AO: Screaming Eagle
Date: 22 May 2019
Pax: Tombstone, Rx, Mounty, Hooch, Wi-Fi, Stouffers
Seven pax accepted the challenge and arose early to get their legs, butts, and abs in beach shape. It was a triumphant return to the Q position for YHC and I was looking forward to bringing back the basics.
Mountain climbers x20, SSH x20, Hillbillies x20, 10 burpies OYO
Let’s mosey to the picnic tables
1, 2, 2.8 Dora – Correct. I said 2.8. As mentioned previously, this was YHC’s triumphant return to the Q, thus timeline management was not necessarily the strong point. So let’s pick a battle buddy and begin.
Each pair will complete (1 pax runs to and fro while the other exercises):
100 crunchy frogs (4 count)
200 Smurf jacks (4 count SSH done in squat position)
300 Imperial squat walker (4 count imperial walker with a squat before each knee lift). At least the intention was to complete 300 of these. In reality, everyone was smoked after the ridiculous smurf jack requirement. So we got to a happy place so we could finish out the remainder of the workout.
No time for 11’s, so let’s do 7’s instead. We moseyed to a grassy place in honor of Hooch’s tail bone and found a short section between the sidewalk and a fence. It has to be short because we will be doing lunges too and fro.
Start with 0 American Hammers and lunge to far side. Complete 7 angle grinders (start in a sort of like Carolina Dry Dock position with feet together. Now flatten out and go all the way down for a merkin, then back up to ass in the air position). Reverse lunge back and do 1 American Hammer followed by 6 angle grinders.
Let’s mosey back to the flag for 25 flutter kicks to round it out.
COT: TAPs for Niles’ brother, teachers, health care providers, first responders, those that defend and all needs spoken and unspoken.
Moleskin: A very motivated squirrel joined the workout temporarily and ran right between two pax during Dora. Thus a new Screaming Eagle rule was born: If you can catch a squirrel, you get to skip the rest of the work out. Things I learned at the WO from Hooch: 1) Never eat or drink anything a student gives you; 2) Black market beers are going for $20 a piece; 3) You can vape beer. Things I learned from Stouffers: 1) Do not stand down wind of him.
Strong work Wi-Fi, it was a pleasure meeting you. Strong efforts from Tombstone, Mounty, and Rx as well! Well done!!
