In keeping with the Bushwood golf club theme and the location being MES, this morning’s workout incorporated elements of both.  All exercises were either 9 or 18 reps (golf) and the primary focus was learning how to spell (elementary school).

Warm Up:

  • 18 Side Straddle Hops
  • 9 Abe Vigodas
  • 9 Imperial Walkers
  • 9 Merkins

The Thang

Mosey from COT over to main school parking lot where the Bushwood Alphabet board and the Caddyshack character names were waiting for us. Each letter of the Bushwood Alphabet had a corresponding exercise and we endeavored to spell as many Character’s names as possible by doing the exercise next to each letter.

Que music on the speaker that was waiting there for us as well, which began with theme from Caddyshack, then Lunatic Fringe, Fat Bottomed Girls, and so on..

In order to get the PAX in the right frame of mind, we began by spelling out BUSHWOOD, which involved 18 reps of the following exercises:

B: Merkins

U: Side Straddle Hops

S: Mountain Climbers

H: Speed Skaters

W: Monkey Humpers

O: Squats

O: Squats

D: Lunges

We then ran through the school playground and around the track.  The sprinklers were on, so it was a nice Waterboy touch, if I do say so myself…  After the run around we all grabbed a rock and proceeded back to the workout area.

We then spelled out the name of the golf Zen master who was blessed by the Dali Lama, Ty Webb, and everyone’s favorite grounds keeper, Carl Spackler.

Took a pause from the exercises and my cadence calls and ran a set of Stingers, which is what I grew up knowing as suicides (high school mascot was a scorpion).

Back to names, spelling out the pain in the ass, puke through the sunroof, Spaulding and finishing up with the object of every young boy’s desire, Lacey Underall.

Mosey back to COT with the boards and speaker in hand, music playing loud for all to have a strong finish.

Back at COT, kept with the team effort approach.  One Star led a set of 18 J Lo’s with pickle pounders, Orchid called out 18 Moroccan Night Clubs, and we wrapped up with Flo leading 18 final Merkins.

One Star, Tanyatine, Orchid, and I went for coffee afterward.  Encourage others to join in the future, as that’s a nice 20 min of generally good conversation.

I enjoyed my first Q, hoping it wasn’t too out there…
