THE THANG: Cards n' Laps

Backblast 101719

Pax: Nice N Easy, Vamos, Sugar Ray, Bumper (F3 Columbus), Ragnar (QIC)

Moleskine:

Block-tober continued on a sweet chilly morning. Bumper joined the group from F3 Columbus, and pointed out a few constellations (Pegasus) during the clear skied weather. Perfect working out weather and while Ragnar sneaked in some yoga moves, this was pure block pain.

What we did: 

Lap with Block

Blockjacks

Side Block Plank dips

Mountain/Forward Fold 

Peter Blockin’ Parker/Parker Blockin’ Peters

Blocky Balboas

Big Boy Situps

Grand Blockin’ Slams (Overhead Block Carries around the Diamond)

Blocks-age Works (10 Pullups while pax do Block Crunches)

People’s Block Chairs (Pax holds 10 or calls out exercises. NNE proved himself to be Block Master 2019 by calling out Block Curls)

21s on Merlot Hill

(20 Block Curls at bottom, 1 Goblin Squat at top. Flip to 1-20)

Bumper offered up prayers for wisdom, courage, and fearlessness for us to be leaders, to face down the lions in our lives with the faith that their mouths will be shut. Let’s keep up Block-tober momentum.


Backblast 101219

Pax: Pinto, Jiffy, BG, Orville, Sugar Ray, Skinner, Nice N Easy, Boomer, Miyagi, Tahoe, Crosscheck, Primus, Ragnar (QIC)

Moleskine: 41 degrees and the QIC made a HC to a full-on Broga session. Since it was practically freezing, Primus showed up early to run laps (and trip a couple times) with Tahoe, Crosscheck, Miyagi, NNE, and Ragnar. Short mosey up to the cop station to make a bunch of jokes and find that sweet spot between relaxation and pushing the limit.

Here’s what we did:

Seated stretch/Table/Block/Thread the Needle/Plank/Merkins/GATE (with a T)/Twist/High Lunge/Runners Lunge/Warrior 1/Lunge Twist/Mountain/Palm Tree/Easy Tree/King Dancer/Wide Stance, Side Angel Stretch/Traingle Post/Down Dog/Child’s Pose/Sphynx/Cobra/Locust/King Pigeon/Full Pigeon/Staff/Head2Knee/Boat/Buddha Crunch/Twists/Bridge/Corpse/Shoulder Stand/Banana/Superman/Goddess/Corpse

We made killer time, so QIC opened it to the group. Orville aka Mr Hard2Please led the group in 30 burpees in 1 minute. The equivalent of a T-Payne rap after an Enya ballad. A few others in between. BG took us out with Merkins. 

Popcorn Prayers all around, for those in tough times. 

QIC wishes to extend extra thanks for the group. This was a personal accomplishment, leading a big group through a full brogan session for the first time. It was a little uneven—hard for some and easy for others—but a decent first attempt with a big group. Next time, will modify as needed.
