CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out and asked for strength and endurance for the rest of the week.

MOLESKIN:
Grumbling began immediately when YHC called for a mosey to the track. The only explanation can be is that Slippy’s track workouts of late have given the track a bad reputation. Anyways, every lap around the track was in memory of every donut that Bleep consumed during the Krispy Kreme Challenge. After 1 mile Phelps was ready to call it a day but YHC had other plans. After 2 impressively fast relays PAX moseyed back to the parking lot where YHC tortured everyone with a drawn out MARY until 0615.

1 penalty burpee for Ant Man’s tardiness

THA THANG:

Mosey to Quad for the Doomsday Clock for approximately 40 minutes:

Making use of the 12 spokes (sidewalks) out from the fountain, YHC had PAX perform the following rotating around each spoke like clockwork. 

  1. 10 Pam Andersons (burpee nippler)
  2. 20 Squats
  3. 30 V Ups
  4. 40 Merkins
  5. 50 Rugby Situps
  6. 60 Gorilla Squats
  7. 70 Mountain Climbers (x2)
  8. 80 Lunges (x1)
  9. 90 OH Presses
  10. 100 Plank Jacks
  11. 110 OH Claps
  12. 120 LBC’s

Following each set of exercises, PAX ran the length of spoke, performed burpees x station number (total of 78 burpees) and ran back to fountain (hub) to start next station.  An exception was made following gorilla squats and OH presses, where PAX bear crawled the length of the spoke and back.  

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out.  YHC challenged the PAX to seek the input of each of their M’s about F3.  There has been a theme lately from several of us whose M’s have not held F3 in the highest regard for various reasons, which means that we and much more, I, have failed to properly bring back the tenets of the life-changing organization back to my home.  I challenged the PAX to bring back the feedback and vowed to create more 2F events that include the M’s and 2.0’s as we begin to emerge from Covid prison.  

MOLESKIN:

YHC had the thought to roll this oldie out after not having completed it in over a year.  Many new PAX that had not felt the burn of the Doomsday Clock so why not!  PAX were spread around the circle and YHC heard several conversations (this tells me there is much more effort to be put forth if one can carry on a park walk chat).  YHC received several complaints and groans, but only one emphatic “FU” from Rump so I will assume that he is getting stronger and the workout isn’t a cake walk since it seemed to gas most everybody else.  TClaps to Classified and Special Sauce.  Classified kept a weight vest on the entire time.  This workout sucks without added weight.  Sauce brought a speaker and playlist with minimal notice.

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!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC prayed us out

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:
Bleep started the nonsense of trying to exceed “700 cals” during the 45min workout. YHC took that as a challenge and started the PAX off with a bang out of the gate with burpees. The warmup consisted of a mile of running and 5 exercises increasing by 5 reps starting with 10. YHC heard the usual compliments of Rump Roast but after the second lap YHC didn’t hear any mumblechatter from Rump. Sound Machine stayed strong and didn’t modify but understood his limits. Good to have DFib and Aaarrrggghh back out there to keep the mumblechatter high. The #westside is happy to see the return of Special Sauce after a birthday beatdown over the weekend. The sexiest of all panthers, our very own Sex Panther, was back in the saddle again after getting some recovery rest. Quite a bit of mumblechatter about the playlist but was strange that everyone sang along the entire 45min. Special Sauce also made the recommendation that YHC make the playlist for the 6 mile ruck during TID18k. Watch out DJ Icebox! This wasn’t the beatdown we all wanted but it was the beatdown we all deserved.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

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:

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!

Luckily(?) for the PAX YHC and Dirtbag had talked about splitting up the Q last night so when Dirtbag KO’d himself during the EC run (possible delayed victim of murder bunny’ing up The Hill at Lindsley?) YHC was kinda sorta prepared.

Mumblechatter picked up in the second half when there was a lot less counting and we rocked out to SirusXM’s top 500 hip hop songs, I think we heard 478-465. Teasip went 2 for the first 10 on knowing the artist

I posed the question of what would happen if Rump Roast tried to use a speaker, interval timer, and dice during a workout and the consensus was that his head would explode

Thanks to the PAX for putting up with a half baked Q on a cold and wet day!
