Pre-blast: No time. Last minute Q in place of Kotter, who had a sick 2.0 @ 3:24AM…
PREP: Whip out an old weinke. Right?
WEATHER: 69 and kinda humid
5:15AM: Go time. 5 core F3 principles. DR = our buddy Puddin’ and Soft Hands from Chicago south side (but Cubs fan, go figure).
WARM UP: Circle up and some stretches top to bottom. Gold Watch was late (I believe the reason, but 5:15 is 5:15 bruh), so was rewarded by watching everyone complete 5 burpees in his honor (just like 2x Wednesday @ Hard Knocks). Mosey around the parking lot toward Target, dodge garbage trucks, nur, and to the traffic circle. Pax stopped on the far side toward the mall and faced YHC on the Christmas decoration stage and completed 20 Sun God facing YHC (worship me, jabronis! Chilipepper faced the opposite direction) and 10 merkins, all in cadence. Complete mosey back to the green turf. Pick up weinke sheet, waters and Bose, and head toward Target, stopping about 3 parking lot rows from the green turf.
THE THANG: STRIPES!
Start at the first island close to the store fronts. Looking east, the parking lot stripes (lines) will be stopping points for assigned exercises – pax will stop at every stripe, every other stripe, or every XX stripe as assigned by Q, and perform the assigned number of a specific exercise or group of exercises. The 2 “islands” do NOT count as a stripe.
Exercise sheet has (13) total sets of exercises. DR guest Soft Hands was asked to pick a number between 1 and 13; this would be the starting point on the established exercise set list – 11 was chosen.
EVERY # STRIPE(S) x QTY+EXERCISE
3 x (10) Overhead Claps
4 x (10) SSH
4 x (15) Crunchy Frogs
1 x (1) Squat
2 x (2) Sun Gods
3 x (5) Imperial Walkers
4 x (5) Merkins
5 x (5) Burpees
4 x (10) LBCs + (10) Leg Lifts
