Johns Creek isn’t known for its snowstorms so this morning was our equivalent to an Arctic Challenge. With no Q on the sheet, YHC decided to take the helm and ensure that there would be a Hooch beatdown despite the snowy conditions. While myself and Doughboy were HCs, sadly there were no others with similar determination. However, a courageous Meatball decided to beat the fartsack and roll the dice on the road conditions, much to his (and our) benefit.
Turns out the roads weren’t that bad so 3 PAX arrived safely and got to work…
We got the blood flowing with a short mosey to the theater followed by some SSH, Weedpickers, Windmills, and Imperial Walkers. Another mosey around the back of the bakery where the warm-up got more serious.
Three rounds of the following:
30 – second Balls to the Wall
20 Donkey Kicks
After the third round there was little doubt we were warm, so we moseyed back to the flag… and the coupons
In true Arctic Explorer style, YHC went with a routine inspired by our favorite explorer, Dora…
With 3 PAX and 2 coupons alternating based on the ‘timer’, the following were performed:
100 Squat Thrusters, 20 Merkins performed by ‘timer(s)’
200 Skull Crushers, 20 Squats performed by ‘timer(s)’
300 Coupon Curls, 20 LBCs performed by ‘timer(s)’
A quick parking lot loop and we returned to greet Captain Thor… 1-4 ratio of Sit-ups to American Hammers going from 1 Sit-up, 4 AmHam to 10 Sit-ups, 40 AmHam.
30 Monkey Humpers were thrown in to round out the time
Prayers for friends/relatives battling COVID and other issues. Prayers for the efforts of the Climb Kili challenge in February as this is an important fundraiser for the UboraTZ ministry.
It takes a lot to keep a beatdown down, more than what Mother Nature gave us this weekend. I’m thankful (and not surprised) I wasn’t alone out there. Great to lead this morning and great to warm up afterwards at Waffle House!
