YHC has a habit of trying to get just a couple more things done around the office before leaving to go places. This can lead to cutting it close when needing to be somewhere at a particular time. Such was the case leading up to the workout Tuesday at Midoriyama. Of course, when traffic doesn’t help, it means that you’re 3 minutes late for your Q and Freight has been leading the warm like a HIM would. Anyway, after a couple of snide remarks, here’s what happened…

Mosey to the nice parking lot at the across the street annex. Line up on the short side of the lot for The Thang

NCAA Tournament Suicides (not really suicides, just a run to the other end and back) This was fresh off the beatdown that Baylor put on the weak west coast Zags the night before. Do the same number of reps as the round and after each round of exercises the PAX runs.

  • Round of 64 – CDDs
  • Round of 32 – Big Boy sit ups
  • Sweet 16 – Diamond Merkins
  • Elite 8 – Lunges each leg
  • Final 4 – Merkins
  • Final 2 – 12 V-Ups because 2 isn’t enough
  • Winner – 1 Burpee which is 1 too many IMO

The PAX switched from the long side of the lot for our next session of pain

NIT Tournament Suicides – To make up for the fact that there is one less round in this tournament and the distance is shorter, the PAX would bear crawl from one side to the other.

  • Round of 32 – American Hammers each side
  • Round of 16 – Jump Squats
  • Round of 8 – Mike Tysons
  • Round of 4 – Turkish Getups
  • Last 2 – 8 Count Body Builders
  • Winner – 1 Burpees

There was time left so YHC called for a lap around the paved trail through the woods so we could stretch our legs.

Back to where the big tournament was played. This time, we did the same exercises and the same count for each, just in reverse. It was a lot of fun, trust me.

Mosey back to the start for a brief warm down of Goofballs, Don Quixotes and the patented Sargento Left over Right. Times up, thanks for putting up with me men.

Prayer Requests – Pray for the whole GSM family and the people in Rock Hill after that tragedy. Roscoe’s coworker’s son passed after battling cancer. Oompa’s neighbor who passed.

Announcements – PT Test, Convergence, Mayor’s 2.0 cleanup this Saturday, Short Sale’s challenge, TronMoss 5k

YHC took us out.
