Staying dry with planks


9 Faithful and 1 FNG gathered in the sloppy parking lot for a WDog workout.
10x Helicopters, 10x Don Quixote, Arm Circles, 10x Merkins, 10X Freddie Mercuries.
Mosey to the Amphitheater for a very short Plank-o-Rama.
Mosey to the Rusty Cage for 10 minutes of Pullups/Merkins. Pax determined a pullup/merkin ratio and then proceeded to alternate between the two exercises with minimum rest for 10 minutes, with an emphasis on endurance, and not maxing out each set.
Mosey to Jacob’s bowl for a bit of leg work. 5 minutes of lunging down followed by skipping up. Plank for 10 count.
Mosey to Amphitheater stage for: Alabama Prom Dates 10x, followed by 1-legged Alabama prom dates 5x each leg, followed by 5x Diamond Merkins
Bunny Hop up the Amphitheater steps.
Mosey back to Start for another Plank-O-Rama (~3 min). Revolving planks 10x each arm. Reverse planks with leg kicks, Regular plank, Wilson’s Wife, Fudd’s Wife, Southern Gentleman, Yankee Aggressor, and Spiderman Planks (knee to opposite elbow).
COT—YHC took us out.
Welcome to FNG Taxi Cab, who was EH’d by Bleeder and is a friend of his and TYAs. His name comes from an eventful Bellarusian Taxi ride he had with Bleeder.

YHC peeked outside before heading out this AM, and thought it was fitting that he was to Q on another wild-weather day. Very heavy rain! But 10 minutes before the workout started, the storm cell stopped dumping rain, and it only sprinkled a little bit during the workout. The PAX did see some distant lightning during the workout. This didn’t stop TYA from questioning the Q’s judgment when we headed to the rusty cage.

Rather than the typical ab exercises, YHC opted for more planking today to keep us high and dry.

The leg work was a crowdpleaser today, and the Alabama Prom Dates on the stage of the amphitheater brought on some good joking as usual.

Hardywood’s bunny hops are a thing to behold. He’s at least 2x as fast as the rest of the PAX. Way to push it, brother!

BT gave us a report on the Spartan race. Sounds awful!

Good work today, gentlemen.

  1. Way to keep the pain high but the wetness low Sippy. Would love to say the 10 min of Pull up/ merkins flew by but that would not be true. Welcome Taxi Cab.

  2. THE Yankee Aggressor on

    Nice job Sippy. Just for the record, I wasn’t complaining about the work in the rusty cages. Damn the weather, we can work through anything.

    Welcome taxi cab. Great to have you out there and even better to relive some of those awesome times

  3. BT (Big Tennessee) on

    Welcome, Taxicab! And not so fast, Wilson. Time heals all wounds, and there’s already chatter to tackle it again. Good to be back in the mix!
