Bringing Back Non Running Boot Camps



Bringing Back Non Running Boot Camps

As I said on Twitter the rain would stop, of course the ground was soaked. 8 men still skipped the temptation of fart sacing and headed into the gloom for an old school boot camp.

The warm up:
One lap around the parking lot and circle up. Gave the disclaimer cause we had two new FNGs Jane and Stich head locked by Jock Strap.
20 X SHH
20 X IW
10 X slow merkins
20 X Squats

The Thang:
Line up at the first hoop, run to each of the next three hoops stopping at each, then run back to starting hoop elbow plank until everyone is done
1st hoop 10 regular merkins
2nd hoop 10 close grip merkins
3rd hoop 10 wide arm merkins
Pax loved this and even more excited when I said we would do it again but with 20 merkins at each hoop.

Only 10 mins in and 100 merkins down, should not have lifted Tuesday. That reminded me my apologies to Queen if he made it to Gumby. I had told him all about it and was ready to go, until Smokey emailed me at midnight letting me know I have to Q. Well back to the workout

After warming up the chest we moseyed to the bleachers by the baseball field on the way grabbing a rock and picking a partner.
Round 1.
Partner 1 will run to the bleachers by the track then do 20 X Jump Squats, 20 X step ups, 20 X Lunges
Partner 2 does 10 X curls, 10 X Dips, 10 X supine pullups and repeats until partner gets back
Flip flop then plank until everyone has completed both
Round 2.
Partner 1 will run to the bleachers by the track then do 20 X Jump Squats, 20 X step ups, 20 X Lunges
Partner 2 Does 20 X deadlifts, 20 X overhead press, 20 X supine pullups repeat until partner gets back
Flip flop and plank until everyone has completed both
Round 3.
Partner 1 will run to the bleachers by the track then do 20 X Jump Squats, 20 X step ups, 20 X Lunges
Partner 2 10 curls, 10, deadlifts, 10 overhead presses, 10 dips and 10 supine pullups repeat until your partner gets back
Flip flop then plank until everyone has completed both. Of course, the Q was last on the run part.

Mosey back to the school while dropping the rocks

Circle up for some jack webb, not as easy as everyone thinks
1 merkin and 4 air presses
2 merkins and 8 air presses
Only made it to 6 merkins and 24 air press everyone sure was quick to point out we had run out of time

Moleskin:
Thank you, Dollywood and Smokey, for the honor of letting me Q always a privilege. Smokey next time let me know before midnight the day before. I got a great deal on shorts at the adidas sale last month still not sure what the shorts are for not for swimming, not for working out, not casual wear but very uncomfortable. Great job by the pax and FNGs, I think this is the first time I was at a workout where the majority was in their 20s. Welcome Jane and Stich both already in excellent shape, although they could stand to practice a little more jack webb. Well Jane used to climb trees and Tarzan was too strong of a name. Stich, got stiches on his chin back in the day. Q asked for embarrassing moments. Jock Strap nice job with the headlocks. Pudding Pop thanks for being my partner. Funky cold excellent job out there today and need to hear how you got that name. Smokey thanks for taking us out.
