Weather: 55 and clear
It’s never a good sign when the first thing you hear getting out of the car is, “Hey Manziel, if I’m not out in time start without me.” Even more concerning when that’s said by Crabcakes rather than Trump. Obviously, YHC wasn’t the only one who was ready to prove how and why the Echo Chamber got its nickname. Easter is great and everything but there’s a ton of desserts and booze, hence the above average turnout this morning.
At 5.15 YHC went through the core principles and disclaimers, and then it was off for a 3-lap mozi (the third lap added due to a lack of running planned for the workout) with the normal butt kickers, nur, high knees and all that stuff. With the pax clearly exhausted from the 3rd lap, we grabbed drinks and headed to the Echo Chamber for the COP with SSH, windmills, strawberry pickers and moroccan nightclubs.
The thang was the latest installment of 4 corners. Less counting, more mumble chatter. All 4 corners of the rink had a list of 6 exercises. Timer was set for us to do the exercises for 50 seconds (AMRAP), then you have 25 seconds to use the designated mode of transportation to the next corner, where the clock starts again. Repeat for 24 total rounds. Here were the exercises/modes of transportation:
Station 1: Carolina drydocks, shoulder taps, merkins, overhead claps, flock of seagulls (aka BGBs), Evander Holyfields – side shuffle to station 2
Station 2: Hello Dolly (which really need to be renamed to Hello Goob), salsa dips, lunges, monkey humpers, side lunges, calf raises – crab walk to station 3
Station 3: Leg raises, big boy situps, gas pumps, Freddie Mercury, LBCs, mountain climbers – carioca to station 4
Station 4: Peter Parker, side straddle hops, plank jacks, Parker Peter, burpees (just to keep Posh happy), American hammers – bear crawl to station 1
With this setup, counting reps isn’t necessary and that encourages plenty of mumble chatter. Of course, that’s a double edged sword. YHC barely overheard something about Ripken, age 5 and panty hose. Must explain the love of Richard Simmons, or something. But he did say nice things about the playlist (all from the Tragically Hip), although it was sort of a backhanded compliment – something about it being better than Pincher’s.
We had a few minutes at the end for a Round of Mary but luckily no one did something so outrageous that I can remember it.
