Full parking lot at Hoedown


18 eager PAX got their week started off right at Hoedown on a muggy 70+ degree morning. We did:

COP on blacktop: SSH, Don Qs, Russian Soldiers, Helicopters, Merkins, Flutterkicks, Scorpion Kicks.

THE THANG: Start with 4 Corners: 10 Burpees, 20 Hand Release Merkins, 30 V-Ups, 40 Jump Squats. Run the long way and bear crawl the width. Repeato but add 5 reps on all 4 corners.

Partner up & head over to Jerkin bars. Too many PAX so split up groups – 3 sets of 20 PLTs with others do 3 sets of 10 Jerkins. Mosey across street to 3rd. 50 Reverse Crunches OYO.

Partner up again: Wheelbarrow across then back. 60 LBCs. Wheelbarrow there & back again. Mosey back to Triple check alley: Triple Check of Donkey Kicks, Flutterkicks & run the loop.

NMS: There were 5 PAX at 5:26 and YHC had a few ideas for what to serve up. 12 cars later in 3 minutes and those plans changed. Kubota last night asked about 27 burpees to honor the win of the Formerskins. With Gypsy and Fireman Ed nursing their teams losses YHC opted against that.

Now that we are in mid-September Hoedown is back to form as the Darkest AO in RVA. Great to have 18 out to start the week. Been a while since we had that out at Hoedown. Good to see Huggie Bear post at Hoedown and to have Shiplap back from his Honeymoon. We did some pickle pounders at the finish in his honor.

Announcements: Iron Pax tomorrow will be 3 miles of running + 300 Merkins and 250 squats. Bring your running shoes – tomorrow at heartbreak ridge, noToll, or Daville. Also 3rd F Zoom tomorrow night at 8:00.

  1. Great work HD with the impromptu Q. I was fully expecting an all AB work out with IPC on the horizon tomorrow.

    My favorite part of the pre-beatdown conversation was Gomer giving a celestial navigation course to one of the PAX. I’ll admit, Venus did look very bright by the crescent moon this AM.

    No burpees for the Foreskins Formerskins? What has Hoedown become?
