Triple Triple Nickel (wanted to call it the Colt 45 but that’s already in the exicon)

YHC had a really well thought out, elaborate Q planned out, but then thought “that never works.”  So, Plan B: the ole’ Triple Nickel with Burpees always gases everyone.  What if we did three Triple Nickels in the same BD?

Warm-a-rama:

  • SSHs
  • Sun-gods IN CADENCE
  • Reverse Sun-gods IN CADENCE

Note to self: gotta talk to Exile about teaching proper Sun-gods counting form at the next Q School…

 

The Thang:

Triple Nickel #1

  • 5 Burpees
  • run up three stories of stairs
  • 5 Burpees
  • run back down the stairs
  • rinse and repeat for 5 total sets

Mosey over to the trolley tent that is suspiciously close to the hill that goes up to Gunnin Rd…

Triple Nickel #2

  • 5 BIBS (Bonnie Blairs, Incline Merkins, Big Boys, Squats)
  • Run up the hill
  • 5 BIBS
  • Run down the hill
  • Rinse and repeat for 5 total sets

Mosey back to the parking lot by the flag

Triple Nickel #3

  • 5 Mike Tysons
  • Lt. Dan down the parking lot (Lt. Dan description from the exicon: A Squat and 2 Single-leg Lunge combination in ascending rep counts of each, usually up to 10. From Forrest Gump, Lt. Dan “ain’t got no legs.”)
  • 5 Mike Tysons
  • Lt. Dan back down the parking lot
  • Rinse and repeat for 5 total sets

We didn’t quite have enough time to complete the trifecta, but had enough to understand why it’s called the Lt. Dan.

COT:

Several of us on the way to becoming new dads, or dads to even larger families.  Very cool stage of life, and very much a stage of life where we need to lean on the brothers around us.

Got a nice regular south side crew at The Colosseum these days and I love the vibe here.  Everyone works hard; everyone encourages the man next to him; and we have great coffeeteria!
