Under construction

Cone of Silence

13 men awoke to a pleasantly warm morning to get after it on the second day of 2015. The school is nice enough to be building us a parking deck but for now the construction is just an obstacle to get around. Anyway, we managed. Here’s what we did.

The thang

Quick up-and-back from the small parking lot to the road. #uturn

Circle up for a push-o-rama edition of a COP:
Merkins x 15
SSH x 20
Merkins x 12
Copperhead squat x 20
Merkins x 9
Mountain climbers x 20
Merkins x 6
Carolina Dry Docks x 10
Merkins x 3

Parnter up and mosey over to the rockpile to find a worthy stone.
Partner A runs up hill to the road and back
Partner B performs called exercise: curls, overhead press, squat.
Some planks worked in

Say goodbye to our little friends and mosey to the parking lot
Bear crawl down, run back
Crab walk down, run back
Backwards bear crawl down (#crowdpleaser), run back
Reverse crab walk down, run back
Sprint down, run back x 2

Mosey up to the front of the school and grab some bench
Step ups x 10, Dips x 15
Rinse and repeat for three sets total

Mosey back to the parking lot for EXACTLY six minutes of Mary:
Dolly x 20 — Hold it — low slow flutter x 10
Freddy mercury x 20
LBC x 20
Rosalita x 20


Some real Larry Birds out there. Props to Chelms, Hops and Mermaid (and others I only saw the back of) for beasting it out there. And big ups to Margo who runs 1+ miles each way to and from the workout.

Announcements: Joe Davis run, Unbroken movie coming up, Bring your FNGs and Kotters to Ascent on Saturday

Thanks for letting me Q my first workout in the Southlands.

It just came to me – If Chelms grew his hair a little more, he would actually LOOK like Larry Bird, too.

I’m slow but not that slow.
Dear Abbey – next time you need to try harder to lose the LIFO’s (Hops).

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
