4 Stations- Do Sets Until Failure of:
1) Pull Ups (15 total)
2) Dips (50 total)
3) Balls to the wall/Overhead press (100 count)
4) Merkins (100)
This didn’t work well as we ran out of time; but the thought was to do a set until failure; do another exercise to failure, keep rotating until you’ve reached the cumulative goals (15, 50, 100, 100). I’ll work on adjusting.
Mary Music- Stronger- Kelly Clarkson
100 second plank.
CoT- “I don’t stop when I’m tired, I stop when I’m done”-Marilyn Monroe.
While the quote source was unexpected, the quote resonates because if we quit when we are tired, we would never push ourselves to get up and come out in the gloom, and stop accelerating.
Naked Man Moleskin- I totally forgot I was supposed to be q until noon yesterday when I didn’t see a PreBlast and was going to call someone out. I Googled Exhausted Tuesday and the fantastic meme inspired the workout!
A couple of shout outs:
Thanks to Mr Burns for having the 6 and for running a great Q Source at coffee.
Thanks to Grace for being my partner on the Dora, and the great mumblechatter.
Thanks to OldManBlue for coming back out- not getting hurt when you trip on a coupon!
Thanks to Glass Joe for coming back out- let’s get you on Slack, so you can see the meme!
Thanks Gipetto for humoring me on the Sumo Walk- we probably should never actually wrestle…I don’t want to get destroyed.
Thanks to SlickBack for pushing the pace on the Dora- we might still be trying to finish.
Thanks to Terps for setting the tone on the Rebel Run with a SPRINT!
Thanks to Uncle Buck for coming back out, and for the tragic but inspirational story in CoT- GO Get your heart scan!
Thanks to Damone for giving it your all- and continue to improve every time out.
Thanks to Undercover Brother for being a freak, pushing the pace, and pushing me on Merkins when my body was fighting back.
