“We STOP for Burpees” in WaxVegas!



“We STOP for Burpees” in WaxVegas!

Posted on behalf of Goodfella . . . Who after 2 years in F3 STILL claims he doesn’t have a login

This (delayed) Backblast comes after some “corporate” peer pressure from @Moneyball and @Bottlecap, which is ironic in and of itself! Since @Moneyball missed some major workout details in his Ghost-written BB in an effort to keep the “streak” alive for The Floater, I wanted to fill in the gaps. Here we go…

Thursday mornings have certainly gotten interesting lately in WaxVegas, with 2 great AO’s starting up recently. Pursuit is an awesome running workout in the/my great neighborhood of Millbridge, but The Floater sets up shop in beautiful downtown Waxhaw. YHC has been conflicted about which to attend since I enjoy both, but haven’t been able to make either lately due to some very overrated work travel.

After Bottle Cap pinch hit for us at Dromedary a few weeks ago, I told him I wanted to return the favor at The Floater. 4/5/18 would be the day for my first Floater Q. Needed to prepare for this, not to disappoint the Pax.

Warmup at Dreamchasers Brewery:

  • 20 SSH IC
  • 20 Mountain Climbers IC
  • 20 Plank Jacks IC
  • 15 Cherry Pickers (at the request of someone) IC
  • 20 Squats IC

The Thang:

Mosey across The Bridge and Behind Maxwell’s.

At each STOP sign = 3 Burpees. 7 total STOPS for Burpees (21  total).

Mosey back in front of Dreamchasers. Partner up at the Big Tree for “100’s” of each:

  • P1 Dips/P2 Run to STOP Sign & (1) Burpee
  • P1 Derkins/P2 Run to STOP Sign & (1) Burpee
  • P1 Knee-Ups/P2 Run to STOP Sign & (1) Burpee

All-in we did about (10) additional Burpees (up to 31 total now).

Mosey over to “KeithJongHill” since apparently every Floater workout ends up there

At each STOP sign = Burpees. 12 more Burpees completed. Total of 43 Burpees now.

Grab a Lifting Rock at the new construction site for more partner work.

150 Total Reps of each as a team:

  • P1 Bicep Curls/P2 runs up KeithJongHill to Stop Sign and back
  • P1 Tricep Ext/P2 runs up KeithJongHill to Stop Sign and back
  • P1 Overhead Press/P2 runs up KeithJongHill to Stop Sign and back

Repeat exercises for 100 reps of each:

  • P1 Bicep Curls/P2 runs up KJ’s Hill to Stop Sign and back
  • P1 Tricep Ext/P2 runs up KJ’s Hill to Stop Sign and back
  • P1 Overhead Press/P2 runs up KJ’s Hill to Stop Sign and back

Some did 1/2 reps so completed early. Repeat the above for 50 of each. All-in we ran up that nasty hill 10-12 times each.

5-minute warning sounded on YHC’s watch so we moseyed back to the Church. We didn’t forget to STOP for more Burpees so we got in (9) more on the way to COT. Grand Total of (52) Burpees as part of the workout. Nice work!

Quick Mary with 1 minute remaining. H2H and LBC. Name-o-Rama.

Moleskin:

The Pax worked hard at The Floater (but not as hard as Rockwell did trying to figure out where to park in Metropolitan Waxhaw!), and I think even @theRealFrack enjoyed it since he got to lift rocks. Not bad when we can get >50 Burpees in over the course of a workout. Thanks for allowing me to lead the Pax and I look forward to future Floater Q’s, and maybe even another Backblast.

Moneyball already wrote up the announcements so I won’t repeat them.

Until next time, fellas!
