13 Pax posted to the gloom of Golden Strip to find out what wacky stuff YHC would come up with. The mumblechatter started strong but didn’t make it past the triple nickel.

Mosey to the track behind the school.  Run 2 laps, with mosey on the turns and jailbreak on the straights.  Each half lap stop for merkins and BBSUs (40/20, 30/15, 20/10, 10/5).  Plank after each set until the 6 finishes.

Mosey to the speedway and partner up.  Run around the speedway in opposite directions.  When you meet your partner, stop for pattycake merkins (10 –> 8 –> 6 –> 4 –> 2).  3 total laps.

On the curb, do 60 calf raises (20 with toes straight ahead, 20 with toes in, 20 with toes out).

Warm Up

10x Merkin (double count)

Workout

We mosied to the Travelers Rest Family Medicine parking lot and did a Bear Crawl 1-2-3.   This wasn’t my idea, I found it on https://f3nation.com/exercises/  so if you didn’t like it, don’t blame me!  The bear crawl across the parking lot turned out to be a lot more bear crawls than I thought.  I somehow managed to get a blister from my gloves, which were still wet from my last workout.

Then we mosied to the Travelers Rest United Methodist church parking lot and played “Catch me if you can” using 10x merkins as the exercise.

Then we moseyed to Travelers Rest Gazebo and did a wave of merkins.  (Just in case anyone still had strength in their arms after the bear crawls and merkins)

Then we moseyed back to the flag, but on the way stopped at the Whistle Stop cafe where we did balls-to-the-wall for a minute.  After this my arms were finally good and tired.

25x flutters in cadence.

14 Egyptologists descended upon the Pitchfork Pyramid Gardens prior to the tardy bell for some mid east Social Studies extra credit.   Other regional PAX hit the Golden Strip Sleezy for a Slow n’ Easy while Church Lady beat the alarm clock and came in slow and low like a Ford Tempo to partake in his own jumping jack challenge.

MISSION & DISCLAIMER – just like riding a bike

CONDITIONS – 48 degrees and unseasonable light and breezy, kind of LOB’s Ranger panties.

WARMUPS

  • SSH x 19 IC with speed reps for Church…next position….err exercise
  • Windmill x 22 IC

All this in remembrance of 1922…the year that gave us Bea Author and Betty White you horny bastards.  Grab your s*#t and mosey to the block pile for a coupon and not those 1/2 off blocks offered by Whisper.

That’s because in order to get to the top, you have to start at the bottom, but at least there are the melodies of some of the best One-Hit Wonders that had Rasheed and G-Love  ready to breakdance on an old refrigerator box…and they say he’s just a friend, cause baby you…you got what I need.  But enough of that, time to ascend the Pyramid of Pain which Pine Tar immediately recognized from a FiA tweet.

  1. 1st Tier – 30 reps of Hand Release Merkins, Curls, Dips, Overhead Presses, Dry Docks – 1 lap
  2. 2nd Tier – 35 reps of Crunches, American Hammers, Revers Crunches, V ups – 2 laps
  3. 3rd Tier – 40 reps of Squats, Straight Leg Dead Lift, Lunges (ea leg) – 3 laps
    Urban has left the conversation
  4. 4th Tier – 45 reps of Calf Raises, Monkey Humpers – 4 laps
  5. 5th Tier – Good news is there is only one round left, the bad news is it involves  50 reps of Burpees – 5 laps

Return the blocks and Return to the Flags before you turn Japanese. (soo racist)

Announcements

  • 25 MAY – W.A.R. Fund 5k
  • Ville to Ville 2020 (light snickers, not those kind of snickers #TeamDessert)
  • Cheese Steak reminded all PAX of the location of the Firehouse (not the one with the sandwiches #TeamDessert) in case he or The Commodore needs a ride there.
  • Pitchfork needs Qs – Sign up you mother fu…….
  • Cheese Steak also reminded the PAX (particularly Peek-A-Boo) to update their information in the F3 app so he can show up at your house in spandex and a swim cap and put you in the sleeper.  Night, night Peek-A-Boo.
  • Urban has not been seen since the P200, Pet Stain might be dead and all Cash Machines are out of order

PRAYERS / PRAISES

  • Whisper’s friend, Randy’s upcoming prostate biopsy

N.M.

  • It was observed that an RT Q always brings out The Commodore.  He has since been promoted to Rear Admiral of the RT Navy.
  • It was observed that an RT Q also freezes up an ATM despite being in the comfy confines of a cocoon of blanket burritos.
  • It was also observed that Whisper is still carrying around 1/2 off coupons in the Whisper Hutmobile…which probably has absolutely nothing to do with those squeaky wheels.
