Bartman (F3Knoxville), Primus, Tahoe, Ragnar, Nice-N-Easy, Miyagi and Pinto (QIC)
Humid and hot, the coming workout would be a sweat fest, but 7 Pax showed up for Pinto’s VQ. We were glad to see Bartman join us from Tennessee.
Deceivingly simple, the Pax wondered if Pinto’s VQ would need to be usurped to insure an adequate beat down, but in the end they were not disappointed.
Moseyed over to the hill for a partner routine, partners alternating between bear crawling (theme of the day) up the hill/crab walking down and performing 100 Merkins, 200 LBCs and 300 Squats. Now we were warmed up!
The Wall (not Pink Floyd):
Moseyed over to the wall for the People’s Chair and a few lame jokes, followed by a new exercise that may end up as a keeper – Mike Tyson’s, but we need to bark cadence in more of a high-pitched voice next time.
A routine the Pax hadn’t seen in a while. Moseyed over to the back of the upper field, then made our way across the field and back doing approximately three sets of this six exercise progressive routine. The BLIMPS acronym stands for 5 Burpees, 10 Lunges, 15 Imperial Walkers, 20 Merkins, 25 Plank Jacks and 30 Squats.
Field of Dreams:
Moseyed over to the baseball diamond and set up stations at 1B, 2B, 3B and Home. The team at home performed 15 Burpees, while 1B did Merkins, 2B did LBCs and 3B did Squats. Each team them rotated to the next station until all were completed. Oh Yeah, forgot to mention, of course we bear crawled from station to station. The Q gave the option of a running Pete Rose dive into the next base instead of bear crawling, but nobody accepted.
Catch Me If You Can:
After moseying back over to the upper field for the final routine, the Pax paired off with the same partners. While one partner bear crawled (of course), the second partner performed 15 Imperial Walkers, and then ran to catch their partner and switch roles. Up and back on the field, and we were complete.
Rotation of four favorites, ending with Miyagi’s famous Table exercise to close.
Reminder for Memorial Day session (Murph) and the June Convergence. Primus took us out.
