BackBlast 010 - The AM gloom - Getting s*#! done!

PAX: Roid Rage (Q), MAD COW, Forrest, Pac-Man, Belushi

Standard disclaimer and core principles. Shout out to Dungeon Master! Hopefully you feel better soon!

WARM-O-RAMA

Roid Rage's Q dose of lexicon knowledge:

AM: The portion of the day between midnight and noon when most of what is going to get done does get done.

FUPA: The thickest area of a man's torso between his waistline and his chest

WHISKEY-DICKING: Tentative execution of a Task.

The Sacred Heart bell tower struck 0700 and it was time to start....The PAX started off with a simple "follow me" and commenced a Capri Lap around the AO to get the blood flowing. After the Capri Lap we went right into cadence with some Nancy Kerrigans, followed by some Sprinklers that were seemingly difficult for your trusted Q to get right, but we nailed it at the end. 

The Jump Squat Holds with an Al Gore (hold squat and pretend you're hugging a tree) ended up being just as brutal as the Wednesday morning at Stairway to Heaven. We started with 10 and worked our way down to 5 - we need to keep doing these and get all the way down to 1!!!

SIX MINUTES OF MARY
 

We kicked off the 6MoM with 50X Freddie Mercury's (Bicycle sit ups), 10 second rest, 30X Freddie Mercury's, 10 second rest, 15X Freddie Mercury's, and a final 10 second rest. Straight into Hundreds - 100X 6 inch arm pulses, while on your 6 with legs straight out at a 45 degree angle - make sure the head and shoulders are off the pavement! Did an extra 20X together as a PAX. 

CoT

Our count-o-rama/name-o-rama verified that we had 5 PAX members for the day and talked about all of the stuff we have going on in our life - MAD COW's health checked out and it was great to have him back (thanks for grabbing the coupons and flag!). Forrest is going from second shift to first shift starting tomorrow - so there was a shout for him as well. We discussed the Merkin Challenge and then reminded everyone that we are now on a Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday schedule. 

We ended our CoT with a prayer around Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith - thanking the greater powers out there for the ability to dedicate ourselves to such a great cause and become better men.

Your dedicated Q,

Roid Rage
