This being my first Q at Rebel Yell I wanted to introduce the PAX to hairburners. They work very well on The Maul’s frigid pavement. I drove up with Loogie in tow and saw a single man swinging a KB under the bright Maul lights. Apparently Crab Cake was the only one who decided to partake in the pre KB workout.
The warm up was a shoulder and core blaster. The idea was to remain in plank as much as possible. I heard many groans from the PAX as the exercises kept coming with the only break being Burpees.
During the pain stations Crab Cake asked who pissed me off, since it seemed this workout was especially brutal today. No anger behind this plan, just a good morning to work hard. I think at that point the KB work had taken its toll on Crabbers. Strong showing by Spinner who was in my group and keeping up a strong pace.
Hairburners brought the expected moans and comments from the regular Maul PAX, with Loogie and Chipotle being the loudest of the bunch. TR claimed his plate wasn’t as smooth as the others making it more difficult to push. So he switched with my group for the inch worms. I think he was right. That thing felt like it had glue on the bottom of it.
Excellent work today by all the PAX. We avoided major injury and ended up with just a hobbled Pebbles. Remember to modify all exercises as needed. Thanks as always for the privilege to lead a great group of mostly old men.
