Preamble:

Any time YHC sees an opportunity to Q at The Gladiator, he jumps at the chance. The AO does a great job of filling out the Q sheet, and openings were hard to find. Given the layer of sweat and turf nuggets on everyone after the beatdown, folks probably were wishing that sheet spot had remained open. Disclaimer was quick, as we had a veteran crew. So off we went…..

Warm-O-Rama:

10 each of weedpickers, willie mays hays, moroccan nightclubs, hillbillies, and ssh’s. Mosey to the turf field across the street to strains of Kashmir…..

The Thang:

  1. Prep for IPC – in reps of 1/2/4/8/16/32, pax started at the end line, performed the first exercise, then engaged in travel modes. When prescribed travel mode’s reps were completed, run to the opposite end line and continue. Pairing included: Hand release mercans/walking lunges, monkey humpers/alpha count bear crawls, and jump squats / inch bunnies. Hillbilly for the 6
  2. ┬áDescending BOMBS – starting at nearest corner to the entrance, pax conducted 5 burpees, 10 overhead claps, 15 mercans, 20 bonnie blairs, and 25 squats. Proceed via Karaoke to next corner, conduct exercises and drop squats, forward run to the next corner, drop bonnie blairs, karaoake across then drop mercans, bernie sanders to corner and drop claps

COT:

Reminder about IPC upcoming (will be at Gladiator on Tuesdays); Darth Visor CSAUP at 630 at Fowler Park on Saturday

Prayers for Scratch Off’s wife and new baby, Dinghy’s friend who is entering rehab, and Defcon2’s new job

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Was great to get some work in and lead at The Gladiator. Thank you all for the effort and the power of the mumblechatter – and the affirming feedback on the playlist!
