12.2.21 Back Blast: The Big Kapowski @ Bayside

Slide Rule is just a good dude…especially for a young whipper snapper. He (among other Bayside HIM) is always trying to keep his fellas engaged, has done a fine job as the site Q on Thursdays and volunteers his time when able (referencing the Squid move where I got to know him even mo better). For those reasons, when he DM’d me asking me to lead a workout it was a no brainer.

I arrived about 6 minutes early to go set up the Tailgater and there were already some PAX there eager to see what your Bird had under his wing. Slide Rule arrived and immediately announced that he made sure to use the restroom before the workout to avoid any possible accidents. All in all we would have 7 in total to learn a bit more about what a horseshoe does.

PAX: Charolais (R), Borland (R), Firing Pin, Birdie, Banana Bread, Slide Rule, BigBird (Q)

0530, disclaimer was given and off we would go for a short little mosey around the lot. Stopped for…

COP: SSH, Grass Grabbers, Hillbilly Walkers and Mr. Ponchos (Michael Phelps)

Mosey back the start for dudes to grab their coupons and would then head to the coupon cache for a little Tabata: 8 rounds, 20 seconds on 10 seconds off and we would rotate between skull crushers and curls. Recover and return to the flag. From there we would mosey to the front of the school for…

Thang 1: Jack Webb of 1 Derkin to 4 dips until we got to 10 and 40. Triceps were already feeling the effects and horse shoes were beginning to protrude. Recover and return to the flag for…

Thang 2: 11’s of Diamond Merkins and Bonnie Blairs. It was here that we were devoid of any music. I asked Borland to pick a genre and he would call out “Jazz!” This was probably the most interesting playlist there is on Pandora as we would get treated with the smoothest jazz you ever heard. I’m sure I’m not alone here when I say never did I feel like I worked hard and felt so relaxed at the same time. Not sure that was the Jazz Borland had in mind but we rolled with it.

Recover and we had 2 1/2 minutes to spare. Time enough to plank it up for the duration of the Soggy Bottom Boys song In The Jailhouse Now. Every time there was yodeling (yup, you read that right…yodeling) we would hammer out some merkins. 0615 and time was called. Might be the last time Slide Rule asks your Bird for a favor…

Circled up for COR, NOR and COT. Made a couple of announcements and said some intentions. Congratulations to Charolais as he could safely announce that he will soon be a first time grandpa. Thanked the Sky Q for this group of men and for the prospect of another day. Closed us out with an Our Father.

Until Next time…
