Initially, 10 PAX gathered in the parking lot and proceeded to mosey, rucks on, until they couldn’t help but notice the unmistakable headlights of several incoming PAX who shall remain unshamed. For now. Though it’s worth noting that the three late PAX may-or-may-not live in the neighborhood directly adjacent to the AO… Anyway. After a mosey down one of the hills, a Bernie back up, our faithful heroes proceeded to the flag where they planked, recited the mission and core principles and disclaimer, and away we went.
WARMUP: 15 Imperial Walkers, 15 Toy Soldiers, Sun Gods, Michael Phelps
THE THANG: Five compound movements, four laps
Forward lunge chops (width of the parking lot);
Ruck swing-chest press (AMRAP);
Reverse lunge with curl (width of parking lot);
Squat-to-high pull (AMRAP);
Side lunge to clean (width of parking lot)
–PAX utilized their ruck or a sandbag to complete the exercises
–after each exercise, PAX did a lap of the parking lot’s inner islands, picking up the Six and then proceeding to the next exercise with little-to-no rest between activity. It prompted one PAX to question: “why is Green Mile so angry?” A good question.
ANNOUNCEMENTS: Speed for need 5k fundraiser Nov. 18
COT: This weekend and news of our brother Charmin got me thinking about how important is it to be open with those around us — how we all need help, none of us can do this alone, there is strength in needing others, but that others can’t help if they don’t know what’s going on. So I usurped the Six man to wax meanderingly about my musings. Prayers for Rick, Casey, Charmin, Jar-Jar, and others.
