The 12 Days of April?

Plenty of HIM came out to witness the inspired leadership of the new Storm site Q Pilgrim’s Progress. Too bad he had me as the first Q of his tenure, nowhere to go but up from the bottom! Here’s what happened…

Disclaimer, no FNGs.

Warmup – Goofballs, Don Quixotes, the patented Sargento Left over Right stretch.

Mosey around the parking lot to get the blood flowing and arrive back at the start. Yesterday was my 18th wedding anniversary (poor girl). In honor of that momentous occasion, YHC decided to put together an appropriate music playlist for the PAX’s listening enjoyment while rocks were pushed. It was lovely.

The Thang – The 12 Days of April –

This was a totally unique workout that has nothing to do with any other time of year. The rhythm of the workout would coincidentally go to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas song. Pretty cool how that worked out. These exercises were done in accumulating fashion with each round building on the last.

On the first day of April, my true love gave to me…

  • 1 Burpee
  • 2nd Day – 2 Jump Squats
  • 3rd – 3 American Hammers
  • 4th – 4 Merkins
  • 5th – 5 High Knees
  • 6th – 6 Big Boy or WWI situps
  • 7th – 7 Diamond Merkins
  • 8th – 8 Jump Lunges
  • 9th – 9 Oblique Crunches each side
  • 10th – 10 Hand Release Merkins
  • 11th – 11 Monkey Humpers
  • 12th – 12 Turkish Getups

That was so much fun we headed off on a mosey around the block. At the stop sign we did monkey humpers until the 6 was in. At the roundabout at the artwork we bear crawled the outside ring which was a really long way. Mosey back to the start.

This killed so much time that we only were able to get 4 rounds of the 12 Days of April, however we started this in reverse descending order. We did all 12 days, then 11, 10 and ended on 9.

Time! Thanks for the opportunity to lead today men. It was great. Roscoe didn’t even try to hijack the JBL either so that was a win. Aye!
