YHC chose to utilize this beautiful Saturday morning at StinkHill to celebrate his wonderful daughter’s birthday. Born 21 years ago at 10:10am today, Noel is, as are all children to their fathers, a blessing in my life.
(For obvious reasons, all exercises in warmarama were performed with 21 repetitions.)
Good Mornings (Couldn’t think of a much better way to start the day)
Cheerleader (Since Noel is a cheerleader at Va Tech, YHC could not pass this one up when I ran across it in the Lexicon)
(Start in SSH position, go to the up SSH position, on the down go into a squat and bring hands to a point below the knees and repeat.)
21s (Again, for obvious reasons)
(In unison PAX does 2-count side straddle hop and counts reps 1-5 out load. Reps 6-21 are all mental and everyone must stop together at 21. If anyone stops early (kudos to Cowboy his premature stoppage) or goes over Q has PAX perform penalty workout of…
Slaughter Starter… Plus One
(21 Burpees OYO)
Mosey to the pull-up bars for:
Nicole– Pax completed a 20 minute AMRAP of the following: Run 400m/Pull-ups AMRAP Rinse and repeat until timer sounds
Overhead Claps 21 OYO/Run 100m Rinse and repeat until YHC had enough.
Everest– Lunge up StinkHill one step, perform 1 squat, lunge up with other leg, perform 1 squat, repeato to top.
Lindsays– 30 reps of Merkins, run 50m, and 10 reps of Big Boy Sit-ups OYO, run back 50m then subtract 5 reps from the first exercise, run back 50m and add five reps from the second. Repeat OYO until you have 10 reps of the first exercise and 30 reps of the second. The sum must always add up to 40.
Upon completion we were but 2 minutes short of the 60 allotted and thus made a beeline back to the flags for COT
YHC then shared the following verse that seemed most appropriate for this special day:
3 Children are a gift from the Lord;
they are a reward from him.
4 Children born to a young man
are like arrows in a warrior’s hands.
5 How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them!
He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.
Keep giving it away men… And Happy Birthday Noel!
