SHIELD LOCKS and dissing Spiderman

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:
PAX: Classified Slippy AlrightAlright Big Tex Icebox Meatball Siesta Jennay Chase (FNG)
QIC: PowPow

AO: Lindsley Park
F3 DISCLAIMER & WELCOME: Given

WARM-O-RAMA:
See below

THA THANG:
Circle of Pain at the Pavilion, Q leads PAX through the exercises below. After each set the PAX run the smaller loop path from the pavilion around the playground and back to the pavilion.  Beginning with the 2nd run (after the Hillbillies) 2 PAX stay at pavilion to perform sandbag deadlifts (120#) – 5 reps then switch alternating while rest of PAX run. Each pair of PAX did the deadlifts twice.

SSH x 20 DC
Hillbillies x 20 DC
ISTs x 20 DC
Eagle wings x 20 IC
Lunges x 20 IC
Derkins x 20 IC

LBCs x 20 DC
One legged Burpee x 20 OYO
Carolina Dry Dock x 20 IC
Knee to elbow x 20 DC
Superman x 20 IC

MARY:
WWI sit-ups x 10 DC
Jane Fonda’s x 10 / leg
Crab cakes x 20 DC
LBCs x 20 DC
Flutter kicks x 10 DC
Freddie Mercury x 12 DC

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC’s typical blend of expressing gratitude and a charge to the PAX to go out and get after it and accelerate their relationships. Capped off with an enthusiastic “Kobe!” from Alright Alright

MOLESKIN:
Lots of mummblechatter and high levels of 2nd F (or put another way, lots of Alright Alright talking and the rest of the PAX reacting) given the structure of the workout. Chase, the FNG that Jennay brought, did great, YHC is looking forward to seeing him again. Classified helpfully gave PAX guidance on deadlift form (and carried the sandbag back to YHC’s car after the workout, thanks brother!).

AA mostly gave YHC a pass with the Eagle Wings exercise but lost his mind when YHC called Peter Parkers “Knee to Elbow” in order to suit my spelling needs (spelling SHIELD LOCKS), then YHC dropping Supermans right after the “disrespect” to Spiderman just added to the drama. YHC would have loved to “argue” with AA over these unforgiveable violations of protocol, but was occupied counting cadence. The rest of the PAX really failed to come to YHC’s defense in any meaningful way…YHC will chalk that up a failure of his leadership.

The point of the workout was to acknowledge Shield Lock Week here in Dallas but also to incorporate some heavier lifting. Coupons are good, but at 35 pounds they’re not really gonna build much strength/power when it comes to certain movements (squats and deadlifts for example).  Hence the 120 pound sandbag deadlifts.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Carry the Load- this Sunday 5/30 – Monday 5/31
Memorial Day Flag planting and removal on 6/5 –  leading this
F3 Bingo launching on 6/1

MOLESKIN:
Big crowd for MRM, including 4 pups (Larry, Green, Maverick/F3 Goose and Stingray‘s pup whose name escapes me). Good mumble chatter amongst the group, including the first day away from the 2.0 for Alright Alright‘s M, moving and all that fun, Hilton Head and I’m sure other stuff I missed as Larry was much more interested in the smells than keeping up with the other ruckers. A lot of discussion about poor Green and how he would probably crush the DT route since he was ready to be let loose
 
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
  1. Carry the Load Next Weekend – Lots of open spots!
  2. Broga the weekend after (June 5th). M’s and 2.0s welcome!

Lindsley Ladder

#backblast #lindsleywarriors #lindsleyladders

PowPow Siesta AlrightAlright Dirtbag Meatball sound machine Dirtbag’s Brother from Another Mother (FNG) joined YHC for the unveiling of Lindsley Ladders

Dirtbag knew it was serious when we walked over to the park together (safety in numbers) when I didn’t have the speaker

After a quick warmup we went to the corner of Lindsley and Tenison Memorial and did a Lindsley Ladder, run up one block for 50 merkins, run back one block for 10 LBC’s, then 40-20, 30-30, 20-40, and 10-50. YHC was accused of doing my best F150 impression and AlrightAlright fell behind Meatball’s Italian merkins and couldn’t recover from the deficits after the first 50 merkins. Might need to do this for time and make it a #benchmark

Then we went back to the corner of Lindsley and Tenison Memorial and did a suicide down Tenison Memorial, running to each house on the street and back, doing squats when we got back starting at 10 and increasing in increments of 10 until 40 where YHC called #omaha and we went to the trail

At the trail we did two full rounds of baton death marches, with PAX needing to do two burpees before running to the front of the line

After that we went with a traditional Native American run back to the Lindsley Park pavilion and finished up with some core

Hope to see Dirtbag’s friend again for what should be a good naming (cough…Stepbrother…cough)

MOLESKIN:

A late lightning Omaha moved the workout from Phelps’ front yard to the Burleson parking garage and YHC volunteered to take the Q since Phelps was homebound.  YHC limped his way to the garage with an achilles injury and awaited AlrightAlright who texted at 5:25 that he was en route coming in hot from FPH via Phelps front yard.  Sound Machine also via Phelps front yard, came in Tokyo sliding.  AA & the Subaru mafia were smart and parked in the garage.  We started a little late  and YHC brought out the AA special workout with no running and plenty of bear crawls since his achilles began giving him fits after KTT last week.  Mumblechatter was varied and I spent some quality time on the ramps with Jennay!  

Proud of the men that braved the parking garage this am!  We must have forgotten that lightning is a good excuse to fartsack!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

  • Carry the Load Memorial Day Event: May 30, noon – May 31, 13:30

MOLESKIN:
YHC showed up 15 min early to checkout field conditions and they were just as bad as expected! Nice and muddy. Classified and Teasip were already EC rucking before YHC arrived. During warm ups PAX ran the Indian Run. Many PAX pointed out that it was the fastest Indian Run in F3 Dallas history. First exercise were Bear Crawls and Crawl Bears in the mud. Draper had a hard time controlling his Crawl Bear. He kept veering off diagonally instead of straight back. YHC found a cheat code with Muddy Crawl Bears. Keep your feet on the ground and slide backward while pushing with your hands. Many PAX loved/hated the Australian Snow Angels as well as the Broad Jumps w/coupons. All the PAX enjoyed the ALARM (Arms, Legs, Abs, “R” exercise, “M” exercise) template. YHC forgot to take a picture.

MOLESKIN:
7 Brave souls showed up this morning to run in the rain. There was a lot of grumbling going on about how everyone was sore from the MURPH on Monday. Apparently, the rest of the AO’s so far this week kept the bar set high too. Avril was midpack for the first half and then found some sort of reserve energy from somewhere and was pushing Alright Alright on the back half. This lead  many of the PAX to accuse Avril of pulling a Chairman and only going half speed at the beginning.
