Where: The Hooch
The Pax: 2%, Swiss, Sneakers, El Matador, Saint 2o, Boomer, Sunshine, Jimbo, Feathers, The Dab, Scrooge
Off the heels of a humbling Army PT test on Monday, YHC decided to get a little creative.
“Scrooge You” seemed to be the common phrase intertwined with the mumble chatter this morning as YHC took 11 Pax on a painful Scroogicide mission. Despite the impending rain (and lightning) we circled up and took off. Here’s how it went down:
Mosey around the parking lot then:
- Squats (IC)
- Windmills (IC)
- Cotton pickers (IC)
- SSHs (IC)
We then mosey’d to the church parking lot for the main event – 4 rounds of Scroogicides. Basically they are suicides with increasing reps of various exercises performed at the starting line and each time you return to the starting line. The twist is on the return trip from each turning point in the suicide, a different cardio exercise is performed to return home. Sounds more complicated than it was, but here’s how it went:
Round 1: 5 burpees, regular sprint to first line, then run backwards back to starting line, do 10 burpees, sprint to next line out, run backwards to the starting line, 15 burpees, etc. – we stopped at 20 burpees and 4 lines. Recover, kinda…
Round 2: Squats, 10, 15, 20, 25 and bear crawl back to the starting line from the first two lines, and regular sprint from the last two. In the middle of round 2, the heavy rain and lightning began so YHC thought it best to mosey back after Round 2 and finish Round 3 and 4 near the theater.
Round 3: American Hammers, 10, 20, 30 and then broad jump back from the first two lines and regular sprint from the third. This really got our heart rates and the comments going.
Round 4: LBCs, 10, 20, 30 and sprint back like a regular suicide.
We finished it up with 3 rounds of Mary:
- Dolly (IC)
- American Hammers (IC)
- Reverse LBCs (IC)
Prayers for The Dab’s friend recovering from neck surgery and Sunshine’s son recovering from his surgery. Also, prayers for all of us as we struggle to become better husbands, fathers and men.
Always an honor to lead these men and enjoy getting stronger along side them.
