Less than ideal weather welcomed a faithful PAX at today’s Gridiron. Cover and variety ruled. Here is how it went down: Mosey to the bus loop for COPIWDQHelicoptersArm circlesSuzanne SomersDead man hangDeck of death without the cards, just work through the exercises: COT with YHC taking us out Good work from the PAX today. Plenty of opportunity to grumble, but got a lot in. Shoe drive in December. Check Slack or text Gypsy. God is good all of the time! Attila

On a cold but sunny morning 7 Pax showed up ready to work. After the warm-up, we did modified beast: starting with 12 hand-release-merkins, going to 18 WWII, 24 squats, down to 6 burpees, 12 Freddie Mercuries, finishing with 18 hammers. After some running did three sets of People’s Chair 15 Air Press, 10 BTTW Hip Slaps, 15 Donkey Kix OYO. Some more running, three sets of 5 pull ups and 20 dips. Finished with ring of fire of merkings. My sincere apologies for posting so late. May be some kind of record.

World Cup Fever descended upon the GridIron this morning. Since the WC has 32 teams in 8 groups of 4, we too had plenty of 32, 8 and 4 counts. After a brief warm up we headed to burpee hill for 4 reps of 8 burpees to get our cardio going. Then a mosey to the soccer field for a modified Beast (4 reps and 8 counts) of WWIIs, Squats, Fredy Mercuries, Merkins, and more. Broke up the Beast with a break of short sided soccer with 1/2 doing crab walks and 1/2 doing bear crawls, and penalty shots with…

Pre-workout discussion of changes to Pouncey Track Park. Additional Pickleball courts are proposed, along with additional parking and moving the pull-up bars. There’s also the Tuckahoe Tomahawks playing today. Mosey to near the pull-up bars. It’s great to have a workout to go to on Saturday mornings (and the rest of the week for that matter.) One thing I do miss is the 2nd F after the workout on Saturday. Between Vacations, childcare and in the next two weeks, Cub Scouts, I’ve missed a lot of 2nd F on Saturday. I’m hoping to get back to showing up starting in…

Dora of 100 2count lunges, 200 squats, and 300 heel raises with a 40 yard jaunt between exercises. Series of (5) 20 count WWIIs every 10 yards with bear crawls between, followed by 20 count of Reverse Crunches, Freddy Mercury, Heels to Heaven, and American Hammers with bear craws between the sets until we finished the 100 yard field.
