Strong group of 11 at The Sandlot for new twists on old favorites, a Phonics lesson, and some bad math.  Here’s what I remember:

The Thang

  • 10 x SSH (IC)
  • 10 x Gravel Pickers (IC)
  • 10 x Hillbillies (IC)
  • 10 x Toy Soldiers (IC)
  • 10 x Elwoods (IC)
    • High knees with your arms moving in sync right above your knees, Elwood Blues-style
  • 10 x Dying Cockroaches (IC)
  • 10 x Heels to Heaven (IC)
  • 10 x Mountain Climbers (IC)
  • 10 x Mike Tysons (IC)
  • 10 x Burpees (OYO)

Frogger across Neal Hawkins to the front of the bank that’s still a bank for

  • Ab Alphabet (A-M as in “Mancy”)
    • Start from 6 inches with both toes pointed and write the alphabet in the air with your feet.  Capital letters, cursive, doesn’t matter.  You v. You
  • M-Hold (20 Count)
    • Hold the American Hammer position, only don’t hammer.  Q counts down from 20
  • 15 x Spatchcocks (IC)
    • Nantan-approved with PAX mumbling “Spatchcock” after every rep

Triple Nickel time, but more complicated, because, well, you know.

  • Bear Crawl to Far Side
  • Far Side – 5 x Bobby Hurleys
  • Crawl Bear to Near Side
  • Near Side – 5 x Backwards Lunges (Count Left Side Only)
  • Repeato x 4

Every once in a while, YHC would yell out “Hold it Now” and Bear Crawling PAX had to go to the bottom of the Merkin, the “Balls to the Ground” position, and hold it, and the PAX doing exercises had to hold the People’s Chair.  When YHC yelled out “Hit It”, the PAX would finish a burpee from wherever they were in the process and continue on with their work.  Seemed easy enough, and nobody screwed it up, so that’s good.  Overall, this was tougher than expected, but in a good way.

We wrapped up and headed back to the back of the bank to finish up

  • Ab Alphabet (N-Z as in “Nancy”)
  • M-Hold (20 Count)
  • 10 x American Hammers (IC)
  • 15 x Spatchcocks (IC)

Remaining time was put to good use with the Greene Game.  As a reminder, the goal is to accumulate as many points as possible in the time you’ve got however you choose to get them.

Point options for this day were:

  • 1 Lap around the bank – 1 Point
  • 5 x Burpees – 1 Point
  • 10 x Mike Tysons – 1 Point
  • 20 x Flutter Kicks (Count Left Side) – 1 Point
  • 20 x Freddie Mercuries (Count Left Side) – 1 Point

We had about 12 minutes to get after it.  Here’s the results:

  • Nutria – 21
  • Whoopee – 20 (I’m pretty sure he, and just about everyone else made up their number.  He did a lot of burpees though)
  • Flintstone – 20
  • Orangeman – 17
  • Tricycle – 15
  • Pavarotti – 15
  • Cinderella – 13
  • Dirt – 13
  • Wonder – 10
  • Defib – 10
  • Jar Jar – 6

Back to the Flag for COT

Prayer Requests:

  • Cinderella’s Parents
  • Turtleman
  • Whoopee’s Upcoming Surgery
  • YHC’s 2.1 starts driving

Fun morning.  Lots of sweat and stupidity.  Solid mumble chatter.  Good times.

Next up: Cinderella

Til next time
