Not Paddleball


Eleven gathered for Saturday’s GridIron at the usual location. Under normal circumstances, our use of Pouncey Tract Park is free from conflicts with other users at 7 AM, but this was Virginia Paddleball Classic weekend and the lot was full early. While we might mosey near or on the paddleball courts during GridIron, we went the other way for Saturday’s workout.

Mosey to the football field and loosen legs with a few 10 yard repeats with High Knees, Butt Kickers, and Karaoke. Circle for 25 x Invisible Jump Ropes, 20 x Hillbillies, 15 x Don Quixotes, 15 x Helicopters, 10 x Elevated Suzanne Somers (one side), 20 x APDs, 10 x Elevated Suzanne Somers (other side), and a few Arm Circles.

Jog to the school for five minutes of Donkey Kicks. Complete 30 or more Donkey Kicks and rest for the remainder of the minute. Five rounds.

Hit the bus shelter and pick a pole for 20 x Pole Smokers followed by 20 x Plie Squats. Three rounds.

Circle up in the nearby grass for Jack Webb with Arm Circle chaser. Complete one Merkin, four Overhead Presses, and eight Arm Circles. Wait until all are done. Complete two, eight, and sixteen. Wait. And so on, maintaining the same ratio until 11/44/88 are completed.

Shift to the sidewalk. Using a three large, wooden dice, roll one to determine the exercise and the other two to determine the number of reps. Initial determination was 1=SSH, 2=WWII Sit Up, 3=Plank Jack, 4=Flutter Kicks, 5=American Hammers, and 6=Burpees, but we had some lawless moments in our efforts to complete a couple of rounds. More Merkins! Nobody likes Plank Jacks! Rigging the roll to maximize Burpees! And so on.

Saunter back to the parking lot for COT and YHC took us out.
