Late Thursday night I roughed out me Weinke to prepare for my QIC on Friday. I knew what I wanted to do but needed to confirm the route I wanted to take with the PAX, so I got up early (even earlier than usual) so I could get over to the AO and drive the route. Then I arrived at the AO along with 16 of my fellow PAX, one of which was an FNG, to better ourselves on a muggy Friday morning.
Side Straddle Hops x 15 IC
Alternating Toe Touches x 15 IC
Humpy’s x 10 IC
We then moseyed to the right out of the parking lot down to the concrete benches where we did:
Step Ups x 10 each leg
Dips x 15 IC
Decline Merkins x 10
We then moseyed east on 7th Ave NE to get off of campus, hung a right on 8th St NE and then crossed railroad tracks and backtracked to American Honor Ale House. We went up to the top dock and did:
Dying Cockroach x 20 IC
Peter Parkers x 15 IC
Dive Bomber Pushups x 10 OYO
We then moseyed back the way we came and over to the back parking lot behind the science center where we did:
V-Ups x 15 IC
Flutter Kicks x 20 IC
Monkey Humpers x 10 IC
Then we moseyed over to the bottom of the Frye parking deck. As we ran up the deck we stopped at each floor to complete an exercise of our BLIMP
1st Floor – 5 Burpees, 2nd Floor – 10 Lunges each leg, 3rd Floor – 15 Imperial Storm Troopers, 4th Floor – 20 Merkins, Far end of 4th Floor – 25 Plank Jacks
Then as we ran back down the deck we did the reverse but only the burpees, lunges and imperial storm troopers before heading out to the street and then back to the AO.
Once we all straggled in and attempted to catch our breath, we circled up for announcements, count off, name o rama, the naming of our new FNG and the WOD. As we started the count off is when our own Cousin Eddie decided to make his stand. He was boycotting the count off and name-o-rama because it is a pointless exercise if we aren’t going to write up our backblasts, which I have definitely been guilty of. His boycott worked because I am sitting here before heading out for vacation writing you all this backblast, thanks for getting me back on track Cous.
FNG naming: So our FNG happens to be the brother of our very own Flamer. Flamer had put it out on voxer that he would be coming to RAM so the naming process actually started on Thursday evening. Apparently he is a videographer and web designer millennial who is pretty particular about his looks and hair, so we had some great candidates like: Blamer, Bromance, Manzeer, L’Oreal, Pompadour, Herbal Essence, Suave, Paul Mitchell, Silky Smooth, Zohan, NoMoreWood (because both brothers only have girls)
But we ultimately settled on Pantene, welcome to group Pantene!
Our WOD was from Proverbs 13:20.
