When you Q at The Charge, you need to be prepared to bring IT because you can count on John Deere, Chicken Wing, Carrier and Charcoal to show up. Beasts. And Pigskin. Pigskin is 66 but absolutely crushes it. You do not want to disappoint. Of course, today John Deere and Chicken Wing did NOT show up but the Beasts were still well represented. Here is what we did:
Warm ups: 20 merkins, 20 SSH, 20 MC, 20 Copperhead Squats and the Grapevine stretch- The Standard. The BT Standard.
1st team exercise-100 merkins. Partner 1 runs from midfield to the goal line and back. Partner 2 does the merkin. Flapjack until the team exercise is finished.
2nd team exercise-200 WW2 sit-ups. Partner 1 backwards runs to the goal line, runs forward back. Partner 2 does the situp. Flapjack until the team exercise is finished.
3rd team exercise-300 squats. Partner 1 karaoke to goal line and back. Partner 2 does squats. Flapjack until the team exercise is finished.
Next we ran to the left corner of the end zone and did 10 lunges (10 each leg). Ran back to midfield and did 5 burpees.
We then ran to the right corner of the other end zone and did 15 IW. Ran back to midfield and did 5 burpees.
We then ran to the middle of the same end zone and did 20 merkins. Ran back to midfield and did 5 burpees.
Next we ran to the left corner of the same end zone and did 25 plank jacks. Ran back to midfield and did 5 burpees.
Finally we ran to the opposite end zone (right corner) and did 30 squats. We ran back to midfield for a 10 count.
Partner 1 goes to left sideline and does 10 plank jacks. Partner 2 goes to right sideline and does 10 mountain climbers. Once exercise is finished, run to middle of field to do 10 handslap merkins with partners. Repeat with 8, then 6, then 4 and then 2.
Running out of time so we moseyed back to the parking lot for some Mary.
Announcements: Qs needed.
YHC with the Takeout
NMM: Mumble chatter is expected and welcomed but YHC was taken back about how quickly it started. Once the cadence passed the 10 th merkin (we did 20), it started. The choice of tunes (AC/DC) was also targeted. GAAP showed up late-shocker- and was complaining before he even joined the warm ups. Then, YHC heard the voice of Nibbler. No, Nibbler was not part of the mumblechatter. Instead, Nibbler said: “Be aggressive Blue. Fight Back. You are the Q. AC/DC rocks” or something similar. Throughout the workout, the mumble chatter increased. GAAP did not like the tunes. He said it all sounds the same. Apparently, GAAP prefers Culture Club and George Michael. Hollywood said the music gave him a headache. Charcoal prefers show tunes. Senor Chips did not recognize Metallica, AC/DC or Ozzy Osborne. If he had failed to recognize the Rolling Stones, YHC would place him in Kieffer’s category. Not Nibbler. Nibbler is a connossieur of hard rock music. Nibbler knew all of the artists. Nibbler knew all of the tunes. Nibbler gets an A plus.
At 5:30 AM, one would think music that gets your heart pumping and your adrenaline flowing would be preferred and appreciated. AC/DC, not Peter, Paul & Mary. Ted Nugent, not Tony Bennett. Metallica, not Barry Manilow. When YHC has the Q at an early morning workout, you can count on heart pumping, chest thumping music. Here is an idea: If you don’t like the music or the workout, the Q sheet is open.
Thanks for the keys, Pigskin.
