What does not kill you…

AO: The Paragon

When: 03/13/2018

QIC: Légionnaire

PAX (): Homeboy, PapaJohn, Spaceballs, Cuban, TitleMax, Cheetwood, Primo, Yogi, Wham-O, Cricket, RickyBoby, Smurfette, Palin, Good hands, Hightops, Crowbar, Garfield, Baywatch, Thrasher, Nomad, Fleetwood, Bromo.

Today the Pax was introduced by YHC to the cruel and unusual punishment of working out while listening to Kelly Clarkson and MO… as if the 32 F morning temperatures were not bad enough. But YHC was humbled to see 22 unsuspecting men posting with him in the gloom and trusting him with the first hour of their day.

Warm Up

SSH X 20, Cotton Picker X 20, Sun Gods (shoulder warmups OYO), Flutter Kicks X 30

The Thang

In the spirit of passing on the spirit and culture (or lack thereof) of the Kodiak to the young but growing Paragon PAX YHC performed an Encore Performance of the much talk about Westside Gravity Assist Workout also known as Indian run till you drop…

Named after a notorious Hurtlocker PAX member whom famously complain about the ill effects of gravity on his 31-year-old body while Rucking up-hill the workout simply incorporate evaluation of the terrain gradient to somewhat mitigate and ease the pain. (which YHC completely agrees with you is pointless…) Here goes…

Indian run until the starting pax member comes back to 1st position then stop the formation for the first set of exercise:

20 Merkins if going downhill or on flat terrain but only 10 if going up-hill.

Indian run again till point man comes back around once more…

20 Merkins, 20 Burpees  or 10 Merkins, 10 Burpees

Indian run again… (we ended up running two lines due to 22 strong PAX)

20 Merkins, 20 Burpees, 20 Cotton Pickers (Yes… I know, lame,  YHC made the mistake of asking for participation)  or 10 Merkins, 10 Burpees, 10 Cotton Pickers.

Indian run again… (see a pattern?)

20 Merkins, 20 Burpees, 20 Cotton Pickers, 20 Carolina Dry Docks or 10 Merkins, 10 Burpees, 10 Cotton Pickers, 20 Carolina Dry Docks.

You guessed it, Indian run again…

20 Merkins, 20 Burpees, 20 Cotton Pickers, 20 Carolina Dry Docks, 20 Squats or 10 Merkins, 10 Burpees, 10 Cotton Pickers, 20 Carolina Dry Docks, 10 Squats.

Sigh… yup mosey again!

Rinse & repeat till the 6:15 call to the flag for some Mary: 40 Flutter Kicks.

Charly Oscar Tango

Smurfette is launching his first 3rd F project check with him for details. Homeboy mentioned Babyface’s F3 Dads launch and baseball game outing.

Prayers were requested for Homeboy’s dad as he received some bad news from cancer test results, Spaceballs niece for her premature infant and  Cuban’s acquaintance that his suffering from PTSD and may be a danger to himself.
