4 regulars and 1 FNG came out in the cold to work off the cookies and eggnog. Here’s how we rolled.
COP SSH 15, LBC’s 11, Arm circles 15, merkins 11, Imperial walkers 15, DQ 11
Start with 18 lawnmowers and 11 demon/skull crushers, then 17/12 and so on until you end up at 11 lawnmowers and 18 d/s crushers.
Flutter kick presses while “I Saw Her Standing There” by the Beatles played (about 3 minutes).
33 renegade rows, 2 count
Listen to “Gonna Fly Now” from Rocky while ‘punching’ with jab and uppercuts while holding KB.
5 each of halos, good mornings and boat/canoe’s.
Numberama, namerama, YHC took us out.
So, today is 12/26, here’s the history lesson and significance of numbers:
COP: every 2 exercises add up to 26
18 and 11 is for 1811, on 12/26/1811 a fire destroyed the Richmond Theater, killing 72 people, including the sitting governor, along with former senators and representatives.
On 12/26/1963, the Beatles released 2 songs in the US, including I Saw Her Standing There, which marked the beginning of Beatlemania in the US.
Harry S Truman died on 12/26/73 – he was the 33rd president of the US.
12/26 is recognized as Boxing Day in the UK and other parts of the world, and named so because in the 19th century it was the day servants and postmen were given a Christmas box as a thank you. Also, you know, Rocky, and it’s fun to exercise to that music.
5 reps of various exercises b/c there are 5 days days left in the year after today.
Welcome to Pinkie (formerly known as Chris Suleske), way to make it out after being EH’d by YHC and Mudface at Blue Cheese’s Christmas party. Solid effort-the workouts don’t get easier, but you get stronger!! Hope to see you again at The Creek this Friday.
Mudface was critical of YHC multiple times today, which isn’t unusual, perhaps Santa didn’t bring him what he wanted, but his efforts did generate a lot of great mumblechatter. YHC was just a tad unfocused, as the winkie was somehow left behind at the house, and relying on YHC’s porous memory is a bad bet. Still, a good workout this morning–the boxing exercises were awful, and if the ground wasn’t almost frozen it would have been severely damaged by the renegade rows. Thanks to YHC’s M for help with the historical facts, that’s how we spent the last few minutes of Christmas! Woo hoo!
As usual, I have No Idea what I’m doing.
