Somehow I missed my annual trip to the Grindstone last year. Been thinking about how I needed to get back, and a glance at the Q sheet a few weeks ago revealed an open slot for today. Grabbed it and started to brainstorm something fun to challenge the HIM of F3 Cumming. About a week ago, inspiration finally hit with a routine provided by GoRuck.
Slight chill at the AO this morning, where it looked like we would be about 5 strong before a couple PAX came in hot and Chipper joined from his pre-pre run. On a personal note, it was great to see Snake who I don't believe I had seen since before Covid.
Run somewhere and circle up with high knees. Snowman feared the circle burp, but we skipped it as burpees were already in the plan.
10x Imperial Walkers
25x Moroccan Nightclubs
Back to the flag to pick up our cinders. Walk them to the football field, grab a coupon if you missed the cinder note.
Part 1: Cinder Kalsu
100 thrusters for time. EMOM, complete 5 burpees. PAX were given suggestions for modification as this is a burner. At 14 minutes, Q called it on this routine.
Jog to midfield and back, then to opposite end and back.
Part 2: BLIMPS
Q thought he was being nice by swapping out the Burpees for Bonnie Blairs, but didn't modify the lunges...oops.
Begin by bear crawling 10 yards, then 2 each Bonnies-Lunges-Imperial Walkers-Mercans-Plank Jacks-Squats
Bear crawl 10 yards, then 4 each. Reach midfield with 10 reps of each exercise.
Go back down the ladder, but run between yard lines and sub Big Boi Situps for Bonnie Blairs. The situps were a great chance to see the stars, which are much more visible in Forsyth County than in Alpharetta.
Not much time left, grab your coupon and go back to the flag. A round of American Hammers, a round of Dying Cockroach. That's it.
