When YHC was trying to design today’s weinke, YHC wanted something different.  In trolling Twitter, YHC saw a link to a F3 Alpha (Alpharetta) backblast.  So you have F3 Alpha to blame for today’s events.

0530 hit with ten joining YHC.  With no FNG’s, a short disclaimer was given.  Spotting a late arrival, we knocked out The Pledge while waiting.  Thus bringing the total to twelve.

The train schedule for this week was different than most Fridays as there was a train passing as we recited The Pledge. Soooooooo, 5 Burpees.

Well, that was enough like a warmup, lets go.

Mosey toward the Social Services building.  Zombie Walk the bridge.

(Traffic was against us, so plank while we wait.  YHC failed to see all the traffic and almost sent the PAX (really BOS) into traffic.  Luckily this did not happen.   SORRY!

Line up along one curb in the lower parking lot.

Super 21s with bearcrawls. PAX lined up did 21 (Merkins, LBCs and Squats) then bearcrawled to the other side for 18 reps of the same three exercises. Back and forth decreasing the rep counts to 15, 12, 9, 6, and 3.

Move to the center.

3 Sets of 22 Dying Cockroaches with a lap to the upper parking lot and back in between.

It was so much fun, lets do it again, but with American Hammers.

Meander across the street to the flatter ATM parking lot.

Circle up for a Bear Crawl Ring of Fire Mucho Chesto: Start bear crawling in a circle, then stop (roughly every ninety degrees) and hold plank while we go around the circle doing 10 merkins, changing style each time – diamond, ranger, regular ,stagger left, stagger right then resume bear crawling.

Since the Super 21s, there have been train sounds.  SA claims 3 have gone by.  While not supported by all in attendance,  we go ahead and knock out 5 more Burpees.  Having had the Ring of Fire interrupted for an ATM user, and another wanting in, we move to the upper parking lot of Social Services.  5 more Burpees, a lap down to the lower parking lot and back for 5 more.

Meander until we get to MLK and then Mosey toward home.  Sprint the bridge.

Time for some mary.
