PAX (9): Caffey, Dosido, Groundhog, Hollywood, Lefty, MillerTime, No-See-Um, Special K, The Real Woody
With a feeling of my recent stadiums of pain crushing me and those PAX who attended, I made a conscious decision to bring a BD that would be hard but FUN! I think everyone doubted me because they seemed quite skeptical as we started the BD.
Quick mosey over in front of NW and circled up for the warm up below:
Weed Picker: 10
Toy Soldier: 12
COVIDs on your own
After finishing our warm up, we moseyed over to the basketball court where we began Thang 1. Also, No-See-Um threw out a request for a cowboy hat and it made me think of a great playlist: country, today’s and yesterday’s hits. Yay – said no one by YHC and Woody!
Thang 1: Bear Crawl 1-2-3
Dora’s crazy wild life friend, who likes to cause a ruckus. Partner up, perform 100 HR Merkins, 200 LBCs 90 degrees, and 300 Squats as a team. While Partner 1 is doing the 1-2-3, Partner 2 Bear Crawls across the basketball court, and Crawl Bear back, then flip flop until all Merkins, LBCs, and Squats are complete.
There was a lot of PAX who grew even more skeptical about my promise of fun, and I felt a mutiny was potentially forthcoming. No worries, let’s carry on to the Northwestern football/soccer/lacrosse field.
Thang 2: 7 of Diamonds
Apparently the PAX need some geometry lessons, as many were struggling with the diamond.
For the first round, do 7 reps of an exercise (burpees) at each of the 4 corners with a mosey (or sprint) in between corners. Each round, increase by 7 reps with a different exercise each round, for a total of 7 rounds.
7 burpees at each corner for first round
14 Bonnie Blares
21 Wide Mercans
28 Big Boys
21 Diamond Mercans
14 Reverse Lunges
we only got through three rounds as YHC wanted to save time for the actual fun!
Thang 3: Ultimate Football
YHC wasn’t being sarcastic, as I actually had some fun planned.
Played like Ultimate Frisbee but with a football. Receiving team calls out exercise for team that gets scored on. We played for 20 minutes, and had a number of highlights. Hollywood going deep and catching an out of reach pass, Woody throwing and catching a number of bombs, No-See-Um showing off that QB arm, and a number of other defensive and offensive highlights.
we finished up with 3 minutes to go and hit up flutters, hammers, and dying cockroaches.
Prayers for Woody’s brother, Drew, the Burn’s wife, and our brother from Cherokee.
Today I had a lot of fun, and think the others did as well. Mixing it up and get stronger while still having fun is something I will plan to do more of in future Q’s.
