NOTE: YHC sent pre-blast that we would experiment with new exercises that were conjured up while Peaches was DR. Despire the warning, these men attended BC anyway. (New exercises denoted with *)
Conditions: Clear & cold but not too cold in the mid-30s
COP: Warm-up: SSH ICx25 with increasing tempo, TTT x 15, DQ x 15 (Flo flew in just in time to plant the flag)
Divide PAX into odd-even with odd on one side of sidewalk & even on other.
– Single suicide run approx 25 yds. Odd-even groups in opposite directions.
Mosey to retrieve 2 blocks & return to assigned position at sidewalk.
Block exercises were done as follows with suicide sprints between each:
= Block sit-up w/ OHP combo, – * Sledgehammer abs (A twisting version of the WW1 sit-up) followed by seated curls on Q, – * Double block flys on Q followed by * Lawnmowers squared (Lawnmower pulls using TWO block at the same time in each hand), – * Nut Cracker (block squat & upright row combo).
Then the Merkin Conveyor … PAX were arm length abrest with block in front of toes. 4 Hi-Lo merkins with left hand on block. Then switch hands for 4 more – PAX side crawled to left to next man’s block to repeat merkins. The man on extreme left had no block so he bear crawled down to the empty block to rejoin the merkin conveyor. Continued until all men bear crawled.
Repeated several exercises until time called.
Mary: : 4ct Flutters x 25, Beached Whale (aka Mosquito Slappers) x 25, 4ct Bicycle Hammers x15. WW1 sit-ups x15
Numberama: Started with 10. Grew to 13 total at Thang time
Namerama: Matlock, 50/50, What?, Smokey, Sugar Mountain, Flo, Pretzel, Probie, M&M, Too Much, Fannie Pack, Milton Peaches (Respect)
Pledge and COT – Done
Devo: Luke 12:7 “the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.”
Moleskin: Some exercises were brand-spanking new while other were combos of existing ones. This caused some mumble chatter and even a few harsh words as the work began. The PAX seemed to ‘enjoy’ the new movements. Nothing but grunts were heard as the merkin conveyor whipped but on the chest & shoulders. YHC’s fist Q at Seismic was not a disappointment. These guys are awesome!
