Big day for Hamburg. Preparations for the Hamburger Festival was in full swing as the sleepy town of Hamburg prepared for a crowd of up to 40,000 people.
The Grill attracted a more modest number of 6 PAX.
YHC had planned to do the Loredo but after hearing the LV guys crying about not being able to sit down after it, I thought better of it considering we wanted to be able to function for the Mule workout on Labor Day.
Warm-a-rama: mosey to the basketball court for SSH, Abe Vigoda, Grass Pickers, Best Stretch Ever, Mountain Climbers, Monkey Humpers, mosey back to shovel flag with Butt Kickers, High Knees, and Carioca.
1/3 of Loredo: two rounds (instead of the prescribed 6 rounds):
- 24 Squats
- 24 Merkins
- 24 Walking Lunges
- Run lap around field (probably a little less than the prescribed 400 meters)
In honor of Hamburger Days and also strategize for the Grill’s contribution to the Mule, we did a “Burger”
B — Bridge of Hate (we didn’t actually do this but planned it out for the Mule)
U — Up Downs (high knees, on Q’s signal chest to ground and bounce back up) ~ 10 drops
R — Rockanburpees (partner up; low plank facing each other; play rock/paper/scissors, loser does a Burpee, winner or tie does a Merkin) 10 rounds
G — Gwerkin (Parter 1 plank; Partner 2 holds P1’s feet in goblet squat position; Merkin/Goblet Squat X10 then flapjack)
E — El Capitan (Deep walking lunge; both hands go fully to ground in inside front leg) X 10 steps each leg
R — Railroad Tracks (run out ~ 10 yards, plank, next man hurdles and then planks) continue in Indian Run fashion until we reached the playground — ~ 80 yards
At the playground:
- Pullups AMRAP
- Underdogs (10)
- Dips (15 IC)
- Step Ups (15 each leg)
Mosey around the field back to the shovel flag/bandstand
6 MOM: Dealer’s Choice — Reverse Crunches, Partner leg push downs side and forward, American Hammers, 6 Inches, WWI, Heels to Heaven, Freddie Mercury
COT: ~ 7 PAX plan to participate in the Mule workout on Labor Day, Prayers for Pocahontas’s family.
4 PAX jumped in a clown car to go to Four Twelve coffeeteria since we knew streets were already blocked off and parking was scarce. Tuck pulled a starsky and joined us. It was great to see him after his return from his military training exercises.
