A little jog around the John Trotwood Moore facilities, stopping by the tennis courts for some warm up exercises.
- SSH x 10
- LBAC x 10
- rLBAC x 10
- Moroccan night clubs x 10
- WMH x 10
The PAX partner up and make their way to the field (AKA Pelennor Field). One partner does an exercise, the other runs 2/3 across the field (~100 meters) and Bernies back. Flapjack.
Exercises are below:
No hand merkins (Hand release)
Humpers, monkey variety
Eight count body builders
After all NASHVILLE exercises are complete, the PAX then moved on for some 3 Pillars exercises, as (save for the most OG Princess Aurora), Middle Earth was the 3 Pillars AO before we were kicked out for COVID. This was an homage to the hallowed grounds of the original iii Pillars. This was the same idea as the first part of the workout, just different exercises.
3-Count Leg Lifts (3 seconds up, 3 seconds down)
Little Baby Arm Circles
Alternating Shoulder Taps
Split Squats (AKA Iron Mikes)
A total of 2.5 miles of traveling occurred during the morning’s festivities. The PAX then made their way back to the Startex for some Mary EMOM, with Flutter Kicks, Homer and Marge (AKA Alabama Prom Dates), Happy Crunchy Frogs (we missed you T-cell), and Good Mornings.
I mentioned this in my last #Bomber Q last week, but it’s worth reiterating here for the #MiddleEarth PAX. The Nashville PAX have been an immense blessing to me these last 4 years, and I find myself tremendously grateful for your fellowship, encouragement, camaraderie, and fitness. As my last Q while living in Nashville, it was a pleasure to bring things to a close with a NASHVILLE Q. A special thanks to Crablegs for EH’ing me many moons ago. I look forward to popping in for a surprise Q sometime in the future!
It became clear that the coffeteria GOAT needed a proper name for his post-workout refreshment setup, and with #MiddleEarth as the AO name and beverages being served out of the back of his vehicle, after various naming ideas it was only appropriate to name it the Prancing Pony. If you don’t get that reference, I feel sorry for you that you haven’t seen the Lord of the Rings recently enough.
Praise for Moneyshot being back with us after a month out with some health issues.
