Vegas Vacation

The Scene:
-High 60’s and a light sprinkle…the big stuff held off until we were getting into our cars to head home after a beat down.
-The PAX came out strong rocking the no-sleeves (Prosciutto even rocked a camo Dale Jr. no sleeves shirt—all that was missing was a mullet) in honor of Cheech from F3 Lexington who was hit by a car while running with his PAX the day before. Praying that God will work a miracle for him and his family…we are praying for you sir and the whole F3 Lexington community. #BandOfBrothers
Welcome and Disclaimer were dropped like a hot mic…
Pax took a li’l mosey to the parking lot near Coolidge Park for the warm-up:
Warm Up:
Side Straddle Hop / IC x 15
Mountain Climbers / IC x 15
High Knees / IC x 15
Wide High Knees / IC x 15 (For Gus!)
Side Straddle Hop / IC x 15
Baby Arm Circles (Forward & Backwards) / IC x 15
Moroccan Night Clubs (AKA, how white dudes dance in the club) / IC x 15
Squat Chinooks / IC x 15
Side Straddle Hop / IC x 15
We then set our legs on fire by lunging to almost the end of the parking lot and back…
We then took a li’l mosey back to the Love Shack
The Main Thang:
We were feeling a little inspired today, so we grabbed a deck of cards and assigned an exercise to each suit (Diamonds = Burpees, Hearts = Merkins, Spades = Squats, Clubs = Big Boy Sit Ups)…We then proceeded to flip the cards over one by one (each man taking a turn flipping over a card, calling out the exercise and leading the exercise)…If the card that was flipped was a 9 of Diamonds, that meant, we all had to complete 9 Burpees…if it was a 4 of Clubs, we all did 4 Big Boy Sit Ups…The Jack, Queen, King and Ace of each suit had us doing 11 of that exercise. There were 2 Jokers in the deck and when they got flipped over, we got a little reprieve in a 10 count. We repeated taking turns flipping cards over and executing the exercises until there were no more cards…
Thanks to Rainman and his math skills, we found out that when it was all said and done, we had done 98 reps of each exercise and when you multiply that by the 4 exercises we did, you get 392 total reps.
Other than the 2-10 counts, thanks to the Jokers, the only other break we got was due to the rule I enforced at the beginning which said: whenever a group of joggers ran by, the PAX will execute low plank for a IC 15 count.
Due to our trip to Vegas, where we pulled out the deck of cards, we were only left with time to do 1 exercise to set our abs on fire…So I handed the reigns to Ohms and he led us through some LBC’s (IC x 20)
We bestowed the name Sling to our FNG (Laces Out—RESPECT—gets the award for bringing FNG’s like its his job)…Sling came about become after pursing a girl for several months, she finally agreed to go on a date with him…On said date, he slammed her arm in the car door; breaking her arm! She then rocked a cast and a sling…
Word of the day: Active Participant // everything we are involved goes so much better when we actively engage and participate…Like my mom always said: You are either part of the problem or part of the solution.
