MOLESKIN:

It’s Groundhog Day so what could we do over and over and over…Much mumble chatter about YHC not caring about shoulders today.  Perhaps I should have warned PAX to take care of their Starbucky shoulders.  Following the shoulder comments were the complaints of back pain.  I can provide the number of a good sports chiro!  Tclaps to Slushii for being prepared with an impromptu speaker to aid with the monotony.  YHC took pity on PAX with 10 minutes remaining and moved to some Mary since PAX were also upset YHC seemed to neglect core exercises today.  PAX were relieved until they figured out YHC was serious about holding feet at 6”.  Penalty man makers for lazy feet elicited what may be a record 5-6 “F U’s” on the Rumpometer.  I was humbled with such recognition and felt I should thank the Academy and everyone that supported me in my Q journey!

We all survived, had coffee and as far as I can tell, this week’s batch didn’t prep Slushii for a colonoscopy!

Thankful for each man present and wisdom to make decisions going forward while fighting COVID and leading our family, community, state, and nation. 

MOLESKIN:
YHC and Rump Roast pulled up to Glencoe to find only Sound Machine waiting in the gloom around 0525. Normally there is a larger crowd but that could be when YHC arrives its 0529. A few others showed up and we got right into warmups. YHC underestimated the time it would take to perform exercises and some of the exercises were not completed to full before the song ended. There were few burpees but not the amount YHC was hoping for when “naming that artist”. Next time YHC will have to choose more curveballs. There were two curveballs (What is Love – Haddaway and Animals – Nickelback) which took the PAX an extra minute to figure out. #Coffeeteria talk went many ways (in which YHC thinks it should). Some can be discussed and some cannot. We all learned about Oatmeals passion for pastries this morning as YHC announced he was heading to get some after the workout. The favorite pasty by Oatmeal (YHC agrees) is the Kouign-amann which is also now referred to as the “Cougar Mom”.

BAMA Beatdown

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:
PAX: Armpit, Avril, Classified, F150, Gambler, Oatmeal, Rump Roast, Slushii, Sound Machine, Special Sauce
QIC: Teasip

AO: INSERT
F3 DISCLAIMER & WELCOME: Given

WARM-O-RAMA:
SSH x52, IST x12, Hillbilly x12 (52-24 final score in the Natty), then a warm up lap

THA THANG:
Mosey over to the football field with coupons. As YHC mentioned, you have to pick your poison when playing Alabama, but it is “suicide” to leave Devonta Smith uncovered.

Thus, we did some coupon suicides. Run to the first light pole, come back and do 3 reps, then run to the next light pole and back and do 6 reps. Continuing until you get to the other goal line and back to do 12 reps (for the 12 catches Devonta had in the Natty)

Bicep Curls
All the way down Squats while holding coupons
Manmakers
Abs (curls while holding the coupon)

Since Bama when through the ringer of an all-SEC schedule (some say the toughest ever and the best final AP poll #4 team in human history) we did an OH press Ring of Fire to 55 (closest full round to 52)

MARY:
Rugby Situps x12, Rosalita x12, Freddie Mercury x15

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out

MOLESKIN:
YHC checked Band while clearing the mechanism in the AM and saw that Alright Alright became a father and thus was disappointed he was not there to post in the gloom. Special Sauce and several other PAX agreed and questioned Alright Alright’s commitment. 

YHC announced in the preblast that the beatdown would be Natty themed and the PAX realized once we passed 20 on the SSH that we would probably be going to 52 for Bama. YHC didn’t even have to point out the obvious that Ohio St lost by the exact same score as A&M and they didn’t even have to deal with a fully armed and operational Alabama offense like the Aggies did.

Several choice words from Rump (even said them via proxy through Sauce) during the suicides. Special Sauce also mentioned that Devonta Smith only played a half, so shouldn’t the suicides only be half of the workout, but YHC did not oblige. 

During the ring of fire, several eyerolls ensued from the PAX when YHC mentioned the toughness of an all-SEC schedule and how the Big 12 played defense now (from the flag bearers Oatmeal and Classified) and then some ACC comments too from Slushii.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. 4x4x24 CSAUP Feb 5-6 starting at 1900 on Feb 5

Turkey Hunting for T-day

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:
PAX: Alright Alright, Bleep, Classified, Gambler, Icebox, Oatmeal, Rump Roast, Slushii, Sound Machine, Special Sauce 
QIC: Teasip

AO: Glencoe #glencoefasho
F3 DISCLAIMER & WELCOME: Given

WARM-O-RAMA:
SSH x20, IST x20, Vegetable Picker x10

THA THANG:
Mosey to the field to start the Thanksgiving festivities. Had to start by finding and killing a turkey.

Searched for turkey tracks with Lieutenant Dans out to midfield, then reverse Lieutenant Dans back. Didn’t find much, so Bear Crawled out to get closer to the ground, and Crawl Beared back. Unfortunately, we ran into a BIG OL BEAR and had to sprint the full football field, then sprint back to escape.

Finally found a turkey, so did a turkey hunt: Partner 1 squat walks with coupon while Partner 2 does 10 curls (to get the guns ready), then run and chase Partner 1. Flapjack when Partner 2 catches Partner 1. Go to midfield and back. 

We had to next “murder” the turkey, so did murder turkeys/bunnies to midfield, then did “Annies” to season the turkey and Ring of Fire to start the heat and cook the turkey.

Next, we got to work on the sides/dessert. Partner up and do the following exercises (Partner 2 runs to midfield and back while Partner 1 does the exercises, then flapjack):

Man Mashed Potato Maker – 30
Stuffing Squat Thrusters – 30
Grip, Rip and Rolls – 30
Gobble Gobble Goblet Squats – 30
Pie Plank Jacks – 30

We had to go back for seconds as well (5 reps of each exercise).

MARY:
None/done during the workout

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
We all went around and expressed what we are thankful for, as well as prayer requests.

MOLESKIN:
Several PAX come wheeling into the parking lot at 0529, and Gambler even showed up a little late. More talk about the flatulence from the West Siders the day before. Rump let out a couple bombs even though the running was minimal and he destroyed everyone except Sauce on the first sprint away from the BIG OL BEAR (#tclaps to Alright Alright and Classified for being the only P1s in attendance). A fun workout with lots of groans throughout, so YHC will definitely be bringing this workout back in the future.

MOLESKIN:
Yesterday YHC made mentions of the inclement weather situation we were going to face this morning. Much to my surprise there was no rain but was still cold and wet. The conditions remind YHC of what I expect on every duck hunt. A typical duck hunting saying for inclement weather is “misery brings company”. YHC was hoping this rang true with the PAX this morning. Turnout was 11 for this non ideal weather day. The playlist consisted of a 10 nostalgic songs YHC has enjoyed over the years with a few sprinkled in to pay homage for Alright Alright (The Outfield and Akon). In true wannabe DJ Icebox fashion YHC picked songs from different genre’s – more of a Now 2001-2010 edition.

THA THANG:

Billy Madison workout – From the Exicon: Inspired by Billy Madison’s journey through back through school, this routine involves a running loop and exercise per grade.  For best effects, perform routine on school grounds. Begin with a loop (ideally single-file line leader style) to simulate the grade, followed by an exercise with 12 reps as the exam.  This concludes 1st grade.  Run the loop again, followed by the 1st grade exercise x 12 reps plus a new exercise x 12 reps.  This concludes 2nd grade. Continue with the loop and adding an exercise each time until you’ve completed one loop and exercise combo for each of the 12 grades. 

Exercises were as follows with a lap around the stadium after each round:

Bonnie Blairs

Irkins

LBC’s

Lunges

Yeah Thrusts

Merkins (time ran short at this point so YHC called a jail break back to La Mad)

A…

Had a few minutes when we got back to the parking lot so we did some Homer to Marge and then 6” hold until time

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out

MOLESKIN:
YHC had two workouts in mind for the gloom and decided on Billy Madison when Gambler introduced his FNG since it would be a more social/keep us together.  The running exercise combo got to the PAX and there was very little mumblechatter from the get go.  YHC recorded just over four miles and kudos to B Cup and Sweep for making it through a tough workout.  However, YHC determined us to be remedial students since we only made it through the sixth grade, but I was quickly reminded by PAX that the lap was in excess of a normal quarter mile.  So maybe we are just extremely thorough students.  Goal would be to continue training and see how much we can improve.
