No SF was planted…pretty sure Skunkworks doesn’t have one…Stone Cold took it with him to Joust. Harley – today would have been a good day for the SF on Election Day. #merica But I digress, sort of.
24 hardy lads voted to post at Skunkworks this morning, and it went a little something like this….
Grab your KB (or 2 if you’re Busch, Header?, others?) and head over to the church lots.
SSH x 18
Merkin x 18
IW x 18
1/2 the pax leave KB in COP lot, other 1/2 take their KB to adjacent lot
1. Run 1/3 Mile? (no idea how long the run was frankly) around church
2. 18 2-handed swings
3. Hairburners with 25, 35 or 45 lb. plate – 35 yards? down & back
4. 18 goblet squats
Rinse & Repeat 4x – using different KB each time at stations 2 & 4
Plankorama mixing in some Southern Gentleman, Yankee Aggressor, Christian Laettner (always a “Hate” except for Harley), 6 inches, etc.
Grab a KB, not necessarily your own, and double-time it back to small field next to the high school
Circle up for some more work but not in the order listed below:
Louganis w/KB x 18
LBC x 18
Upright Row w/KB x 13
One-legged Dolly R x 9; One-legged Dolly L x 9
Overhead Press w/KB x 18
Pass KB to the left
Renegade Row w/KB x 9R then x9L
Pass KB to the left
Two-handed Swing x 18
CCV (of course) x 18
Ye Olde Moleskine:
Always a blast to be with the pax at Skunkworks…perhaps the best mumblechatter in all of Area 51. Smack talk, false bravado, hazing….love it! That being said, Semi-Gloss complimenting my beard on more than one occasion was a little unsettling. #creepybigshirtlessdude
Bananas was happy when Night Court wrested the LIFO title from him this morning just as we were starting COP. UnionSkunk coming soon?
Some strong work being put in out there for sure. More running than normal Skunkworks? Perhaps. Navigating the polling place workers, signs, etc. in front of the church added a challenge. #merica
Heard some “haven’t done hairburners in a long time” comments out there. They’re unsavory, to be sure, but for those who went the distance with them – you got your money’s worth. When I collected them after the workout, it was amazing all the gravel, rocks and even a cap to a plastic bottle. How in the world did that cap make it’s way through the hole in the plate?! Did someone eat some asphalt and I didn’t hear about it?
When Horsehead pulled his lighter KB out of his truck tool box, complaining about shoulder pain, I didn’t have the heart to tell him it didn’t matter as we would be sharing KBs at the stations and the work at the end…though he may have ended up with smaller KBs than his own every time. #wheresmychristmasornament
High Tide exclaimed at one point that he was looking for a key chain in lieu of a 50 lb. KB – that was a new one to me…and good humor.
Enjoyed it fellas. Always a good time at das Stinktier!
