The BackBlast:

Intro:

YHC threw himself on the Q Sheet again for this week, with a most-devious beatdown planned.  Likewise, YHC had been EHing guys on Meetup all week, and (much to his chagrin) an FNG (Tony Johnke) was the second to show up.  With PAX rolling in hot, YHC got under way (albeit with no #shovelFlag*).

Warm-o-Rama:

  • CH Lunge (left) x 15 (IC)
  • Merkins x 10 (IC)
  • CH Lunge (right) x 15 (IC)
  • SSH x 20 (IC)
  • Imperial Walker x 15 (IC)
  • Mtn. Climber x 15 (IC)
  • Runners’ Stretch

At a certain point, a series of #friendlyWalkers were strolling by.  YHC issued a “good morning” which was met with an equally enthusiastic “good morning back”, at which point YHC called for 5 burpees OYO (this would come back to haunt us later)…

We moseyed around the block for…

COT:

  • TWO FNGs today – Welcome Ponzi (FNG Tony Johnke – Respect!), and Hawkeye (FNG Justin Nabity).  We’re glad you joined us.  We’re better because you’re here, and hopefully you’re better because we’re here.

YHC took us out.

Naked Man Moleskin:

  • * Ditka – ALWAYS bring the #shovelFlag; you’re site Q, bruh…
  • ** It was around this time the #notSoFriendlyWalkers came back around for a second “good morning”, knowing YHC dished out 5 Burpees OYO on the previous verbal exchange.  Pretty sure this could be considered “trolling”.
  • Excitebike – always great to see you
  • Go Blue! – Solid Work today
  • Ditka – Stud status as usual
  • Tri-Delt – I know you moan about “rinse and repeat”, but you keep leading the PAX, so it can’t be that bad, right?  Way to set a strong tone, brother!
  • Ponzi and Hawkeye – It was great sharing this time with you guys.  Keep coming back (if you can, Hawkeye).  Let’s build this thing of ours together!
