Linwood Holton Elementary

Nightcrawler and I met up for last week’s Punisher with heavy rains falling.  We took advantage of the roofed outdoor classroom completing all of the evening’s workout under shelter, including: “C”OP with mostly the usual then Attila Sequence – 20 Dips, 20 Step Ups (one leg), 20 Dips, 20 Step Ups (other leg), 20 Dips.  Eight minute squat Tabata followed by Derkins at each bolt location per small picnic table seat (12 rounds) and one round of Incline Merkins at the larger table (6 rounds). Completed several rounds of other exercises on and off of the picnic tables including Carolina…

Before the next one, here’s the last one – from the first Monday evening after the changing of the clocks with evening gloom re-emerging.  From a parking lot full of cars – primarily for parents attending parent/teacher conferences, we began the evening with some quick words and then a mosey to the grass. COP with mostly favorites – Invisible Jump Ropes, IWs, DQs, Russian Soldiers, Helicopters, and Arm Circles.  Move across the yard to the school wall for Triple Check – People’s Chair, Arm Plank, and mosey to Laburnum and back. Head around the corner of the school to the…

Two Punisher regulars posted for its most recent offering.  Arriving on foot (walking), YHC waited only a few minutes before Offshore arrived (running) at the AO.  We hit the front yard for a conversational COP with Imaginary Jump Ropes, IWs, DQs, Helicopters, Cherry Pickers, and Arm Circles. Mosey around the school to the outdoor classroom for dealer’s choice Lindsays.  Offshore Lindsay to start – Decline Merkins and WWII Sit Ups.  Chum Lindsay follows – Copperhead Squats and 2 Count Mountain Climbers.  Quick lunge walk around the pavilion with a Burpee at each support post. Begin dealer’s choice Elevens.  Offshore Eleven…

YHC left Charlottesville close to 5:00 PM not yet adorned in my go-to F3 gear.  Seeking to avoid a speeding ticket, but also seeking to make a 6:30 PM Punisher start time, we pushed the return trip to Richmond.  Good thing the road between C-ville and RVA was clear (as it usually is).  Good thing also the AO is only a few blocks from the house. Arrived with just a few minutes to spare just as Krü hit the parking lot.  Nightcrawler came in on two wheels.  We moved into the grass for the COP with a lineup of the…

A PAX of four posted for last week’s Punisher.  Scar, who recently relocated to RVA from the Raleigh, NC area, was on foot on the east end of Holton Elementary looking for evidence of F3 activity as YHC approached the AO.  We strolled back to the parking lot.  Krü arrived via vehicle moments later.  Offshore arrived, too, but on foot following a run from VCU. Startup COP under the trees and among the acorns in the front school yard with SSHs, IWs, DQs, Hillbillies, Cherry Pickers, and Arm Circles.  Short mosey to thicker, acorn-free grass for EMOM – 8 minute…

Credit to all for staying home two Mondays ago when tornadoes were dropping into Richmond.  YHC posted at Linwood Holton long enough to establish that nobody else would be posting and headed home for cover.  Last Monday, we assembled a PAX of three and did the following: COP in the front schoolyard with some of the usual.  Mosey to the bus loop for a double ladder involving Merkins and Squats.  One Merkin followed by a mosey down the bus lane to a point and then one Squat.  Back to the starting point for two, and so on until 21 of…

Three posted for last week’s Punisher.  Offshore arrived on the run, having completed another Monday AM bus in / PM jog back to LHES.  Krü arrived using conventional means. We gathered briefly in the lot and moseyed to the school yard for the initial COP with most of the usual.  For the next 45, we took turns selecting the method we’d use in moving from tree to tree (large and small) in the school yard (Bear Crawl, Crab Walk, Lunge Walk, Frog Jump, or whatever) and calling exercises at each tree (generally in the order of Chest, Legs, and Abs). …

A quick afternoon shower preceded the posting by 5 PAX at this week’s Punisher.  After a quick meet and greet in the parking lot, with some PAX members coming in hot, we moseyed to the east side of the hedges for The Thang:  Startup COP with SSHs, IWs, DQs, Russian Soldiers, Helicopters, and Arm Circles. Mosey to the outdoor classroom and started with the Attila Sequence using the picnic tables – 20 x Dips, 20 x Step Ups (one leg), 20 x Dips, 20 x Step Ups (other leg), and finish with 20 x Dips.  Begin 8 minute EMOM #1…

A pax of 3 eventually converged upon the fields of Holton to do some exercising where audience participation is always welcome.  Lab Rat was late due to a dead car battery, but made it just in time to pick up the Q from Chumbucket and give him the night off. Stuff: -COP included invisible jump ropes, side stradle hops, helicopters, Don Quixotes, merkins, LBC’s, and Hillbillies to test the commitment of audience members (they were commited). -Mosey to jungle gym for pullups and derkins.  3 sets of 7 and 10 reps, respectively. -Little 4 corners on the black top:  1)…
