1,500 Reps is a lot of Reps

  • When: 12/05/16
  • QIC: Abraham
  • The PAX: Flamer, Kapowski, Publix, Retread, Fuzzy Balls, Fuse, Short Sale, Peaches, Sooner, Recliner, Beaker, Cousin Eddie, Powder, Suppository, Abraham

15 PAX got up and got out there in the chilly, damp gloom this morning to get better. Mission accomplished. 1,500 reps will do that. The new Master Q, Flamer, asked YHC to come up with something other than the old original workout so this is what you got:

The Thang
Windmills X 15 4ct
Alternating toe-touch X 15 4ct
Humpys X 15 4ct
Mosey up to the top of the ER parking garage.

The Real Thang
Partner up. Partner 1 runs a lap down the stairs, across the bottom of the parking garage, and back up the other stairwell while Partner 2 does as many reps as possible of the exercises below until Partner 1 returns. Then switch off, keeping count until completing:
500 SSH
400 Squats
300 Sit-ups
200 Merkins
100 Burpees
That’s a total of 1,500 reps of exercises and WE ARE SORE.

Being the preachy type, YHC quoted from yesterday’s sermon text, Isaiah 9:6. “For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given. And the government shall rest on His shoulders. And he shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” How’s that for a Christmas gift?

Real lack of mumblechatter, one of the PAX pointed out about 3/4 the way through this thing. And he was right. The PAX were working so hard they had no time, or breath, for the usual smart remarks. That’s a good sign when you’re Qing. It means you’ve thrown out a really challenging workout. This one was simple, but tough. The PAX did a great job but most partners didn’t finish. We ran out of time. YHC has 2 more workouts this week to Q, so it’s time to think up some new pain. See you in the gloom.
