YHC always learns a few valuable things on Thursday mornings at The Goat. This particular day, after a short disclaimer, YHC was excited to share a few gems discovered from the F3 “Exicon.” Skipped warm-up and got down to business with a mosey across the street to the foot of the bridge for some modified “BLIMP’s.” (The Weinke called for “BLIMPES” but time ran out after the “P’s”.)
YHC made it more interesting than usual with the “BLIMPs” by modifying as follows:
B = 8-count Body Builders for city-side PAX while park-side PAX Bear crawl across bridge, one way only, run a lap around the park and back. (The bridge-crossing and lap-running took much longer than expected, so all bridge-crossing exercises were cut down to halfway across bridge from here on. Note to self: It takes longer than you think to run across the bridge and around the path and back at Goat Island Park. ) The train appropriately rolled through at the end of round “B” meriting 5 burpees for all.
L = LBC’s for city-side PAX while park-side PAX Lunge-walk across bridge, one way only, run a lap around the park and back.
I = Indian run around town square for city-side PAX while park-side PAX cross bridge doing Imperial Walkers, one way only, run a lap around the park and back.
M = Mountain Climber Merkins (which PAX chose over Mickey Mouse Merkins) for city-side PAX while park-side PAX run a lap around the park and back. Weinke called for “Monkey Jumpers” across the bridge, but YHC abandoned that requirement given “Note to self” mentioned above. Conversation between MCM’s led to realization that the Chicago hit “25 or 6 to 4” is less well known among the PAX than you would think. Orange Man enlightened us all. The title was YHC’s impression of the song title before looking up the back story, which is worth a read: https://www.songfacts.com/facts/chicago/25-or-6-to-4
P = Peter Parkers for city-side PAX while park-side PAX cross bridge doing Paula Abduls (look it up), one way only, run a lap around the park and back.
After this, it was back to the flag. If time had allowed, the Weinke called for E2K’s, El Capitans (pure torture), SSH and Sneaky Gorillas. YHC will surely take advantage of the next opportunity to introduce Sneaky Gorillas to the PAX.
