Gorilla Complex

AO: Hot Springs

When: 07/03/2020

QIC: White Claw

PAX (5): Pinkey, Focker, Devito, Miller Time


White Claw thought it would be a good idea to run to Hot Springs from Rubicon to have a pre-run before the pre-run.  Actual pre-run with Devito, Miller Time, and White Claw


Pinkey getting used to the Q sheet regularly being empty assumed he would be the Q.  He was informed shortly into the disclaimer that he could sit this one out and just be a participant this Friday.  YHC noticed an opening the night before and pounced on it.  Speaking of it’s about time Focker did his VQ being a few months in and also get onto to slack.  The official slack channel is setup so Hot Springs is ready to get rolling and start building up.

Hot Springs being known for cinder sessions so this Friday would be no different.  PAX picked up coupons and Cusacked to the end of the parking lot.  Did some SSH, Weedpickers, Windmills, Imperial Walkers, and Hillbillies.

The Thang:

After WOR we partnered up for some Flora 1-2-3.  Partners combined for 100 Merkins, 200 LBCs, and 300 Goblet Squats.  Partner A would do 10 push ups while Partner B would plank both with feet on coupon at all times.  Flapjack and proceed to 100 alternating every 10 reps.  Same thing with the LBCs, Partner A would do 20 LBCs w/ coupon while Partner B held feet 6″ off the ground w/coupon straight up above chest, alternating to 200.  Goblet Squats were 25 reps w/ coupon by Partner A while Partner B held low Goblet Squat position w/ coupon, alternating to 300.

Next we moved onto the main course called the Gorilla Complex.  OYO PAX w/ coupon would do 8 Curls, 8 High Pulls, 8 Shoulder Presses, 8 Skull Crushers, 8 Merkins, and then run to the stop sign and back.  Rinse and repeat 8 times.

With a little time left we did All About the Benjamin’s.  100 reps of exercises and 100 reps of lunges.  First 25 curls, 25 lunges away from coupon, 25 squats, then 25 lunges back to coupon.  Next 25 presses, 25 lunges away from coupon, 25 merkins, 25 lunges back to coupon.

Cusacked it back to the “flag” (need to get a Hot Springs flag) for a few Man Makers until time is called.

Post run back to Rubicon was determined to not be a good idea.  Will be the first and only time.


Prayers for Devito’s M as she continues to heel

Prayers for White Claw’s mother in law

Happy 4th Weekend!  Everyone be safe!
