12 dudes (6 boot camp and 6 mashers) beat a case of the Mondays and checked into the Asylum.
Started with a moving warmup today. Mosey around the Hickory Tavern lot then circle up for 15 SSHs. Mosey to the front of target then circle up for 15 Imperial Walkers. Mosey to the back of the Target lot for 10 Potato Pickers and some calf stretching. Mosey to the Petsmart lot for 6 Windmills.
4 Corner Deconstructed Burpees – At each corner do the called exercise
Mosey to the Target parking lot
A twist on 4 Corners
Back to the Petsmart lot and line up along one curb
Fuse informed me that we weren’t actually doing V Ups the first time so we corrected that on the second round. Apparently actual V Ups suck more. Thanks Fuse.
Mosey back to the Target lot, partner up and line up across from your partner on a parking space line. The goal is to keep your partner honest on their form by staring each other in the eyes while doing the called exercise
Fuse claims I called low, slow Squats which we did not do. They were speedier. It is possible I said that as those Merkins/plank walks were killer.
Mosey to the alley between Hickory Tavern and the Greco Grill and find some wall
Running low on time we moseyed to the benches in front of Hickory Tavern for some partner work
My goal today was to keep the mileage lower but still keep the heart rates up. My Strava says 2.01 miles and I spent 50% of the workout in Zone 4/Threshold range. Mission accomplished? Yuck. I’m beat. Nap time, maybe?
Usually I like to swing by the MASHers and see what they’re up to but I had tunnel vision this morning trying to recover from those Merkin/Plank Walks and knowing we were heading into the Donkey Kicks. Mayhem was leading them this morning so I know they got a good workout. Great job taking the lead this morning! Congrats to Turnbuckle and Sledge-O-Matic on their huge milestones! If you get the chance ask them both what they’ve been up to because it’s incredibly impressive. Legalized broke his foot, guys. Like, several times. I heard it was so he could get out of doing burpees, but regardless, he’s still out there MASHing while on crutches! If you think you can’t get out and do SOMETHING for your 1st F then you’re just making up excuses. Good job, Legalized! Speaking of excuses, I’ve worked on EHing several guys to come out to F3 and I’ve heard the “I’m too old” excuse a ton. Blue Screen is like 400 years old and he’s out there KILLING it. He’s most of the reason those Merkin/Plank Walks I keep complaining about were so horrible. He was my partner for that one and he was pumping out Merkins faster than I could say “down!”. Pretty sure he did more than the called number each time. I hadn’t seen Swimmers in forever and apparently he was just on vacation. Getting back to working out after a week off and making bad eating choices every night is always tough (that was me a couple weeks ago), but Swimmers sure didn’t show it. Up front on all the exercises. Fusebox has a low key, slightly sarcastic way of keeping me honest on the exercises. “That’s not how I do V-Ups” or “What was low or slow about those Squats?” Duly noted, Fuse. Posse, on the other hand, makes me double-check my instructions every step of the way. Not sure if he’s doing it to mess with me or not, but I make sure to give extra clear instructions when Posse posts with me.
