15 friends, romans, countrymen lent their ears, along with the rest of their bodies, to the soggy fields of NoToll on the Ides of March. It was 51 degrees and cloudy but the rain held off. The PAX still got plenty messy.
COP: 15 SSH, 15 Merkins, 15 Flutterkicks, 15 Hillbillys.
Mosey to field for 44 BC in honor of the year Caesar was murdered, aka Regicide. 44 Burpees in a Corner, run to each corner and do 11 burpees to total to 44.
Move to other field for more 4 corners – 44 of exercise at each corner: LBCs, Mtn Climbers, Merkins, Jumpsquats.
Mosey to pavilion for sets of 23, 23 being number of times Caesar was stabbed. 1st round Boxjumps, 2nd Derkins, 3rd 23 step ups.
Mosey to field 1 for Shakespeare sets, 1599 being the year experts believe the Bard wrote the play Julius Caesar. 3 sets to total 15 and 99. 5 burpees, 33 Tuck Jumps, run field & back.
Mosey to center of field for Ring Of Fire, then to basketball courts to finish with some Mary – 44 Freddy Mercurys, 23 APDs, 10 leg lifts each leg, for Wilson who was a no show for no toll.
Finish up with COT.
NM: YHC loves a good theme beatdown. The only thing missing from the RVA beatdowns is a surprising lack of historical facts and trivia. YHC hoped this Ides of March idea solved some of this problem. There was zero chatter during the 44 Burpees to start and through most of the beatdown. TCLAPS to Jville for going out of his way to get muddy. There was some hesitation on hitting the ground from some of the PAX but all were warned last night of the rain on Twitter thanks to Wilson, who then proceeded to Fartsack – again!
YHC noticed several of the PAX were working on their jumpshot form during the squats. That should come in handy for 45Mom with Splinter this Thursday.
Great work Gumbo, one week in you already look stronger. Nice to have BT back stateside as well.
Announcements: HDHH and Davile kickoff tomorrow night, RSVP to Lab Rat if you are going. Talk to Jville about a new AO at Godwin on Thursdays if interested.
Nice work today men – remember all power is fleeting, so keep posting to stay strong,
