Pick your Partner



Pick your Partner

We had a great group this morning at Skunkworks. Numbers are better now that we’re out of the single digits on the thermometer.

Here was the game plan.

Side straddle hop, Imperial Walker, 10 swings oyo…then pick your partner wisely.

Catch me if you can (5 merkins) down to the courtyard.

This is where the thinking started. Workouts were called but the number of reps depended on you and your partner.

Snatches (R and L) = total number of letters in first names of P1 and P2

Cleans (R and L) = total number of letters in middle names of P1 and P2

*It’s worth noting that someone (I think Horse Head) has the middle name Ashley. It was agreed by all within earshot that it is definitely a girl’s name.

Clean and Press (R and L) = total number of letters in last names of P1 and P2

Curls = total number of letters in P1’s full name

Tricep Extensions = total number of letters in P2’s full name

Burpees = total letters in both F3 names combined. Big League Chew and Country Livin’s partners immediately regretted their choices, though there was a brief debate about whether or not to count Country Livin’s apostrophe.

Goblet Squat = combined number of letters in P1’s and P2’s birth city

T Bag Squat = combined age based on digits of P1 and P2 (29 = 2 + 9 = 11)

Good mornings = combined number of letters in P1 and P2’s college

Overhead press = birthdate of P1 (06/02/88 = 24)

High pulls = birthday of P2


P1 – up the stairs with the bell, squat + overhead press every two steps, 5 at each landing

P2 – left arm merkins with bell, left arm rows (flapjack)

P1 – up the stairs with the bell, t bag squat + high pull every two steps, 5 at each landing

P2  – right arm merkins with bell, right arm rows (flapjack)

——–

P1 – lap around church

P2 – swings (flapjack)

P1 – lap around church

P2 – flutter w/ press every 4 (flapjack)

——–

P1 – run to the parking lot rock

P2 – freddy mercury (flapjack)

P1 – run to the parking lot rock

P2 – lbc (flapjack)

 

Catch me if you can back to the parking lot.

Team Victor-Ashley was definitely in the house.

Don’t be jealous.

Uhhh….somebody should tell Yeti he forgot Ye Olde Moleskine. Victor Ashley was on “As The World Turns” for years….

Other observations about the goings-on at Skunk this morning:

* Horsehead is surprisingly bad at math for an engineer
* Was special to see Harley & CR partner – loving bro’s-in-law
* Was also special to actually see CR in the Area51 gloom
* Bulldog was incredulous at Horsehead’s middle name, calling it a “girl’s name”..he’s right of course
* Thankful Country Livin’ swapped KB’s with me…the extra 5 lbs. would have meant I couldn’t lift my arms until Friday; so I look forward to lifting them Thursday
* Skunk pax needs to learn to run on the right, up/down stairs on the right, etc. — made especially dangerous on stairwells while doing squats and overhead presses; Bulldog, in particular, ran on the left. Some habits never die
* Spackler was unsuccessful in recruiting a Q for Semi-Gloss for tomorrow at DV; OT = DV for Spackler apparently
* Marge is heading to Phoenix for some R&R, but he promised CR he would EH 2 Phoenix-area men for the launch of F3Phoenix
* Good creative Q by Yeti.
* Lastly, remember to keep Header (a Skunk regular) and his family in your prayers at the passing of his dad.
