WARM-O-RAMA:

THA THANG:
Mosey to the football field for 11’s with Merkins (start at 10, go down to 1) then run across the field for Squats (start at 1, go up to 10). Go until 10 Merkins and 1 Squat.

Headed over to the bleachers for 5 rounds of running up and down bleachers (3 were normal, 2 were bunny hop up and run down).

Do two rounds of 10 Irkins, 10 Dips, 10 Dirkins, and 10 Step-ups (each leg)

Do a lap around the track: Shuffled the curves, ran backwards down one straightaway, and burpee broad jump the other straight away. Mary after.

Mosey back to the park for 12 Dry Docks

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

1. Grow Ruck this weekend! Can still sign up, but probably won’t get a shirt

THA THANG:
Red Barchetta across the field

1 penalty burpee for Sally being 1 min late and then 8 penalty burpees for Tik Tok being 8 mins late (more to come on the penalty burpees) 

Safari: Form two lines, then do the below exercises two rounds each

Native American Duck Walk, everyone in line hold an Al Gore
Native American Bear Crawl, everyone in line hold a plank
Native American Crawl Bear, everyone in line hold a plank
Native American Crab Walk, everyone in line hold a Wilt Chamberlain

Everyone sprint like a roadrunner to the sidewalk, then Native American Run around the park to the playground

Mosey to the tennis court, where half the group did a suicide while the rest did burpees. Flapjack. 

Next 10 Dry Docks, and at this point, the ECers joined us. They were 52 minutes late, so everyone did 52 burpees, then ended with 10 squats

MARY:
We never did do the rugby sit ups

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

MOLESKIN:
YHC decided to take the PAX on a little safari this AM. YHC had thought about a big planned beatdown, but alas, was slammed with work this week, so that will have to wait. The Red Barchetta starter was a crowd pleaser and generated a few “FUs” from Rump. There were some issues with defining which fence and which trash can for a few of the sprints, so YHC knows why this exercise is normally done on a football field.

The NA Duck Walk led to some discussion about the best human duck call in F3, where the consensus was Ultra would have it, with Sex Panther second. Sound Machine had a rather surprising good duck call, which he claimed is partially due to his first car having hooves.

In the middle of the NA Crab Walks, YHC turned to Alright Alright and asked if the ECers joined the beatdown, should YHC make the PAX do penalty burpees for them being 35 min late. Alright Alright said we should, which YHC kept in his back packet.

A lot of mumble chatter during the Safari, which led YHC to think that maybe the Safari wasn’t a sufficient beatdown, so YHC decided to ramp up the cardio with the NA run and suicide at the tennis court. We decided to split into two groups for the suicides and YHC took Alright Alright’s suggestion of the group doing burpees while they waited, which YHC happily obliged (insert more “FUs” from Rump Roast). 

YHC was going to just do a few exercises and some Mary, but the ECers joined right after the suicides, so YHC had to be consistent and fair and thus 52 penalty burpees were required for the ECers showing up 52 min late. This led to quite a bit of grumbling and a few cries of foul from the ECers saying we were late to the EC workout. However, YHC would like to point out that YHC did not join the EC group or workout at all, so YHC didn’t attend the EC workout. The ECers joined the workout that started at 0700, and thus the penalty burpees were instituted. 

FNG naming occurred. Potential other names were Wild Thing, Dorn (Jobu brought him, so another Major League theme), or maybe Loggins (he has a great head of hair). But El Chapo, mentioned he is a rock climber the rock climbing led to discussions about El Captain where free climbing occurs, and that led to El Chapo. 

Shoutout to the perfect weekers (Big Tex, F150, Slippy, and Sex Panther) and pour one out for Bleep and Special Sauce. Bleep is usually absent on Saturdays, so that’s understandable. Special Sauce was unable to return from beyond the wall in time, as he journeyed to the great North yesterday. Though he’ll probably be happy that he missed all the penalty burpees after requesting no burpees.

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:

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!
