There was a rare Dirt-free EC session held this morning.  Shout-out to EZ Rider and Flintstone for joining YHC.  Its held almost every Monday, so come join us.

When 0530 hit, there were 10 joined around YHC.   None were FNGs, but JK2 and Bob the Builder were among those gathered.  With no FNGs, only a basic disclaimer, followed by The Pledge of Allegiance.  As the PAX gathered in the gloom, all examined the black sphere sitting in the center of the circle.  None dared touch it,..


15 Imperial Squat Walkers OYO


Main Event:

YHC grabbed the sphere and threw it to Stinky Bird.  While he put his hands on it, he wasn’t completely prepared for the 10# it was.   The group in tow moseyed down Riverwood Pkwy, stopping periodically at various street lights.  When we stopped, the PAX performed the following exercises, while the person with ball performed overhead slams.

10 Merkins
12 Squats
14 Big Boys
1 Burpee

Upon completion of said exercises, the ball was passed to another attendee.

Normally Riverwood Pkwy will be “busy” if there is one or two cars during an entire session.  In the gloom of today, we may have hit double-digits regarding traffic, including a semi with trailer.  Undaunted, we continued up and down until about 1/2 the PAX had their chance with the ball.  As “luck” would have it, we were right next to the doctors office, so into that parking lot we went.

Circle up (close circle).  High-plank.  Pass the ball around the circle with your left hand.  Repeat with the right.   Two failed to follow instructions, so 2 burpee penalty for all.

Circle up again.  Low-plank.  Repeat, but pass to your neighbor’s feet/waist.  Thus each had to use both hands to pass the ball around.

Mosey on up Riverwood, repeating the process until we arrived at The DG.  (2 PAX left with ball duty).  Circle Up.

Pax with ball calls an exercise, PAX performs the exercise while PAX with ball slams the ball around the circle.

Time is getting short, so head back to the flag, stopping twice more to complete the circuit for all in attendance.

Bob the Builder (JK2 2.0 (14yrs old) ) had lots of energy left, so he was given the ball for the final leg back to the flag.  Not sure, but it either got stolen or he passed it off along the way.

Arrived back at the flag with one minute or less left.  SSH until 0615 hit.
