Table Tumble


7 warriors woke in the dark and gathered in the gloom at MM. Here’s how it went down:

Field Trip day! Begin with .7 mile mosey west on Grove. First stop: a parking lot on the left near Lexington.

COP: Deadman Hang IC // Stretch to the Sky // Helicopters // DQs // Imperial Walkers // Copperhead Squats // Alabama Prom Dates // Crabcakes // LBCs // Merkins // SSH 21s

Wall to Wall: Partner up. P1 does Balls to the Wall on east wall, P2 runs to the other side of the parking lot and does 10 Donkey Kicks on west wall. P2 runs back and switch. 3 rounds.

Mosey west on Grove. 2nd stop: St Giles Church parking lot.

Table Madness: Grab a table and a partner for some partner table exercises.

Exercise 1: Wingnuts. Sitting on picnic table, feet under bench, lean back to approx. 15 degrees with back and neck straight, fists touching in front of chest so that elbows point parallel with shoulders, rotate waist so that each elbow touches the table top. 4-Count IC, x20.

Exercise 2: Coyote Uglys. Starting in a wheel barrow position with partner, P1 starts on the ground and steps up to picnic table ‘seat’ with his hands, completes 1 Merkin, steps up to top of the table top , 1 Merkin, steps back down to the ‘seat’, 1 Merkin, steps back down to the ground, 1 Merkin. That’s one rep. Each Partner does 5.

Exercise 3: Hail Marys. P1 elbow planks on ground, P2 places his legs on P1’s back and performs 20 dips with his hands on table bench. Each partner does 3 sets of 20.

Mosey to the back lot of the church for the final stop: basket ball goal.

Knockout! The Pax played a rousing game of knockout. While waiting in line, pax performs SSHs. When knocked out, waiting pax performs WW2s, then American Hammers, then LBCs. YHC and Swirly battled it out for the win, YHC inched by.

Mosey a mile back to the school.

Numberama, Namerama, YHC took us out.

NMS: The picnic table excercises were an experiment, and the report card is out on whether they were successful. Unfortunately we discovered that this particular set of picnic tables is pretty cheap, and we nearly broke several of them. Had to modify some exercises as a result. Knock out was a lot of fun and the Pax remarked how difficult it was to shoot well after all the merkins. Never have you seen a group of men shoot a basketball so badly.
