27 Pax gathered for a pre-daylight savings beatdown. The workout went something like this:
Mosey a couple of laps around the circle and gather for the COP.
10x Helicopters, 10x Imperial Walkers, Arm Circles forward and backward, 12x Merkins, 20x SSH, 10x Twisting jump-lunges.
Animal radii. Bear Craw to center 5x merkins, Crawl bear back. Then Crippled bear each leg.
Mosey to the amphitheater for the Cupid Shuffle Plank-o-Rama. Down, down = 2 merkin. Right and left. Walk it by yourself = switch from incline to decline. Kick = lift legs alternately
Mosey to the rusty cage for Orangutans and then Partner Pullups1à5 and Chinups 5à1.
Mosey to the bridge near the pump house for a Pipe Loop Triple Check. Plank, reverse lunges up the paved hill, and run the pipe loop.
Mosey to the hill near the Maymont trail. Sprint up hill and Balls to the wall on the house at the top while you wait for the six
Mosey back to the flag for a quick 2 min of Mary, flutter kicks and cross leg lifts.
COT—YHC took us out.
Thanks to Rosie for switching with me to let me Q today rather than last week. I’d been planning this one for a while and needed some morning light to pull it off.
YHC always likes to try an experimental exercise each time he Q’s. The twisting jump-lunges were good in theory, but were a major FAIL. The Pax was flopping all over the place and we had to abort before we reached 10. It was good for a quick laugh, however.
YHC was impressed at several moments during the workout today. Garbage Plate and Hitchhiker on the uphill sprint, Helix and Bodos on Orangutan, and Hardywood on the pullups, going for the 1-handed variant at the end. Way to push it guys.
At the very end of the workout, YHC heard some guys shouting “water.” Aisle 5 was a bit woosy after the uphill sprint and balls to the wall, and needed a little respite so he wouldn’t merlot. Aisle 5, it was great to have you back at Dogpile, and I hope you are okay.
Welcome back? to FNG Rickroll, invited by Loose Goose. For those not so internet savvy “Rickrolling is a bait-and-switch prank that involves posting a hyperlink that is supposedly relevant to the topic at hand in an online discussion, but re-directs the viewer to the music video of “Never Gonna Give You Up,” or what I did if you happened to click on the link above.” I didn’t get all of the backstory here, so someone please fill it in in the comments.
