It was good to Q for you men this morning, although I almost smoked myself demonstrating the Side Straddle Stork Hop at the start, which is a near impossible exercise;) TYA is truly a beast! The PAX had lots of energy this morning, no doubt empowered by a strong turnout that included some familiar faces (good to see you Iron Curtain!) and an eager FNG. Welcome, Quickdraw!
YHC tried to get his creative juices flowing with some new exercises. I think the squerkins went well, although we could have definitely done more for more PAIN. The military merkins were a bit of a clown show at the start, but I think they have potential. We may have to try an entire workout of sparingly used obscure exercises to test our collective mettle.
Admittedly, YHC almost thought he bit off more than he could chew with the Merkin Ladder, but the PAX performed so well and was so eager for more that it was fitting to finish with merkins again in the Ring of Fire. Much mumblechatter could be heard, most in the form of verbal appreciation from the PAX for the gift of merkins. “Thank you sir, may I have another!” One can only wonder how excited Don Draper, er Fudd, would have been. Hopefully, he is giving those Greeks all they can handle. On a final note, JVille turned on the jets and sprinted to the COT. YHC and Toga gave chase to no avail. Deceptively fast and a strong runner, good to have him on the BRR team.
Workouts at SOT tomorrow, 45MOM on Thursday and Friday, Dogpile and Gridiron on Saturday.
The Rugged Maniac is this Saturday, May 2. Today is the last day to register, and the team is mostly filled. However, if you are feeling it, contact JVille immediately.
Until next time, AYE!
