PAX: Squirrel, Neo, Cold Call, Froyo, Flying Tomato, Colt, Rip, Dos Equis, Hammerhead, Chitwood, McFly, Aruba, Huckleberry
weather conditions: 42 and cloudy
The mild conditions in the gloom gave were perfect conditions for a nasty beat down. Admittedly YHC declines participation in this year’s merkin/LBC/American Hammer challenge, but was more than happy to help his brothers get their totals in today.
warm up lap lead to the hockey rink, QIC had to sprint to the front and overtake Dos and Rip as to direct the crowd
lap followed by:
20 x ssh in cadence
15 x good mornings
15 x imperial walkers
15 x arm circles
30 x American Hammers 4 count
At this point, Hammerhead says “don’t forget LBC’s” as he wants to be sure to hit his daily goal.
-oh don’t worry Hammer, I’ve got some LBC’s coming.
At this point the Pax were led to the baseline at one end of the rink and were given the mission: 21’s with Merkins on one end and LBC’s at the other. The question was posed to the Q: “don’t you mean 11’s?” Answer: “nope, let’s get to it!!”
After the PAX trudged through the 21’s they were lead to the wall for a few other activities:
step ups 15 each leg oyo
LBD’s x 15 in cadence
incline Merkins x 10 in cadence
squats x 20 in cadence
step up w/ high knees
Next we moseyed over to find some nice soft coccyx-saving grass for a little Mary.
Again, Hammerhead requests the American Hammer to finish out his daily challenge, so we oblige and knock out:
American Hammer x 20 in cadence
low slow flutter x 15 IC
rosalitas x 15 IC
Dolly x 15 IC
Homer to Marge:
regulare x 10 IC
left leg up x 10 IC
right leg up x 10 IC
and then we finished up with a little Superman.
Great job this morning Men. If we had Waldorf this morning we might have heard his favorite four letter phrase that finishes the flagrant alliteration here.
T claps to Cold Call for coming back for his second helping of beat down this morning. Keep coming back brother, it is a fraternity of great men whose worth is greater than gold.
Thanks for the awesome prayer from Chitwood, as we keep Mrs. Froyo and little Frosty in our prayers for safe travels and also Tomato’s daughter as she continues to confront her demons and turn to the Lord.
As always Men, it was an honor and a pleasure to be with you in the Gloom.
