Synchronized Swimming to Combat Your Holiday Dicky Doo

Around the holidays, especially as we get older, we may find that it’s not uncommon to over indulge to the point where you find yourself sporting a dicky doo. A dicky doo, for the uninitiated, is when your belly sticks out farther than your boner (which can happen for some more easily than others). Like an unkempt unibrow or a proper deep-Southern mullet (Joe Dirt style), it’s not a good look. It’s our mission this year to combat the dicky doo.

Warm-o-Rama: SSH x 20 (IC); Imperial Walkers x 15 (IC); Prayer Squats x 10 (IC); Plank Jacks x 10 (IC); Merkins x 10 (IC); Jump Squats x 15 (OYO). We moseyed a lap around the church.

We did a round of 4 Corners around the church. Facing Carmel Rd., forward sprint to the corner for 5 Burpees; side shuffle right to 5 Burpees at the corner; backwards run to 5 Burpees; side shuffle left to 5 burpees; forward sprint back to start; LBC’s as we wait for the six.

Grabbed blocks and circled up for: Goblet Squats x 10 (IC); Mt. Climbers x 20 (IC); Block Swings x 15 (OYO); Man Maker Merkins x 5 (IC); Jump Lunges x 20 (OYO); Bent Rows w/ Blocks x 10 (IC); Side Lunge x 10 (IC); Lawn Mowers x 5 per arm (IC); Lunge-and-Twist x 20 (OYO); Overhead Thrusters x 15 (OYO).

Another round of 4 Corners around the church, this time face the other direction and do 10 Alternating Shoulder Taps at each corner. LBC’s as you wait for the six.

Back to the blocks for a repeat of the first set, during which I was asked if I had synchronized swimming in my background, presumably because of all in cadence stuff I do…or maybe it was the speedo and bathing cap I was wearing. I just like to keep everybody together. Also, I’m a little type-A.

Another round of 4 Corners, facing Carmel and 10 jump squats at each corner. LBC’s as you wait for the six.

Clean up the blocks and mosey back to the flag for COT.

Announcement: “Come to the Table,” an F3 event Thursday December 19 from 11:45 to 1:30 at Charlotte Country Club. You can find more details on F3 and F3 Metro pages.

And fight them dicky doo’s!!
