“In order for man to succeed in life, God provided him with two means, physical activity and education. Not separately, one for the soul and one for the body, but for the two together. With these two means, man can achieve perfection.”  Plato…(a long Time ago).

In keeping with the theme of old guys, the QIC played just enough Robert Zimmerman before 7 am to irritate Jumanji. After all, the final four is in Minneapolis this weekend.


Gentle mosey halfway around the field followed up by a circle up for a warm up…

SSH•10, DQ•10 Plank Jacks •10 MP•10

Bear crawl to sideline…Frankenstein to other side 25 merkins/ karaoke back 50BBSU/karaoke back 75 Plank Jacks. Run backwards 100 ssh,

mosey to fence.  balls to the walls…mosey to pool. Ascending derkins box jumps 1-10…mosey to field 1/2 court Red Barchetta(modified). Mosey back to pool for partner burpees/run inside and outside of the pool. Mosey to field. Circle up

ciabatta. 30/10 flutter kicks and bird dogs…

bear crawl to line. Then we did something.

Finally, circle up for a little Tubthumping by Chumba wumba.  27 burpees in all.

FNG Wing It showed well for a difficult workout. Malware posted after a lay-off and the ghost of Osteen showed as well. The QIC is almost positive that Wrangler is under the influence of medical marijuana most of the time. Shake and Bake flew back from Ireland to show the Pax that age is just a number. Bada wore respectable garments today, and Blowout brought it(every workout is a building block to success). Sandcrab yelled at Inside Out for his form and the QIC questioned Pickle’s work ethic today. Tone Deaf urged the QIC to implement burpee penalties but he couldn’t pull off the trick. Housekeeping posted to get the curry out of his system after 2 weeks in India. Check Please continues to show his prowess and Inside Out presses on in spite of Plantar Fasciatis…The Q also failed to ask Lucky Charms for a 10 count so the Pax could all scream TREE instead of three. And Jumanji, well, there are no words to describe his constantly beaming smile..Show and Tell and the QIC count the same so we somehow made it through the Red Barchetta.

The Pax was smoked at the end of the Q and the men who worked out today will be better off(and sore) tomorrow.

No major announcements and there were prayers for McDreamy’s safe travels and comfort for all those in need…
