Horse Head on Q
2 laps around the shovel flag track
20 x SSH
20 x IW
20 x Mountain Climbers
20 x Peter Parker’s
Mosey to Pain Station and pick out a friendly looking rock and a partner.
With 3 cones spaced about 10, 20, and 30 yards from baseline… 1st man does a hairburner to the 10 yard cone and back w/ snow saucer while partner does Russian Twist with his rock. Then flapjack.
Then 1st man goes to 20 yard cone and back, while his partner does the Russian Twist with his rock. Then flapjack.
1st man to 30, with LBC’s. Then flapjack.
Switcheroo your partner. Rinse and repeat hair burners with flutter kick and press with your rock.
Switcheroo your partner. Replace burners with inchworm and just hit the 10 and 20 yard marker while your partner tries to breathe and coordinate some kind of ab work with the rock. I think we ended up doing static hip bridge with rock press and mixed in a little pullover action.
Catch your breath and set your pet rock free.
Late Show on Q so we Indian Run to Elementary School
Stop 1/2 way for 30 sec mtn climber, 30 sec right side plank, 30 sec left side plank.
Time was short so we skipped the planned Picnic jumpups and pullup ladder.
Here it is so you know what fun ya missed out on:
(1) pullups then run over to picnic tables and do (10) jump ups, run back to pull ups.
(2) pullups, (9) jump ups
…up to (10) pullups down to (1) jumpup.
Instead, we launched right into a Coach Toxey inspired painfest. (Coach was YHC’s baseball coach at SVHS)
2 stations just shy of 90 feet apart…
Sprint to 1st, then (12) Carolina dry docks.
Karaoke back to 2nd, then (12) crow pushups – regular merkin but as you go down you bring your knee around to your elbow, as you go back up, take your foot back. Alternate sides 6 x for a total of (12).
Sprint back to 1st then (12) merkins (not the “American” as YHC was graciously reminded by the PAX).
Karaoke back to 2nd (facing opposite direction) and do (12) Madagascar macaroons or something. Start in plank, down on your elbows and back up = 1 rep.
Take a quick breather
Rinse and repeat, but instead of karaokes, squat down and side shuffle, and drop the reps down to (10)
6 MOM – duck, duck, goose style. Circle up at station 1 and on your six. 1st man calls out some ab work and sprints to station 2 and back while the PAX grunts it out.
good times with Dollys, Flutter Kicks, Freddy Mercury’s, Back Scratchers, V-tucks, LBC’s, Protractor @10 degrees above horizontal (Thank you Swiss!).
Mosey back to the shovel flag and burpees on your own till the PAX is assembled.
8 brave men arrived at Outland with determination in their eyes. Believe it or not, YHC aka The Late Show was one of the first to arrive, though true to name, the last to be ready to roll. It does, indeed, take time to load up the cargo pockets.
After the warmup appetizer, the main pain course was quickly served up. Fried chicken legs (btw nice shorts Zip) and flapjacks were on the menu at Horse Head’s Hair Burner Cafe. O2 deprivation for the entire crew was evident, but the PAX powered through with determination.
The volume of mumble chatter picked up as we cruised to the elementary playground. But Dead Silence fell over the PAX as we stopped 1/2 way for the mtn climber & side plank break. Bodily harm to YHC’s wristwatch was suggested as the seconds ticked away and arms and abs felt the burn.
After serving up a playground sampler platter of crow, duck, and goose the PAX was full and ready to run it off as we moseyed back to the flag for announcements and prayer.
Reminder that next Saturday we host a little throw down for mud runners, and thanks CT for praying us up.
On behalf of myself and HH, thank you for the privilege to Q.
Respectfully (and actually on time) submitted,
The Late Show.
