Your friendly neighborhood Spider-man

This was a couple of weeks back at one of the final sitings of  our beloved web slinger. The gloves were thrown down Turtleman nominated me , I considered but worried about the daunting task of such a monumental site with also such BIG shoes to fill … could I do it ? I had never even Q’ d there before . I put together a Weinke and have had it ready for some time …. just lacked an opening to use. All too often I arrive downtown just in time …. the last time Spidey ran the gauntlet on us I arrived just behind him to find Gastone already rallying the troops … then the baton was passed over to Bedpan! I believe he will do very well …. All that prep work aside …. on to the beat down !

Pledge        Disclaimer.      Warm up as follows

low slow squats ( mentioning to straighten backs ) x10

Seal Jacks x10

Plank Jack x10

finally the   Piece de resistance….

Howler monkeys ( I believe that is what they are called …. I thought I came up with a new activity only to see that last week Hipaa has found this , dusted it off and inserted into one of his routines !)

i had the pax to tighten ranks in the circle ( tension and mumbles began) turn 1/4 to left …. Monkey Humpers!!! That is the Howler Monkey …. it was at this time that we became aware that in order to “seem” to be looking elsewhere that Turtle man noticed and asked if Breaker Breaker has a family member that bought a rotary brick as one carried Stinett family name .

x10 ……. no scratch that !!! There was so much mumble chatter continued another 10 !

word of advice about me ……






I thrive and Love mumble chatter …. it keeps me going !!! 

All these done in cadence

short mosey to parking lot and at far end karaoke facing buildings at other end switch to facing rail road tracks

some duscussion of whether running was still off menu as I heard mention of my …what was it?…. 54 5ks in the last few days?

move to bridge … new activity alligator merkins …. advance to arm lengths merkin across bridge …. “ safely mosey” ( no crosswalk here) to other side of bridge … now crab walk….. several struggled but rather than push them too hard I had rest of pax save the rest for later … too much to do today !

onto another new place and exercise … dircectly across from parking lot most of us use look across street and you will see a long line of posts set in concrete …. it was here we slalomed down being mindful that the last few set in curbing creating tripping hazard.  Kudos to Island for showing all how slim he is even using the two set one inch apart from each other! Other end 20 squats … back through 2 more times … move behind these building to long low yellow rail beside tattoo parlor for 2 rounds of 10 dips and 10 derkins.

Now for the run over to DSS and back side of parking lot with an elevation for something I’ve wanted to use for a long time and have never seen / read of its use …. Burp back mountain … it was at this time that Stone Cold Offered private viewings of Broke back Mountain but I had to wrestle all back in line advising them of how close we were to the police station and to settle down!!! The activity requires partners … p1 does burpees while p2 nurs up hill and then returns running forward…. the usual count was called of 100 …. but as I and others were guickly getting gassed and we still had one more fun activity we completed 75 and moved on back to start .

I’ be been trying to incorporate more partner activity as that is another area I’ve been s little remiss in and love to work out with as many different pax as possible …. so…. choose new partner! P1 does sit-ups while p2 holds others ankles to perform 10 plank jacks …. switch off for 5 of each .

lastly we had more time left than I thought so we did Mary  ….Gastone picked …. I think you know …. and you probably know the count too ….other activities were am hammers squats lbcs Freddie Merck’s and I remember Stone Cold asking if time left …. I said 20 seconds …. he called 5 burpees and unfortunately Broke was left out as time was called .

dont forget Quichemas Dec 15
