The Orange Bowl Classic
11 men, including a visiting Russian, came out to celebrate a once in a generation happening with the Q. It was foggy and temperate for a ramping good time.
Mosey from OCT to the new deck and head up open air stairwell to the top of the 4th level for
- SSH x 20
- Hillbillies x 15
- Loose change x 10
- Arm circles and Phelps
Get straight into
Partner up. This was a competition workout literally designed after the Orange Bowl. One partner would run to the stairwell and head all the way down and grab an Orange at the bottom of the stairwell and then run up the ramps to meet their partner, where they would deposit their Orange in a bowl, each will do 5 burpees and release the other partner to get their Orange, and rinse and repeato.
While one partner retrieved the Orange, the other partner did the following exercises:
- Merkins x 20
- v-ups x 20
- squats x 20
- CAROLINA Dry docks x 20
- LBC x 20
- 2 point suicide down a ramp
Repeato until 0720 and call it. Cool down jog down the ramp using an Orange as the pacer, dump oranges at entrance to new deck and continue on to…
Broga and that’s it.
Prayers for the new year, new challenges and new victories, along with our country and our leaders.
Had to represent with today being the first time in 70 years the Heels are in a major bowl, even if they get waxed, it’s a big deal to the QIC who has sat through years upon years of disappointment.
Today was meant to be with the exact number of Pax needed for the preparation done. Fortunately nobody opted out of the Beatdown, and there was a perfect number of Pax to beatdown, as YHC had 6 bowls and 36 oranges. YHC got enough bowls, but not nearly enough oranges. On the fly, an audible was called that once the bowl had six oranges in it, the running pax would run the oranges back down to the bottom in the bowl. A genius Q often contains genius audibles and this one was no different.
Great to see KGB out this morning, hopefully 2021 brings more visits from our long lost Russian ally. Everyone pounded out a tough beatdown. Nobody wanted to take 35 oranges, so the Q was forced to throw them in the trash. The pacer Orange ended up at the bottom of the deck, and it’s things like that which make YHC happy to lead such a great group of men. Sorry Cabarrus County.
Coffee was great as normal, with Hops easily relieving himself of extra bottles of Buffalo Trace. Let’s make it a hell of a 2021 boys.
