23 F3RVA men, 1 New Bern-NC F3 tourist and 1 FNG appeared on a glorious day for the gloom for what was YHCs VQ at 45MOMM. The group was large and lively this morning pre-workout with an FNG and visitor to meet and greet. YHC gave the 1 minute warning and started the timer when TYA’s GPS satellite watch gave us the correct time. Short mosey to the designated warm up area.
DQx10, HelicopterX10, Imperial WalkerX20 (tribute to May 4, Star Wars Day as my 2.0s reminded me), Crab CakeX20, Freddie MercuryX20 – 5 Burpees OYO **5 burpees to be done whenever the Q’s watch beeps (every 5 minutes)
Partner up for 2 rounds of 20 Wheelbarrow steps and 20 partner leg tosses. Mosey to the tennis courts for Fantastic 40s
At the end line 10 merkins, lunge across Court 1, 10 monkey humpers, Lunge, 10 Scorpion Dry Docks, Lunge, 10 WWI, Lunge to the end – Plankarama
Repeato going back with 20 of each and bunny hopping across each court. Al Gore at the end.
Repeato with 30 of each and bear crawl across each court – Plankarama
One more time with 40 of each and crabwalk across each court – Al Gore
Suicide on the Tennis Courts (for Circle K) then circle for Mary, 1-leg APD, Box Cutters, Dollies
Indigenous people run the long way to Cary and up Commonwealth, 2 lines to balance the PAX. Enough time for Flutter kicks and the last round of burpees.
Lab Rat took us out (mainly because he just continued to talk while we brought it to a close)
First, welcome to FNG Angus. YHC is generally not a fan of names that are actual names but when an FNG shows up with plaid shorts and hair flowing from under the hat, some things just fit. Glad Ingrown was able to join us, you are welcome back anytime. Isn’t F3 tourism great!
Great turnout for what I am sure many did not realize was my VQ at 45MOMM. I am not sure how I have been posting for almost 2 years and not Qed here. A couple LIFOs but Flipper was the one that YHC noticed coming in in full Apache mode helicoptering his way in to the COP. The chatter was high before we started and didn’t really stop no matter what I threw at the PAX, apparently YHC needs to go back to the drawing board and make it tougher next time. Although the groans that were heard when the methods for traversing the courts were announced gave YHC a smile. TYA wanted to go for 50 of each today but that would have involved a handstand walk across the courts. Lab Rat questioned early on whether we would get a mile in today, doubtful, and definitely not running. Bunny Hop lessons by EF Hutton and Gumbo next week, details to follow.
We know we are getting close to summer when Hardywood breaks out the Jerusalem Cruisers, somehow he is still just as fast in those as with regular shoes. Many complaints about the Qs choice for wheelbarrows and PLTs. Who doesn’t need a wheelbarrow that can handle some rough terrain? YHC didn’t know you were all so sensitive. All PAX are now interested in the remainder of the M9 Braves season after MARV’s riveting recap of Coach BT’s stress of ripping a stalemate from the jaws of victory. Good luck Bravos.
Keymaster posting for the 3rd time in his first week, did not leave a rep on the table. Way to push through. Great job fighting through today men. As discussed in the podcast, bear crawls and crab walks are not something any sane person does in a normal fern led workout. After the fact YHC realized that the beatdown was well tailored to Bleeder and his strength close to the ground. You’re welcome.
Viral has found a new way to EH by getting MARV to record a message to his neighbor, a VCU fan, that considers MARV a local celebrity. MARVs agent was not on hand to approve this but I think Corporate was able to authorize it. Whatever it takes to get those FNGs out. #giveitwaway
