The Silent Assassin

20 people, err…make that 19.5…(Paris had a case of Montezuma’s Revenge and had to bow out after the warmup lap. Get well soon, brother!) came out for a humid morning of ladders and partner work.

The thang:
Warmup jog around parking lot. Shuffle right, shuffle left, etc.
Warmup:
SSH x20
Merkins x10
Windmill x10
LBC x20

Mosey to the FAR wall (thanks, sprinklers) for some partner ladders:
1 Peter Parker on wall — partner carry across field — 1 burpee — SWITCH — carry other man across field
2 Peter Parkers on wall — partner carry across field — 2 burpees — SWITCH — carry other man across field
3 Peter Parkers on wall — partner carry across field — 3 burpees — SWITCH — carry other man across field
4 Peter Parkers on wall — partner carry across field — 4 burpees — SWITCH — carry other man across field
5 Peter Parkers on wall — partner carry across field — 5 burpees — SWITCH — carry other man across field

Mosey down to the rock pile, grab a rock (some were pebbles, some boulders) and circle up.
10 curls — 10 air squats — 10 air presses, pass rock
8 curls — 8 air squats — 8 air presses, pass rock
6 curls — 6 air squats — 6 air presses, pass rock
4 curls — 4 air squats — 4 air presses, pass rock
2 curls — 2 air squats — 2 air presses

Return your rock and mosey back over to wall for more partner work:
5 Peter Parkers on wall — partner carry across field — 5 decline partner merkins — SWITCH — carry other man across field
4 Peter Parkers on wall — partner carry across field — 4 decline partner merkins — SWITCH — carry other man across field
3 Peter Parkers on wall — partner carry across field — 3 decline partner merkins — SWITCH — carry other man across field
2 Peter Parkers on wall — partner carry across field — 2 decline partner merkins — SWITCH — carry other man across field
1 Peter Parker on wall — partner carry across field — 1 decline partner merkin — SWITCH — carry other man across field

Mosey over to parking lot lines for “The Snake” (zig zag across parking space lines, going up 2 places, shuffle right, go back 2 spaces, shuffle right, etc. until all the way across parking lot).

Mosey back to home base for MARY:
LBC x15
The squirm x15
Low Dolly x15
Crunchy frog x15

The moleskin:
1. Tclaps to a strong first post by FNG Brad Stubbs, newly-named Turf Toe. Welcome, Turf Toe! See you back out soon.
2. The silent assassin reference is that a creature dive-bombed Tumbler while we were doing the Snake. It looked like an albino bat, no joke. Other theories include a drone. It was pretty funny how it singled you out, Tumbler!
3. Anyone else have trouble holding onto one another during partner carries? By the end Tabasco and I were slipping off one another. Although Clueless and Big Bird seemed to be enjoying themselves as they crossed the finish line!
4. Strong work today, men. Thanks for the laughs and for allowing me to lead.

    Nice lead bud, deceptively tough. Enjoyed partnering with @FlipPhone. Thanks for pushing me man

    Good workout @Sundial. Enjoyed partnering with @The Magnificent and @Parquet. With all the fireman carries/piggy backs, I can now save my money (again) with the doc. Who knew F3 could help us physically in so many ways.

    @The Magnificent – think I saw the red head you mentioned Friday running after our workout today. I tried to flag her down and mention your name but no luck. #creeper

    Welcome @TurfToe, look forward to seeing you at the next workout.

  3. Clueless

    Nice lead @Sundial! It was definitely a change of pace w/ the multiple partner carries added in. Maybe that dive bomber was looking for a carry partner… perched on @Tumbler’s shoulder.

    Btw – @BigBird isn’t as light as a feather as his name might suggest. Good partnering with you. Way to push through all the way. Fun stuff…

    Welcome out @TurfToe! Look forward to seeing you out regularly.

  4. The Magnificent

    Haha thanks for trying @BBQ! Great workout there @SunDial, very deceptive.
