The BackBlast:

At precisely 5:15am, Goob announced it was time to start the beatdown.  Once he figured out there were no FNG’s, he quickly ran through the 5 core principles- highlighted by “led in a rotating fashion by morons like me”.  Pretty sure Manziel was a fan of that statement.  From there, the mosey began.  The Pax did 2 full laps around the parking lot and incorporated high knees, butt kickers, NUR, and carioca each direction.  We circled up in the center of the parking lot to finish the warmup and loosen our old joints.

  • 10 SSH IC
  • 10 Strawberry Pickers IC
  • Leg stretches
  • 10 Agitators OYO
  • 10 arm circles forward OYO
  • 10 arm circles backward OYO
  • 10 Michael Phelps OYO

Goob instructed the PAX to meet under the pavillion for some intimate time with a picnic table.  The beatdown that ensued was as follows:

We performed 3 exercises, 25 reps each, and then ran alternating distances.  The consensus was that it was the best, most complete, favoritest workout of all time…… that involved the pavillion while utilizing picnic tables, support poles, and the parking lot in that sequence.  Anyways, the exercises were as follows-

  • 25 incline merkins
  • 25 tricep dips
  • 25 salsa dips
  • 1 big lap around the entire parking lot
    • ***at some point in this set, Goob turned on music with “crappy volume from (his) phone” as suggested by Manziel***
  • 25 decline merkins
  • 25 lat pulls (violating a support pole of the pavillion or the end of a picnic table- dealer’s choice)
    • **Pudge had a bit to much fun with this one**
  • 25 bench step ups
  • 1 long run down the path to the bridge and back
    • **A heavy dose of reggae music was playing with crappy volume and Pudge began to whine for Metallica**
  • 25 burpees
  • 25 box cutters
  • 25 LBC’s
  • 1 big lap around the parking lot
    • **Pudge began threats of quitting without Metallica at this point**
  • 25 exile merkins
  • 25 low country crabs
  • 25 bench jumps
  • 1 long run to the bridge and back
    • **Goob caved and played Metallica so Pudge would continue to play**

**The coup de grace**

  • 25 merkins
  • 25 tricep dips
  • 25 Freddy Mercuries
  • 1 big lap around the parking lot

Finally, Manziel told the Pax to do big boy sit ups until 6am.
