Trip to the Zoo

It was a crisp 45 degrees outside as the pax started rolling in. Where normal clinic numbers are well above 10, today was a few less due to the fear that the workout would be more then they could handle.

We started with a warm up of;

25 IC Side Straddle Hops. About 15 in Bench Warmer decides to join us, he had gone for a slow jog and was disheartened when the four FIA girls lapped him for the 5th time. Still struggling to get those kills....

25 IC Monkey Humpers

25 IC Copper Head Squats

The Thang:

The Pax was eager to find out how many animals I could fit into a workout. So we went to the edge of the soccer field where YHC kindly placed enough blocks for all of the AO's combined.

Grab a Block 50 Curls, then with the block Gorilla walk with block across both fields to where the bench with bricks was located. (A Gorilla walk is feet spread, hands together, moving both hands, then both feet.)

At the bricks, swap blocks for bricks. 50 overhead claps, orangutan walk with bricks back to the other side. (Similar to the Gorilla walk, however your feet are together and your hands are spread.)

Drop bricks. 50 Merkins, Bear crawl to other side of field

Grab blocks. 50 overhead press and Gorilla walk with block across field.

Drop block pick up bricks. 50 triceps extensions and you guessed it orangutan walk with bricks back across field.

Drop Bricks. 50 Big Boys and crab walk to other side of field.


The pax needed a few more moments of animal power.

Today the Pax was challenged. Noah did something that seemed completely crazy to those living in the same time period. He built a giant boat and started bringing animals onto it two by two. Today I handed each remaining pack a F3 business card and ask them to go find their pair. not only to find someone to give the card to. But to also write their number on the card and post with their new brother wherever he decides to post.



Little did the Pax know that it was Groundblind's idea to exercise on the long double soccer field instead of the single football field. It was better that way!

After missing part of the warm up Bench Warmer was excited to work out. He managed to talk up the work out the night before and then when it came time to exercise he got in his car and drove away shouting "So long SUCKERS." He has since been nominated and declared DHOTW.

Most of the Pax remained mighty quiet. However there were a few moments of excitement.

During the first orangutan walk Lil sweet bolts by YHC practically standing saying "its easy when your short and don't have to bend your legs"

Bowtie and Woodchip modified a few times saying when I get that old I will modify too..... but Paperboy and Paula Dean didn't modify, I guess that is why they get RESPECT.

Stepshow was very encouraging, as always making sure he separated himself from the dickhead Bench Warmer.

At the end everyone expressed how much they loved the workout and that they want me to bring it to a Convergence soon.
