Beginning of the 2022 Mother’s Day Bod

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:
PAX: Avril, Draper, Gold Digger, Maverick, Meatball, Silent Bob
QIC: Teasip/Icebox

AO: FPH #doubletime #mrm
F3 DISCLAIMER & WELCOME: Given with COIVD Disclaimer

WARM-O-RAMA:
Chatter about Cane’s (see NMM for more detail)

THA THANG:
DT’ers ran two loops with 20 upright rows with coupons in between laps

Ruckers rucked up and down the big hill, with descending T Merkins at top and descending reverse crunches at bottom. Started at 20 and got to 17

MOLESKIN:
Several of the PAX got concerned when YHC started pulling out his coupons, but YHC explained it was just for between laps for the DTers. There was discussion about Avril’s Mother’s Day gift idea to Slippy and how he was a big fan and went “once a month.” As he was challenged by Draper about how good it is, Avril explained he really only goes for the sauce, as the chicken is simply the medium through which the sauce is delivered to his taste buds. 

YHC wasn’t sure of mumblechatter on the run, as Meatball, YHC, and Draper all ran separately with Avril and Gold Digger running and chatting together.

Icebox was sure to mention that the hills with the exercises led to him and Silent Bob “hoofing it pretty good”, but this was “a better beatdown than Rump’s bear crawl vision quest”

Dual QOTY for Retail Therapy

Hey Dirtbag hold my beer real quick…

Special Sauce Trash Panda Stingray Stingray Meatball Slushii Rump Roast Draper sound machine DFib Jobu Sex Panther Bleep Phelps (Tim) Noah “Don’t Call me Baby Shark” Phelps, Shifty McCoy, and Sally joined AlrightAlright and YHC for the first ever Dual QOTY beatdown

Warmup:
SSH, ISTs, Veggie Pickers

The Thang (alternating Q’s with every other song)
AlrightAlright took us up to rock out with our Camp Gladiator friends to flex our muscles and intimidate them with our EDM beats

Then I ran us to one of the parking decks and stopped us on an incline for some Mary to work on the lower core

AlrightAlright made us do some spider man push ups and and mountain climbers…Draper and other PAX showed some genuine concern about “just” holding a plank for a bit and were disappointed that planking was the exercise we were doing

OG Icebox Alert!
Listening to Baby Shark, SSH with burpees every time they said “Shark” (basically two minutes of burpees)

AlrightAlright ran us up to the top of the parking deck and had us doing bear crawl suicides

Because YHC is a sadist we followed that up with a few minutes of Arms by Mrs Icebox

AlrightAlright wasn’t done bear crawling so we had to bear crawl down a flight of stairs and followed that up with some irkins

YHC then went for a mosey to a different parking deck and was disappointed in the lack of hustle by the PAX so started to burpee, even more confusion by the PAX as I’ve never instituted the burpee rule during a Q which led to 21 burpees once the 6 was in (would’ve been 40 if AlrightAlright had been doing the burpees)

AlrightAlright took a page of of the DJ Icebox instruction manual and had us mosey to a big stairwell for Mony Mony dips (listening to Billy Idol’s Mony Mony, hold a back plank and do a dip every time they say “Mony”)…Jobu asked how many that was and I promised I’d do a real OG workout where I count out the number of reps for each song

AlrightAlright then took us back where we started to roll around and do merkins on ant hills (clearly his tolerance for ant bites is greater than his disdain for doing core exercises on concrete)

Someone must have said something because AlrightAlright used some words my playlist wasn’t allowed to use and made us run around Starbucks, taunting us with what we could be doing instead of working out

YHC then rocked out with 4 more minutes of Mary on the ant hills since we were already contaminated

Announcements:

Draper is kicking us off of Band 6/1 so Teasip doesnt have to repost my backblasts on the website

Moleskin:

I planned a pavilion centered workout, which made it mumble chatter friendly, helping us get to know FNG-Colton. Alright Alright said something about too many burpees and not enough running. Icebox thanked me for the “dry” work out, which I wasn’t sure how to interpret, so I took it as a compliment. Some comments from the PAX in general about the integrity of the deck of cards.

MOLESKIN:
YHC journeyed over to the Harbah this AM to see how they live it up there. Solid turnout including Mr. Mom from McKinney (major T-claps!) and Phelps continued his perfect attendance. Name change to Iron Horse or Ironman perhaps?

Icebox and Meatball had their own #jeepmafia, but Dirtbag apparently didn’t give enough hard consideration last night as he was notably absent.

The burpee broad jumps were quite the crowd pleaser. Icebox did his best to encourage the PAX to work smarter, not harder by bringing their feet up to their hands to complete each burpee to give them an extra 6 feet (or 4 feet in Big Tex’s case) between broad jumps.

YHC is looking forward to coming back out to the Harbah again.

No Ultra sightings, so the under of 2.5 is looking like a solid bet unless he pulls his own Phelps and shows up the rest of this week

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. Grow Ruck this weekend! Can still sign up, but probably won’t get a shirt
2. 2ndF event this Saturday at Vector Brewing. M’s, 2.0’s and pets welcome!

Club Rehab for the Beach

#musclebeach #clubrehab #backblast

Dirtbag Meatball Special Sauce Ina Rump Roast Bleep Slushii sound machine Agnes Avril DFib joined YHC for some muscle beach meets club rehab action

I’m not going to lie, I just came up with all of that workout on the fly and I don’t have the it written down but here’s my best recollection of what we did

Warmup: the usual, SSHs, ISTs, hillbillies, veggie pickers, don quixote

YHC was having some challenges connecting to Bleep’s fancy blue tooth speaker (t claps Bleep for bringing!) Rump Roast was asked to get the workout started…he was a lil slow on the uptake so YHC quickly took the reigns back over…a lot of moaning during the veggie pickers and hillbillies, sounds like the PAX didn’t do any self care after TID18K

Mosey to the field with blocks

Because this was club rehab I prefaced the lap by saying if you didn’t have it in you to do SSHs, mountain climbers, or anything else to keep the body moving but turns out we’re a bunch of stubborn assholes and all ran a lap

Bicep block work of 21s, slow curls up, slow curls down, upright rows

Core block of jackknifes, LBCs, Freddy Mercury’s, uptown crunches, flutter kicks, box cutters, heels to heaven, rosalitas

Repeato the run, bicep, core

Repeato again, throw in some Pilate leg action, a few burpees, lil baby arm circles

Meatball called YHC out that we only ran 3 laps at 6:14 so I told him he had 60 seconds to get one more in, he did but a lot of other PAX tried to be hero’s and took considerably longer than 60 seconds and caused us to go over time by a few minutes

Seemed like a decent amount of mumblechatter throughout but YHC was counting a inordinate amount but hope y’all feel like you got some good core and will be beach ready in now time!

MOLESKIN:
YHC had promised Ina there would be no #mustang this AM, but when it was 0627 and Ina wasn’t there, YHC debated doing it since it had been so long. But, alas, Ina rolled up in the minivan at 0628, so we moseyed to the trail.
Avril had received a verbal from Bleep, but like many college bound athletes, Bleep changed his commitment the day of. Not sure if he received some impermissible benefits or not. The Infractions Committee is currently investigating and thus he may receive probation or a cervesa reduction for a couple months.
Overall a good time had on the trail with some complaints from Alright Alright about others getting a head start, Avril going a little hard on a few quarters and Ina doing his best dazed and confused of “I stay the same speed, but everyone else keeps getting faster.”
Five PAX did their best #westside impression by hitting up Starbucks after. No PSLs were purchased, but some HIM did purchase coffees for their M’s (Alright Alright and Avril). YHC, Chairman Mao, and Gambler did not partake in the purchase or drinking of caffeinated beverages.

MOLESKIN:
YHC had plans for some bear crawling and other fun grass related exercises, but the rain made the field extremely muddy with standing water, so YHC decided to Omaha back to the basics. YHC planned to do the entire Dirty McDeuce in cadence, but quickly realized the Jump Squats would be rather difficult to do in cadence, so YHC pivoted to making those OYO.  

Some grumbling during the punishment burpees, including Sauce trying to convince YHC that Meatball felt caught up after about 4 burpees, but we did all of them. A lot of talk about where Dirtbag and Icebox were, with the assumption being traffic was keeping them from the beatdown with all the rain.

AA did some grumbling with the backwards running and the large number of squats, but YHC was feeling a leg heavy day. Overall a good day and we were able to mostly avoid the rain and mud.

Moleskin:
This was the first time that I’ve finished this WOD, it took us about 70mins total and it sucked. I remember during warm-up Dfib was chatty to the point I almost stopped to do OYO burpees but let it slide knowing he was about to see plenty of burpees! I think at the first set of burpees, Teasip knew what we were in for. Just a few minutes in Sound Machine caught on to the pattern. Within just another minute or so Meatball gave me a direct “Fuck U Rump”!  Sound machine at one point sang a Fuck You Rump cheer/fight song. I consider it a win! T-claps to everyone there this morning for getting up and getting out here! Teasip helped push the pace, TikTok with the form to watch. It’s a true beatdown and everyone agreed to push thru another 10-15mins to finish the routine strong. Way to give it away men! #HIM’s

MOLESKIN:

Started off a trio and after a victorious battle with the snooze button, Meatball joined about halfway through the workout.  Another cold morning in the snow and YHC appreciated the presence of the Lindsley Crew (Siesta was noticeably absent after I called him out the day before).  Very little mumble chatter as our Texas blood is still much too thin for this type of weather.  Speaker would have come in handy this morning!
