Twas a quick one, really no mosey, just Toy Soldiers, Weed Pickers, and Exile Merkins in cadence
Have you ever taken a test with “one of those thingies where you fill in the answers on the sheet of dots”
“A scan-tron,” volunteers a PAX with a higher IQ than YHC.
And sometimes if you don’t know any answers, did ya ever just CHRISTMAS TREE that S#!+?!?!?!
Today, we are gonna Christmas Tree our Strava!!!!! And we’re going to do it to live Christmas Carol Karaoke!
A Seven of diamonds, no, Christmas Trees!
Tree outline marked with cones and lights. Station one at the top of the tree, 2 and 4 being the bottom outside corners, and station 3 is the trunk. Mosey out and back for station 1, but you gotta bear crawl between 2, 3, and 4 (across the bottom of the tree.)
Each round of the stations you do a new exercise. The Rounds are
14 Flutter Kicks (4 count)
14 Flutter Kicks (4 count)
This is your ticket out of the suffering for a few short minutes…. And for the rest of the PAX, often time either increased suffering to have to listen to you sing. But we’ll be laughing both at you and with you.
First up with “The 12 Days of Christmas” (Reliant K) – MAACO!
and the hits just kept coming! (turns out Surf and Turf has a decent falsetto!?!)
JINGLE ALL THE WAY
The exercise: “Turbo Man” with Booster
(just like a superman, just add flutter kicks while on your belly holding up arms and legs)
The song: “Jingle Bells” by Skid Row
Every time you hear the word “Jingle” you do 1 merkin. After 3 minutes of this, merkins felt like a mercy.
In the move “Jingle All the Way” everybody hates booster. Now we know why!!!!
YHC had planned to finish the morning with 21’s – but concern for all our lower backs won out… Instead YHC called exercises that would dynamically stretch those glutes and hammies back out: Toy Soldiers, Weed Pickers, Imperial Walkers.
YHC shared the charge from the last page of the Q source.
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. But PUDDING will not sharpen Iron. Feather pillows will not sharpen iron.
We must be Iron to sharpen another man.
And YHC is grateful for the men who show love by sharpening me.
I am not the husband my M deserves.
I am not the father my shorties should have.
I have a lot of work to do.
Thank you, for sharpening me to become the better man that I want my M and 2.0’s to have in their lives.
