The Thang

Line up PAX from Oldest to youngest (YHC – 53 to Lutefisk – 25)

Cock Crows to welcome us – 5 Inchworms
Hill (not Circle) of LIfe
Three sets of cones spaced to divide up HoL into 1/3s. All Pax start at bottom. While remaining PAX perform a either Merkins, Hold Plank, or LBCs and next to Oldest (“on deck”) performs Mountain Climbers, Oldest begins by Bear crawl to first set of cones, Jail break to second set of cones and mosey to the top to find 80lb Sandbag. Oldest then carries 80lb sandbag all the way down the hill to remaining PAX and picks up the next oldest. Remaining PAX switch to different exercise and continue until next oldest returns. In meantime, Oldest carries 80lb back up to first set of cones while next oldest bear crawls. At first set of cones, both PAX (oldest and next oldest) jailbreak (but mostly just walk) carrying the 80lb sandbag together. to next set of cones. Then Oldest moseys to top while next oldest carries sandbag rest of the way to top alone. At top, Oldest performs curls with two 25lb dumbbells until next group returns. Process repeats until all PAX are up the Hill. After the initial 25lb dumbbell curls, PAX at top perform either, SSH, BB Sit-Ups or Shoulder Press, rotating with each new group. Due to time had to have two youngest come up together. Collect cones, meet in parking lot for 1-2min of alternating Plank and Side Planks. Time.


Theme of the Thang inspired by 2Tim2:2  “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” 5 Generations represented from the “many witnesses” of those that have come before to those “others” still yet to come. Be faithful in doing your part and pass the torch (sandbag) 😉

BALL OF MAN: Evita closed us in prayer.


Great to have Sidekick back in the mix!!! He has definitely been missed by many. Suspect it is that time of year where all the enthusiastic fitness resolution makers are hitting a wall. 9 is a decent number but compared to normal turnout at Ridgecut lately a bit down. Or…I’m just a terrible Q no one likes :(( Doing LBACs with one arm going forward while other going back not as easy as it sounds.
