10 Pax today including Chop Block, who rolled in 20 minutes late. Better late than never I suppose.
I gave a somewhat sarcastic disclaimer and then made everyone do 5 fingertip merkins because Two Ferns gave me the finger last night in a Tweet. Not very nice!
We took a mosey around the 1/4 mile dirt track and did some side shuffles and toy solders before circling up.
- 10 Windmills
- 20 SSH
- 10 Merkins
- 15 Low Slow Squats
- 20 LBC’s
I then explained the routine for this morning, nothing fancy. 4 cones placed in the shape of a rectangle with an exercise written on each of them. Pick a start cone and make your way around the cones as many times as you can, with a few small wrinkles.
- Cone 1 – 5 Burpees
- Cone 2 – 10 Merkins
- Cone 3 – 15 Big Boy Situps
- Cone 4 – 20 Squats
This was meant to hit some of the core muscle groups and is a great youvsyou routine. The wrinkle was the ever changing method of travel between the cones. Once Chop Block joined us, we took another lap around the track to let him warm up a bit and then got back to it. That also gave us an even # of PAX so I threw in some partner work as well.
Transport methods included:
- Bear Crawl long side
- “Itchy Back Merkins” short side (plank position, down, roll over completely, push back up, down, roll over, etc., until we hit the next cone.
- Crawl Bear long side
- Crab Walk short side
- Partner Assisted Bear Crawl Long side (this is what Chop Block affectionately named the “T-BAG”)
- Partner Wheelbarrow long side
We finished up with a NUR around the track before banging out a set of flutters and then circled up for CoT. I think most of us made it around 8-10 times which really starts to add up. A good setup for some of the newer guys so they could pace themselves and it encouraged mumblechatter so it was a lot of fun this morning.
Announcements, Praises, Prayers
Yeti, Joe Davis run coming up. Homebrew is changing jobs so prayers for that along with all the sick and injured PAX to get HEALTHY! Also, some prayers for my sister-in-law who is in her mid-30’s and has to have all of her teeth pulled.
Thank you for the Q Homebrew!
Until next time,
