Wheel Barrow full of Diamonds
Partner up for some wheel barrow walks with a twist…YHC yelled stop, at which point the pax were instructed to do wheel barrow merkins. When YHC got bored of doing merkins, I yelled move again and the wheel barrow race resumed only to be interuptted by more merkins every few yards. Once all the pax reached the other end of the field, flapjack + repeato.
Mosey back to the COP for some Jack Webb.
1 merkin + 4 shoulder presses, 2 merkins + 8 shoulder presses, all the way up to 5 merkins and back down again.

Before all the pain got started, Unfair mentioned that he doesn’t really enjoy running the mile. Imagine how much fun it would be if you were 50 pounds heavier and/or 20 years older!
YHC named the the leg exercises during the running around Lake Ballantyne after the 7 dwarves in hopes of inspiring leg failure and a hunched or shortened stature for the pax unlucky enough to have posted today.
Market Timer and Freely’s Comet got really excited talking about ballet during the calf raises and insisted that we do some monkey humpers. It was awkward.
The wheel barrow merkin race was a real #crowdpleaser. We just might be seeing that one again…
Haggis mentioned that the Sons of Ballantyne will be facing off against the Friends of Fast Twitch on August 27th at a neutral location to be named later.
F3 Foxhole starting up on July 8th at Elon Park Elementary. Market Timer and Honey Bee are your Q’s. Bring a kettlebell.
