The PAX didn’t choose the Jug Life. YHC chose it for them. The Jug-0-lug has returned!
With jugs in hand, the PAX moseyed up the street to center on a light pole in front of the baseball field. We set the jugs down (temporarily) to do the warm-up that consisted of:
10x Weed Pickers
10x Sun Gods (frontwards and backwards)
OYO Michael Phelps
PAX Lined up at the start of Route 66 and grabbed a partner. As a team, each partner runs from light pole to light pole up to the roundabout and then down to the base of the Grapes of Wrath hill. One partner runs with two jugs and does 10x curls, 10x presses, and 10x rows while the other partner does SSH’s. The partner doing SSH’s then grabs the jugs and they both run to the next light pole, alternating in this fashion until the end of Route 66.
Once completed, partners ran up the Grapes of Wrath hill to our 2nd location, the bus lanes. Partners lined up at the bus zone for some Dora Jug-O-Lug. 1st exercise was 100x arm raises with the water jugs to continue the arm burn. 2nd exercise was a standing American Hammer (Kodiak Count) with a water jug to 200 reps. 3rd exercise was the Genuine – a squat while extending your arms as you squat down holding the jug – to 300 reps. Partner runs to the end of the first set of bus lanes (ending at lane 11) and back rotating until total reps reached.
With legs screaming and only 5 minutes left YHC instructed the PAX that we needed to get back to the flag. Release Run time! Doesn’t matter how they get there, jut that they do!
Back at the flag we all circled up for 1 last painful minute of Genuine squats.
Name-o-rama, 6th man (Go Daddy), Praises, and Prayers
Naked Man Moleskin:
This morning was filled with so many reasons to fartsack and yet 8 brave souls decided to show up and get stronger together. It was colder, it started raining, it was an emotional weekend for many, and there was nothing but rain in the forecast for the week.
LizardKing gave us all a little more information about the family of Ellie Pruitt and it was hard to hold back the tears. So much tragedy for that family. Prayers for their continued support and what the community has done for that family.
GoDaddy gave probably one of the most lively 6th man introductions that I’ve witnessed providing very detailed information including his favorite number and ice cream.
Mouth 2 Mouth praised his ice cream choice over the weekend, Bourbon. Coming to a COT near you!
We closed out the morning with a little whiskey coffee to shake things up and PAX got to keep their jugs! Until next time men.
