Swamp nether avoidance


Four regulars and an FNG posted for yesterday’s Punisher. Heavy rain at the start of the workout, but matters cleared up long enough for 45 minutes of action.

Startup of warmup with E.F. Hutton and YHC with additional PAX members arriving via clown car a few minutes after start. COP with 25 x Side Straddle Hops, 15 x Imperial Walkers, 20 x Helicopters, 15 x Don Quixotes, 15 x Hillbillies, 15 x Russian Solders, and 25 x Arm Circles (small only, forward and reverse).

Mosey around the school to the outdoor classroom for a Jack Webb-style sequence with Decline Merkins and Dips. Began with 1 Decline Merkin and 4 Dips and, adding 1 more Merkin each round maintaining the same ratio of one to another , worked our way to 10 Decline Merkins and 40 Dips.

Continue the mosey to the playground for a second Jack Webb-style sequence with Jerkins and Unweighted Overhead Presses. Began with 1/4 and ended with 10/40.

Relocate to the nearby blacktop for Plank medley with a little more jogging. Line up, with social distance, at the edge of the blacktop in Straight Arm Plank. First guy runs to the map of the US of A painted on the black top, puts a foot on a state beginning with “A”, calls out its name, and runs back to the group. Where no state starts with the letter, find one that has the letter in the name, or a city with the name, or whatever. Worked our way through the alphabet and through Plank variations – Elbow, alternating raised arms, and Reverse, to name a few.

Jog around the school to the covered area for some quick Mary. Take turns calling out the name of a childhood pet and all PAX spelled the pet’s name in the air using our feet and tracing the air in block letters. Finish one round and lunge to the nearby concrete circle within the parking lot for COT. YHC took us out.

YHC appreciates catching up with E.F. Hutton at Punisher for most of the summer. Glad to see Tricycle and Animal back out after a few weeks off and also glad these guys brought out FNG Flea. Welcome Flea!
