The Zoo Review

Eight men went on the worst trip to the zoo ever Saturday and paid homage to as many animal-themed exercises as they could stand.

We warmed up with:

  • Werewolf- series of downward to upward dogs
  • Spidermans x 10 in cadence
  • Gorilla Humpers x 10 in cadence
  • Black Snake Indian Run to the parking lot

We all lined up along the curb closest to the school, facing the fence at the rear of the parking lot:

  • Bearcrawl to fence, stopping at each row of parking curbs (5) to complete Reverse Grip Merkins x 10 and Scorpion Dry Docks x 10, 50 in total for each
  • Duckwalk back to starting curb, stopping at parking curbs to complete 15 Toe Touches with each foot and Calf Raises x 15, 75 in total for each
  • Crabwalk toward fence, stopping at each row of parking curbs to complete Low Country Crabs x 10 each foot and Mountain Goats x 10 on 4-count, 30 total each.  We stopped at the third parking curb since it was in line with the entrance into the prestigious Caruso-Coates Stadium where we moseyed so that every man could have his own row of bleachers.
  • Raccoon Crawl across the row and complete 20 Copperhead Squats
  • Five sets Up/Down the bleachers.

Everyone completely gassed.  Roboto had two strokes and died once before resuscitating himself for our mosey to the track.  Lots of really sad faces as the group expected running.  We didn’t use the track, just the practice football field.  Half of us stayed at one goal post and the others crossed the field to the opposite goal post.  We partnered up and completed:

  • Partner 1 Pull-ups on cross beam to failure + 1, assisted by partner 2, switch
  • Pull-ups to failure +2
  • Pull-ups to failure +2
  • Tire Flips x 10

We moseyed under the covered courtyard for:

  • Box Squats x 20, two sets OYO
  • Dips x 20, two sets OYO

Mosey back to the starting point where we wrapped up with:

  • Dancing Bears in cadence x 30
  • Oblique Crunches x 15 each side, x 10 each side, x 5 each side

This one definitely looked better on paper than in person but everyone finished.  The Q was the only one complaining.  For anyone else Q’ing the Bear, thinking about using those tires, go flip them a couple times before you decide how many reps to ask your comrades to perform.  They’re legit.

Very solid work, going to still be sore at Two Fingers’ Fartlek tomorrow
