Weather was cool and dry.

PAX:  Pity the Fool (respect), DQ, Amicus, Jayhawk, Flight Attendent, Birds Nest, Butt Fumble, Viagara (respect), Bohdi, Gilligan, Blowout (Q, YHC)

The EC runners returned, 5:30 AM was seen on a watch, slogan recited and aye’d, dire warnings were issued, and the ruckers rucked away.  The cinderblocks (27-30 lbs) and smaller weights (20 lb kettlebell, 15 lb dumbbells, 5-7 lb bricks, Pity’s junior cinderblock) were introduced.

Warmup:  Side Shuttle Hops, String Rippers, Copperhead Squats, Abe Vigodas, Sun Gods, Cinderblock Halos (it’s a kettlebell exercise, if you want to Google it)

The Thang:

Three exercises, 1 minute each, three rounds.  And three sets of that.  30 second rest while the Q tried to introduce the next set of exercises.

Set 1: Cinderblock Squat.  Bicep Curl.  Variations on Bent Over Rows.

Set 2:  Clean, Overhead Press, Tricep Curl.  Kettlebell Swing.  Ball Hops (this was not popular, and heavily modified).

Set 3:  Block Burpee.  Offset Merkin (one hand on brick, one hand on ground, switch occasionally).  Stationary Lunge while a couple of PAX did a two-block farmer’s carry around the circle, passing the extra block to next PAX.  Doing burpees and merkins in the same set was regrettable.

Playlist was a collection of covers by punk bands:  Free Fallin’ by The Almost; Manic Monday by Relient K; Country Roads, I Will Survive, Karma Chameleon, Sloop John B, Jolene, Sunday Morning Coming Down, Goodbye Earl by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.  Ended with The Final Countdown by Furillo.

Cool Down:  Time was running short at 6:06 AM, so the Freddy Mercuries and Box Cutters were scratched.  10 American Hammers IC, with some PAX doing them with some weight.

Announcements:  Fringe vs Funk on 11/11, Bubba Fett on 12/3.

YHC prayed us out.
