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,
