15 Faithful gathered for a brisk workout at the Carillon
COP 10x Helicopters, 10x Don Quixote, 20x Imperial Walkers, 8x Sidewinder Merkins (at six inches move body from left to right then back up) 10x Bear Burpee OYO (start in bear crawl positing and spring forward into a merkin, explode back into bear).
Mosey to the Rusty Cage for: Orangutans–grab bar and move around cage as far as you can, alternating directions 2x. Then 3 sets alternating Jerkins (8x) and partner dips on the parallel bars.
Mosey to the top of love hill for a downhill Ark Loader with multiple sets of:
ABCD: Alligator crawls (straight legs in plank position), Bear Crawls, Crawl Bears, and Dog Crawls (Down Dog position with straight legs)
Crab walks with 90 degree turns at Q’s call.
We ended about 2/3 of the way down the hill and moseyed to the bottom
Partner Carry up the grassy hill. Alternate when tired. Balls to the wall at the top.
Mosey back to the FLAG.
COT YHC took us out with a prayer of Thanksgiving.
Great work by the Pax today. It’s great to see Lola and Ronnie becoming regulars. Several of the regulars were able to make it all of the way around the cage in the orangutan’s which was impressive!
YHC decided to try a number of new, experimental exercises today. The Bear Burpees were surprisingly tough as they require an explosive Merkin to get back into the bear position. The Alligator Crawls are a real calf-burner. The hope was to make it all of the way down the hill, but we ran out of time.
The lack of intense cardio work and the long, long crawl down the hill kept the Pax together and there was a lot of mumblechatter. I’m not sure who started the Chevy Chase movie quote string, but there were many references. Feel free to pipe in with clips, etc.
1 hour workout tomorrow at MM.
Clown car going to Mt. Trashmore this weekend. Talk to Hardywood if interested in going.
