Midweek can be an easy time to get distracted with things like  work or family and keep us from a regular routine. Credit goes to the HIM who posted on hump day. There were a few who did EC and even a visitor from down in Georgia! Excellent, now what should we do? In preparing for the workout the day before, nothing was really standing out as a workout for YHC so why not just figure it out as we go! Here’s what happened…

One thing that did work was the playlist that YHC put together and, other than an initial threat from Roscoe about messing with the tunes, everyone enjoyed the musical accompaniment. I think.


Warmup – Goofballs IC, Don Quixote’s IC, Right over Left IC

Mosey to the parking lot behind the school where we can pump up the jams without disturbing the neighbors.

The Thang – Dora 1234

Partner up, while partner 1 runs to the end of the lot and back, partner 2 does 100 WWI situps, 200 Merkins, 300 Squats and 400 Air Presses. That got the blood flowing!

Circle up around the speaker for some ab work. We did Flutterkicks, LBCs and Dying Cockroaches then we did a lap. Come back in time for Sweetheart to join us from out of nowhere for Bring Sally Up, which REALLY sucked today. Then we did Oblique Crunches and something else for abs.

Mosey to the front to wrap up. 10 Burpees OYO in honor of our visitor who apparently lives for burpees. We deliberated on what a sad life that must be. A lot more Goofballs IC. 5 more burpees OYO. We almost got to do Abe Vigoda’s but time ran out!

Thanks for the opportunity to lead today men. It was fun having a totally random visitor who was in town from the Atlanta area for a job interview. He (F3 name Farm Country) said he chose The Ricky Bobby based on the name and the fact that it isn’t a running workout. That’s awesome! It was also fun sharing how the AO got it’s name from Talladega Nights being filmed there, not after a couple of our former Nantan’s, despite their lobbying for that. We still love you guys! He was impressed regardless.
