Station Work

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 05/10/2021
  • QIC: Slash
  • The PAX: D-Day, Sushi, Deuce, Snowden (respect), Warhead (respect), Penguin, House Party, Mulligan, Air Bags (respect), Bada Boom (respect), Re-Stitch

Stations were the order of the day given YHC’s no-running decree. While Snaggle was not present to wax on about The Ohio State University, Sushi did his best to aggravate YHC by wearing a Tennessee Volunteer shirt. YHC was tempted to respond in kind with 50 burpees but the slate was already full… Off we went.

• Big Baby Arm Circles
• Shin pulls
• Toy Soldiers
• Hillbillies
• Merkins into down dog

Each station: Four exercises at each station, with 30 seconds of work for each exercise. Five seconds to transition to the next exercise. Worked out nicely as we had four groups of three men to work through the stations. Once each Pax was done with all four exercises at one station, the group moved onto the next station. We did two circuits.

Single-leg bridge with leg raise: On your back, plant right foot, raise up on toes, the raise the butt. After raising the butt, lift the left leg up as far as you can. Stay on the toes of the right foot. Raise and lower left leg 10x. Switch legs. Repeat 2x.

Fire Hydrants: 40 each leg. Surprisingly fun.

• Announcements: A bit of chaos here… Without Saigon Sam present, it was a bit random, but YHC noted the Friday haul of goods from the PV Panera Bread to Trinity Rescue Mission and the need for folks to step up and help with that… talk of forthcoming Memorial Day convergence…
• Prayers for those lost and those suffering and all thoughts kept private.

Always a pleasure to Q. Mercy, but there was some serious grunting out there today, really impressive hard work. Well done, gentleman! SYTIG!
