So today is April 3, 2021 or another way to put it is 4-3-21. Thanks to Mayor for being critical, I guess that could be called candor. The idea came to mind that it would be a theme called counting day. Of course a playlist needed to be crafted for the occasion, more from this later.

There were 8 HIMs present for the Gashouse bootcamp. After YHC led the warmup of Goofballs, Don Quixotes and the patented Sargento Right over Left stretch, we said the Pledge of Allegiance. Then the groups split up with the bootcampers heading to the Grier track.

Before leaving the start area, YHC got the trusty JBL Flip speaker for the themed playlist. First up was “Final Countdown” by Europe, followed by such hits as “Three is the Magic Number” by Blind Melon, “25 or 6 to 4” by Chicago, “One” by Metallica and the classic “The Song of the Count” by Count von Count from Sesame Street. Look it up!

The Thang: The Hindenburg BLIMP

On the track at approximately each of the four corners going clockwise, the PAX would perform reps of each exercise as follows:

  • 1st round – 10 Burpees (total of 40)
  • 2nd round- 20 Lunges each leg (total 80)
  • 3rd round – 30 Imperial Walkers each leg (120)
  • 4th round – 40 Freddy Mercury’s (160)
  • 5th round – 50 Plank Jacks (200)

Mosey down to the creek on the nature trail behind the museum. At the bottom of the hill YHC explained the partner routine: Heartbreak 1,2,3. At the bottom of the hill, partner 1 does the exercise while partner 2 runs to the top of the hill and back. The exercises were 100 Werkins, 200 Dying Cockroaches 300 Bobby Hurleys. We made it all the way to 100 Bobby Hurleys before time was up.

Mosey to the start by nurring up the hill then regular mosey the rest of the way. Time’s up, thanks for letting me lead men.
