YHC discussed the plain simple truth that I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL! Exercise at your own peril and scale/modify if you need.

The Thang:

Warm Up:

15 cotton pickers – IC

15 Seal Claps – IC

15 Pickle Pumpers – IC

15 SSH – IC

15 Hillbillies – IC

Let’s stroll the Burpee Highway….Partner in (4) teams of (4)…. P1/P2/P3/P4 kept together in team of 4….Indian Run….with mosey to stop sign at entrance of HMP.  P1/P2 broke left and P3/P4 broke right to meet around the backside of Freedom Way (aka around Goose Poop Island) to rejoin P1/P2/P3/P4 for 10 burpees OYO. All 4 teams were out on the course and met back at stop sign entrance for 10 more burpees…back around to the backside for 10 burpees OYO …total of 480 combined burpees 🙂 and then all ran over to pull up bars.  Much to the chagrin of Busted Grill & Flounder NO/NONE pull ups were even attempted while in their presence.

Mary…yep there was some done waiting on the 6.

We continued on with Bolas al Arbol (Balls to the Tree)…..hold for 5 seconds each of 16 pax that’s right a total of 80 seconds….

Failure to Launch – Circled up and all Pax held Al Gore squat for a 10 Ct., then tuck jump up and over to the next Pax until all counted. That took @ 2.5 minutes and we felt it in the legs!

Merkin Pyramid – Circled up for (1) Merkin-IC, then to knees for (1) air push OUT-IC, and then (1) air push UP-IC……then we did 2 and then 3 and then 4……climbing the Merkin ladder up to 10.  Not as easy as it sounds, aaaahhh Dixie Chick?

Mosey to tennis courts on back side of HMP path in the gloom for some group 4 corner ladder work:

20 V ups – corner 1

20 Vups, 20 Merkins – corner 2

20 Vups, 20 Merkins, 20 Hello Dollys – corner 3

20 Vups, 20 Merkins, 20 Hello Dollys, 20 Copperhead Squats – corner 4

Jail break back to AO


Countorama – Still had 16 PAX….that’s a real good thing. Last had to slip out ….. No FNG’s so that MUST change!!

Nameorama – Yep, we did this too……one take and BG filled in for Last. Sooner & Flounder were most cute in their little game.

Prayers, Praises & Announcements – #1) Jiffy Pop’s dad as he tries to figure out tightness in chest and pain down arm.  ER visit checked out OK, but digging deeper on it. Also, his wife and earache issues she was having last night (if momma aint happy no one is happy….am I right?!?). #2) Prayers for Karen Collette/family (friends of Gravity’s family) at the loss of her husband who was @ 55…….pretty tragic circumstances. So very thankful we have all come together in the gloom to have community and keep each other accountable. #3) Gravity is pulling together, with Snap-On, a new VQ school (for entire Cape Fear region) for those Pax who have never lead OR lead less than 2 times. Putting a seasoned Pax who has Q’d with them as the brilliant suggestion of the Special Advisor. More details to follow…. #4) Week 3 of F3 Qsource at Jesus & Jimbos as BG leads discussion on healthy communities and dynamic groups/teams.

Ball of Man – Yep, we did that.  YHC prayed us out into our mornings……..the hardest part of your day is now over. Thank you for the opportunity lead this a.m. and until you (we!) paint again…….TS out.
