11 pax, including one FNG, ventured out into the cool, dew covered fields of Basecamp to start their week off right with a moderate downPAINment. Here’s how they Rocked It:
Mosey to the lower ball fields, into the outfield for COP
Mosey to rock pile for hand-sized rock (i.e. you can easily handle it with one hand) and return to the outfield
Rockin’ the Outfield
(brief demonstration of the sequence for a Turkish Getup)
Mosey with your rock to the bleachers
Rockin’ the Bleachers
Mosey to outfield with rock, circle up and drop rock
Still Rockin, without the Rock
Return rock to pile and mosey to track
Mosey to parking lot and circle up for Mary
Great work by the pax today, with some new moves for Basecamp.
Special welcome to FNG Morning Star, who was “EH’d” by a neighbor’s wife and looked us up on the website to find us on his own! Glad to have you out this morning, and welcome to the Pax. Keep coming out and you’ll notice a difference.
T-claps to Fireman Ed for grinding out the workout this morning. FE survived the Mud Run unscathed, only to injure his thumb yesterday playing soccer, reportedly while flopping. Hope it gets better soon – see a Dr?
So, YHC did some recon on Saturday in hopes of finding the long rumored trail between S CLT Middle and Davies Park for a short mosey over for some pullups, etc on the playground. No such luck in finding the trail, but a couple of rock piles were discovered. The Weinke was changed and those rocks were put to good use instead.
Hope you all enjoyed the Rock Getups – something new for Basecamp and a mild introduction to getups, a great overall body conditioner. The Rock Lunges is another story, in that it was a looong walk from centerfield to the right field fence. #ImGonnaWalkFunnyTomorrow
Marketing note: if you like the rocks or the getups or dislike running, give Meathead a try on Thursdays. We lift heavy things and don’t run very much. #0.0
Thanks for the opportunity to lead today. Always an honor.
