With threats of temps in the mid forties and potential monsoon rains, YHC decided to take our Tuesday morning beatdown under cover but used some creativity to keep the heart rates pumping.
After seeing Bohemian Rhapsody last weekend Queen was on the mind so we had a playlist of Queen songs loaded to keep us pumping. The songs were released between 1975 and 1979 which happens to be the years YHC was in high school.
0520 rolls around and as I pull up to the AO the rain has stopped and an FNG is in the parking lot (Nacho can bring them in!) and Mayhem pulls in from the Rube.
Disclaimer and we did a quick loop around the parking lot back to the truck and the waiting girlfriends.

That’s enough. We go to the truck and get a GF each. For this morning we pair up and partner one does a count of an exercise while partner two does another exercise. When partner one finishes flapjack. Continue on until the song ends and go on to the next exercises. The exercises were chosen so that one would be more cardio intensive and the other would let you recover a little. That was the theory anyhow!

The “Oh My Abs” routine was picked up from the guys from NLB at Caney Creek. 30 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. We only had time for the following:
- Flutter kicks
- American hammer
- Leg lift
- Jane Fonda left
- Jane Fonda right
Count-o-rama and Name-o-rama. Welcome FNG Halo!
Fun fact: in the Queen song “Bicycle Race” is where we get “Freddie Mercuries” from and in the lyrics he sings “Jaws was never my scene and I don’t like Star Wars”. Jaws was released in 1975 and Star Wars in 1977. Bicycle Race was released in 1978.
