Number of FNGS: 0

FNG Names:

QIC: Goob

The BackBlast:

Weather- 53 and breezy

Goob rolled up at about 5:14, laced up his shoes, checked on the tower availability, and joined the circle where chatter was high.  He began the workout at promptly 5:15:27… not exactly an on-time departure.  Oh well, we forge ahead.  The 5 core principles were stated and the mozy began.  Defib had a commitment from an FNG but Goob’s reputation scared him away.  During the mozy, hope of the FNG was temporarily restored as a car pulled in the parking lot on 2 wheels.  That excitement quickly dimmed as Dasani nearly ran the PAX over on his way to park his car.  It was noted mid-mozy that Dasani was paying his penance with burpees in the parking lot.  Th e mozy consisted of high knees, butt kickers, more high knees, NUR, and a side shuffle in each direction.

Once back, the PAX circled up to perform 10 SSH IC, 10 Strawberry Pickers IC, leg stretches, agitators OYO, Michael Phelps OYO, and arm circles OYO.  Goob then ordered the PAX to the base of the tower.  At the base, Goob laid out the plan- 4 exercises in a round, 25 reps of each exercise, culminated by a Jailbreak.  Once back at the base, we would plank for the 6.  Four round were planned, and if the PAX were spry enough, a bonus round.

The Thang:

  • 25 merkins
  • 25 dips
  • 25 mountain climbers
  • 25 step ups
  • Jailbreak
  • 25 decline merkins
  • 25 reverse dips
  • 25 LBC’s
  • 25 salsa dips
  • Jailbreak
  • 25 incline merkins
  • 25 dips
  • 25 skydivers (2 sec pause at top)
  • 25 jump ups
  • Jailbreak
  • 25 reverse hand merkins
  • 25 reverse dips
  • 25 Parker Peters
  • 25 calf raises
  • Jailbreak

The Pax finished in record time.  Their reward?  A bonus round on the Bing deck.  A timer was set- the objective was 2 consecutive minutes of pull-ups (either hanging on the ledge or modified using the railing).  Since it’s Christmas, everyone gets a Christmas bonus.  Back at the base of the tower and three minutes to spare, everyone was gifted 25 exile merkins, 25 side-to-sides, and 25 lunges.  The chatter was minimal until everyone got excited for their Christmas bonus.  In 3 minutes, they Pax essentially hit every one-liner from Christmas Vacation.  And just like Cousin Eddy proclaims about the jelly of the month club, this workout will be the gift that keeps on giving.  Enjoy your arms today men.
