On a Monday following the Ragnar, most PAX in the Fort/Lake Wylie seemed to find their Fartsacks more than their local AOs. Just 3 PAX total seemed it a wise idea to find themselves at Quagmire for an awkward and uncomfortable BC.
In “honor” of Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples Day, the plan was to perform a series of awkward and uncomfortable partner exercises but because there were just 3 of us, that weinke went right out the window!
Now it became a little more awkward for me as I had to resort to my backup plan on the fly.
The “group” took a short mosey to the back of Home Depot’s parking lot for a short warm-up. After a few windmills, Moroccan night clubs, and walkers of the Imperial and Hillbilly variety, we moseyed on over to the front of Target.
With the wildly popular red balls, we did 4 rounds of Route 66:
Merkins, Squats, LBCs, and CDDs stopping at 11 different stations, adding one rep at each step.
After the fourth round was completed it was another short run over to the stairs adjacent to the fountain where the PAX took on a little of the awkward partner work.
In a rotating partner fashion, one PAX started on the top balcony performing Merkins while the other two performed Stair Barrows then on partner stayed at the top and did Merkins while the other two ran down the stairs to perform Stair Barrows again; rotating until all PAX had performed both the Stair Barrows and Merkins at the top. After all PAX had performed the Merkins, the exercises changed to Deep Squat Rows using the railings-then calf raises and then Carolina Dry Docks. If you think this sounds awkward and confusing, you should have been there….terrible.
We finished at the fountain with two rounds of Dips and Step-ups: 25 reps each.
COT was a little more personal than usual as the three of us were able to speak a little more directly and with more detail about the things going on in our lives. Some following up on things that had been mentioned in COTs of past.
Thank you Jedi for the opportunity to lead.
