Intro: 15 hard-chargers did not let the heat scare them away from an afternoon workout at Accelerator. For some reason, YHC always tries to make his workouts at Accelerator equal parts fun and beatdown. Maybe it’s because of the heat. Maybe it’s because some of the guys are doubling down from morning workouts. Maybe it’s because Accelerator just has that fun culture.
Disclaimer: No FNG’s, but given anyway.
Warmup: Arm circles (until the complaints start, then some more arm circles), Carolina Dry Docks x15, Dying Cockroach x20 (IC)
Thang: With half the PAX lined up on the Armory wall, the other half paired up in front of them for a Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament. Do an exercise, then throw a rock, paper, or scissors. A tie will result in more reps. The loser will run to the cage to retrieve a block, and Cussack back. The winner will plank until the six is in.
Round #1 – hand-slap merkins x15
Round #2 – squats x20
Round #3 – tricep extensions x15
Round #4 – upright row x20
Round #5 – single arm curls (block in each hand) x8
After 5 rounds of RPS’s, line up the 33 blocks in the middle of the AO, half down, half up. This game is called, surprisingly, “Up/Down”. Team 1’s goal is to lay all of the blocks down. Team 2’s goal is to stand all of the blocks up. Do 5 burpees, then sprint to move a block. The team with the most blocks standing or laying down after 5 minutes wins. The final score was 18-15. Losers stow all of the blocks while the winners relax in the shade.
Next, pair-up one winner with one loser. As a team, do 50 flutter kicks, 40 merkins, and 30 pullups.
Mary: WW1 situps x20, 100’s
Pledge, Numberama, Namerama, Announcements, Prayer Requests:
Devo: Cousin recounted the story of Abraham and God asking him to sacrifice Isaac. Ultimately, God sacrificed His son for us. Our service to God should not be considered a sacrifice, but rather, “I GET to serve God.”
