The BackBlast:

YHC knew that we needed a Q for the day last weekend, so Monday I put out a notice that I would grab it with a preblast. I was notified that we were expecting one, maybe even two, FNGs. In the excitement of having new HIMs with which to share the gloom, I forgot to grab the speaker. Doubled back to grab the speaker and returned to the site with a few seconds to spare. We welcomed the FNG, stated the principles, and gave the disclaimer.

Began with a brief mosey and returned to the flags for a warmup of SSHs, Weedpickers, Windmills, Moroccan Night Clubs, and Copperhead Squats. Then took a briefer mosey to the picnic tables near the soccer field.

YHC shared the B.O.M.B.S. to be a partner exercise where partner A does a run to the parking lot entrance and back while partner B does the work; flapjack and repeat. Each partner begins their work where the other partner left off. YHC stated that B.O.M.B.S. were to be: 50 Burpees, 100 Overhead Claps (we really need more options for “O”), 150 Merkins, 200 PlankJacks, and 250 Squats. I realized that “Bombs” and “Bomps” are different words and corrected the plankjacks to BBSs.

PAX finished the work just before time. We moseyed back to the flags and counted off. Name-a-Rama was executed and Winn Dixie was named (Welcome, we’re glad you’re here). Brief COT and then we broke.

Thanks to each of you for allowing me to lead and for working with me as we grow this AO. I am honored to be with other HIMs that want to grow stronger.
