After a week or two of nice spring weather it was time to break out the long sleeve shirts, gloves and hats again for a cool morning in the 40’s.
At 5:30 22 PAX were waiting to start the week and we moseyed to the football field parking lot for the Disclaimer and Warm-up.
13 Imperial Walkers
13 Alternating Shoulder Taps
13 Plank Jacks
After the Warm-O-Rama, the PAX partnered up and found a lifting coupon to share and headed to the Football Field. When we arrived at the football field we were greeted by a playlist of tax/money inspired songs since taxes are due today. The playlist included, Mo Money Mo Problems (The Notorious B.I.G), Money for Nothing (Dire Straits), Money (Pink Floyd), Taxman (The Beatles) & If I Had $1,000,000 (Barenaked Ladies). The workout this morning was a modified version of the Bear Crawl 1-2-3 and is more aptly called Backpedal Bear Crawl 1-2-3-2-1.
After a brief explanation, the PAX partnered up with a shared coupon. Partner 1 performed the exercises listed below (with coupon) while Partner 2 pedaled backwards the width of the field and then bear crawled back to switch with Partner 1. This rotation continued until the prescribed number of each exercise was achieved.
100 Squat Thrusts
200 Skull Crushers
300 Arm Curls
200 American Hammers (double count)
100 Overhead Presses
As the groups finished they met in the end zone for Mary, and with 7 minutes to go YHC called in the 6 and began our mosey back to the flag for a few minutes of Mary.
Chalupa’s brother is opening Fellows, a new breakfast restaurant in Roswell on Green St. Coffeteria will be moved to Fellows this coming Wednesday morning if they are agreeable to opening up a little early for us.
Convergence is on Saturday, April 20th
It’s always an honor to be associated and surrounded by this group of men. I’m overwhelmed by the support and encouragement we all provide to each other. This weekend was a good example, where many F3 guys were at CLC to support Thumper’s fundraiser, two teams at the Ragnar race encouraged and were cheerleaders for the other and every month there’s a new challenge to accelerate ourselves.
