The PT Test NOT

YHC offered to Q The Yank on PT Test Saturday for those pax that did not want 250 reps of the same thing over and over and over and…

After a standard warm-up of SSHs, toy soldiers, Don Qs and burpees, the HIMs grabbed a couple of coupons out of The Chariot and moseyed to the pit.

The workout went something like this:

11s with wall sit presses at one end and jump squat presses at the other. Oh, and a pavee (not a blockee or brickee) each time crossing the mid-point.

After a 1-2 count off, a 2 team Dora was called.  Team 1 ran the outside of the pit while Team 2 performed an exercise (merkins, wall sit punches, MNCs, LBCs, and squats with arms held high), with a flap jack after each exercise. Everything was done with the coupons. YHC likes to hear mumble chatter, and a non-counting block o’ reps greatly aided in that endeavor.

With plenty of time to spare, suicides were in order using extra coupons to mark the turn around. Start with 5 hip slappers, run to the first coupon and do one pavee, run back. Do 5 dirty hook ups, run to the second coupon and do two pavees, and so on. 5 big bois, and 5 diamonds finished up round 1. Round 2 was in reverse, beginning with 10 diamonds, running to coupon 4 and do 4 pavees, and suicide back down.

A quick mosey back to The Chariot to drop off the coupons, and YHC asked Dirt for a full set of Dirty Calves at the stairs. Mumble chatter was high! Just enough time for some Mary and time was called.

Welcome to Planet Fitness

7 showed for a gloomy boot camp on a Wednesday morning.

The Thang:


30 SSH while we waited on Hushpuppy arrive from his car.

Mosey to wall beside Planet Fitness.

Wall Sit, then Wall sit with hands above head. Then March in cadence to 30.

30 Monkey Humpers

Lunge walk about 30 Yards. 20 Yards to the right then left. Then backwards back to the wall.

20 Jane Fonda’s. Plank with belly facing up and thrust hips up and down to a 3 count.

50 Squats.

Then back to the wall. Rinse and repeat with a few changes along the way. The Squats went down by 10 each of the 4 sets. We added Pickle pounders after the Jane Fonda’s. We also changed from Lunges to Karaoke, then to running.

In the mix of all of that we added a variety of calf raises to further the leg workout but focusing on the lower leg.

Mosey our way back to the wall at the bank.

20 Incline Merkins, 20 Dips, and 20 CDD’s. Rinse and Repeat.

Mosey to start with 10 seconds to spare. (Hushpuppy, questioned or challenged that I might not make it back in time.

But we did.

The Moleskin:

Great group this morning. We had some Mumble Chatter or really it was more of Clavin adding sound effects to some of the workout.  But, he seemed confident that his wife would approve of the workout and might increase stamina or something he mentioned.

Also, Stinky Bird killed a turkey or at least that is what he tells us. He pounded his chest while saying this as if it was a giant Moose or a lion. But, good job Stinky Bird. Whoopee would be proud.
