It’s been a while since YHC posted at Tequila Sunrise so I grabbed a Q from Radar and made my way back to by far the worst lit AO in Gashouse. With all the money in Belmont it seems they would put up at least a few lights at the school. PAX rolled in all the way up to 0530 and we ended up with a total of 12. After a warmup followed by a lap around the block we moved on to the Thang.
Sheldon Cooper (with modifications)
10 Burpees, 10 Perfect Form Merkins (thanks to Freight for bringing this exercise to my attention, a hand release merkin with shoulder tap at the top), 10 butt touch Squats (butt has to hit the curb), 10 Big Boys (must touch your shins at the top). Follow it up with a lap around the bus drive then rinse and repeat with 9 reps, 8, 7….all the way to 1.
After another lap around the block we finished up with 5 minutes of Mary. Freddie Mercury’s, Flutters, Nolan Ryan’s, More Burpees and some other stuff until time.
The Cooper is a routine that I despise. It seems like someone (SA) always Q’s it on the hottest, most humid days of the year when the workout is packed with bat flippers and it’s a struggle to keep up with the pack. The reason I called it this morning was to make the point that sometimes we have to do things we don’t like in order to get better. Change is difficult and a lot of times we can’t do it on our own. We need others around us to push us and hold us accountable in all aspects of our lives.
