8 Men made their way downtown to post at #Mainthang. Conditions we’re surprisingly good (34* and most importantly – not raining), although you couldn’t tell by all the cars in ditches. #southerndrivers

The Thang:

Warmup
SSH x20
Imperial squalkers x10 (homage to @Electric City who came up with this exercise – it’s an IW with a squat)

Mosey to the parking deck behind the Poinsett Hotel

Escalator (using the stairwell)
Level 1 – 10 squat jumps
Level 2 – 10 squat jumps, 20 glute bridges (w/ leg raise)
Level 3 – 10 squat jumps, 20 glute bridges (w/ leg raise), 30 russian twists
Level 4 – 10 squat jumps, 20 glute bridges (w/ leg raise), 30 russian twists, 40 lunges
Level 5 – 10 squat jumps, 20 glute bridges (w/ leg raise), 30 russian twists, 40 lunges, 50 freddy mercury’s

Once at the top – 11’s
X&O’s, bear crawl 30 feet derkins

Escalator down (using the ramps)

Level 5 – 50 freddy mercury’s, 40 lunges, 30 russian twists, 20 glute bridges (w/ leg raise), 10 squat jumps
Level 4 – 40 lunges, 30 russian twists, 20 glute bridges (w/ leg raise), 10 squat jumps
Level 3 – 30 russian twists, 20 glute bridges (w/ leg raise), 10 squat jumps
Level 2 – 20 glute bridges (w/ leg raise), 10 squat jumps
Level 1 – 10 squat jumps

Time for one last set – evens and odds
P1 supine pullups (10, 8, 6……2)
P2 merkins (9, 7, 5……..1)
flapjack with both partners doing each exercise (pullups or derkins EVEN and merkins ODD)
A bit of confusion on this one as the rails didn’t lend themselves to supine pullups. Derkins we’re offered as an alternative

Fast mosey back to the PC

  1. Think you might mean ISW: From the Exicon – Imperial Squat Walker: Cruel cousin of the Imperial Walker. This 4-count exercise starts with hands clasp on head. Count 1 = a squat. Count 2 = stand up and bring one knee up to the opposite elbow. Count 3 = a squat. Count 4 = stand up, other knee to other elbow. Q should be mindful to count at a pace that allows/encourages a nice, deep squat. Rushing the count produces girly squats. (Thanks Cheetah in NoCo.)
