It Was Gnarly Out There


2 Southsiders ignored the lightning, mud, and torrential downpours; and took a trip back to the 1980’s. Kip Winger and other musical luminaries provided the background sound. Here is a brief summary for your viewing pleasure:

Mosey to the Dog Park shelter for Warm up: Don Quixotes, Arm Circles, Helicopters, Dead Man Hang, Freddy Mercuries, Hand Release Merkins.

Exercise One: 1980’s Trivia challenge. Had to modify slightly due to having one participant. If Florence got the answer correct: he called the exercise (either 80 seconds or 80 reps). If Florence is wrong, host calls the exercise. Hurdle the mud pit, run to the fence and back.

Completed the following: Lt. Dans, Squats, Calf Raises, Merkins, HR Merkins, Hold Plank, Lunges, Dips, LBC’s, Flutter Kicks, WWII’s, Mountain Climbers, Alabama Prom Dates…………might have missed a few.

Mosey to the parking lot for Man Harmers:
10 side straddle hops, forward straddle hop across parking lot, 20 SSH’s………worked our way up to 80.

Mosey back to the Flag for Numbers/Names/Announcements.

YCH took us out. 2nd F at Starbucks

Final Thoughts: Having been born in 1990, Florence did a damn fine job during the trivia challenge. He got several right, and was at least familiar with all the various shows/movies/music. This particular workout seems to be a bit snakebitten as YHC caught COVID prior to the initial date, and we were welcomed with some insane weather this morning. May try to reboot over the summer – there was also talk of a 1990’s trivia challenge. Really enjoyed chatting with Florence during and after the workout.

  1. This is one of those “Q’s you’ll never forget”. Thanks for leading Chap. Those questions were very specific on the details haha. Thoroughly enjoyed the 2nd F at Starbucks too. Good times (and fast times at Ridgemont High)
