Noting a brisk note in the air the night prior, YHC decided to bring back an @F3Jackson favorite…..PAIN POKER.
Arriving at The Vulcan around 5:15, YHC observed what looked to be a disrupted ant hill of PAX progressing from parking lot onto The Vulcan green. Many of the PAX had seen YHC’s tweet of a deck of cards from the night prior and the anticipation had surely caused some sleeplessness with some.
Circle up and YHC asked for a count off to confirm what looked to be a NEW RECORD for Vulcan PAX. Sure enough, 32 PAX confirmed including 7 FNGs! New high water mark! Time to bring the PAIN!
SSH (4ct) x 30
Squats x 30
Merkins x 30
Flutter Kicks (4ct) x 30
Supermans (45secs) x 2
PAIN POKER rules:
PAX preform all exercises together. Number on card dictates number of reps, face cards progressing up from 10 (i.e., Jack is 11, Queen, is 12….ACES ARE ALWAYS HIGH!)
Spades=Burpees Clubs=Hand Release Merkins Hearts=Big Boy Situps Diamonds=Squats
After completion of assigned number of reps, PAX run 40yd gasser (if number on card 10 or greater) or 60yd gasser (if number on card 9 or less).
Rinse and Repeat for +/- 35minutes…..MEN WENT TO WORK!!! Lots of pain spread across the PAX faces as we progressed through the deck. Big time Kudos to Cocky, Peanut, Dispatch, and Namaste for leading the pack on most of the gassers! Got through about half the deck and YHC ensured the proper placement of plenty of face cards….especially those showing spades!
Back to circle for:
Dive Bombers (4ct) x 15
Flutter Kicks (4ct) x 45, mixed in “easy opens”
Quick Nameorama and welcome to FNGs, Peaches, Needle, Strip Search, Breach, Neuter, Hugh, and Spew!
