Arrived at 6:53 to find Yogi warming up wondering if anyone was going to show. Yours truly was happy to see that by 0700 we had even numbers – everyone would have a partner…..
WarmUp: Moseyed around the parking lot to circle up. 20 SSH and 20 Kodiak count Bird Dogs ensuring reaching proper stretch form that would make The Mole cry. [Editor’s Note: this in cadence bird dog warm up was the first sign that things were getting weird – although it is a good stretch.] Then mosey to the football bleachers for the spice!
1st Segment: Mixing it Up
A: Partner up for Partner Rows 10 Rows each partner. One partner stands over the other and grasp hands to perform an effective row. Homeboy and LAWDOG formed an incessant bond of non stop chatter that kept going and appears to continue on. [Editor’s Note: the partner on the ground was the one performing the row. To get an effective hold on said partner, the Pax standing over had to be positioned standing over the torso of the partner on the ground. You can image were partner on the grounds head would go as he pulled himself up. I continued to tell Homeboy to look me in the eyes because the only other place to look just felt wrong} After the Rows transition to 20 Mike Tyson’s OYO. Rinse and repeat for 3 sets.
B: No partners for this portion, although I thought I caught a glimpse of H&L holding hands. [Editor’s note: after the inverted row to crotch move, you formed a special bond with your partner] Pistol Squats 10L/10R mixed with 20 Dips for 3 sets.
2nd Segment: Back and Forth
-Taking the football field starting at the 0 yard line with 20 BigBoySitUps run to the 20 yard line for 20 Merkins and run BACKWARDS back to the goal line for another 20 BBSUS.
-Run to the 40 for 20 each leg Single Leg DeadLifts and run backwards back to the goal line for 20 BBSUS.
-Run to the 60 for 30 each leg Reverse Lunges and run backwards to the goal line for another 20 BBSUS.
-Run to 80 for 80 SUMO position Karate Punches to each side Rubicon count. Run backwards to goal line for 20 BBSUS.
-Run to the 100 and back to the 0 goalie. [Editor’s Note: I have no idea what a 0 goalie is]
->alternating planks and Superman’s led by Cricket for 30secs each (Crickets extended 30second count) for the 6 to get in. Homeboy and LawDog isolated themselves to the side to let the rest of us get accurate counts in.
—RINSE AND REPEAT—
3rd Segment: Dirty Hundreds
Starting at the goal line run to the opposite goal line. At every 10 yards perform a sprawl where your chest touches the ground. Run back to the goal line and Al Gore it for the 6. [Editor’s Note: this was no joke. It slowed some of my mumble chatter]
—RINSE AND REPEAT—
Cool Down: Mosey back to the flag for a little round of fire starting with: [Editor’s Note: After reminding Homeboy we still had a few minutes in our beatdown, he can join FIA at 8am]
– LawDog’s J-Los
– Wham-O’s (not to be misunderstood by HomeBoy) Iron Cross – we missed you Legionaire
– Yogi’s favorite painful Gorrilla Humpers [Editor’s Note: He is ready to Q the way he called that cadence count]
– Cricket’s unforgettable ab blaster [Editor Note: Apparently unforgettable enough for Hombre to remember the exercise is called the Freddie Mercury]
– HomeBoy’s finisher Burpees
COT: thankful for each man who showed up this morning remembering…..
– the boys on the Ruck over night
– Bloodhound’s recovery so he can lead another 666
– Wham-O’s church project for families
– Brother’s who lost jobs/in need of work – Kilo
– Safety for all traveling
Thankful for all you all. Remember to always medicate with condiments. And some spice to your life!!!
