Lots of pressure writing a backblast on the same day as Horsehead. Here goes…
26 men gathered at South Charlotte finest Catholic High School for the weekly gathering that is Centurion. Contrary to Purple Haze’s comments, I have posted at Centurion before – a couple of times 3 years ago, but still. I knew where it was, and Google Maps has pretty good satellite imagery of the campus (really, street view is amazing – that’s how I confirmed the location and adequacy of the rock pile just off campus). After a thorough, well thought out disclaimer, we exercised thusly…
10 burpees (Mermaid said the Centurion guys love burpees), then yog over to the parking deck. Up the stairs to the top, IW, then down the ramps with various warmings up. Assemble at the bottom (9 burpees) to point out the loop to be referred to later, then mosey back down near the launch lot.
Dirty McDeuce – 12x in cadence upper body exercise, 12x leg exercise, 12x Mary, then a lap around that loop I told you about. Repeat 4 times total. There were a couple of interruptions by a slow moving car and a passive aggressive security guard on a golf cart. Mermaid assured me that “this doesn’t usually happen”. 8 burpees
Over to the rock pile on the road over there. 7 burpees. Select a partner and one lifting rock per partner. CMIYC around the block with the chaser doing 5 HR merkins and 5 jump squats. Haze was not happy about the rock that Brushback selected. My partner (Runstopper) was easy to spot in his neon tights (At Fast Twitch this week, Runstopper noted that the shorts over tights look is for the benefit of everyone else, not the wearer.) 6 burpees
With same partners, Partner 1 does an exercise with the rock while Partner B runs over there. Repeated with curls, OH press and triceps while the runs got a little longer each time. 5, 4 and 3 burpee sets interspersed. Somewhere in here I heard Lorax ask if Centurion was an hour long now, and I saw Margo checking his watch. Good indicators. Head back to the launch lot with a stop for 2 burpees. Finish with old school situps, then 1 burpee. Boom.
Chelms is taking donations for the Peru trip for 2 more weeks – summer workout clothes.
Sign up for Joe Davis.
Checkpoint wanted to make sure Haze remembered that Clemson is the national champion.
