Now you prepare that Fetzer valve with some 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads.

I’m tired of coming up with creative workout titles. I’m switching to all Chevy Chase quotes.

17 men gathered at OP for the weekly battle against the Hydra. Properly disclaimed, we proceeded thusly:

Mosey to the field (I disclosed in the pre tweet that my foot hurt. So if you were looking for a lot of running, our 50 yard warmup run should’ve squelched those dreams.)
SSH, IW, Peter Parker, Slow Squat x 20

Gather on one end line. Do the called exercise halfway down the field, then jog the rest of the way to the other end. High knees, butt kickers, carioca both ways, bear crawl, crab walk.

Back on the end line for a pyramid. Run to the other end and do 5x HR Merkins, jump squats, CDDs and lunges. Back to the other side for 10x. Then 15x, 20x, 15x, 10x, 5x.

Circle up in the middle for Ring of Fire. Hold plank (regular and elbow) while members of the PAX take turns running around the outside of the circle until all have gone.

Mosey to the concession area for an abbreviated pyramid. Select a bench. Do 5x jump ups, incline merkins, dips, derkins. Run to the bullpen net (50 yards) and back. Repeat with 10x, 15x, 10x.

Mosey back to the field. Gather on the end line. Do the called Mary exercise, in cadence, then AYG to the other end line for the next exercise. Flutter, Dolly, Rosalita, Russian Twist, Protractor, Peter Parker.


Well that was fun. With a bad wheel, I had to dial back the running that I usually rely on to keep the heart rate up.
Good work by everyone out there. Hopper was killing it on the first pyramid. It was good to see Lost Weekend back out there after a long recovery from an injury. Runstopper brought the tights out again despite the balmy 60 degrees at go time. FNG Velvet got it done. Great first workout!

Keep bringing shoes. We have some work to do to reach the Area 51 goal of 500.
Christmas Party is on 12/6. Watch for preblast soon.
Specialty workouts coming up – The Brave is doing the Army Ranger test tomorrow. It sounds terrible. Look it up. There is a Marine Corps workout at AG on Saturday. See website for details.

No mention of 30 weigh ball bearings? Disappointing.

It’s all ball bearings these days.

Gummy you could have called it plank until your shoulders explode or your arms fall off! That was a good one and the Mens Health life expectancy test banter was fun. I truly thought this seemed like a 60-minute workout. Hey great to see Brownie from my hood show up at hydra. He has been driving to metro without knowledge of OP. Glad to reach you by HOA email this past week. Also glad we found your keys this morning.

Great Q Gummy. Truly hydra worthy!

Next up is Brown.
