A PAX 5 strong ignored sub-freezing temperatures to post for this morning’s GridIron workout.  Approaching the shortest day of the year, light was dim immediately prior to our 7 AM start.  We planted the ShovelFlag and went at it like so:

Startup COP on the main football field with 5 Burpees, 25 x SSHs, 20 x Imaginary Jumpropes, 20 x Imperial Walkers, 20 x Hillbillies, 20 x Don Quixotes, and 15 x Arm Circles (big and small, forward and reverse).

Mosey to the sand volleyball court.  Bear Crawl down one side, Zombie Walk the end line, Crab Walk the opposite side, and Side Skip back to the start.  Rinse and repeat.

Jog to the less-fancy football field for 4 corners including 15 x Plank Jacks, 20 x Carolina Dry Docks, 25 x Alabama Prom Dates, and 30 x Flutter Kicks (two count).  Repeat, adding 5 to each exercise.  Repeat again, adding 5 again.

Head around back to the baseball field outfield.  Starting at one end of the outfield fence, head out two posts and complete 10 Merkins, go two more posts and complete 10 Squats, move two more and complete 25 LBCs.  Repeat cycle until we reach the opposite end of the outfield fence.  Turn around and complete a similar cycle, but with 10 Wide Grip Merkins, 10 Curtsy Lunges (single count), and 20 Box Cutters.

Stroll to Pullup Bars for 5 Pullups and head to bleachers for 10 Hyperextensions.  Return to parking lot for 10 Hyperextensions at picnic table.  COT with Earthworm taking us out.

Moleskin –  Johnsonville doesn’t disappoint with his aerial Hillbillies.  Most PAX hate Crab Walks.  Repeated Box Cutters result in groans.  YHC planned more rounds of Pullups, but we ran out of time.  Coffeeteria at Einstein Brothers was good.  YHC heard Attila had planned to Q, but the Q signup sheet had been blank as of a couple of days ago – sorry Attila – bring the pain next week!

Announcements – Third F breakfast event on Thursday mornings – Rise and Shine Diner near Atlee.  Hump Day Happy Hour this week (Second F) – at Triple Crossing Brewery on Foushee Street in Downtown Richmond.
