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

AO: The Grindstone

When: 03/11/2020

QIC: False Start

PAX (3): Cookie, Snake


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).


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!


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!
