It was a great morning to post at the Fighting Yank today. The humidity was as and so were the hopes for a good sweat. Good thing, you’re in the right place! This is what happened…

Disclaimer, no FNGs.

Warmup – Don Quixotes IC

Pledge of Allegiance

Mosey down toward the Pit to drop off the Bunker guys. What remained were 10 of the most brave HIM in the region.

The Thang

E – E2K x25 each side then 25 Goofballs IC

Countoff then mosey up the road to the new construction past Buckeye’s office.

N – Nolan Ryans x25 each side then 25 Goofballs IC. It was at this point some passersby remarked that we looked really enthusiastic. So awesome because we are!!!

Mosey some more, taking a left down the quant street of Poplar until we ended up at 1st Presbyterian Church.

T – The Chinook x50 each direction (clockwise the counter-clockwise) then 25 Goofballs IC

Mosey around the corner past the new houses and down to Davis Park.

H – Hairy Rockets x25 IC. There was some consternation and dispute about what this exercise actually is but YHC confirmed, after multiple readings of the thing in the Nation’s exicon, that it was what it was. Another 25 Goffballs IC to wrap up.

Mosey over to the abandoned middle school for the next leg.

U – Up Downs – Some peeps might think these were just burpees but you actually have to put your chest to the ground and burpees do not, so there’s that. We did 10 with varying leghts of chopping feet in between like in football practice.

Mosey down the street…wait! 25 Goofballs IC

Mosey down the street to the parking lot across from Orangeman’s abode.

M – Monkey Humpers x 25 IC. Point the business end of these things at his house and feel the burn! 25 Goofballs IC

Mosey past Orangeman’s toward Holy Angels where we ended at the covered picnic area.

S – Squats x10 IC because time is running short.

Mosey toward downtown stopping in front of one of the stores in the shade.

I – Imperial Squat Walkers (Sargento style) x10 or so

Mosey again, this time to the old town hall.

A – Alabama Ass Kickers – we did something but I’m not sure what. A few Goofballs for good measure.

Mosey down to the statue for the last round.

S- San Antonio Shuffle’s x5 OYO.

That’s time! We got in almost 3 miles on our journey and Freight said he lost 2 pounds of sweat. Success!!!

We went a little out of order spelling ENTHUSIASM but we couldn’t pass up the chance to do some Monkey Humpers for Orangeman. Keep pushing the rock and remember, “To be enthusiastic, you have to act enthusiastic!”

Thank’s for the opportunity to lead men! AYE!!!
