We Can’t Stop

We Can’t Stop

22 strong men were looking to get their core ready for summer trunk season.  We didn’t have to go far to get in a good workout.  Here’s how it went down.

Mosey to some random parking lot of good size and circle up.  YHC feels comfortable under the bright lights of parking lots.  Thanks Maul.

  • 30 Seal Jacks
  • 30 backward lunges
  • 20 slow dips arms stretched out in front of you
  • 20 slow and hold Spiderman merkins.  (Crowd pleaser)

Grab a partner you are unfamiliar with and line up facing each other.

  • 30 hand slap merkins
  • 20 jump tucks – flapjack
  • 20 high knees – flapjack
  • Good run around the entire lot (some mighty ones tried cutting corners)
  • 20 Decline merkin partner plank
  • Run around and stop at bottom of lot

Partner wheelbarrows halfway up the parking lot then flapjack. Modify bear crawl or lunge walk.

Plank work at the top of the hill.

Partner 1 runs to the bottom of the hill, Partner 2 man maker merkins. Team goal of 50.

Partner 1 runs around the lot, Partner 2 burpees x3 chase down Partner 1.  Team goal of 50.

MARY time, but not the usual routine:

  • 30 flutter
  • Side elbow plank on the left :30 (crowd pleaser)
  • Side elbow plank on the right :30 (crowd pleaser)
  • Left :30 (crowd pleaser)
  • Right :30 (crowd pleaser)
  • Elbow plank :30 (crowd pleaser)
  • 20 JLos (YHC pleaser)
  • Elbow plank :30 (crowd pleaser)

Mosey back for COT

It’s always an honor to take the reins of Bagpipe.  The number of fellas continues to grow as spring approaches.  I called out Wing(Space)Man on twitter for his regular last minute fly ins, but it should be noted he arrived with a good 5 minutes to spare.

Goal today was to after it early and never let up.  I avoided the grounds of the corporate park and took the crowd to a nearby parking lot.  No 10 counts or slow moseys, just hard work.

The partner portion seemed to be a favorite.  It’s always good to share in the pain with a fellow F3er all up in your space.  My partner Long Distance was a beast the whole time.  He kept urging me to push him faster during the wheelbarrow races.   He also took us out with a great prayer.

Seems the Mary change up had the desired effect on the group.  We only did one of the usual ab exercises in an effort by YHC to confuse our bodies.  Wouldn’t want them getting used to the flutter/dolly routine.  It was a tough core group of exercises and there was zero rest between each of them.

Welcome back to The Worm after spending a couple of weeks on IR.

I was particularly impressed with LD’s prayer to send us out.

Aye! Great to have The Worm back. Not sure if today’s shoulder smoker was the best choice to come back on, but if you can make it through that, you are good to go.

Less than three weeks, and the backpack comes off. What a great day that will be!

Great workout MC! If muscle confusion was the goal, mission accomplished. My rear thought it really did belong to J-Lo for a minute there.

I already commented on twitter that it was a great Q, but in under 140 characters I could not comment on the softness of the cadence count. I am not sure what you were saving the extra breath for? Luckily you gave good Demo’s because no one heard you.

Lots of pain, we’ll played today!

Soft cadence indeed. Great Q though! I am still sore from a Tiger Rag beat down at the Rock and it seems now the pain will continue. Much appreciated.

Careful boys, you’ll end up in puffy shirts. #Lowtalker

I guess having Run Stopper yell at the pax at DMZ yesterday, made me more sensitive to the overall volume.
