It was a glorious morning and the Q was completely in awe of the 10 other PAX that joined him for a beautiful beatdown in the gloom! We have Gunny on the mend so we missed him. Once Java arrived we all new we would be striving for 2nd best or at least not trying to get lapped (but all we all got lapped!). QIC had an idea for a beatdown of 100’s. That was going to be the backblast name until several folks started hollering in Spanish and moaning like someone who had too much to drink after Cinco De Mayo! Hence the name Cinco De 18th.
PAX- Grandmaster, The Burgh, Squid, The Big Show, Risky Business, Big Country, Cupid, Heisenberg, Java, Schniztel and QIC was Sir Topham
Warmorama: 20 SSH, 10 BSN, 20 Plank Jacks, 10 Windmills, 20 Seal Jacks, 10 IST’s, 20 Smurf Jacks, 10 Hillbillies, 20 SSH for a total of 100 jacks of some sort. Everyone love the extended warm up.
The Thang: Mosey to aka Thunderdome or aka Kannon Raceway. It was like a race way today with short pit stops. We did a total of 100 Merkins, 100 Squats and 100 LBC but split it up like this.
40 Merkins Run a lap, 40 Squats Run a lap, 40 LBC run a lap. Next Round 30 of each with a lap, then 20 and down to 10. We got just over 2 miles in running.
Finish up we cirlced up and did some planks and ab work all IC. This is where the moaning really began! 20 Down/ups? (whatever they are called). Hand plank down to elbow plank back up to hand plank. 20 hello dollys, 20 plank rotations, 20 freddy mercs, 20 shoulder taps, 20 W’s. Should have stopped at 5 excercies for 100 but we had a bonus round with the W’s.
Mosey back to Mary for some 4 minutes of stretching.
Moleskin: Great group of guys today showing strong at 11!! Nice work! Java smoked us, The Big Show pushed to the end, Big Country got froggy a few times on the laps, Squid was moaning like a senorita in heat, Schnitzel is always so quite, Cupid is a lover of all things so he never complains and our workouts compared to his madness is a cake walk, The Burgh and Risky were showing out and running strong and Grandmaster and Heisenberg were steady Eddies and doing putting in strong work!
It was an honor to lead such an awesome group of men today! Solid work!
