Intro: Green Bag’s post earlier this week about workouts that looked better on paper than in execution, inspired YHC to add to the list of bad decisions. When the PAX arrived, they were instructed to secure a zip-tie to their wrist. Nobody asked why, and YHC offered no explanation. 11 men tested their boundaries this morning.
Disclaimer: No FNG’s, although Labowski is only on BC #3.
Warmup: Burpee x1 (IC and slow so as to resemble a stretch), tempo merkin x15, tempo WW1 x10, hit-its, gorilla shuffle burpees x10, jail break around the triangle.
Thang: YHC zip-tied each man’s wrist to a rope that had been woven under, through, around, and over all of the picnic tables under the pavilion (about 125′). Follow the rope to the end, where there’s a pair of wire cutters, then go grab a block and meet at the flag.
Cussack block for 60 seconds, OHP x15, Cussack block for 30 seconds, OHP x10.
Curls for the girls: 1/2 way up x20, 1/2 way to full up x20, full range x10.
Calf raises x60, squats w/ blocks x20, Al Gore.
Ring of Fire merkins x22.
Cussack blocks back to pile.
Mary: Boat/canoe, LBC’s, low plank.
Numberama, Namerama, Pledge, Announcements, Prayer Requests:
Devo: Reach out to a brother to encourage him today.
Moleskin: The BB title wrote itself when someone suggested that a bunch of dudes bound to a rope with zip-ties and crawling on the ground resembled 50 Shades of Grey. YHC is praying that The Ponds installed security cameras in the pavilion as part of their recent renovation. Someone would be entertained watching the playback.
F3 is a trusting group, but of course the Marine had a contingency plan in case the experiment went sideways.
I wonder if Labowski will show for BC #4?
