Out of Shape, Out of Schedule & Out of Excuses. Modify, modify, modify

  • Workout Date - 05/14/2020
  • Q In Charge - RoadTrip
  • The PAX - Peak-A-Boo, Red Rider
  • AO - The Terminal

2, make that 3 PAX fought off the rackmonster to find themsleves in a dark parking lot to work out some corona sweats after B9’s feeler tweet to see who was the Q.  YHC volunteered to have a plan ready and B9 still hasnt been seen.  But then again, he’s probably stil bitter about a Mayo / RT Beatside track rendezvous.  

Anyway, it has been quite sometime since YHC had any kind of structured workout schedule, which is why I found myself amidst a hard fought battle with the rack monster.  But YHC finally arose with just enough time to get to Pitchfork.  Only problem was…I supposed to be at The Terminal.  So after a clean sweep of the parking lot for any other ruckers and sleepwalkers, I made my way to The Terminal only to find Peak-A-Boo and Red Rider discussing the pros and cons of going back home. 

Conditions: Slightly overcast with a 61 degree blanket of corona air.

Mission & Disclaimer: nailed it like ATM’s 1/2 Marathon…in other words, it didn’t happen.

Warm Up:  PeakA-Boo and Red Rider were nice and warm by the time I Church Lady’d into the parking lot, so we rolled right into this plan.

Thang: Next up is Beamer’s favorite…The Dragon Lair.  You could hear the air of dispair exhale from Peak-A-Boo’s lungs…just like a birthday balloon a day after the party.  Barely floating but forgotten in a corner behind a sofa.

Start in the center of the parking lot with 10 burpees.  Run around 1/2 the parking lot and stop for 10 Hand Release Merkins.  Run the other 1/2 of the parking lot and stop for 10 Monkey Humper Jump Squats.  Then run the Dragon’s Tail (to the stop sign) for 10 more burpees.  Urban has left the conversation.  Return in the reverse direction, stopping at each station along the way.  That gives us 20 reps of Burpees, HR Merkins and Monkey Jumper Squats.

Head over to the end of the sidewalk canopy for Post Malones.  Perform an exercise at every other post, increasing reps by 1 at each stop.  Run between each stop.  Just so happens that 10 was the last rep.

1- Mand Relase Merkins (55 reps)

2-Monkey Humper Jump Squats (55 reps)

3-Muscle Ups – (55 reps) Modified to a shorter wall to finish up reps 7, 8, 9, 10.

4-LBCs (466 reps)
This was supposed to be double the reps at each stop, 2, 4, 6, 8 etc.  Peak-A-Boo was getting a head start on his Kelly Ripa abs and translated it to double the reps from each stop, like 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64.  PAX went with it until the 64 reps starting burning like a Soccer Mom gut grenade.  So we finished it out by doing 70, 80, 90, 100 reps for the last 4 stops.  This was again modified to allow 1 BBSU to count as 10 LBCs.  Mix and match as you like, but must do a minimum of 20 LBC’s each time.

No time for the Burpee round and no time for Mary.
