Warm Up

  • SSH
  • Abe Vigoda forward > backward > seal clap > overhead clap
  • Don Quixote

Thang 1 – Doomsday Clock.  This exercise is usually Q’d at the end of the workout, often in place of 6MoM.  In some mumblechatter with Redick a few weeks ago at The Bear, there was discussion about how many push-ups we could do in a single set.  So, the Doomsday Clock was held at the beginning of the workout while pax were fresh.  We had 14 pax, and hit 400 reps before calling it quits with 3 pax remaining.  Strong!

Thang 2

  • Modified playground pull-ups while partner held Al Gore
  • Dips x flutter kick

Thang 3 – walking lunge from dips benches to auditorium

Thang 4 – box jumps up the auditorium stadium seating, burpees/flutter kicks at the top.  3 sets.

6MoM – dips > flutter kicks > dips > Dolly > dips > high plank, right star, left star, 6 inch hold

COT – prayers for Beaker and family as they deal with the passing of loved ones and family with health issues.

Naked Moleskin

  • I forgot to Q my signature exercise, The Breakdancer.  A missed opportunity…
