Our new pandemic protocols require us to split up into groups 10 or less. Which means the Q1 has the
pleasure uneasyness of sharing his Winkie ahead of time with another man Q2. All these feelings started to overcome me earlier in the week when JWoww reached out asking what I had in mind. Would it be long enough? Would it be hard enough? Would he laugh when he saw it? What if he was expecting 4 and I only gave him 3.0 (miles)? Ok, enough double entendres.
I arrive early to see a group of gazelles heading out. Damn it, did I screw up the start time? Nope, they are off to 521 with a circle back from Rubbermaid – wait what? 521? What the hell?! Get the music going (and start catching hell from Rubbermaid…checks group me….and still catching hell from Rubbermaid). See JWoww and inform him that I have audibled the exercise for the second time (first time to make it harder, second time to adjust it slightly
softer easier but still harder that originally planned.) JWoww asks what I was planning to do as the warm up as it looked to him I was going straight into exercises…oh no, there is a warm up, yup that’s it. Turnbuckle walks up out of nowhere already sweaty and breathing hard. “TB, where the hell did you come from?”. “Oh, I’ve already got 1.5 miles in this morning. Had planned to do three before joining you guys” – TB. Well ok then, good job. Other pax started sprinkling in, but it was apparent as we got closer and closer to start that we wouldn’t hit the 10 pax needed to split. JWoww reluctantly put his phone away and I gave the DICCS1010 speech. Off we go.
Run to school and Yo-Yo back to the 6 until everyone is at the school. Circle up for deconstructed burpees (along with audible groans from Popeye – he may have done a few of these with me during our quarantine workouts). 10 Squats, 10 Merkins, 10 In/outs, and 10 Bobby Hurleys. I then passed it to my left to Rubbermaid for 9 each. Around we went 8, 7, 6. We get to 5 and TB attempts to pass it on to Popeye. Oh no. I stopped that idea right in its tracks. TB – do 5, and he did. Quite well I might add. With 9 in the group we got down to 2 and then I asked everyone to do one final burpee on there own to close us out.
Mosey towards school entrance for a slight modification (two times apparently if you refer to earlier in the BB) of progressive 4 corners (5 corners for JWoww cause he’s fast). At Corner 1 do 10 Baryshnikov right leg and 10 Baryshnikov left leg (yes I had to google how to spell his name). For those wondering, that is a front lunge, then hop into a back lunge keeping one foot planted (so not a Mary Catherine). Once Corner 1 is done run to Corner 2 and repeat. Run back to Corner 1 again for Baryshnikov’s then out to Corner 3. Keep that pace doing the exercise at the next corner and then again at the starting point (corner 1). Everyone got in 4 corners except JWoww. He was so far ahead I told him to do Corner 5, but I saved him the long run back.
Mosey to bus lot and line up on the curb for Suicides (I hate this name, isn’t there a better name for this?). At the curb do 10 T Merkins. At the different points to 10 In/Outs. The 4 points were the 3 basketball goals and the light at the end of the parking lot. JWoww once again killing it so I made him do an extra.
Quick recovery lap around the parking lot and find your sweat pile again for another suicide. This time with 20 T Delts on the curb and 10 superman’s on the out. T Delt is the bottom half of a T Merkin. Lay on the ground, hands out and pinch shoulder blades together. This one got the rear delts burning…mission accomplished.
Mosey to Rock Pile and grab lifting rock.
Meet on the curb. Rubbermaid reminds me we have less than 2 minutes (yes I know, I have a watch too). With only 1.5 gazelles in our midst, I had to reassign Gazelles today. I had the Clydesdales sprint back to Cot with about a 5 second head start. If Rudy, JWoww, Rubbermaid, or myself caught anyone, we all had 10 burpees to do. It came down to me and Chainsaw. I was on his heels the entire time and
let off the gas as Cot was in site because I was beat and didn’t want to do burpees he found an extra gear to beat me.
