  • PAX: Whoopee (R), Roscoe (R), JJ, Watts Up (R), Nutria, Tricycle, Defib (R), Bubba Sparxxx

We had 9 PAX, 10 burpees, 4 wheelbarrow runs, 2 missing shirts, 1 busted shin, and one dermatologist reference.  EZ should have been there.  Here’s what I remember…

Arrive to a man down.  Oh, he’s just stretching.  Whoopee broke out his cobra at some point too.  He just can’t wait to show that thing off.  Lots of talk about something as the clock hit 0530.  YHC can’t remember.  Probably something stupid like “bore-ophyll”.  Time to go.

The Thang:

  • 10 x SSH (IC)
  • 10 x Don Quixotes (IC)

Second exercise in.  Whoopee found Lake Whoopeegonnagetcha and jumped in the puddle.  Repeatedly.  In cadence.  It was an impressive display of rhythm and coordination, unless you were JJ or Bubba Sparxxx, in which case it just felt like your leg got peed on.

  • 10 x Imperial Walkers (IC)
  • 10 x Shoulder Taps (IC)
  • 10 x Mountain Climbers (IC)
  • 10 x Nolan Ryans R (IC)
  • 10 x Nolan Ryans L (IC)
  • 10 x Mike Tysons (IC)
  • 10 x Dying Cockroaches (IC)
  • 10 x Pretzel Crunches L (IC)
  • 10 x Pretzel Crunches R (IC)
  • 25 x Toe Touches (IC)

Burgundy and Drug Dog took off down the street.  Let’s follow them.  We moseyed down Neal Hawkins towards Martha’s.  Burgundy and Drug Dog took a hard right to the neighborhood.  I guess we’re on our own.  To the maintenance building for

  • 5 x Burpees (OYO)

We started with 9, we were already down to 8.  Nutria raced ahead, so we went chasing.  The long way down to the picnic tables by the turd shack for

  • 5 x Burpees (OYO)

Enough of that.  YHC announced to those listening that the name of the game today was “Wheelbarrow”.  Whether you like it or not, we’re gonna partner up and put in work.  8 of us partnered up.  Whoopee partnered with the only person who could put up with him–nobody.  And we got after it.

  • Wheelbarrow across the parking lot
  • Switch
  • Wheelbarrow back

Seemed like a long way.  We’ll cut it in half for the rest of them.  No time.

So in pairs, we did a set of 3 exercises for 50 total reps between the pairs.  Up first

  • 50 x Dips
  • 50 x Derkins
  • 50 x Decline Peter Parkers (count left side)

So if it was split evenly, that’s 25 each.  YHC used to teach math.

Decline Peter Parkers led to a loud bang and a quick awareness that a shin met a bench.  We’ve all done it on these stupid Decline Peter Parkers.  Whose idea were those anyways?

Back to the parking lot, going only to the parking spots in the middle this time

  • Wheelbarrow to the middle of the lot
  • Switch
  • Wheelbarrow back

Next up was the 100 round.  100 reps of each split between each partner in a pair.

  • 100 x Squats
  • 100 x American Hammers
  • 100 x Superman Pullups

Shirts came off, like a jersey swap at the end of a soccer match.  Autographs were signed.  PAX tried to get the maintenance crew to take the Weinke as it lay like a piece of park trash.  It was stupid.  EZ would have said so, but YHC thought he heard Watts Up and JJ say it in his place.

Another round of

  • Wheelbarrow to the middle of the lot
  • Switch
  • Wheelbarrow back

And after 100 comes 150.  Math teacher, remember?  We broke out the Common Core

  • 150 x Monkey Humpers
  • 150 x Flutter Kicks
  • 150 x Penguins

Roscoe talked about his dermatologist.  The wheels started falling off the wagon.  The name of the game is “Wheelbarrow”.  Things got foggy, but wheelbarrows turned into Bear Crawls, but not for everyone.  On we pushed.

  • Wheelbarrow to the middle of the lot
  • Switch
  • Wheelbarrow back

In hindsight, YHC probably should have known that was a lot of reps.  More was planned, but time was running short, and the Tysons had yet to be properly Miked.  We moseyed to the first light pole on the way up the drive out of the park.  Great spot for…

Route 55

  • Starting with the first light pole and 1 x Mike Tyson, add a Mike Tyson at each light pole all the way out the gate.  10 at the top, for a total of 55 Mike Tysons.

Plenty of work up til that point, but that was a tough way to close it.  By the end, YHC was smoked.  We moseyed in, right on time to shut it down.  That’s enough for one day.

Great group today.  And Martha’s just the best.  Everyone knows her well, yet she’s no prude and always puts out.  Thankful for the opportunity to do whatever that was with all of us.  Thanks for the push.
