PAX (9): Bo Knows, Cheneral, DREAMER, Fire Drill, Ironhead, Laces, Scar, Scratch-Off, Brownie
Below is the exact wording the QIC used:
“Welcome to the Gladiator. My name is Dreamer and I will be the Q this morning. Today’s workout will be accompanied by some music. The theme of the music is “these are songs I put on the playlist” and the workout theme is “these are some exercises”.
Any questions? Great – let’s begin.
Simple warm up in the parking lot. Nothing too fancy and brief.
Warm Up songs:
Stacey’s Mom, by Fountains of Wayne
Get Ready, 2 Unlimited
Side Straddle Hops
World’s Greatest Stretch
If I’m being vulnerable, I have a hard time spelling the word “stretch”. Gets me every time.
Moroccan Night Club
1 – I 100% have to google how to spell “moroccan”
2 – Is it “Night Club” or “Night Clubs”?
Lap around the parking lot
20 yard bear crawl, 20 yards of broad jumps to the end of the song
Today’s workout was a tried and true “do the exercise until the song changes”
Song = Harder Than You Think (by Public Enemy)
Exercise = 10 merkins, 10 LCBs, take a lap
Important Note = Is is “Merkin” OR “Mercan”?? Still don’t know.
Song = Sabotage (by Beastie Boys)
Exercise = 20 yard bear crawl, 20 yards of broad jumps, take a lap
Song = Dream On (by Aerosmith)
Exercise = 10 Burpees, take a lap. Rinse and repeat suckas
Song = I Still Believe (by Tim Cappello)
Exercise = 20 squats, Sprint the width of the parking lot, 20 alpha count mountain climbers, and keep repeating (insert evil laugh here muwahahah)
Important Note #1 = LOTS of discussion on the curb dips. QIC agreed, curb dips take a special level of skill
Important Note #2 = I like to think the band had a long discussion on “is it ‘for WHO the bell tolls’ OR ‘for WHOM the bell tolls'”
Song = Shoot to Thrill (by ACDC)
Exercise = 30 seconds of high knees, 30 side straddle hops, take a lap
Song = Shipping off to Boston (by Dropkick Murphys)
Exercise = 10 crunchy frogs, 10 American Hammers, 15 Burpees
Important Note = Yes, plenty of Departed references were had. Probably the correct amount.
No announcement or prayers. PAX was quiet this morning. I guess they were catching their breath.
What a morning. Thank you for pushing yourself and working hard. Grateful for each of you. To be honest, I typed out 4 different responses for this section but all weren’t funny enough so I’ll just keep it simple:
Thankful for each of you.
I pray the Lord blesses each of you.
Thank you for taking beat downs as seriously as you need to.
