Escalator Backblast 10.7.2020

Six HIMs made it out to the best lit AO in F3 Louisville thanks to the moon: Uncle Sam (R), F-Stop, Harbaugh, Skirmish (R), Flip Flop, & Mr. Hat (Q).

Disclaimer, mosey down to the boat dock. COP: 50 SSHs IC, 10 IWs, 10 GGs, 10 Toy Soldiers, and some other stretching. Run back to the bball court.

The main thang was The Hightower, a routine inspired by and named after our fallen F3 brother in the line of duty. A police officer in Myrtle Beach, Hightower was killed recently, and this routine is named after him.

The routine is also based on Matthew 5:9 – Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.

The thang is 5 different exercises, 9 reps each. Exercise 1: burpees. Exercise 2: body builders – burpee with a plank jack. Exercise 3: burpee with 3 hand release merkins. Exercise 4: burpee with 3 jump squats. Exercise 5: combination of all the above – burpee with plank jack, 3 hand release merkins, and 3 jump squats.

After The Hightower, we ran up and down the court a few times. Then Lt. Dans: 1:4 ratio of squats to jump lunges. Went from 1:4 all the way up to 10:40.

During Mary, we drew the alphabet (capital letters), did gas pumps, American Hammers, and some plank variations that all the PAX enjoyed.

Always honored to lead. Come on out to The Abyss sometime! You will not find a better view of the stars. We should call it The Planetarium instead.

Hat out.
