The field is open, time to scrap the plan and get back to basics

Dates: 2019-11-18

Where: vineyard

QIC: Westside

Number of Pax: 10

Pax Names: Jackalope, Beater, Silverado, Tiny Tat, Mouth 2 Mouth, Go Daddy, BoSox, Drumstick, Doddy, Westside

Warm-O-Rama: Moseyed to the field and circled up for:

15x SSH
10x Weed Pickers
10x Toy Soldiers
10x Bent Leg Body Twists

The Thang: Short, sweet, and simple. 2 routines from 2 HIMs back from when YHC was just getting started

When the field is open and you have access to the metal mountain, you have to use it. This routine is simple: 5 rounds of 5 exercises that increase with each round. After the 5 exercises are performed, the PAX run up to the top of the bleachers and then come back down. The exercises and counts were:

C - Crab Cakes (Kodiak Count)
L - Lunges (Kodiak Count)
I - Imperial Walkers (Kodiak Count)
M - Merkins
B - Burpees

Round 1 the count was 1,2,3,4,5. Round 2 was 2,4,6,8,10, etc, etc until Round 5 where we finished with 5,10,15,20,25. Release run around the track for a 1/4 and then we lined up on the goal line for

The Quarter Pounder

This tried and true method of torture has had many variations. We left the cheese off, but went full carnivore on this thing. PAX lined up on the goal line and on the command exercise they performed:

Bear Crawl to 25yds
Do 25x Merkins
Backwards run to the starting goal line

Bear Crawl to 50yds
Do 50x Squats
Backwards run to the starting goal line

Bear Crawl to 75yds
Do 75x Mountain Climbers (Rubicon Count)
Backwards run to the starting goal line

Bear Crawl to 100yds
Do 100x SSH's
Backwards run to the starting goal line

With just under 2 minutes to spare we collected our gear and slowseyed back to the flag to wrap up the morning and enjoy some delicious coffee.

COT: Name-o-rama, praises, and prayers.

Plenty of things to be praying for this morning me, but most of all would be the marriages. Keep all the PAX in your prayers in all stages of their lives and marriages.

Naked Man Moleskin: There was an awesome showing this morning and I'm very glad that I was able to be out there with you men. The mumblechatter was on point, as always but the real shocker was Mouth 2 Mouth and his sweeping declaration that "no games will be played at The Vineyard" when I mentioned Froccer. What!? We may need an overruling on this one, haha! The coffee was delicious as always so I may let it slide....this time. So good that I saved the last bit until I made it home and reheated it so my entire kitchen smelled like warm bourbon.

I'll continue to float around and look forward to the next time I'm allowed back at The Vineyard
