Since getting the reins of BlackWidow from Newport and Belly, Itcher Big Worm and I have been searching for new ways to keep the Tuesday fire alive for the PAX. What better way to stoke that flame than to post up the fiery pit known as the HotBox . But that’s not all, to keep the sparks flying, the doors of the corner office were opened up to allow the PAX a dose of extreme stair climber action, without the need for the gym membership.
Tower of Terror Prep: cones ready, signage in place, key fob in tow, head to the AO
Park and Plant the Black Widow Raidermade shovel flag, still holding strong since 04/15/14.
Awfully quiet this am, no PAX for EC, not even Coach…
Solo Sad Clown EC around the TPC stockpile down Providence to the .5 mile mark, turnaround and head back up to the ultimate day care, left towards the dumpster pull, right on super dark street, and back to the AO where the PAX were awaiting….managed to catch BlackJack in the BlackFord, heading out to a different, and apparently awesomer AO….
Pick up the PAX and head out
Run down Westbury; backwards up the darkest road in C-rock (cause we can); warmups in the parking lot to confuse the PAX on the master plan… the earlier tweet aluded to the tower and hotbox I wanted Nibbler to think that the plan had changed, he wasn’t fooled and attempted to bait me into a full 45 min of parking lot punishment…next time Nibbler, next time.
Warmup with 25 SSH, attempted to work on the flailing form of Nibs and lack of form from Coach, knowing that these two together were a tough combination for any Q, as such the mumblings and beatings continued…
10 Long slow Merkins, followed by 20 3 count flutters, then 15 Mountain climbers and we were ready to go.
Back to the corner office with a quick stop at Eddie’s place wall for the Double D, 20 Dips and 15 Derkins.
Through the hedge and down to the Hotbox, much to the chagrin of Coach who threatened to boycott, but he didn’t.
Grab a Partner and begin the coupon clippin..
- 200 Curls TOTAL with Partner flapjacks carrying mini coupon to the wall and back
- 150 Squats same flapjacks
Burnt Up Pretty good after this one, the HotBox was living up to its reputation.
Next up was the Tower of Terror:
Repeat Sets of ….
5 Pull ups
10 Hand Release Merkins
20 3 Count Flutters
Typically enough time for 2 full sets while partner was running the tower…
Partner 2: Up the 98 Steps through the office and down the other side, out the back door and down to the HotBox
The PAX got a bit split up on this one but it was brutal and fun. Bambino was kind enough to ask about dropping bombs in the company bathhouse (thanks for that BTW), while Madras no doubt was hitting up the water fountain cause being macho makes him thirsty.
Three rounds of the tower were enough for most and we were approaching time so out of the HotBox we went.
Mosey back towards the AO with a quick stop for some plank work and sprint down Crosby. Nibbler got a head start, and I almost caught Coach but his earlier sandbagging proved beneficial.
