YHC discovered a new toy and purchased at the local dollar store a dodecahedron die with various exercises printed on the face of it. See List.

Squat Jumps

Wall Sits
Jump Tucks
American Hammers
Merkins
MTN Climbers
Run-Modified from original “water break”-YHC don’t Q those.

Side Planks

The PAX took turns “rolling the die” PAX either can’t follow direction or “got creative” with how the Die was rolled. Thankfully the Die remained intact and was not lost on roof or under cars. Fun was had by some work was done by all. Much mumble chatter was made.

I’m sure we’ll see the die again.

Don’t Stop Til You Beat It with a Bad Jam that makes you wanna Scream

Murfreesboro, Bragg’s Isle, 06/28/2018

Michael Jackson died 9 years ago this past Monday, June 25 (R.I.Pee-hee). AND his dad died just yesterday. YHC has been waiting months to craft yet another musically-motivated creative workout that burns through the King of Pop’s career with his highest-energy hits. This Is It.

QIC: Aristotle, with a single white glove on his left hand

PAX: Iditarod, Aristotle, Ace & Jack (fartsack for King), Noble Virus, Grohl, and special guest The Count from Chattanooga

WOR:

YHC overcame technical difficulties with the Bluetooth speaker while Noble Virus did a simple lap around the MMC parking lot and led PAX through Good Mornings x10 and Imperial Walkers x15.

(As we shall see, five minutes of fiddling with the Bluetooth was totally worth the next 40.)

THE THANG:

Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” (DSTYGE) = With the speaker operational, YHC cut WOR short and quickly queued up DSTYGE as our cardio/mosey theme song and we began a brisk mosey to Bragg’s Isle. Halfway there, we switched to backwards Politician stride (today, it’s the Moonwalk).

Beat It” = Leg workout. As a group, nothing but Lt. Dan’s (squat + bi-weekly lunges) from the weird metal statue all the way to the gazebo. Sprint AYG from the gazebo back to the statue. Squats x25 OYO for good measure. Before the cops catch us for tresspassing, we Beat It.

Mosey to the playground with DSTYGE providing us with a groove. The song lasts for the entire trip there.

Bad” = Back workout. Partner up PAX. One partner does bench dips on the picnic tables, one partner does Pullups (or Negatives, or Inverted Rows) x10 on the monkey bars. Switch. Repeat until the end of the song. Who’s Bad?

YHC intended to mosey PAX to the basketball court to properly stage the next number, but for the first time ever in the history of Bragg’s Isle F3 we were caught by the train. Incline Merkins x20 while we waited, to no avail. So we utilized the soft playground floor instead.

Jam” = the centerpiece and original inspiration for this workout, many months ago. Each synth horn blast in the song, every 8 beats or approx every 5 seconds, is your cue to do an 8-count Bodybuilder (slowed-up burpee with Merkin and split jack). There are 66 horn blasts in “Jam” and no PAX did them all but we tried to keep up. Extra credit: after Heavy D’s second rap interjection, the horn blasts come at you every 4 beats, 7 total. Do burpees there, and stop for the pause where MJ kicks the basketball behind his back into the hoop nothing but net. (Y’all remember.) It ain’t too hard for me to Jam.

With the train long gone, DSTYGE for a gentle mosey back to MMC parking lot.

Scream” = Circle of MARY. Each PAX picks their ab poison while Michael and Janet belt out to remind us the pain makes us wanna Scream:

  • Iditarod – Flutter kicks x20 IC
  • Grohl – American Hammers x10 bi-weekly OYO
  • Ace – Leg lifts x15 OYO
  • Noble Virus – Rosalitas x 15 OYO (in honor of CDL)
  • The Count – Boxcutters x15 IC
  • Jack – American Hammers x15 bi-weekly OYO
  • Aristotle – LBC’s for the last minute of the song

COT:
Michael Jackson was awesome, Jesus is better (not sure where I was going with that but it works). Prayer.

Make that change.

The Dirty, Hurty, Wordy Thirty-Three

QIC: Aristotle
PAX: Iditarod, Yosef, Schnitzel, Aristotle, Grohl, CDL, NPR, Tiger’s Blood, a welcome back to Scraps, and a hero’s return to Omaha

YHC turned 33 on March 10. Decides to use his belated birthday Q to push his and all the PAX’s limits.

WOR:

Long lap around the Square, counter-clockwise
SSH x33 IC
WMH w/BAC x11 IC
WMH w/RBAC x11 IC
Good Mornings x11 IC
Hillbillies x33 IC

THE THANG:

Mosey to the bottom of ‘Sweat Box’ parking deck between Maple and Walnut.

Simple math. Three Elevens = Thirty-Three. (Not 311 the band, though YHC wished out loud that he brought some portable tunes.)

First Eleven:

Squats at bottom, jump/squat thrust at the top. Four flights of stairs in between. So much thigh burn. Convene on the 2nd floor. Mosey to 3rd floor.

Second Eleven:

On one side, use the handily-placed concrete joist to attempt pull-ups. If pull-ups unsuccessful, try Negatives or a dead hang for as long as possible.

On the other side, do some ‘REAL MERKINS’ i.e. proper push-ups: glutes and abs tight, back straight, no humping the ground, break the plane and pop yourself back up.

Many midwife noises on those attmpted pull-ups. And bits of concrete in the hair…

Third Eleven:

Ascend to 4th floor. LBC at bottom of the ramp, brisk mosey to the top of the parking deck for alternating shoulder taps.

With time running out, cut this last Eleven short for WW1 x33 OYO

Mosey back to the Square.

COT: Jesus was also 33 when he was crucified and rose from the dead. Ergo, YHC dreamed up a moderately excruciating workout. Encouraged PAX to recall the cross until Good Friday and await the hope of resurrection Sunday aka Easter.

02/05/18 The Boro

QIC: Nuggets
PAX: Aristotle, Iditarod, Schnitzel, Yosef, Papa Juan, NPR, CDL, Scraps, Noble Virus, Grohl.

WoR:

X15 Good Mornings IC
X15 Imperial Walkers IC
Handful of washers and dryers
Baby Arm Circles increasing in size.

It:

PAX joined together to Settle Catan through some hard labor.

PAX travelled to each corner of the square for a different exercise (Merkins, Squats, WWI’s, and Lunges). A singular die was rolled to determine the quantity of each exercise (number rolled x 5 = quantity).

After 5 sets, Catan was effectively settled.

Next PAX competed in a 1v1 hand-smacking-plank tourney. Iditarod took the cake in the finals vs. Scraps.

Then PAX hit the curb for a bear crawl, 10 shoulder touches, crawl bear, and 10 merkins. Rinse and repeat.

Then a duck walk, 10 squats, a walk duck, 10 more squats. Rinse and repeat.

Rounded out with an ab circle with a twist of rolling the dice for quantity (number rolled x 5 = quantity)

CoT & BoM.
