We got hosed

13 grizzled PAX broke into the Asylum this cold and windy morning. A little surprised at turnout since last week we had temps in the 60s and numbers were low and this morning with the air feeling like 20° the guys were pouring in. I’ll take it!

DiCCS provided and we’re off

Warm Up:

Mosey to the traffic circle then switch to a burpee run down the front of the Target building taking a left at the retaining wall. It took that long for everyone to get one burpee in so YHC called for another round as we slowly circled the parking lot. YHC finishes the last burpee and we circle up for:

  • SSH x 20
  • Imperial Squawkers (the Squat in the middle threw Smokey, so I think he only did 14) x 10
  • Calf Stretch (plenty of groaning and other noises in honor of a certain Asylum Site Q who happens to like this stretch a little too much)
  • Mountain Climbers x 20

Mosey to Hickory Tavern for some toys

The Thang:

YHC has been dealing with shin splints for a while and with the doc strongly suggesting to cut back on the running I was looking for ways to lower the mileage but still make sure everyone got a good workout. Enter: The Hose. Rubbermaid (and Tupperware?) acquired a lengthy piece of fire hose, maybe 25 feet long, and around 80 lbs that we put to good use

Partner up! One pair grabs the hose and drags it the full circle down to the Brooklyn Pizza and around the top parking spaces back to the Hickory Tavern. Remaining PAX work their way through the following, switching exercises each loop:

  • Merkins
  • Step Ups
  • Dips
  • Lunges
  • Big Boi Sit Ups

Boy, that hose was no joke. Shop Dawg and I go 2nd with the hose and while the first half didn’t seem so bad, man that return trip was killer. Get back to the Tavern and everyone’s doing LBCs. Some Q Jacking going on I guess? Nobody wanted to do the Step Ups? Too bad, Step Ups are next. Everyone finished the hose loop and suddenly Deadwood is here? Apparently he forgot Asylum has a 0515 start, not 0530.

Setting the hose aside (for now) YHC grabs a few more items out of the truck. Two 50 lb weights and three 40 lb concrete buckets. With the same partners as before:

  • P1 – Choose one
    • Run to the Brooklyn Pizza wall and back
    • Farmer Carry two 50 lb weights
    • Farmer Carry two 40 lb buckets
    • Broken Farmer Carry one 40 lb bucket
  • P2 – Exercises (100 each collectively per team)
    • Mike Tysons
    • Squats
    • LBCs
    • Speed Skaters (2 = 1)
    • Flutters (2 = 1)

A few finished early and did a little repeato. Once the last team finished up we did a little more hose work. New partner do the following exercises in between:

  • Jump Squats
  • LBCs
  • Romanian Dead Lifts
