Beautiful morning for some Monkey Humpers. They weren’t originally on the weinke but when Posse came sliding in on 2 wheels while the rest of the PAX were warming up it seemed the right thing to do. Actually, it was a preceded by the instruction for all PAX to “aim” at Posse while performing the called exercise. Damascus showed up 15 minutes late but we’re so used to that he didn’t get anything special.
SSHs, Imperial Walkers, Calf stretches, weird yoga poses, and the above-described Monkey Humpers
Today was another round of Uncle. For those unfamiliar with the rules, one person is the leader and does the called exercise with a coupon. The remaining PAX use bricks for the called exercise instead. This time I let the PAX choose their own exercise (except J-Woww) as long as it allowed for the use of the coupon/bricks. Once ready, the leader begins the called exercise and does as many reps as possible until exhaustion and then says “Uncle!” Rotate around the circle with a new leader and new exercise.
Exercises included: Curls, Squat Thrusters, Clean and Press, Weighted Squats, Shoulder Presses, Chest Presses, Tricep Extensions, and probably some more I’m forgetting.
There were ALSO a few, uh…less conventional exercises chosen by certain PAX that appeared to be designed to circumvent the rules of Uncle. For example: Captain Morgans (one foot on the coupon/brick and squat with the other leg) are much tougher for the PAX with the bricks. It’s supposed to be tougher for the leader with the coupon. Another example: some sort of one-hand-in-front-of-the-other-merkin-up-and-over-your-brick/coupon thing that J-Woww threw at us. That one got shut down pretty quick.
Two rounds of Uncle was enough, so we moved on to a Merkin/Calf Raise Webb on our coupons. Finally, we wrapped up with a smattering of Tysons, Merkins, American Hammers, American Knock Outs, and a 15 second Have a Nice Day
COT – 6th Man – Posse tried to start the count off first, but J-Woww was to my left and I gave him the “pick a number, non-inclusive, between 0 and 2”. That got the “One!” out of him and thusly Posse got stuck with number Six. Glad he told us his story, though, because his 5+ years in F3 has allowed him to grow in his leadership abilities as well as helping others to grow in theirs.
Lots of mumblechatter this morning, per the usual Diesel/MASH way. When you aren’t running you’re stuck talking to each other. It’s a ton of fun! Give it a try!
YHC needed a nap afterwards, so a nap is what I got. Highly recommended. Back on Q tomorrow at Commitment!
