AO: The Widowmaker

When: 02/08/2020

QIC: White Claw

PAX (13): Miller Time, Special K, Pinky, Lil' Hurt, Ha-ha, Pumba, Dosido, Birdie, Electric Worm, Legos, Cookie, Devito


No pre-ruckers so Dosido joined Cookie, Miller Time, Devito, and White Claw for a not as cold as it seemed Twisted Surprise.


Circled up at the top of the parking lot for some SSH, Weed Pickers, and Windmills

The Thang:

Moseyed on back to the soccer field, partnered up, and did a routine called B.O.M.B.S.  (Special shoutout to Dosido as he provided some tunes while he brought the ruckus around the field.)

Partner 1 does exercise while Partner 2 runs to mid-field. Swap out and continue the exercise until each amount of reps are complete. The exercises and reps are: 50- Burpees / 100- Overhead Claps / 150- Merkins / 200- Big Boy Sit-ups / 250- Squats.

Next we traveled to the bottom of the AO namesake for Mucho Chesto. In between each exercise we would run up and down the Widowmaker.

20 reps of each: Merkins, Wide, Offset Left, Offset Right, Diamond, and Ranger

Headed back to the soccer field to finish off the BD with B.L.I.M.P.S. and Bearpees.

OYO we did 5 Burpees, 10 Lunges (walking alpha), 15 Imperial Walkers (alpha), 20 Merkins, 25 Plank Jacks, and 30 Squats.

This took us to mid-field.  We turned around for some Bearpees.

OYO 1 Burpee followed up by 4 count Bear Crawl forward.

Stayed on the field for COT

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Snow is a funny thing in Georgia.  When there is a possibility of it coming that’s all everyone talks about because it only happens once a year if that.  I’m not gonna lie I thought it would’ve been pretty cool for snow to start falling mid-beatdown as everyone pushed through to strengthen their bodies and minds.  There would be no snow this morning during the beatdown but a few hours later it started to fall and kept going strong for a good 3-4 hours.  I have two kids and they started going crazy when the snow started coming.  Watching little kids watching snow fall and the pure excitement it brings is unmatched.  We went outside and had a blast playing in it with some neighbors.  After a few hours passes everyone seems to grow tired of being cold and wet as the novelty fades.  Then again that’s what makes it so great about living in Georgia.  We get our one snow day, have some fun, and then we move on as spring warms everything up.  As I wind down this incoherent ramble about snow I just hope everyone was able to enjoy the snow day with family and friends as much as we did and happy that we got our one and only (hopefully) day this year.
