Speak for Yourself

Speak for Yourself

It’s hard to get it up – Anonymous

I don’t have trouble getting it up – speak for yourself – Snooka

I don’t get no respect – Rodney Dangerfield (and YHC)

I haven’t spoken to my wife in years. I didn’t want to interrupt her. Rodney Dangerfield and Snooka

The Fishing Hole is at CCHS on Thursday morning but old men and their stories of big feats showed up on this Friday morning. YHC noted how my soccer arms are not conducive to pull ups and several PAX took it as an opportunity to brag about their manhood.

The Thang:

COP – SSH x20, Merkins x10, Mtn Climbers x15, Jumping lunges x10, Squats with jump up x10

Mosey over to lane beside football field for the beast – 6 trips down and back with 6 stops to perform 6 of called exercise

  • Squats
  • Merkins
  • LBC’s
  • Mtn Climbers
  • Imperial walkers
  • Burbees (of course)

Mosey over to rock pile across the road and grab a rock (Champagne is once again an over achiever) for a series of exercises

  • Curls x20
  • Skull Crushers x15
  • Curls x20
  • Skull Crushers x15
  • Lunge walk with push press
  • Squats (rock should touch the ground)
  • Side lunges
  • Shelf Stackers – 10 each side

Mosey back to the school for a few sets of incline merkins and pull ups. This is where Mermaid noticed my need to use a little body motion to “get up” toward the end of the pull up set. Snooka smartly jumped in to disassociate himself from YHC

Run up far right stairs to level 4, down stairs in middle to bottom, and up to level four on far left stairs.

Partner work – P1 sprints down half way of deck and P2 performs called exercise. Flapjack after P1 gets back. We did peoples chair, decline merkins, LBC’s and burpees

Down the stairs and over to brick yard for descending ladder of 20, 15, 10 step ups and dips.

Mosey back to launch point and finish with squats

NM – The banter was constant. Just like Sondland, I “believe” there were impeachable offenses committed in the discussions but I didn’t hear all of the conversations so its not admissible. Clover was discussing sci fi movies (I think) while Snooka made sure everyone knows his performance at home is just as strong as at the workout. That was his claim and it probably is impeachable.

Getting older is a hurdle to accleration. I am no longer able to push the PAX like I once did and thus I have had to learn to accept this and push to dish out the hardest workout I can even if its not the same. The workout is a chance to get better no matter what age. We can make small positive changes in our life each day until they become habits. Then make another small change until it becomes a habit. Find a blade to help with accountability – its hard to accelerate if you don’t have someone pushing you. New Years Resolutions often fail because the change is too drastic to become a habit. Small changes (bricks per Dredd) will allow you to build up guard rails over time. Then you are prepared to accelerate and in turn you can help others accelerate. Good read in Q Source on this – . https://f3nation.com/2018/05/13/positive-habit-transfer-q2-4-2/

Announcements – Check the web site/ or Slack for holiday week workouts/convergences. No Centurion next Friday at there is convergence at Cerebrus

As always, I am blessed to be among such fine men that help me push myself and get better.

Solid beatdown Chelms. Snuka doesn’t have a ton to say at workouts, which made that little zinger even better. Well played Snuka.

Good to have Clover and Abacus back out at Centurion. Been a while. Scabby was a minute or two late, but he ran in, so no foul there. Have a great weekend all.

Oh, and the exchange was more like this:

Mermaid: You using a little wave action on those pull ups I see.
Anonymous: When you get to be my age, it’s harder to get it up.
Snuka: Hey, speak for yourself (perfectly timed).

And, for the record, Snuka is a few years older than Anonymous.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
