Pain station 5 -(ZZ Tops)- cul de- sac up hill ( Robbins meadows)- from cul-de sac to stop sign alternate 10 walking lunges and 10 klow slow squats with mailboxes on the right.

 

Moleskin-

This was a heck of a workout today and all groups pushed themselves hard but no groups fully completed all pain stations, everyone completed 4 . This workout was designed to push the PAX too the limit and in my opinion it absolutely did, nice work Ricky Bobby! The Briar’s and Crester’s might be putting the workout to use in the future and work towards a goal of completing this on a individual level. Have a good weekend boys and hope to see all you peeps soon.

 

Thanks to Ricky Bobby for taking us out….

Today Schneider, Chastain and I wanted to show the group since they are new a ignition based workout and I think we did. The group today got some mileage while also sprinkling in some good ole favorites like Mike Tysons and bomb jacks. I know we are not following the format of virtual weinke’s but we are pushing ourselves just as hard and trying to recruit some new blood for when the sites get reopened. We are FOLLOWING social distancing rules and ensuring safety guidelines are being followed at all times.. You did not hear it from me but I overheard a few PAXS speaking about a Octuplet !!!  I appreciate each and everyone of you guys for the push, playing, and holding us accountable via groupme during these crazy times. It would be very easy for some or all of us to crawl in a hole and get in a dark place and not post during these unprecedented times— but the comic relief, consistent banter back and forth and  the peer pressure to post somewhere is helping us all, at least me.. KEEP IT UP BOYS…..  HAVE A GREAT VIRUS FREE DAY

We had a great group today for some fun leg and arm work in the LARGE paved roads in the Briars and Crest. Even though we are on lockdown and panic is everywhere it is great to just gather ( but stay 6 feet apart) and get some good work in . It is also inspiring and uplifting to have some local kids get out with us and get their sweat on. Also I love seeing my nieces out here kicking some serious but– both Julia and Ava killed it today, proud uncle

We actually had 3 more FNGS TODAY in the Briars and Crest.

Ava Hayes ( Pulisic) named after USA soccer start Christian Pulisic.

Also we had the two FNGS from Saturday actually finish the workout and get their name now- Tyler Panek (Pinto) named after what he is going to school for – auto mechanic on high end cars

Nate Nelson ( Inspector Gadget) named after what he is going to school for – auto mechanic — but now we need to change his name to just inspector cuase it appears we have a inspector gadget  oppsps..

The Warm Up
Mosey around parking lot and down in front of school near flag pole for some warm ups

15- low slow squats, 10- slow merkins, calve stretch, plank and elbow plank

The Thang

Since the forecast was a wet one today and chickens are not like ducks— the goal today was to keep the PAX moving and off the ground, wet feathers suck…so we started at the flag pole and played 3 corners- corner 1 is stop sign by bus lot, corner 2 is  stop sign near road and corner 3 is the sidewalk near the road that leads up to the flag pole. The PAX will start at the long road near the school where the flagpole is and hit each corner in order doing a exercise then running back to the starting point. But each time they pass a corner they have to complete that exercise again before heading to the next corner.

round 1 –  corner 1- 10 jump squats, corner 2- 20 speed skaters,  corner 3 – 20 bobby hurleys

round 2- corner 1- 10 wide merkins, corner 2-10 diamond merkins, corner 3- 20 SLOW merkins

Now it is time for a little partner work on the long road in front of the school. Partners stand back to back on the long road each facing one of the stop signs at the other end of the road– 10 walking lunges and 20 bear crawls away from each other -rinse and repeat 3 times. Once complete sprint back to your partner form 10 hand slap merkins. Now, it is time for the good ole Indian run everyone loves so much – in groups of three Indian Run down road in front of school and through the whole parking lot—guy in the back needs to do 5 bomb jacks before sprinting to the front. Did someone say wall work??? I believe so , so we finished our Indian Run on the wall near the track for some good ole fashion wall work.

I appreciate Smithers and Doughboy allowing me the opportunity to lead this group of men within our community and I always feel honored when I Q, even though I almost forgot about it and hell I could not remember who asked me to Q– DAMN CHICKEN BRAIN as Zinfandel so eloquently put it this morning— chickens have feelings too..  lol. The PAX was very chattery today it might have been the light sprinkles or the lighter mood since the dark clouds over the playhouse have seemed to have passed over the last few days, but either way there was some good banter and conversations mixed in with a good workout.
