Stairway to Heaven



Stairway to Heaven

Another great group of men gathered this morning for an unusually warm February morning.  At exactly 5:30, the standard disclaimer was given to the group of 17 and we quickly moved into an extended COT.  With KBs in tow, we handled a variety of exercises: SSH, IW, LSS, Swings, Staggered merkins on bell, Cleans, Snatches, Good Mornings, Overhead Press, Clean and Press, Lap around the dirt track, Rows, and more swings!

Mosey to the lower parking lot, where the center circle area is surrounded by 3 different buildings.  We’d use that area as well as the two adjacent stairwells for the majority of the workout.  The PAX were encouraged to partner with like-size bells.  P1 did called exercise in the circle and P2 ran up and down the stairs before returning to flapjack.  The first set of 4 exercises were double KBs: Squats, Shrugs, Lunges, and Swings.  The second set of 3 exercises were single KBs: Clean and Press, Good Mornings, Snatches.

Mosey back to launch for five minutes of Mary before calling it a day.

Moleskin:  Having enjoyed a pre-run with Baracus prior to launch, YHC was feeling like it was a late spring day prior to beginning.  It was good to sweat!  I had almost forgotten the feeling.  Those stairs aren’t made for big feet.  I found myself really having to concentrate a few times so as not to miss a step, though I still managed to almost mess up!

Great to see a bunch of regulars out this morning.  Guys really are committed and the leaders are doing a good job of bringing consistent KB workouts to Skunk.  If you’re a regular and are not on the Q schedule, I encourage you to see myself or Blazing Saddles about leading.  We’d love to have more guys step up and lead — Skunk is a great place to Q!!

Thanks to Frosty Paws for praying at the end.  Announcements: Brolympics this upcoming weekend.  Continue to pray for Benny and his recovery.
