4 HIM took the DRP and fought through a phalanx of bodyweight exercises to become honorary Hulkamanics.
PAX: Crablegs, Trapper Keeper, Vector
QIC: Cunning Linguist
After a surprisingly short disclaimer (given YHC’s typically verbosity), we departed from the shovelflag area at 0530 with Bluetooth speaker in tow and moseyed approximately halfway around the lower soccer field and then found a dry spot to circle up for our WOR:
Feeling sufficiently warmed, we then moseyed to the playground area and then YHC announced THE THANG.
But first, some background: as a child of the 80’s, YHC was obsessed at an early age with pro wrestling. YHC decided to create a list of my “Mount Rushmore of Pro Wrestlers” as well as a related playlist to keep us all motivated.
Song 1: “Real American” by Derringer – Theme Song of Hulk Hogan
During the verse, we performed American Hammers.
During the chorus, we performed Merkins. (because who is more American than the Hulkster, brother?!)
Countdown from 30-1, then short mosey to benches where YHC announced his second member of the Mount Rushmore of Pro Wrestlers.
Song 2: “Warrior” by Scandal ft. Patty Smyth – Song to represent Ultimate Warrior
During the verse, we performed Lt. Dans
During the chorus, we performed Overhead Presses (just like the Warrior).
Mosey around the lower field until finding a dry spot for our next stop.
Song 3: “Macho Man” by Village People – Song to represent “Macho Man” Randy Savage
During the verse, we performed Side Straddle Hops
During the chorus, we performed Burpees (because we all want to be macho men).
Yet another mosey toward lower parking lot, then pull off for final member of my list.
Song 4: “Rock & Roll All Night” by KISS – Song to represent Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
During the verse, we performed Squats
During the chorus, we performed Jump Squats (because we can’t perform the People’s Elbow without powerful legs as well – and have you seen the size of The Rock’s thighs??)
Mosey toward Pizza Hut gazebo, then stop for THANG 2.
3 rounds of DIDs – with “Da Dip” by Freak Nasty as our workout song (thanks to Crablegs for the suggestion and TK for the inspiration)
With time running short, YHC wanted to make it up to Vector for not following through on a promise made to him last week.
Therefore, YHC played “I Ran (So Far Away)” by Flock of Seagulls and led group on a bonus mosey (while listening to the song) around lower parking lot and back to shovel flag.
Landed at shovelflag at 0612, leaving us with about 3 minutes of Mary:
15xAlabama Prom Date
20xLittle Baby Crunches
Prayers for Vector as his son started his first day of HS this week!
Prayers for TK as he continues to receive positive news from the doc and whose right knee is healing well!
Prayers for Crablegs as he and the M recently celebrated 3 years of matrimony!
Quote from Phillipians 4:13: “I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me.”
May we continue to show our humility and vulnerability as we grow as leaders and pillars in the local community.
Always a pleasure – today was no different in that regard. That said, today was a true blast, and YHC’s goal was show that we are all human and we all have our guilty pleasures. It is okay to admit these to one another. Let us continue to grow in our willingness to be vulnerable and in our willingness to trust in our fellow man!
9/14 – 5th Anny of F3 Nashville. Fun starts at 0600. Don’t miss it!
