Said title was a topic of discussion during a 24-degree morning at the Goat. Someone mentioned that South Carolina issued a press release to explain how they calculate positive Covid rates. Being curious, YHC found the details here:

Math lesson aside, the gloomy morning began with YHC and 11 PAX braving the cold for a thorough beatdown.  The Thang:

Warm up with seal jacks and Imperial walkers (15x each IC).

Mosey to Floyd and Blackies for “telephone pole suicides” up the hill (5 poles).  10x hand release merkins at the bottom; 10x big boy situps at successive telephone poles.  One additional wrinkle – one burpee when passing any telephone pole on the way up the hill. 

Mosey to the gazebo for the next sequence – one PAX names an exercise and runs a lap around the “square” (solo) while remaining PAX perform said exercise AMRAP. This is followed by everyone running a lap.  Tesla called plank jacks and took the first lap before YHC could claim the privilege.  Rinse and repeat with Flutter kicks, Hello Dollys, American Hammers, CDD’s, step-ups, and several other rounds with a brief interruption of 5 burpees for the passing train.  Time ran out just before Pillager had a turn to subject the rest of the PAX to his preferred method of torture.

Announcements: Extinction run 2/13; Q-source
