9 HIM came out on a chilly 32 degree morning for a beatdown not knowing it was twister season too.
PAX: @Ron Swanson @Tiny Dancer @ragdoll @Kwame @Operation @Cosmo @Pancreas @Joey Freshwater
QIC: @Lone Star
Right at 6AM, QIC was anxious to get started, cued up the tunes, and directed the PAX to mosey. Completely forgetting about the disclaimer.
Warm a rama
Lap with Mucho Chesto stops
5 of each: merkin, diamond merkin, staggered merkins. Thanks to @ragdoll’s good math skills he confirmed it was 20 in total.
As we circled up again QIC attempted to salvage the disclaimer but botched it by ending with “…modify at your own risk.”
Imperial Walkers x15
Abe Vigodas x15
Wille Mays Hayes each leg for a few secs
Freddie Mercury’s x10
Iron Mikes x10
It’s time get the coupons!

This was grueling and brought out lots of mumble chatter as it was 40 of each and last were full fledged burpees with a plank jack.
No one was cold after this round well except Joey’s hands.
Partner Up and get into wheel barrel position and planking partner goes from floor up to table bench, merkin, up to table top, merkin, down to bench, merkin, down to floor merkin.
Flapjack parters and then repeat for 2 rounds each partner. Then for fun we split up and carried two picnic tables around the lot. Well @Kwame mainly played the hype man has he was coincidentally “odd man out for a corner of a table” for the carry
Round of Mary of core exercises:
Alabama Prom Dates x20

* @Joey Freshwater did this from his car truck trying to find another set of gloves to warm his frostbitten hands
We’ll need to EH or sign up to Q the upcoming weeks in March. Kwame has next Armory.
We almost forgot to mention the launch of our new Unnamed AO this coming Wednesday at TS/SB park with 5AM start time. Thanks to @Heidi for leading this charge as the AOQ.
Praying for healing for some the PAX and M’s who are sick or waiting on results/tests to get diagnosis.
Also for each other to remain strong leaders at home and work.
YHC has been doing a lot of reading since lent has begun and one of the subject matters has been vulnerability. Make no mistake that vulnerability in men these days can be seen/viewed as a sign of weakness but it is actually a sign of strength and courage as it takes a lot to step up and out and be vulnerable and uncomfortable. Let’s be men who are not scared to step out. We should not wake up and be comfortable with our being as is, there are always ways to improve in so many different aspect of our lives. We need to strive to be better then everyone else, we don’t need to be better then everyone else but we gotta try. That trying is where our character is built and tested.
