Eight men shook off the fartsack and fought through the humidity to help YHC with his first Anvil Q.
Mosey to area by flagpoles for COP: SSH, merkins, arm circles, LBC’s. Mosey to inner courtyard, where we would stay for the rest of the time. Pull out the cards, time for some fun. PAX took turns selecting cards, first set of exercises was ranger merkins, mountain climbers and alternating side squats, do 5, 10, 15, 20 LBC’s, then 10, 20, 30 and 40 LBC’s. Repeat this sequence with squat thrusts, oblique crunches, and backward lunges, then standing lunge, Helix squat and monkey humpers, wrapping up with merkins of the Chuck Norris, diamond and regular varieties.
YHC then drew 6 more cards, and PAX did 30 of each: Freddie Mercury’s, Smurf Jacks, calf raises, jump squats and backward run, then finishing up with holding low plank for 60 seconds. Mosey back to flag, numberama, namerama, YHC took us out.
Day 4 of Q week for YHC had me out of ideas and tired from staying up late for my 2.0’s swim meet (though Corned Beef and Marco Polo were there as well, and they crushed the workout). Days like this are why YHC bought the workout deck! It can be very cruel, as 3 types of merkins in a row was rough, as were monkey humpers after lunges and Helix squats. The PAX did a great job, and Trout showed he knows how to bring it and embrace the pain–great effort! Wrapping up the week at The Creek tomorrow, hope to see many of you out there!
As usual, I have No Idea what I’m doing.
