Trivia Question “What is the month and year of the first official Thanksgiving?”  

The PAX showed up early for a history of Thanksgiving…so we warmed up in the following manner:

11 – SSH…in cadence count

16 – Imperial Walkers

21 – Hillbillies

11 – Burpees – OYO

16 – Cotton mills

21 – Side Straddle Hops

11 – Merkins

16 – Sun gods    (hand extend horizontally shoulder rotation – LG circles with hands)

21 – Prayer Squats

Then we moseyed off to 6 preplaced pain stations and worked together to complete one circuit.

STATION 1:

11 – BURPEES

16 – PLANK JACKS

21 – MERKINS

STATION 2:

11 – JUMP SQUATS

16 – PRISONER GET-UPS

16 – CAROLINA DRY DOCKS

21 – CRAB CAKES (right hand to left foot from crab walk position)

STATION 4:

11 – WWI SIT-UPS

(legs straight arms straight above head as you raise up – toes)

16 – DIVE BOMBERS

21 – COPPERHEAD SQUATS ( slow 3 count down)

STATION 5:

11 – MT. CLIMBERS (in cadence 1..2..3..that’s 1)

16 – TTP   (Toe Touch to Plank and Inch Worm back up)

21 – HAND RELEASE MERKINS (hands off ground at bottom)

STATION 6:

11 – LT. DANS

16 – PARKER PETERS (2 COUNT)

21 – PRAYER SQUATS

 

That was such fun. Q’s in training were huffing and puffing to call out their next set of exercises!

Hammer had some fun at the rock pile in store for us!

Clyde slammed down some plank jacks in cadence!

The Body, Swiper, Big Dipper, and CheckMate all shared additional pain. YHC apologizes for the limited details as this BB was post after much heckling a week late!!!

We have some budding Q’s however our last Virgin Q 4/10 promoted to 12 gauge now demoted back to 4/10 for not showing up in a month! Hope Hammer does not disappear after his VQ on Thursday(no running)

Prayers for families, thanks for many blessings, travels, Job hunts,
