12 of Waxhaw’s finest (yes, Moneyball, we include Mineral Springs as part of Waxhaw . . . but not Monroe DW) adhered to the call for headlamps and reflective gear as we were going old school. When Hollywood and Halfback started this workout, they created a strict set of rules to follow so YHC wanted to ensure this long list was followed to a T.
Toughest workout in Waxhaw
Minimum 4+ miles
Opening 1 mile at faster than mosey pace
Opening mile to Lawson clubhouse
SSH, Imperial Squawkers, Mike Tysons
Mosey to an open garage and steal some heavy weights
P1 runs with weight / P2 does 10 T-Tap merkins and catches P1
Bottom of Dearmeadows nasty hill . . . Do we have a name for this hill?
3 burpees at top of hill
Exercises at bottom of hill
3 sets of shoulder presses (Reps = 70 minus # of lbs of your weight)
3 sets of bicep curls
3 sets of goblet squats
Mosey back the garage
P1 runs up 2 mailboxes and does Dorothy Hurleys
P2 runs with weight overhead
Fast mosey back to COT with some exercises along way
MOST VALUABLE PAX:
Hollywood also created the Ignition MVP award where he gives out a “Party Rock” shirt to the winner
If you haven’t received one yet, you aren’t trying hard enough in his eyes
Not sure who was the MVP from today as Hollywood likes to give the award in private but I have my guesses
Thanks to Carb Load for bringing the phone (that is a MUST if you are going any distance away from COT)
Legal Zoom was a heck of a partner today . . . Thanks for getting to me so quickly on that last weighted mosey
Easy Button is getting faster . . . Dude was crushing the hill today
Glidah and Gerber were seemingly getting faster up the hill each time
Wolverine and Hollywood aren’t human
Zinfandel back strong today after Mr. Mom weekend
Recalculating and Deflated impressed me today with no slowing down despite nagging injuries
Dasher is so consistent . . . Always up front and pushing
March is “1 Q” month: 60+ workouts need 60+ PAX to step up and lead . . . Do your part and ask somebody. Don’t wait to be asked. Be a leader!
Posse: Lost his job recently. Looking for title of CEO, Chairman of the Board, or Housewife (I believe I caught that correct but I’ll defer to Goodfella’s backblast). Reach out to him on LinkedIn and see how you can help.
Gator Cub: His son has been battling an illness and was recently diagnosed. Thankfully it appears treatable.
Easy Button: Him and his wife (who is a lot faster than him) recently became foster parents to a teenage girl. Lots of adjustments for them so reach out if you can help in anyway.
Goodfella took us out with a Ball of Man around Posse . . . #IronSharpensIron
