that 22 Vets a day commit suicide. This number has become attached to honoring our servicemen.
As I show exactly at 5:30 to the Snowballs parking lot and approach the Pax I am greeted by Gastone and 8 more of the fellas waving hello to me via Monkey Humpers. At that time of the morning, this is quite a stinky way to start that day butt we press on with our ass-perations of moving our rears.
I take over for the Warm Up:
SSH x 22
Moroccan Night Clubs x 22
Mosey to the park for some 11’s (we were going to do 2 sets of 11’s making 22 but I messed up my knee at work and barely made it through the workout so the 2nd set was Omaha’d);
Squats this side and Merkins over there.
Mosey to the shelter for 2 rounds x 22;
Meander to parking lot for some Mary:
22 counts on the following;
Begin mosying back stopping at the light poles for;
Zombie walk to next pole
LBC’s x 100
Mosey to directly in front of waiting cars;
Monkey Humpers x 22
Mosey back to Snowballs. I need to recognize Gastone, D-Fib, Boudin, Island, and Turtleman for always greeting the Pax as we come in. This is really inspirational to me. I will be up front with you guys one day greeting too. Thanks guys.
Still 3 minutes so more Mary;
At this point what looked to be a Forestview student having him morning workout joined us and with no surprise the Pax was super inviting and welcoming. He said he would be back. I hope that’s true.
Leg raises x 22
American hammers x22
Flutter kicks x22
