in an unusual moment of candor and self awareness, YHC realized that I had been incredibly lax as of late in my Saturday AO attendance, and upon further reflection realized that it seemed as if our overall Saturday numbers had been dipping as well. So, YHC sent out an “all call”, advertising Saturdays workout as being a little less intense than a typical weekday posting, and geared to those who had been away from action, hurt, or just dealing with life’s demands. 3 fellow Pax heard the call, and converged on the “country club of AOs” for a little work. It went something like this.
Warm up: 20 SSH IC, 15 imperial Walkers IC (flawlessly executed), 15 windmills IC, 20 Peter Parkers OYO
Mosey down to the picnic shelter for a little intro of 25 bench presses, followed by 15 DC step-ups. After completion, move out front of the shelter to the track, where today’s work was explained. The work consisted of a group of excercises, followed by a mosey around the track upon completion. Once all Pax were back, the next group of excercises would be given. This kept the Pax all together, and allowed all to finish at roughly the same time. YHC also explained that since this was designed to be a recovery/re-entry workout, the exercise count would be for regular attenders. All newly returning Pax should shoot for 1/2 the called count number, or a number somewhere in between, depending on comfort. The work portion consisted of 10 hand release burpees, 20 merkins, 30 superman merkins, 40 lunges, 50 Freddy Mercurys, 60 plank jacks, 70 SSH, 80 mountain climbers, 90 plank shoulder touches and 100 flutters. Of course, this meant that we ran the track a total of 9 times, each time doing our best to ignore looking at or thinking about the incredibly gross thing in the middle of the sidewalk (seriously, whatever gross thing that you’re thinking of, double it),
Mosey to Memorial Methodists with a couple of regroup/core work stops along the way and team up for a dora with blocks. The dora was executed as 100 curls, 200 chest presses, 300 overhead flutters. Again, to keep the teams together, each successive group of work wasn’t called until both teams had finished the one they were on.
Dora complete, blocks up, mosey down Arlington with a stop at Cannon and Arlington for 10 double count hand slap merkins. Mosey down Cannon and stop at the park entrance for 20 OYO dips. Finally, running out of time, we head back to the picnic shelter for 20 of Perry’s favorite, Makhtar N’Diaye (I don’t know what they work either Blue), 20 heels to heaven in honor of iTunes, and 10 corkscrews each side for Cockroach. Times up. Finish with COT and prayers out.
Hope to see more of our brothers next Saturday and looking for a good turn-out this next week. As always, I hope my Q was up to the abilities of my brothers. Always a pleasure to lead!
