What’s that smell???

What’s that smell???

Workout Date:





Snips(R), Flash, Baggage, Manziel(R), Valvano, Headgear(QIC)

The Thang:

AO: Warthog

Conditions: Muggy but maybe a little cooler than usual.  78 degrees; 92% humidity

Scoping out the AO the evening prior taking my 2.0 home from gymnastics practice and I see a figure running through the dark that can only be Flash.   I had to scope out the pallets of bricks first though to be sure they were there and thought I would cut Flash off on his way home but he was no where to be seen.   Now that he’s moved into his new pad near the Mothership, there have been many Flash sightings by PAX and apparently he doesn’t own any shirts.  Anyway, rolled into the AO with plenty of time for some ruck wrapping and Snips rolls in shortly after.  Flash pulls in to complete the Prius Army and then Baggage, Manziel and Valvano rolling in right at 0530.  Wow…if we change this start time back to 0515, he might not be able to make it on time!

1 minute warning

Disclaimer…that the Q doesn’t have a plan.

Mosey to the far corner of Valor park near the bricks.

The PAX found a stack that wasn’t covered in ants…we talked about Goldbergs spider bite and his new Spider-Man powers and then each grabbed two bricks.

At each corner the PAX would complete exercises for reps of 15 on my count and then overhead carry their bricks to the next corner going clockwise.

Overhead press x15

Curls x15

Front Raise x15

Side Raise x15

Tricep Extensions x15

This was repeated for each of the 4 corners.

Merkins x22 OYO

We attempted to mosey to the movie theatre going down Deville St but as we got closer, there was a horrible sewage stench that turned us back.  This was no joke and I took the PAX away from Deville the long way around back to the fountain just to get away from it.

At the circular fountain on Nevers St and Howard St:

StepUps (on the benches) x100

Box Jumps (on the fountain wall) x10
