21 men showed up this morning between Impromptu and Swarm to celebrate the 99th day of the year. The weather was fantastic and the overall mood of everyone seemed light. The reason I chose to celebrate the 99th day of the year is that I had no idea what other theme to use or what other significance April 9th had in history. (other than Robert Jenkins ear being cut off by the Spanish Guarde Costa in the Caribbean , later being the catalyst for the war between Brittain and Spain) – but how do you build a workout around that? So 99th day of the year was the theme and I set out to do 99 reps of each exercise but upon thinking about that for half a second, 99 reps seemed rather aggressive, so I just picked 4 areas to workout with a total 99 reps at each area.

This was only my second time leading a workout at this site. I really do like this site, there are a lot of options and areas to get a good workout in. Thank you to Chatterbox for asking me to Q this site and thank you to all the Pax who came out to support me on this wonderful morning.
On the hit TV show One Day At A Time the building maintenance supervisor was a man name Schneider. This morning Watchtower’s own site AO – Tom Evans – Schneider, stepped up to supervise a workout at his own site. Like the super from the TV show he handled everything (except this backblast) like a pro. Schneider stepped in due to some last-minute schedule changes and trying to maintain the no-repeat Q in April. We had 12 men show up for this beatdown.
Mosey from COT to the flag pole
15-side straddle hops
15 imperial Walkers
Calf Stretch (not long enough for Damascus)
-Moseyed from the flag pole to the end of the road in front of the school
Alternating at each light we did 20 squats and 20 American hammers (single count)
-We then moseyed over to the basketball courts and did a JackWebb of Merkin’s and Air Presses
-We moseyed to the back of the school where we did 5 excercises:
10 Donkey Kicks

Each of these was followed by a lap around the track.
-We then lined up on the wall behind the school and did 3 sets of 25air presses and 25 Jabs each time getting lower on the wall.
-We finished up with doing 4 corners on the track
10 Big boys
We did this 2 times.

Schneider had laid out a great workout this morning. We logged a little over 2.5 miles. The weather was great.
O-69’s VQ Tomorrow
Downtown Waxhaw Cleanup Next Saturday
7 Pax plus the Q showed up for a beautiful Saturday morning. Posse had been hitting me up for months, so I finally gave in to the pressure. We had just recently turned the clocks back, and the sun was already rising, so it was nice not having to wear headlamps for the morning workout.
Did chest presses while waiting for the six then we did:
The small group of guys allowed us to used the fire pit area while maintaining social distancing. I had planned on doing 2 sets of each group but after the first set we realized we would not have enough time to do all the exercises. All in all it went well.
