It was a perfect morning to get out and push the rock at the Yank. There was plenty of EC being had by ruckers and runners alike. You can’t beat springtime in God’s country. This is what happened…

WarmUp – The patented Sargento Right Over Left IC, Don Quixote’s IC and of course Goofballs IC – Countoff so we know how many of us there are.

Mosey around the corner to the back end of the parking space road parallel to the train tracks. Lunge walk between spaces and do a burpee at each line. Plank for the six. YHC’s keen senses alerted him that a train was en route and realized we needed to get across quick or else successful completion of the weinke would be in jeopardy. Sprint across the tracks as the crossing arms were coming down! Made it with a full tally of PAX per the countoff.

Mosey to the Abbey Alley for a round of new stuff. Line up against Nelly’s wall for Australian Plank Jacks IC. Alternate to Wall Sits with air presses IC. Back to the Australian Plank Jacks, then Wall sits too.

Mosey around the corner to the back of Primal Brewing where the day before over a beer at Bottoms Up, YHC had contemplated the next day’s Q. This is what was created.

The Thang: DOCKS (as in, the loading dock feel of Primal’s outside area)

Partner up, #1 does each exercise, #2 runs to the end of the dock, up the stairs, back to the other end and bear crawl the handicap ramp. Each letter represents the following exercise. Do 50 reps of each.

D = Diamond Merkins

O = One Arm Pickle Pounders (thanks to my M for suggesting this one)

C = Copperhead Squats

K = Knerkins (aka Chuck Norris Merkins)

S = Scorpion Dry Docks

This was a beast of a routine so to recover we listened to Moby’s “Flower” for some Bring Sally Up. It was a crowd pleaser for sure. As a second act, rewind the DOCKS routine but do 25 reps this time around.

Mosey back toward the start but stop off at the mural wall beside city hall for a round of 11’s. On one side do Dirty Hook Ups, at the other side do dips. This sucked too.

Head toward the new pavilion for the last hurrah.

Mucho Abbo! Do in cadence reps of the following: Sleeping Hillbillies, Flutterkicks, Dying Cockroaches, Rosalitas, Protractors, V-Ups, Oblique Crunches, Nolan Ryans

Pledge of Allegiance. Time’s up! Thanks for the opportunity to lead men!
