Switch to WWII and plank jacks with same numbers of reps.
Still time left so I asked Slaw and Oompa for two more exercises. They gave me Mike Tyson’s and shoulder taps. That was the final nail in the coffin.

4 minutes left for some Mary. V-ups, American Hammers, LBC’s and Flutters were called. Time!

Gastonia community foundation run. Sign up we are pushing 4 chairs for Speed for Need.

Sorry bout that Wirenut

8 men showed at different times to scatter, smother, and cover Dallas with runs.  Weather was great and the fellowship was even better.  We all reconvened at the parking lot right on time.  YHC had planned to be the Q but realized that Wirenut had agreed the week prior when I was out of town.  I already had my phone out so I just took the care of the pledge and COT.  Broke prayed us out and Wirenut lead the Q-source topic of Chapter 7 “The Heart of the Shepherd”.  Next week YHC actually has the Q and will wrap up “The Way of the Shepherd”  with the final chapter and 7 principals summary.

Prayer Request:  Gumby, Tesla, a couple others but the wind in my mic covered the voices

Helpin a Brotha Out!

11 HIMs showed to start the weekend off right with a Downtown beatdown!  BOS was down in his back but showed anyway to ask if someone could take the Q.  In steps Balljoint with the pledge and what would surely be considered a Westside approved warmup of SSHs, Gravel Pickers, Abe Vigodas, Toy Soldiers & Burpees if I remember correctly.  Then Balljoint passed the baton to YHC for some “on the fly” everything!  We mosied to the wall along S York for a couple of rounds of Wall Sits and Dirty Hook-ups, then onto Main Street for some Route 66 (Burpees) then we reversed back with Big Boys.  Next we moved to the Post Office for some 11s.  Wirenut called squats at the top & LBCs at the bottom.  We left there and mosied to McQuitter’s wall for some Step-ups & Dips.  I’m pretty sure we did something back up to the start but I can’t remember what so I’ll just say we mosied!  We climbed the Pavilion with 5 Calf-raises each step.  I had a really stupid idea for a new exercise come to me whilst we were doing 11s (must have been the oxygen deprivation) so I dubbed it the “Ukraine Resistance” in honor of those fitting against the Russians.  It’s basically a Boo-yah Merkin but with both hands applying resistance to your partner’s.  It didn’t work but I think it could if we had only thought to ask someone to stop our feet from sliding.  Maybe another day!  We wrapped it up with a round of Mary.
