CHEST DAY

  • When: 08/02/17
  • QIC: Bubble Guts
  • The Pax: McRib, Swiffer, Kevorkian, Honey Wagon, Cuddy, Sandbagger, Oz, FlankSteak, 420, Gypsy, Wiki Leaks, Up Early, Morning, Peeping Tom, Harris Teeter, Sputnik, Unicorn, Mr. Roboto, Faulkner, O Face, Bubble Guts (QIC)


21 men gathered Up Early for what was surely to be a highly motivated Morning. It started out a little dark, but men came out of the darkness like Peeping Toms to join in. As the sun rose, the dew rose from the ground like it read from the pages of a Faulkner novel; however fertilizer prevented us from hitting the grass. Therefore, we gathered on the rough gravel to do our thang. If only someone could have come and Swiffered all that fertilizer away.

As I wrote the workout last night, I wanted to focus on the chest. I was worried the Thang read like a prescription order from Dr. Kevorkian; however I knew this was a Sandbagging bunch and would tread through the performance like as if they were shopping at Harris Teeter. After the usual mumble chatter and some usual BS, we jumped right into chest day like a Russian launching Sputnik.

Warmarama:

Sun Gods x20

Imperial Walkers X 20

Calf Stretches

Merkins x 20

Lower Back Stretches

SSH x 30

The Pax pranced right through the Warma Rama as if they were some Unicorns. I could tell they were hungry for the next phase as if they were a couple hungry bears chasing a Honey Wagon. So we ramped it up a notch………

Pointless Mosey Around the club house back to the parking lot….

Thang:

Partner A: 4x4s (1 Burpee, 4 merkins, 4 mtn climbers)

Partner B: Bearcrawl to the bricks and Lunge Back

— Cumulative 100 4x4s – backed down to 75 mid work out.

Breathing got heavy as the Pax crawled on the ground like a bunch of drunk Gypsies during the bear crawl. McRib as usual owned the crawl, but I was seeing a lot of O Faces on the pax face as they got past the 50 count on the 4x4s. Once everyone got to the number, we held the Al Gore until the 6 was in.

Mosey to Underneath of Club house:

Each partner regrouped. Partner A took a seat at the Peoples Chair, while Partner B ran the loop. Personally, I was glad to be using a portion of my lower body. But after 2 peoples chairs and 2 loops, my legs became Roboto legs and had trouble bending appropriately.

To cap off Chest Day, we completed the following:

10 IRKINS

10 DIRKINS

10 Ranger Dirkins

Balls to the Wall – full pax 10 count

— RINSE AND REPEAT

At this point, I was gassed, like a 420 tank, but knew were close to the hard stop. We moseyed up to the lot for the Mary, which went down like this….

25 Merkins

Boat/Canoe

Low Slow Flutter

Back Stretches

Calf Stretches

After the count, we circled up for prayer. T claps were given to Mr. Roboto and Deuce for owning the Sasquatch like Wiki Leaks founder Julian Assange has owned both political parties. Othewise, there were no announcements.

Thanks for the opportunity to lead. Enjoyed it!

 

Bubble Guts

 

 

ps. I could not, for the life of me, work in Cuddy, flanksteak, Oz. so there you go…..

18 lads gathered at the most scenic spot in New Bern for an early morning beat down at The Point. After a couple days filled with precipitation, we got lucky with a nice cool, clear morning.

There is a bubbling “beef” brewing between the 6am yoga class and the F3 Point workout times. More to follow on this…. After mutual pleasantries, incredible amounts of flatulence and standard mumble chatter, we jumped right into it (a minute late) as Flank steak informed me….

Side Straddle Hops x20

Phelps Stretches x 10

Modified Plank Jacks x 15

McKenzie Lower Back stretches – 1 min oyo

Merkins x 20

Imperial Walkers x 20   —> Mosey to Park entrance

As we are completing the warmarama, the beady little eyes of the yoga instructor did not look friendly. We elected to move on out, before he lost his “center,” as we always try to be good men within our community….

Thang:

I. Snot Waggler/Catch me if you can:  x4 laps (added another for those who got done insanely early/over achieved)

Partner A -3 burpees and catches partner

Partner B – runs backwards until A catches him

Last 2 did 20 merkins (flapjack)

III. BackStage:

Partner A – did vertical jumps to stage while partner B does plank jack merkins

x75 vertical jumps

IV. SnotWaggler Reprise- see number 1. Pax were mad claiming that this was not planned, but rather to gap time…. Who’s to say?

Mary – Shes the best…..

LBC’s x 20

Plank Jacks – for real this time x 20

WW1 x20

McKenzie Back Stretches

Boat/Canoe x 10

Box cutters – Flank on Q – x20

As always, it was a pleasure to lead. I was impressed at the improvement made by the pax. My very first F3 at the Bear in October had Tonka from ENC show us the Snot Waggler. That was the closest I came to dying in 2016. Today was not so bad. Good job fellas!

18 Pax rolled up early to meet @ Bushwood for a soggy, damp, fun filled morning for what would be “chest/shoulder day.”  Though some were probably uneasy about the title of this program, all should not have been concerned as Bubble Guts has the chest of a wounded bird. If the Q can take it, we all can.
