New Ladderish for 2021

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • QIC: McFly
  • The PAX: Schools, Rain man, Shooter, Butcher, 50Cent, Mr. Woodchuck, Fixit

8 PAX gathered at Thunderdome and I had the pleasure to Q.

As this was my first Q of 2021 I tried to thrown in a ladder. If you think about a ladder you go up and come back down. If you wanted to climb a ladder you could go all the way to the top and come back down or you could be creative and go up a step, come back down, go up 2 steps, come back down, etc. All this means is that I need to do some work on my ladders. I also decided to pull in an exercise from my first Q and name a new exercise.. we will see if it sticks

Your Q did not use a weinke but instead took a photo of the plan on his phone. Of course my gloves don’t work with touchscreen so it wasn’t as great as an idea of I thought.

Pavilion

Mosey to the Pavilion for 2 rounds of:

  • 20 bench dips
  • 20 4 count skier groiners – do a groiner with feet together then go to side and back to center (4 count) then do same for other side.. so essentially these are 10 8 count.
  • 20 Matti Nykänens (yes, maybe something like this is in Lexicon.. I need to check) – like Monkey Squats but grab you under the front of your shoes and keep your arms outside your legs when you squat then straighten up for launch. If you do it right you look like Matti N exploding off the jump.
  • Lap around the pavilion

Burpees

Finished with 20 burpees – just because and to provide a head-start for those participating in the MABA challenge.

COT

Holidays are a great time to be with family but it may also try our patience, especially if you are on week 3 with relatives. Nonetheless we need to always think about how we can be patient and react to change in the right way. We had a lot of change in 2020 and there will always be more to come so we face challenges we can reflect back on 2 Corinthians 4:18 “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

Ended in prayer.
