It’s not my fault if this backblast sucks, my eyes are still adjusting to the absolute darkness of the #tankyard.

When @Squeal contacted YHC to provide a little #weirdness with a guest Q at the Tank Yard, it was a no brainer.  @Bambi and YHC posted there on Tuesday to get a lay of the land, and 2 more weirdos from the ’81 made the trip for the Q today – TClaps to @Bambi, @Whisper, and @ShortBarrel for being my wingmen.

When preparing the Weinke, YHC wanted to bring some old favorites learned in my time in F3 + some newer exercises that are #pitchfork originals.  Based on the #mumblechatter and sometimes lack of, it was a solid workout.

7 of us circled up at 0530 and @Squeal made his apparently normal entrance at 0535.  Here is what went down:

Disclaimer and Warm up – SSH x 30 IC, HB x 25 IC.  Mosey around the baseball field and back to the basketball court.  Circle up for some of YHC’s favorite exercises.

COP – Monkey Humpers x 25 IC, Hips Don’t Lie Merkins x 25 IC, Gorilla Humpers x 20 IC, Smurf Jacks x 20 IC.  #mumblechatter about LEG DAY!  But YHC had a surprise waiting in the holler.

@Montross leads us on a scenic mosey down to the Holler.  Line up in plank position for my Ode to @Bambi – the Merkin Trail of Tears.  One at a time, pax crawl out of line and bear crawl to other end.  First pax leads us all in 1 merkin.  2nd pax in 2 merkins.  8 pax in all, so 36 merkins and a really long plank.

Circle back up and Burp and Merk to 10.  Burpee with 1 merkin, followed by a burpee with 2 merkins, 3…up to 10.  Some #mumblechatter about all the merkins….perfect, cause after the Burp and Merk…

Plank it up for the 2nd round of the Merkin Trail of Tears.  @Bambi dropped the biggest word of the day with an “Unprecedented” comment when YHC called for round 2.  #shoulderssmoked

Mosey back to the basketball court.  Circle up for another COP.  Monkey Humpers x 20 IC, Gorilla Humpers x 20 IC, Smurf Jacks x 15 IC.

Partner up and head to the playground for 5 minutes of AMRAP.  Pax 1 raccoon crawls on the curb around the playground while pax 2 does 25 LBCs and 25 squats.  Flapjack for 5 minutes.

Back to the basketball court for my 2nd homage to a buddy from #pitchfork.  This time, for my boy @ACA, we do 17s.  17 times back and forth the width of the basketball court.  This seemed to be right in the wheelhouse for the Tankyardigans with @Montross, @Sanchez, and @HomewardBound as rabbits.

Circle up for Mary.  Much rejoicing when YHC called for Mary.

6MOM – Dying cockroach x 25 IC, Tempo LBCs x 25 IC, Ab Stabs x 10 IC (#crowdpleaser), Back scratchers x 20 IC, Rosie x 25 IC.  DONE!

Annc – @Whisper’s first 5k.  Sign up to support him.  GHS

Prayers/praise – Tara, Greg Gibbons, Spicoli, Rusty, Van Eyver family.

@Whisper took us out in prayer.

Naked Man Moleskin:  Pleasure to lead at this AO.  Great work by all.  Awesome amenities with anything a Q would need for a solid #beatdown.  Great to be welcomed on both Tuesday and today.  Looking for a return favor at #pitchfork soon.

Always a pleasure men.  SYITG next time,
