BLIMPS are for pimps

BLIMPS are for pimps

Regal lap around the cinema. As we started the lap Chunder asked to do any hill work at the beginning of the workout. Request denied.

10 Side-straddle hops
10 ‘Mericans
10 Imperial Walkers
10 ‘Mericans
10 Low, Slow squats
10 ‘Mericans
10 Bulgarian ball-busters
10 ‘Mericans

My plan today was to keep the miles low, keep the intensity up and keep everyone (relatively) together. Also, No Show specifically requested no BLIMPS, so I made it the theme of the workout. For those who don’t know BLIMPS = 5 Burpees, 10 Lunges (each leg), 15 Imperial Walkers (IC), 20 ‘Mericans, 25 Plank jacks & 30 Squats. You can do it all at once or, as we did today, do an exercise then move to the next station.

We started down the Murderhorn stopping at the top, each street light and the top of the opposite side of the hill/enterance to the park.

5 pullups, 10 heels-to-Heaven & 20 dips
x 3

Starting with burpees at the playground, and staying together, we completed another set of BLIMPS

We met on the backside of the theatre for 50 wall presses. Squid takes his People’s chair form seriously (so should you).

The next BLIMPS set was done with climbs up the grass hill behind the theatre. (I fell once.) Fast guys got to extra run up the hill. Transporter took advantage.

We ran back around the theatre – the long way.

20 flutters
20 Sid the kid
20 Box cutters
10 Low-country crabs
20 Chippy cross

Great crew today – ages from 20s to 50s + an FNG. We stuck together and aside from a few concerns about the Bulgarian ball busters and low-country crabs the mumble-chatter was kept to a minimum.

Kudos to Lex Luther for bringing out “Cheese Steak”. He’s on the road a bunch, but it you see him give him a hello.
