Gloom Mountain – 10/2/17
12 PAX gathered in the gloom to kick off their October with some body building. With music already playing as we assembled on the cherished AstroTurf playground, the Star Wars “Imperial March” was this Q’s que to start a quick warm up to last through that piece.
Imperial Walkers > Ray Lewis > Arm Circles each way
Stations were set up along the length of one side of the turf playground. At each cone an index card specified a workout.
2. Pick up rock (overhead)…put rock down
3. Kick backs with bricks
4. Bicep curls with 20 lb dumbbells
5. Flutter Kicks
7. Bent over rows with 30 lb GoRUCK plate
9. Overhead (military) presses with 30 lb dumbbells
10.Sprint to other side of playground and back
11.Side Straddle Hop
With tunes playing, men took up stations and performed each exercise until the man at the SQUATS station (who was heads up and facing the line) chose to say “shift” at which time everyone shifted to the right and took up the next exercise. We did this for about 42 minutes. It was work.
The PAX endured an eclectic mix (visible to iTunes users here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/playlist/jocktoberfest-10-2-17/idpl.u-LdbqzRmuxEAZ4z ) that included Colourmusic, Shannon, Imagine Dragons, Chaka Khan, Joy Division, Iggy Pop, Foster the People, Madonna, Bleachers, and Teena Marie’s “Lead Me On”.
Prayer requests, announcements, and Tinactin prayed over us. To YHC it felt like a fun morning – something a bit different to kick off October.
