Family Feud Avoided

Six men showed up (Iron Horse and Semi Gloss squealing tires in the parking lot to make it almost on time) for YHC’s first Q at Day Zero.   Luckily for me, Abacus stepped in and saved me from double booking at The Rock and Day Zero due to equipment malfunction (no way it was user error).   Perfect morning to mix it up.

The Thang:

Jog around soccer fields before COP at basketball court:

SSHx20, Explosive merkins X10, jumping lunges X15, mountain climbers X15

Mosey thru the woods to shopping center for a three sets of four corners on roads around the shopping center. Ten of called exercise at each corner

  • Round 1 – Squats
  • Round 2 – Explosive merkins
  • Round 3 – Jumping lunges

Mosey back to front of school for three rounds of dips, step ups, decline merkins (10, 15, 20).  Over to wall for some balls to the wall merkins.  Audible after 1 round due to complaints.

Run around school to the rock pile and grab a lifting rock.

  • Three sets of exercises with sprint out to soccer nets (close, medium and far) in between sets –  10 curls, 10 push presses, 10 lateral extensions
  • Three sets of goblet squats (10, 15, 20) with called exercise in between.  Round 1 – bear crawl, Round 2 – Wheel barrow, Round 3 – broad jumps
  • Repeat first set with curls, push presses, and lateral extensions with sprints in between

Jog around soccer field back to b-ball court for some mary (flutter, dolly, other stuff).   Jog to wall nearby for jump up ladder.   Jump on top of wall and do jump squats (1 to 10).  Jog back around the field and stop briefly for 10 pull ups.  Finish at basketball court with jumping lunges and ski jumps before calling it a day.

Naked Moleskin:

Thanks to Abacus for stepping in after my agent double booked me.   Luckily the two PAX didn’t cross paths and there was no family feud. Pretty sure Day Zero was way harder.

Small but talkative group this am.  YHC thinks we mixed it pretty well as I’m feeling it today.   Mix of old and new as we had three Respects and three Hates.  Pretty sure Respects won.

Well played Chelms! Really enjoyed the variety and constant movement (actually it kind of sucked at the time). Maybe next time Swede will find a bigger rock next time #boulder

Sorry not sorry I missed this one. Sounded awful. I definitely made out better by running that half marathon. Thanks for stepping in, Chelms. You need to make DZ a regular stop in your rotation!

Great beatdown Chelms, especially on the legs. I damn near lost my tennis match just after due to cramping in my calves. Thankfully an overdose of water helped me make it through but my legs still hurt today. That wall/jump squat combo will be replayed this coming Monday at Split Endz !

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
