With and Without
PAX (8): Milli Vanilli, Walkie Talkie, False Start, Dr. Rico, Funyon, Cox, NRA, Zohan
I was planning to come to the Windjammer anyway, so when Lumbergh posted he needs a Q replacement I grabbed the Q just yesterday. Didn’t want to reuse a beatdown, so tried to come up with an interesting variation.
3 for the Pre-Ruck.
Disclaimer. Was fiddling with the music. The PAX suggested to keep it quiet if going outside of the parking lot area so left it aside for a moment.
Mosey to the dam to get a nice morning view of the lake. 10 of each IC – Weed Pickers, Hill Billies, Moroccan Night Clubs, Mountain Climbers, Peter Parkers and Merkins.
Grabbed the phone and speakers to have some music. A predefined playlist I found on Amazon proved itself well and provided a good background.
We moseyed to the coupon pile and partnered up. One coupon for each pair.
For each given exercise, PAX would alternate run/exercise and also with/without the coupon.
- Partner A performs the exercises with the coupon, while Partner B runs without.
- Partner A runs with the coupon, while Partner B exercises without.
- Partner A performs the exercises without the coupon, while Partner B runs with.
- Partner A runs without the coupon, while Partner B exercises with.
The first set had 3 exercises – BBSU, Burpees and Bobby Hurleys. The latter, when done with coupons, resembles a Sumo Squat (touch the ground) and Thrusters combined. Not sure if that was a great choice to do following Burpees/Blockees but too late.
YHC asked to plank for the 6, but the gazelles chose to do some Mary and kudos for that!
The second set had Toy Soldiers, American Hammers and Lunges. We hardly got to do the lunges and YHC had to call recover to return the coupons and go back to the flag.
No time for Mary or for the 3rd set I chose as backup.
Prayers for healing, prayers for the families and friends of those who died in the disaster in Florida and safe travels for the upcoming weekend.
Always an honor to lead! Thank you for the opportunity!
