Odd man out


5 posted for a glorious RVA morning at the Punisher.  It went something like this:

Mosey to northeast corner for 10 merkins (Note: The PAX was told that merkins and burpees had to be chest to the deck for the entire workout.)  Line up at the soccer field for circuit fun:

  • 50% to other end, 10 merkins, backwards run back, flutters kicks
  • 75%, 20 2 count flutter kicks, backwards run back, toe touches
  • AYG, 10 burpees, backwards run back, LBCs
  • Partner carry down and back, 20 WWII sit-ups
  • Wheelbarrow down, power skip/jump (yeah, I know) back, plank fun
  • Repeato x3

Mosey to playground for 8 pull-ups and 10 Bulgarian squats per leg, repeato x3, Freddy till all done

Mosey to flag for American Hammers, Scissors, single leg APDs

NMM:  There was little mumble chatter throughout this little jaunt around LHE, and that’s always a good sign.  This was not the original workout YHC planned, but they rarely happen the exact way you intend.  Splinter rolled in and gave us an odd number, so the PAX needed to modify.  Splinter unknowingly saved everyone from something that YHC will save for another day.

Great work today!

Some items of note:

  • Splinter and Swirly took a spill during partner carries.  It looked like someone stepped on a spider with long legs and arms everywhere.
  • YHC learned that the fireman’s carry is not the swiss army knife of partner carries.  Doing more squats would likely help with that.
  • Two more spots open for the BRR
  • Exploratory committee formed for 9/24 Wintergreen Spartan Race, see Toga

    Good Q Toga – Those wheelbarrow’s were tough man..

  3. Glad I could help the PAX out today by showing up right on time. Swirly – sorry for the barrel roll. It’s been a while since I tried to do a fireman carry.

    Toga – I can’t wait to find out why I had to remember that stupid tree the whole workout.
