Time to get lucky


A fortunate 5 ventured out to throw around some iron.  Here’s what happened.


SSH x 20, Invisible jump ropes x 15, LBC’s x 20, DQ x 20, arm circles, small and big, x 15, Imperial walkers x 15

Mosey to bus loop for Lucky Horseshoe.

Start with 20 KB swings, walk around loop with KB, add 20 snatches, walk, add 20 helicopters, walk, add 20 leg lifts (with KB held straight up), walk, add 20 reach throughs, walk, take away swings, walk, take away snatches, walk, take away helicopters, walk, take away leg lifts, walk, finish with reach throughs.

Mosey to flag, numberama, namerama, YHC took us out.


YHC realized late last night that he had the Q, and after looking for inspiration at old BB, also realized something new was needed, so YHC stole an idea from the comment section when Spit had Lucky Horseshoe at MANNdate, instead of running the loop, carry the KB throughout.  Also tried a few new exercises–the helicopter was tough and received well, leg lift (some decided to do presses with the lift) and reach through, which Mudface described as “so basically a Merkin Row without the row.”  Close enough.  None of the PAX came close to finishing, and the workout even elicited a “Holy Smokes” from Helix, which is praise indeed.  Mumblechatter centered around the upcoming storm, and YHC hopes all PAX stay safe.

Thanks again for letting me lead!  The Carpenter, I’m catching up in Q’s, and one ahead in posts for this year!  Just saying…..but it’s you against you, so don’t worry.  🙂

As usual, I have No Idea what I’m doing.

  1. Nice call out, No Idea! You know how to fire up The Carpenter. I have felt sick off and on and I have missed all the workouts. Thank you for the encouragement!

  2. Quite a core workout challenge – a great variety! Helicopters tore up my back until I moved to the grass, though. Not sure how you did that on the pavement. Guess I should be grateful there were no partner drag exercises. Also, it was impressive to see you all holding the waiter-carry around the loop!
