5 for Stumpies…


5 PAX regulars arrived at Batteau with Sippy Cup running his way to COP at 0530, and yes, Hot Potato Q for this Monday. Swirly took lead and over to tennis courts for COP and it went something like this–SSH, Don Quixotes, Helicopters, Imperial Walkers, Planks, Merkins, LBC’s, and Flutter Kicks.

Swirly kept Q and over to the playground we went: x 5 pullups, x 5 dips for 5 sets. Mosey to picnic table-x 10 Incline Merkins, x 10 step ups for 5 sets. Q handed to Bleeder.

Bleeder leads us back down the steps, that were lined with trees, to concrete bottom. Bleeder instructed-up the steps to a stump, decline merkin x 5, back down steps to bottom x 10 squats. Back up steps to stump x 10 decline merkins…repeat with increments of 5 for merkins till 20 done. Merkins switched for poll smokers due to high of some stumps. Decline merkin with stump=Stumpies. Nice new workout Bleeder. Bleeder handed Q to Posh.

Posh lead us halfway down the road to the lake. Stop and bear crawl back to the steps. Lots of bear crawls. Q handed to Flatline.

Up the steps to the circle at The Pump House. Indian Runs with the six performing x 5 merkins and 2 loop runs around the park. With 5 minutes left, Mary called out. X 30 American Hammers, x 30 Freddie Mercuries, x 30 LBC’s, and 30 second count down of Iron Cross (head up, arms up, legs 6 inches). Number-ama, Name-r-ama, Announcements: Prayers for Marv’s Mom, Cash For Stash (see Vinny or Gumbo).

YHC took us out.

NMS: Silent but efficient group this morning. Swirly called out YHC a few weeks ago heading to work so Batteau was a must this morning. It is half way to VCUHS. Way to start the week off right boys. Get it all out. Only those who post understand.

Loud and Proud,
