10 Strong men converged on Martha’s House for a fair helping of Stroganoff’s Simplicity workout. Some of the creativity at recent workouts was not lost on the Q…..he was just not up to the ‘creativity’ task. The disclaimer consisted of “you shouldn’t be doing this” and “if you’re looking for the creativity of Short Sale and Feelgood, you came to the wrong workout.”

The Pledge

The Warm-Up: 10 IC Side-Straddle Hops

That was it

The Thang

We began with a mosey to the center of the spoke at the Baseball Fields at Martha Rivers Park for some basic exercise sets all In-Cadence:

Merkins X 15
LBC’s X 25
Squats X 15? (Not sure about this count as the Q’s personal space was invaded…..glad to see you back Whoopee)

Merkins X 15
LBC’s X 25
Squats X 15 (Personal space issues were adverted as the Q moved down to the far end of the PAX)

After a brief rest we took the long route mosey over to the lower end of the parking lot near the playground.

With a slight modification to 11’s, YHC decided to bring out some 22’s. Same as 11’s in concept but the total reps add up to 22 and we count up and down by 2’s. The two exercises were Merkins and LBC’s and went something like this:

Run across parking lot + 20 Merkins + run back across parking lot + 2 LBC’s (One complete)
Run across parking lot + 18 Merkins + run back across parking lot + 4 LBC’s (Two complete)
This continued until the last set of 2 Merkins + 20 LBC’s. The Q wasn’t sure about this one and it bordered on violating the rule of ‘If you can’t do it, don’t Q it’, but the PAX completed the task at hand.

This was followed by another short mosey around the path back to the picnic shelter for some more simplicity work (didn’t say easy…..I said simple). Grabbed some bench for the following in-cadence work:

Dips X 20
Flutter Kicks X 20 (I know, I never do these when leading)
Step Ups X 20
Quick Count off
Dips X 18
Flutter Kicks X 20
Step Ups X 20
Quick Count off
Dips X 15 (I think this was the correct number but was distracted by my Mother and her Sisters walking by the picnic area combined with Whoopee’s incessant compliments…I think)
Flutter Kicks X 25
Step Ups X 20

Mosey back toward Pelican’s but wait, there was time for a quick stop for a round of 15 IC Derkins on the curb while avoiding incoming traffic.

Mosey back to Pelican’s. Finish off with a quick round of Dying Cockroaches (Thanks Bandit). This took us to 6:15 am.

Several announcements that I cannot remember. Prayer requests. Name-o-rama. Final kneeling for the prayer to finish the work and take us out for the day.

Great work men. Thanks for understanding I needed the simplicity today. I have enough complications. You guys help me stay grounded and focused. As always, an honor to lead.

Until the next one.
