LBAC R x 10

Mosey over to the soccer field and split into two teams. Teams line up on opposite goal lines. Team 1 performs 15 merkins and runs to opposite goal lines while Team 2 does 15 squats and runs to Team 1's goal line. Each time you meet in the middle, do 5 burpees, and decrease merk/squat count by 1 rep with each run. #crowdpleaser
Slowsey over to the blacktop and do a bit of "prep work" with lunging, sidestepping, and bear crawling around the perimeter of the court. Time for some suicides!
One full suicide x 5 with no rest. 20ct. Here I explain to the pax that this one will be timed. 39" later, I inform them that if we beat it, we're done. If not, more suicides. 35" later and we all exhale.
At this point, YHC decided to make use of the abandoned basketball and try our hands at free throws. Each missed free throw is punished with 5 burpees for the group. This time would be better, right!?
Wrong. After my first miss and those first 5 burpees, we unanimously decided that we'd just add a burpee for each consecutive miss and that the total would reset after a make.
7 misses and 33 burpees later, Huggy hits one to cheers from the rest of us. We then proceed to add a few more burpees as we finish an atrocious 1-12.
15' remain and YHC gives the pax a glimmer of hope (doubtful) by promising to end the workout right there if I can make the 3/4 court shot from the opposite three-point line. Way off.
Indian Run down Kirkwood to Granny White. With perfect timing and perfect execution, I might add, everybody's had a turn when we make it to the handiramp.
Ark Loader with Bear Crawls, Crab Walks, and Frog Jumps, and then head to the jungle gym for 5MOM:
Rev Plank Bridges x 30"
Side Star Plank R/L x 15"
LBCs x 10
Boxcutters x 10
Rev Plank Bridges x 30"
FNG showed up at 0658 and said Edible Arrangement told him about it and that he was coming. 0700 and no sign of him as we take off, but here comes his truck barreling down Clayton. Thank goodness because we never would have learned the story of his child acting experience in The Phoenix and the Magic Carpet, his new F3 namesake. Welcome!
After much discussion amongst The Office regulars, the men of the West End Club are launching a workout at Elmington Park this Monday at 0530. Check Slack for updates and confirmation of meeting spot.
The Office will now convert to a run workout with Hambone taking the reins. 9:00 pace and same launch point for all those interested. The AO will perhaps serve us for special events and CSAUP activities as well.
Continue to pray for the Kemps and Wallaces, and be thinking about Supersonic as he's about to plunge into the joys of fatherhood.
Football season starts soon. Go Tigers.
