A small group of 5 dedicated PAX (YHC included) started a pleasantly chilly day at the Ricky Bobby.  Was it the projected 50% chance of rain (which evaporated during the wee hours of the night) that kept the rest of the PAX in the fartsack?  Or was it YHC’s pledge from last Thursday’s backblast from the Goat to introduce the Sneaky Gorilla?  Whatever the reason, YHC led the PAX with a warmup of Seal Jacks and Toy Soldiers (10xIC each).  YHC then introduced and demonstrated the Sneaky Gorilla as described before modifying it to eliminate the 180-degree turn. Done properly, the Sneaky Gorilla requires a combination of strength, flexibility, and balance.  YHC called 5x each way IC (modified version).  Enough silliness, on to The Thang, but the Sneaky Gorilla will make a reappearance…

Mosey to the neighborhood for a classic BLIMPS escalator. At every 5th streetlight we progressed through BLIMPS in escalating fashion:
5th light = 5 Burpees

* Interrupt regular workout routine for Sneaky Gorillas past Sargento’s house. *

10th light = 5 Burpees plus 10 Lunges (total)
15th light = 5 Burpees, 10 Lunges, 15 Imperial walkers
and so on with 20 Merkins, 25 Plank jacks, and 30 Squats.

At this point, rinse and repeat but starting at 10 reps and subbing as follows for core focused BLIMPS:
10 Big Boys
15 LBC’s

* Interrupt regular workout routine for Sneaky Gorillas past Sargento’s house. *

20 “Imperial” flutter kicks (because who says flutter kicks can’t be Imperial?)
25 ‘Merican Hammers (because if Buckeye is creative even if he can’t spell)
30 Phreddy Mercurys

Unlike last Thursday at the Goat, today’s workout was well timed, ending with 1 minute of “toe shooters” courtesy of Buckeye. 

Pledge, announcements.

Prayers:  Queso’s shoulder

Honored and privileged to lead,
