Looking at the time, 0529, and the Q (happy) had not arrived. Was this young man going to sleep through his long-awaited Q??? And then, as the clock struck 0530, he pulled into the parking lot like any 16-year old would, opened his door to complain about how he woke up just 15 minutes prior, and he was very tired. Regardless of the grumbling, he led us through a brutal, non-cadence, Warm-up.
20 Burpees (OYO) – (Mid way through Burpees, in fly Beignet and Cousin Vinny….. someone needs to get these youngsters new phones, alarm clocks, watches, something that will rise them from their comfy fartsack at the correct time.)
20 Big Boi Sit-ups (OYO)
Mosey from park, out onto the Cross-City Trail, and then around behind the park to Pine Valley Elementary School. The parking lot is a nice Oval that was utilized.
Due to insecurities with small arms, the arms, shoulders and chest needed a strong Beatdown
T – Tempo Merkins – 10 (IC), hold plank and switch to Shoulder Taps – 10 (IC)
Mosey to far end of Oval and complete the same excercised. Then mosey back to start.
R – Randy – in preparation for Christmas, this was a nod to the Christmas Story, and Ralphie’s little brother Randy. If you recall, Randy has a snow suit that will not all him to put his arms down, so neither did we.
Albatross – 15 (IC), arms remain straight up in the air after completion, and we walked to the far end of the Oval.
Moroccan Nightclubs – 15 (IC), again, arms remain straight up in the air, and we walked back to the start.
