July 6, 2019 – The Bean – Denari BDay Q

7 pax escaped the fartsart and the 4th of July hangover by posting to The Bean for Denari BDay Q. An epic meltdown of sweat in the humid Chicago not-so-gloomy 0700 hour. Denari led Homer, Noonan, Lavender, MaryLou, Ladybug, and Marco Polo.

Thangs started off quickly, as the Spy in the Sky (they’re always watching!) called in to Paul Blart with regards to our hoisting of the shovelflag. Old Glory is still not allowed in Cloud Gate, at least from the rules being abided by the man behind the radio call to Paul Blart. Alas, we must not forget, that we are on the same team as Paul Blart. And, with The Bean and Cancer Survivor’s Memorial being vandalized with graffiti earlier this week, we adhere to the rules and respect of those enforcing said rules. And so, we mosey’d and got down with them thangs!

Thang 1 – JPD x3 (JP Dinnell’s favorite non-burpee exercise is the A2G squat hold calf raises)

  • Breakdancer
  • Squat, up into → standing calf raise
  • Ass2Grass squat, hold, into → calf raise
  • Flutter kicks
  • FINISHER – Catalina Wine Mixer + Xs & Os

Mosey to bike rack – Aussie Pull-Ups

Thang 2 – AMRAP (20min time hack)

  • 24 squats
  • 18 arm holders
  • 12 dips
  • 6 burpees

  • Stairs (up and down – shout out “Sweet/Sugar Tooth at the top)
  • FINISHER – squat thrusters (4ct cadence)

Mosey to bike rack – Aussie Pull-Ups
