The Thang:

This was definitely a KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) workout, figuring we would be dealing with some post Fourth of July malaise, if not outright hangovers, I didn’t want to tax the Pax mental powers too much…

10 Willie Mays Hayes

15 Imperial Walkers


20 Grady Corn

22 Merkins, OYO

25 Side Straddle Hops

The Thang

Started the Pax on an Indian Run out along the sidewalk in front of the church and then along the perimeter to the block pile, where PAX were instructed to grab a coupon and head to the Big Lot. Had staged sheets with a simple, five exercise circuit for easy reference and told them we would simply be repeating that circuit for the duration of one song. But that I had chosen the song. The circuit consisted of:

5 Thrusters

10 Block Swings

15 Curls

20 Flutter Kick Presses

1 Lap (around the ballfield directly behind the white fence)

The song was Whipping Post, from Live at the Fillmore East. PAX all pushed hard. Pikachu may or may not have had a cardiac event. There was grumbling. Crabs asked why I couldn’t have picked One Way Out instead. Quite frankly, with the way YHCs personal life has been going, Whipping Post has been in heavy rotation and One Way Out is way too short.

After the song finished, we returned the blocks to the pile and circled up for a bit of Mary, that sadly escapes memory.



Announcements: 2nd F Lunches

YHC prayed us out.

An honor to lead the small, but hardy group who managed to beat the fart sack coming off of a holiday!
