3 A.L.A.R.M. PAX

AO: The Grindstone

When: 03/11/2020

PAX: Cookie, Snake

QIC: False Start

There was nothing but crickets in the slack channel last night for HCs to the Grindstone this morning, so I wasn’t sure what was going to happen.  I convinced Cookie to join me via text, so at the very least the two of us could get in a good workout.  Low and behold Snake made it out, so now we could get things going. It was 52 degrees and no rain (that’ll play into this later on).

Warm-O-Rama:

Mosey around the parking lot and then to our standard warm-o-rama:

  • SSH x 15
  • Weedpickers x 10
  • Imperial Walkers x 10
  • Good Morning x 10

Mosey to the rock pile for a coupon and a good Spotify playlist.

The Thang:

The plan today was to have an A.L.A.R.M., and because there were 3 of us, we could have a 3 A.L.A.R.M, so here’s the scoop:

  • A(rms) – 52 Curls
  • L(egs) – 52 Squats
  • A(bs) – 52 Dolly
  • R(un) – Around the football field
  • M(erkins) – 52

See what I did there with the 52?  Clever huh?  Not really, so let’s kick this off 2 more times to make it a 3 A.L.A.R.M.

  • A(rms) – 52 Skullcrushers
  • L(egs) – 52 Reverse Lunges
  • A(bs) – 52 Flutter Kicks
  • R(un) – Around the football field
  • M(erkins) – 52 Wide grip this time

One last time:

  • A(rms) – 52 Curls (again)
  • L(egs) – 52 Jump Squats (those hurt…i mean felt great)
  • A(bs) – 52 LBCs
  • R(un) – Around the football field
  • M(erkins) – 52 Hand release (those really hurt)

A little bit of extra time so we found a wall:

  • 52 Seconds of wallsits
  • 52 Calf Raises

Repeat 2 more times…to make it 3 of course!

We had 1 minute, Cookie wanted to put something on the wall, so we did Balls-to-the-wall for 52 seconds…Time!

COT:

Convergence happening on 5/2, be there if you can, it’s going to be super.

Prayers for Whiz, Hushpuppy and their families…get better soon fellas!

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Even on low turn out days it’s fun to lead the group.  There’s a bit more chatter and we get to know more about each other.  We did a few after-BD curls of coffee at the Biscuit Barn and it’s great to hang out and chat with like-minded HIMs.  Keeps the mind fresh along with the body.

Until next time!
