Preblast:

This one is gonna be a doozy. Be prepared to work hard and sweat out the virus.

I’ve been reading about Molly Bloom and we’re playing poker friday so it’ll have a deck of cards theme. Gonna be fun.

BackBlast:

4 pax dialed into skype for a few minutes of mumble chatter followed by a very tough cards themed beatdown as a buildup to brining back second F poker this Friday.

THANG 1 – cardio/warmup

Lavender draws a card from a full deck of regular playing cards; number on the card indicates number of reps (face cards are 10); suit of the card indicates exercise; Deck of cards is considered complete after all 4 aces have been drawn; No breaks in between cards – goal is to raise heart rate

Aces – 1 full pullup

Hearts – high knees (right+left = 1 full)

Diamonds – Mountain Climbers (right+left = 1 full)

Spades – Burpees

Clubs – Side Straddle Hops

THANG 2 – Mary

Lavender draws a card from a full deck of regular playing cards; number on the card indicates number of reps (face cards are 10); suit of the card indicates exercise; Deck of cards is considered complete after all 4 aces have been drawn; No breaks in between cards – goal is to feel core burn and continue moderate heart rate

Aces – 1 full pullup

Hearts – Big-boi situps

Diamonds – seconds flutters (i.e. queen of diamonds is 10 seconds flutter kicks)

Spades – seconds of planking x5 (i.e. queen of spades is 50 second plank)

Clubs – American hammers (right+left = 1 full)

Made it about 4/5 of the way through the first deck and had only 3 cards left on the second deck. Was harder than anticipated, especially burpees and a few back to back lengthy planks. Marylou taught us about crude oil – if you own a bucket, get yourself down to Cushing, OK. Tim the Cowboy also stopped by to ask SweetTooth what he thought about cattle prices. Homer recommends the movie Rounders tonight to continue hyping up Lavender taking Mimbo’s money tomorrow night.

Stay safe out there, Chicago!
