10 men showed at Gashouse for the bootcamp portion of the AO on Saturday. As usual EC was done. The Nantan even put in 10!


We did some stuff then we headed over to the library parking lot.

The Thang:

Borrowed from a workout I saw Carpex do(so if you complained then you must be saying you’re a wussy compared to those guys). The word wussy spelled slightly different may or may not have been used several times during this workout because sometimes a man just needs to be told. Not to beat him down but to lift him up. Look at it as a motivator.

Broad jump 2 parking spaces and do the following exercises.


10-Bonnie Blairs


Do this 2 more sets then bear crawl back to the start(6 parking spaces)

That’s 1 round. Do 5 rounds. We made it through about 4 and we were 30 minutes in so I switched it up to do some Wordle.

If you haven’t played wordle it a word game where you try to figure out what the 5 letter word is for the day. Your first guess is just that, a guess. It then tells you if any of the letters are in the correct spot or if they are in the word just in the wrong spot. Easy enough but surprisingly difficult sometimes. The group had an advantage as they could all help each other. I’m not sure who came up with this as a workout. I saw someone in the nation put it out a week or so ago. So for each letter that was correct and in the correct spot we would do 10 reps of an exercise. For each one that was correct and in the wrong spot we would do 20 reps. For each one that was wrong we would do 30 reps. The first word was ALIVE and they guessed it on the fourth try. Well Uptown Girl pulled this one out. Everyone else was stumped. We ran low on time and only made it through 2 guesses on the second word. It was kind of funny because we were approaching Easter Sunday and the first word being alive lead everyone to think it was a theme. So they kept guessing words that went in that direction. It was STEAL 🙂 Anyway it went pretty good. It’s a little much to keep up with for my taste but still not as difficult as a Short Sale Q.
