I was asked in advance by Southern Belle if I could ghost write his first Back Blast due to an early morning trip to Wilmington. I warned him that as I’ve said in the past, if I have to ghost write it….I’m bringing the pain as to deter others from not writing the BB. He agreed and said go do it because otherwise the BB wouldn’t come at all. So here goes….
17 Pax showed up to see if an old man could make it through his own workout. Many were disappointed to find out he could. Southern Belle stepped out of the car with a determined look on his face and a head band that looked similar to what the ski bunnies (or maybe honeys?) wear on the slopes. As with most VQ’s, it started with some questionable counting and flubbed exercise names. Well – actually he got the exercise name right….I think the pax just didn’t want to do it so they pretended to question the name.
Mosey to the….wait…..what, no mosey? Has this guy lost his mind. We always start with a mosey. Even Big Ten did a 10 foot mosey. This Q has lost his mind. Is he going to skip Side Straddle Hops too?????
Mosey to Main Street area. Not sure the road name but its the one Mary O’Neil’s is on. Q called out a light post workout. 5 Burpees at the first 5 light posts, 10 Q Jacks at next 5 light posts, 10 Mountain climbers at last 5 light posts. Q was near the front….q juice was strong this morning.
Lunge Walk past dream chasers then alternating 10 merkins and 10 squats at the lights. Go to end of the road and then bring it back. This was a variation of a transporter workout in which we did 10 merkins at each light. I initially thanked Southern Belle for adding squats in as it didn’t make it feel as bad….though now as I’m writing this I am realizing the doubling back part means we did just as many Merkins as transporter….but also that many squats. You ole’ sneaky B****** (Insert what ever B word you wish there, I for one like the 7 letter one). Q doubled back past me way faster than I was expecting. Mary waiting on
me the 6…..they appeared to be waiting awhile. Probably because most of the Clydesdales were talking about how we could Q jack the workout and do keg stands at dream chasers instead.
Light post work again. 10 Plank Rotations at first 5 lights, 5 jump squats at next 5 lights, followed by 5 hand release merkins with a bear crawl in between the lights. For me, the plank rotations are a deceptive ab workout. I could feel my obliques tightening up towards the end. Made some ground up on the jump squats….probably because I had bad form and not because I was faster. Got to the hand release merkins and decided
the heck with this to modify most of the bear crawls. By this time there was lots of complaining from the pax about hands hurting and rough asphalt. Southern Belle seemed to have a gleeful smile listening to the whining, or perhaps he was just glad that someone finally through out rubber maids gloves (by the way, mad love to the person that did that. We all owe you one). Southern Belle called out dips and step ups to mary as we waited on the 6 (which for once wasn’t me).
5 minutes left….what to do, what to do. Southern Belle decided we would mosey back to start for abs. Frack took an early lead and never looked back.
