Labor Day Weekend of 400 Love

PAX: Deep Dish, FoxTrotTalksAlot, The Bell, Bad Boy, Hambone, Tommy Boy (from F3 Atlanta), and YHC TheJeweler

WarmUp: Short jog through the park, we circled back to pick up The Bell and FoxTrot.  – Circle up for: 20 SSH, 10 GM, 10 WMH, 10 BAC, 10 RBAC, 10 Air Presses, 10 Hillbillies, 10 Imperial Walkers… all done in cadence

Line up for sprint drills down and back 20m: High Knees, Butt Kicks, A Skip, B Skip

The Main Event: Jog up the hill across Granny White to Clayton Ave.  This is the start of the 400m.  We sprinted to the far side of Clayton to Belmont Ave. dropped and did LBCs until all in + 20 seconds.  Then we sprinted back 400m down Clayton back to Granny White.

The PAX moseyed back to the pavilion for a 5 min round of 10 exercises 10 sec rest by 20 sec exercise 10 sec rest etc…  The exercises were as follows:

  • Step up and jump (standing with one foot on the picnic table bench, you jump up off one leg and back down) 5-6 on each leg
  • Dips
  • Box Jumps (on to picnic table)
  • Decline alt shoulder taps
  • Bulgarian Split squats Right Leg
  • Bulgarian Split squats Left leg
  • Windmill sweeps (starting from standing position with legs apart and both arms up to one side at approx 1 o’clock, rotate down sweeping your hands across the ground at 6 o’clock up to 11 o’clock and them back… alt back and fourth
  • Slow merkin… 1 merkin over 20 seconds lowering yourself as slow as possible
  • Toe Raises
  • Fire Hydrants (working that inner thigh in honor of Labor Day)

Mosey back up to Clayton/Granny White for 2 more 400s then another round of 10 exercises at the pavilion

Back to Clayton for 2 more 400s then one final round of 10 at the pavilion.  Bad Boy was thrilled when Batter Up by Nelly came on the playlist as we were about to start 400m number 5!

~Jeweler Out

1K Rep Challenge & Hill Sprints

PAX: DeepDish, Tide, FoxTrotTalksALot, BoyBand, MightyStork, CommodoreBabyOil, Hipster, Razor, Bell, FNG Buckets, & YHC TheJeweler

Gloom Factor: Low… warm and sunny

Disclaimer was given as BoyBand came in hot… still no FoxTrot to be found.

Warm-O-Rama: We took off on a trot around the block… down Lealand up by the dog park and back around.  Pepper in some high knees, butt kicks, karaoke, ballerina skips.  Back to the parking lot where we found FoxTrot awaiting our return.   Continue with 20 SSH, 10 Hillbillies, 10 Imperial Walkers, 10 WMHs, 10 forward/reverse BACs, 10 Elevated Skips (from standing position, kick one leg straight out and clap your hands underneath… repeat right, left, r, l, etc… in a smooth rhythmic fashion).

We took it straight up the hill from the parking lot to the track around the white house, passing Tampalibra feverishly attempting to lock his bike to the playground.  After many failed attempts due to not having the right key, a cloud of defeat descended on Tampalibra and he was not seen from again. 

Main Event: Partner up for 1000 Rep challenge.  Each team does 100 reps of each exercise.  While your teammate is performing the exercise, you sprint a lap around the white house on the track.   The following exercises were completed in sets of 100:

Jump Squats, SSH, LBCs, Alt Shoulder Taps, Side Lunges, Kicking the Moon, Elevated Skips, Carolina dry docks, WW1s, Standing Twist (twist left/right just like it sounds).

The PAX knew what was coming next, but were unsure of the direction we would run.  We moseyed back to the entrance of the parking lot for sprints.  FTTA tried to will the PAX to run on the flat, but Q had something else in mind.  The PAX lined up at the entrance, then we did 5x jog to the manhole cover then all out sprint to the stop sign at the top of the road.

To keep the unit together, Q imposed the 10m rule… meaning as we jogged back down the hill in between sprints, the entire PAX had to stay within 10m of each other – No man left behind!!  PAX was pretty gassed and gave up the ghost on the last sprint.

MARY: Back to the lot for 7 mins of ab work.  We did some American Hammers, Toe Touches, Alabama Prom Dates, Super People, Star People or wide super people, crunchy frogs, and WW1s.

TIME!

Announcements: New Q signup sheet… AOQs will be managing signup and reaching out to the PAX on a more personal level.  5 year anniversary convergence on September 14th!

Push the 12 & Prayer Request: CommodoreBabyOil had his Navy flight exam today.  There were a few others and the Big Guy knows those.

As always a pleasure to lead and be lead.

Time
NMM:
Less running than YHC would have liked but the Indian Run was a nice twist to keep the PAX together. PAX kept in order for the entire am, another little mental test that proved no issue. The math at Fahrenheit Yoga was too much for YHC and thankfully, Aaaayyyy, from Austin crunched the numbers while the PAX did some burpees.
There seemed to be some disgruntled customers with the DJ mix this am, YHC takes full responsibility. The Spotify mix was not as hard and fast as expected, will be better next time or maybe it won’t…
Big turnout this week, first time in the teens in a bit.
Good to have PA in the mix and Black Lung even showed up early. Worlds are colliding Jerry.
Hambone was rocking the Mustache like a true champ. He may or may not have offered free mustache rides to a couple of bride tribes near P Brew.
Foxtrot coming off a bout of the butt flu acquitted himself nicely. It was obvious he was under the weather as his entry into the parking lot didn’t send PAX scrambling for their lives.
Porcelain is reppin 12th Man this month and has asked us all to Push the 12. PA and The Jeweler were 1&2 and shared their Thanksgiving for work rhythm and life rhythm.
BH:
Lots going on in the next few months. Head to Slack for more accurate info…this is what I remember 13 hours later:
This week we have Libeery with Bicentennial Man on Q.
On the 20th Porcelain is hosting a cookout.
Foxtrot is hosting a Lamaze class at his office on Tuesday at 1015.

What a great effort by all PAX this am. That one was a bit of a doozy and more than once YHC was close to Splash City. Thankfully, Big Country helped out w a little Splash around stop #5. Glad that all had a good time, the 413 guys and I were worried it was gonna be a 4 Horseman type of day but the PAX started trickling in at 0556. Deep Dish joined us on the way to Stop I and Black Lung was the “runner coming up, oh it’s just Lung” at Stop I. So cool to have Cowboy come hang w us for a bit and grab coffeeteria.

BH:
Many prayer requests for Ms suffering from cancer.
Big Country dealing with anger issues and doubt.

QIC: TheJeweler

Conditions: Sunny, 80 Degrees, gloom factor low

Disclaimer was give then quick jog down the road and circle back to the lot

Warm-o-rama: 30 SSH, 15 Good Mornings, 15 WMHs, 15 Imperial Walkers, 15 Hill Billies, 15 BAC, 15 Air Presses,  Sprint Drills for 20m: High Knees, Butt Kicks, A-Skip, B-Skip, Elevated Skips

Thang: Mosey over to the entry of the parking lot facing up the hill towards 12south.  PAX lined up and jogged ~50m to the manhole cover then all out sprint the remaining 50m to the stop sign.  Jog back as a group and repeat 4x.

On to the playground: PAX grouped up in groups of 2 & one group of 3.  While one group member is doing pullups the other is doing lunges.  Pullups went in reps of 10, 8, 6, 4, 2… switch out after each set.

On to the tennis courts: With the same groups we lined up on one side of the court.  Your partner bear crawled across to the other side then sprinted back to switch… after first 2 sets switch to crab walk.  While your partner bear crawled we did the following four exercises: Round 1 Side lunges, Round 2 pike pushups (start from push up position thrust legs into a pike similar to a Carolina dry dock & do a push up), Round 3 ski jumps, Round 4 dolphin pushups (from low plank position, elbows on the ground, you jump your legs up towards your arms into a pike then back down).

Round two: shuttle runs (half court to full court) while your partner does: walkouts (from pike position your walk your hands out as far past your shoulders as possible – basically an ab roller without the ab roller), calf raises, alternating super people (right arm left leg up, left arm right leg up), then windshield wiper pushups (hands wide and you shift from side to side doing a push up).

Mosey to the loop around the big white house.  Same groups… your partner sprints as fast as possible, one lap, while you do LBCs.  Each person runs once.  30 sec rest… rinse and repeat.

Long mosey around the back side of the park back to the entrance past the woman looking at the ground and the man with two dogs.

Just enought time for a modified circuit…  Sprint 50m 10 Merkins, Sprint 50m 10 LBCs, Sprint 50m 10 burpees, sprint 50m 5 flutter kicks & 5 crossovers.

MARY: 25 American Hammers, 10 J-LOs, 30 seconds of slow bikes…. TIME

After R1 we did a quick lap around the park and started w R2.

After R2 we knocked out 6 8 ct Body Builders at Deep Dish’s request. Actually DD wanted more burpees but Pop thought 8CBB were better.

As we headed back to startex, Indian Run called out. When we completed R1, YHC threw curveball, PAX IRing would loop around the other PAX and then return to the front again. We alternated between Regular and the Double back home.

PAX planked out as YHC grabbed football for what reason YHC still can’t say…

PAX finished out R3 w some mods but all exercises and reps accounted for.

Time

NMM:
First things first, never partner up w Pop A Lock when Bro Rowing that is unless you enjoy getting T bagged. Ask Deep Dish for details.
YHC failed on starting Garmin until about 5 minutes in so our mileage was a bit off. Cobains.
Also, some Qonfusion on IC, OYO and some of the exercises but all PAX seemed sufficiently smoked.
