Just A Walk In The Dark

  • When: 9/10/19
  • QIC: Alcatraz
  • The PAX: Sand Bag, Pony Boy, Dutch Boy, Barrister, Poutine, Disaster, Juice, Warwick, Hugo, Murdock, Brinkley, KleanUp, Buffalo Bill, Gordo, Glock, Dodger, Ambassador, #1, Tiny Dancer, Alcatraz


As a PAX of 20 gathered in the gloom, a solid number of headlamps accessorized many.  It was a good thing, because they were about to take a walk in the dark.  Many lights might get the attention of a texting driver who erroneously assumes it’s not smart to be on an unlit road at 0530.  Since YHC has never claimed to be the sharpest tool in the shed, one can at least make an attempt at safety!

Disclaimer was given and a mosey began out the Rabbit Hole to…

WARMARAMA:

At Shelley Ave, the PAX lined up along the curb for Warmarama – Native American Style!

  • SSH
  • IST
  • Cotton Picker

THE THANG:

At the rail, the following exercises were done.  Since @Powerball was not in attendance, YHC was responsible for the math as we progressed through the following exercises.  Starting at 1 rep for the first exercise that number increased for the others by the corresponding multiple.

  • Decline Merkin (1)
  • Incline Merkin (2)
  • Dip (3)
  • Air Press (4)

It was reported @TinyDancer was tired after a base rep count of 5, so a mosey began to the playground.  After partnering up along the curb, each team made their way to the pull up bars for some Partner Assist Horizontal Rows with a twist.  The one doing the rows had to traverse along the bars performing a row with every lateral movement.  This was done at the standard pull up bars as well as those green things on the other side of the playground.

The PAX performed LBCs until their team’s turn and then partners switch for another round.

A mosey began back to the darkness of Shelley and some more Native American style exercises towards Ridge Rd…

  • Ankle Touch Slow Squat
  • CDD on the Curb
  • Ankle Touch Slow Lunge
  • Rocky Balboa
  • Monkey Humper

Reverse direction for…

  • Ankle Touch Slow Squat
  • CDD on the Curb
  • Ankle Touch Slow Lunge

A Riot Run ensued back to the rail to bring down what went up.  Starting at a base rep of 5, the PAX reversed the order for…

  • Air Press (4)
  • Dip (3)
  • Incline Merkin (2)
  • Decline Merkin (1)

With time running short, there was small mutiny when YHC attempted to add more Decline Merkins after a base rep of 3.  Or it may have just been a Q fail due to poor communication.  Either way, time was almost up and a mosey began to…

MARY:

  • Pretzel Crunch x 15
  • Todd Beamer x 20

COT and BOM!

A DARK MOLESKIN:

  1. Good work today men!  One has to wonder if Tiny Dancer ever really gets tired.
  2. Thanks to those who wore a headlamp.  Accidents happen, but attempting to be as safe as possible is one of the primary responsibilities a leading a beatdown.
  3. Speaking of safety, YHC will retire the traversing partner horizontal rows.  It proved to be extremely difficult to catch oneself should someone lose their grip on the bars while someone else is holding their legs.  If you aren’t convinced, see @Barrister.
  4. Check Slack to sign up and help with the Miracle League Baseball games this Saturday.
  5. Mark Nov 2 on your calendar for a convergence/competition across MECA.  Highlands will put together a team with Respects and Clydesdales included.

Always an honor to lead the PAX!

    Alcatraz, good job this morning! I enjoyed the new Warmarama format. Nice change of pace so hats off on creativity! I hope Barrister is ok because that was a pretty good fall! Did Dutch Boy pull him down? Asking for a friend!

    • Alcatraz

      I talked to @DutchBoy this morning at church. Was he there to confess or just drop his 2.0 off at preschool. I wish I could say, but #ClergyPrivilege. However, @Barrister is a pro at personal injury litigation, so we will just let the courts decide. And for the record, @DutchBoy was not included in the disclaimer!

      • Dutch Boy

        Due to my partners skill at litigation, I’ll say nothing. However, a save while also holding the his legs was out of thr question! Great beatdown @alcatraz

  2. Made the backblast and didn’t even post.

    • But, since no PAX were listed…technically no one else did, either.

      • Alcatraz

        I’ll fix that and sorry for the double post below. Internet issues 🙁
