The Bear Back Blast 7.9.18: Wimbledon

AO: Camp Willis (a.k.a. Jones M.S.)

QIC: Grovetucky

PAX: Mogul, Rowdy, Wildebeast, Regulator (FNG), Hack, Rash, Gimpy, Brain, Dimon, Ball Bearing, Bootleg, Mariah, Bo Schembechler

YHC awoke earlier than usual and made final preparations for the beatdown including a review of Bo’s memo regarding the proper disclaimer.  A large PAX assembled around the shovel flag and the disclaimer was given in full (not quite to Bo and Mariah’s satisfaction!)

Mosey to the tennis courts for COP:

SSH x 30 IC

Good Mornings x 20 IC

Willie Mays Hays x 20 IC

Sun Gods x 10 forwards, x 10 backwards IC

Overhead claps x 10 IC

Cotton Pickers x 15 IC

Teach and Rash stretch

Then the PAX divided into groups of 2 for THE THANG:

Since the work-out was titled Wimbledon, YHC felt we needed a tennis themed portion of the work-out called Rush the Net:

start at one baseline, sprint to the net, backward lunge to baseline x 2 sets

repeat with backward duck walk x 2 sets

repeat with forward lunge x 2 sets

Next partners line-up at endline of court 1. PAX 1 runs to endline of court 4, then does 10 jump squats and runs back court 1 as PAX 2 does AMRAP Walking Merkins. Then switch. Each PAX does 2 sets. Then repeat for 2 sets with 20 monkey humpers at court 4 and AMRAP of Mogul’s plank exercises (sans Catalina Mixer’s)

Then divide into groups of 3 for relay sprints from court 1 endline to court 4 endline. Star jumps when not sprinting. All PAX got at least 6 sprints in.

Then the MAIN EVENT:

Bear Crawl Burpee Ladder. On Court 1, Bear Crawl from endline to endline and do 1 burpee, Bear Crawl back and do 2 burpees. All the way up to 10 burpees (modification for bear crawl = crab walk). Mogul and Dimon passed 10 before YHC, so they began a descending ladder of burpees.

A quick “rest” of LBC’s x 20 IC

Broad Jump Inch Worm from fence to fence

Mosey to shovel flag for 5 burpees OYO

Name-o-rama, COT, BOM. We welcomed and named a FNG (Regulator). Wildebeast led us out as we prayed for Ball-Bearing who’s father-in-law passed yesterday. Thanks to the PAX for the push this morning as we resume normal activities following the July 4th week. I’m humbled to lead such a great group of men!!
