So, I spent half the day yesterday trying to figure out a workout for this morning. I went to bed thinking I was satisfied with the workout I had to share with the Men of Oz. When I got up this morning, I was very torn in thinking of running with the workout I had originally planned. I felt it would quickly be boring and not good enough to Accelerate the Men of Oz. So, just like Dorothy, I clicked my heels together and put together something better (IMO).
To get things started we moseyed around and towards the entrance. OddJob comes in tires squealing, so we held an air chair until he was able to join us for the WOR. WOR included: SSH, Weedpickers, Copperhead Merkin, Copperhead Squat, Sun Gods, and Michael Phelps.
Before getting to The Thang, we grabbed coupons and rifle carried across the field to the other side of the parking lot.
Yep, that is Tubthumping by Chumbawamba. PAX SSH until hearing “I get knocked down…” then did one burpee for every time they heard it.
Here is where the big change happened in the workout.
Ten exercises with 50 reps of each exercise
After completing one exercise run down to the farthest island (~100 yards), Bernie back to the middle island (~50 yards), then run back.
- Jump over burpees (jumping over the coupon after every burpee)
- Shoulder Taps (2 count)
- Mike Tysons
- Overhead Press with Coupon
- Gas Pumps
- Carolina Dry Docks
- Goblet Squats
- Flutter Kicks (2 count)
- Jump Squats
Somewhere here, Hustler asked me why I hated everyone. I told him that I didn’t hate anyone but myself. He said something to the tune of the PAX being there for my support.
Most made it to the Carolina Dry Docks before ending the workout.
We then returned the coupons and headed back to the flag.
To almost finish off we did some merkins and plank jacks while listening to Roxanne by Sting & the Police. ‘Roxanne’ = Merkin, ‘Red Light’ = Plank Jack. Hold plank the rest of the time.
With just 2 minutes left, Hustler led in American Hammers followed by OddJob and Flutter Kicks.
Boondock was 6th man and brought some deep insight. I think most of us only heard him confess to his deep admiration for the VW Beetle.
We were also joined by 2.0s (not in Slack) Chicken Fight & Ringpop
