The Canadian Rock Star

The Canadian Rock Star

Earlier in the week, YHC reached out to the site-Q for audio support in preparation for today’s workout.  Wednesday night’s tweet from Voodoo had me thinking we’d possibly just hit the Repeat button on the Robin Hood soundtrack.  For those of you wondering, I’ve endured – yet embraced – the fact that I share the namesake of the Canadian Rock Star Bryan Adams.  However, I do spell my name different (Brian) but the verbal communication is one and the same!  It’s a good thing that I actually enjoy most of his music, as I described to the PAX this morning that Summer of ‘69 was my warm-up/intro song during my baseball career.  Hence, the “embrace your place” motto!

All that being said prior to launch, we actually started on time at 0530 with the usual disclaimer. With 14 of us ready to sling some iron, the workout went like this:

COT:  SSH x 15, IW x 15, Merkins x 10, KB swings x 15, LSS x 10, KB swings x 10, Halo x 3, Prying Squats x 3.

The Thang: YHC struggled a bit out of the gate with the explanation of today’s workout. Led to a little confusion but we all quickly adjusted and got on the same page.

5 sets of 3 called exercises, in reps of 6,8,10,8,6.  Lunge walks at the end of the 5 sets. (Had I explained it that way originally we’d been golden!)

1st round – Cleans, OH press, Snatches

2nd round – Triceps, Biceps, Merkins

3rd round – Goblet squats, Good mornings, Single leg deadlift

Moleskin: It was humid this morning!! Glad I chose not to pre-run, as I’m always challenged to hold onto the KB with sweaty hands.  Kudos to those that did run— those BRR-ers gotta get their miles in.  Great group of men, not a lot of talking as the high reps were taking their tolls on us all.  Thank you to Voodoo for the opportunity to lead and for the musical accompaniment!


1) Crane Relay – last weekend in October. Waiting list to participate.  Should be fun!

2) Labor Day convergence – 0700 at BaseCamp

Thank you for leading, Chin Music. This morning’s workout doesn’t look too bad on paper, but I can confirm that it was tough. I’ll be feeling that tomorrow when I try to get out of bed. You also took the ribbing about the music very much in stride – you were totally unfazed. A great job all around!
