21 PAX took that DRP this AM and engaged in what turned out to be a maths- and sports-themed beatdown, courtesy of YHC.

After the usual 1MW at 0529, a fully masked-up YHC disclaimed the Disclaimer at precisely 0530 and promptly led the PAX out the main entrance to Bomber and up Westlawn toward the far end of Bomber and to my fave WOR spot (which appears to be the nose of an aircraft sticking out of the ground).
24 x SSH
12 Imperial Walkers
12 x Slow and Low Squats
PAX and YHC appeared suitably warm, and henceforth, we moseyed over to the upper parking lot area nearest the main entrance for an explanation of the THEME and THANG 1.
As today was the 24th, the number 24 stood out as being relevant. Number 24 would be included to some degree throughout the workout today. One example of how important the number 24 is can be seen on a literal daily basis. We all have 24 hours a day, and it is up to us to use this time effectively! With this foundation, YHC ensured we had a playlist that included songs that had the word “time” in the title.
One example of the relevance of 24 is the jersey number of the late Kobe Bryant. While this was not his original jersey number, he did use 24 for at least part of his career. We lost Kobe earlier this year before the pandemic, and with all that has transpired since then, it is easy to forget that he started 2020 alive and kicking.
PAX line up at a socially distanced parking spot and performed YHC’s interpretation of the MAMBA workout (with special thanks to En Fuego for the idea a few months back):
24 x Merkins
24 x Air Press
24 x Mountain Climbers
24 x Burpees
24 x Air Squats
Sprint to the parking spot directly across from your starting point between moves.
Al Gore if completed early.
Once all PAX were done, we moseyed over the top of the main entrance for a single-person/modified DORA as THANG 2:
24 x Merkins
48 x American Hammers (one per side)
72 x Squats
Run around traffic circle at bottom of entrance between each move.
High plank upon early completion.
Last but certainly not least, YHC led the PAX over to the baseball diamond for a rather selfish indulgence – a chance to welcome back our national pastime by running the bases on Opening Day 2020. Except as part of THANG 3, we didn’t “run” the bases.
PAX socially distanced in the outfield while first person sprints to home plate, bear crawls to each base and back to home plate. In other words, everyone hit a home run today!
As soon as the first person arrives to first base, the next person sprints to home, and wash, rinse, repeat.
While PAX remained in outfield, they performed SSH, Iron Mikes, and Nolan Ryan.
Upon completion, we all headed to STARTEX for Mary.
With only a few minutes to spare, Mary was rather straightforward:
12 x Alabama Prom Dates
12 x Alternating Heel Taps
12 x Little Baby Crunches
Socially Distanced COT & BOM, with Verses of the Day:
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
Just want to reiterate my appreciation for each and every one of the PAX who attend workouts where I am the Q. I hope that my Qs are well-received and that I continue to improve in my cadence and leadership.
I also thank y’all for allowing me to Q while being respectful of the fact that I need to be masked up while outdoors. For those who masked up as well, bonus points for the show of solidarity!
Thank you, men!
-Continued prayers for all of us (thanks, Drago!)
