4 Years and counting- “don’t wait to be ready”

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 08/19/2021
  • QIC: Gizzard
  • The PAX: Slash (R), Mervin, Dollar Bill, Shirley (R), Mulligan, Prunetang (R), Saigon Sam (R), Outhouse (R), Airbags (R), Valdez.

YHC had the honor of leading 10 Pax through a walk down memory lane.  Pulling from some of the most infamous and notorious Q’s, I would be remiss not to state my sources from past BB.   The Pax was challenged to figure out who the Q was for each workout routine with the only hint being the year routine was done.  If the Pax guessed them all right, the final exercise would be easier.  Alas, all exercise routines were guessed correctly, except the final one.  Ironically enough, the final exercise routine was lead by Airbags who was there but didn’t recognize his own genius.  So “getting knocked down consisted of burpess and SSH’s..

Chumbawamba – “I get knocked down”  SSH AND BURPEES  28 total burpees 4.5 minutes
A lot of lessons learned in the past 4 years.  The first, if a fellow HIM is telling you what they had for dinner the night before, regardless of what it was, don’t be down wind of him, that is your one and only warning.  There’s a thin line between pushing yourself and insanity, right @Saigon Sam?  Last- don’t wait until you are ready, sometime we just need to go for it and muscle through the pain.
Always a pleasure gentlemen.
