Exercises That Belong to the Gloom

Now that the holidays have ended and the convergences have gone away, Kevlar was back on the normal schedule. Every workout has its own unique personality and the PAX at Kevlar definitely expect a strenuous beatdown mixed with some type of frivolity each and every Friday. Bulldog handed me the keys to the Q and away we went:

  • Warmup mosey around high school and middle school parking lots with a flyby of the admin building, ending up back in the middle school parking lot.
  • COP
    • merkins x25
    • imperial walkers x20
    • merkins x20
    • mountain climbers x20
    • merkins x20
    • peter parkers x20
    • 8-count bodybuilders x10
  • Divide up into 2 groups (groups 1 and 2) and partner up (partners a and b) within the group:
    • Round 1:
      • Group 1: Partner 1 runs to left-side stairs, touches door at top, runs back while Partner 2 does step-ups on covered benches. Partners flapjack.
      • Group 2: Partner 1 runs to right-side stairs, touches door at top, runs back while Partner 2 does derkins and dips on uncovered benches. Partners flapjack.
      • Groups 1 and 2 Flapjack.
    • Round 2:
      • Group 1: Partner 1 runs to left-side stairs, touches door at top, runs back while Partner 2 does single-leg squats on covered benches. Partners flapjack.
      • Group 2: Partner 1 runs to right-side stairs, touches door at top, runs back while Partner 2 does carolina dry docks and incline merkins on uncovered benches. Partners flapjack.
      • Groups 1 and 2 Flapjack.
  • Walk/Mosey/Run to upper parking lot for a true 6MOM:
    • typical mary stuff: LBCs/flutters/superman/plank/reverse plank/backscratcher/dollies
  • Pick a parking spot at base of hill. Proceed to “the Finisher”:
    • Sprint up hill / 10 merkins at top / mosey back down
    • Bear-crawl up hill / 10 merkins at top / mosey backdown
    • Sprint up hill / 10 merkins at top / mosey back down
    • Broad jump up hill / 10 monkeyhumpers at top / mosey back down
    • Sprint up hill / 10 monkeyhumpers at top / mosey back down
    • Broad jump up hill / 10 merkins at top / mosey back down
    • Sprint up hill / 10 merkins at top / mosey back down
  • Run home
  • COT

Moleskine:

  • Fun times at Kevlar today. Friendly mumblechatter going during most of workout – except for the running and the sprints, which was at least half the time… Folks must have been excited to see each other again. Felt like a mini-family reunion. Good to see Pickle back from his semester at Clemson. Good also to see O’Tannenbaum at Kevlar. FNG to Kevlar, even though it has met at his church every Friday for the last couple years…
  • Been a while since we did the 8-count bodybuilders. Now I know why. #Qsmoker
  • Everyone seemed to be doing well on the stair runs, but special props to Busch for pushing some of us (me) to go faster. If I’m going to be any stronger/faster/better in 2015, gotta prepare to be a little uncomfortable. Thankful for the push in that direction.
  • Been a while since we’ve done a full 6MOM. Now I know why. #sorebelly #hurtstosit #dontmakemelaugh
  • As we lined up for The Finisher (appropriately named, Bulldog) I disclosed that this part of the workout was something I had seen someone do at the park last week. Yes, that someone may have been female. But in my defense, (a) I was at the park with my family, and (b) it was my M who suggested I bring the workout to the guys on Friday morning. And no, the someone-who-may-have-been-female did not do any monkeyhumpers. There are are just some things that should never leave the gloom.
  • Or be done when a car is passing by at 0610…

Good Q Young Love. Horsead and I were trying to imagine what female in her right mind would do solo bear crawls and monkey humpers at a public park. Thanks for clarifying your story #parkranger
