VQ, Pain! Cocky steps up!

YHC gave my VQ to a group of 24 PAX and 2 FNG’s yesterday AM. Welcome to Misdemeanor and Formica! The PAX circled up in beautiful Homewood park as usual, and after the regular introductions we got to work.

11. Swimmers (on stomach, raise arms and legs, make swimming motion) – IC (4count-20)
12. Flutter Kicks – IC(4count -25)
Indian Run
After getting all warmed up, PAX counted off 1’s and 2’s for a nice Indian Run. It was up to Slumlord to decide where we would go next. Little did he know that for each location YHC had planned a special version of pain. After deciding on Dawson, PAX lined up for an Indian Run. Unfortunately someone dropped the flag on the way, so PAX did 10 burpies halfway there. Once at Dawson, the team did a hill run.
Hill Run
Pax ran up and down that hill and did a set of exercises at each stop, starting with 10 merkins at top. Then it was back to the bottom where we did as many as possible LBC’s, followed by another run to the top with 25 side straddle hops, and finally 40 American hammers at bottom.
Mosey
Next PAX did a little Mosey back to Homewood park. YHC had to fall back, so Cocky stepped up and led the PAX in a little wall- work while YHC caught up to the group.
Wall
Cocky did a good job of leading the group I hear. Don’t know the count, but I could hear the cadence from down the street.
• Declined Merkins
• Inclined Merkins
• Dips
Pax then went back to the circle for a final exercise.

Circle
• Swimmers (on stomach, raise arms and legs, make swimming motion) – IC (4count-10)

COT

At last it was time for COT and name-o-rama. PAX welcomed two FNG’s Misdemeanor and Formica.

YHC is grateful for this wonderful group of men. In the short time I’ve been coming here, I have made friends and gotten better. What a great way to start a day with such a great group of guys. In my oppinion, it doesn’t get much better that that.
