Backblast: Flash Bang Friday, Roll With It

23 Pax gathered in the gloom with most there apparently just to make fun of YHC’s inability to back into the parking spot on the first try. And the comments about not being able to see over the seat….Taking it all in stride, boys, all in stride… #stupidlent

After a textbook disclaimer, we began to mosey to the warmarama circle for :

  • SSH’s, 25 IC
  • Imperial Squat Walkers, 15 IC (nice demo, @checkbook)
  • Sun gods, SS, 15 IC, Reverso
  • Chinooks, 16 IC, Reverso interrupted after seeing @lovie’s rendition…and a sneaky way for the Q to stop it short….

Second round of Chinooks after Sun Gods can be challenging….

Mosey to Bus Parking Lot behind the School and beyond into the, gulp, wet grass.

The Thang:

Ten cones were set up approximately 20 yards apart. The first cone had a list of exercises, the last cone had a blinking light on it.

For each cone, the Pax was to complete the prescribed number of exercises, roll once, left or right (alternating at each cone) do the prescribed number of exercises again, stand up, broad jump once, and run to the next cone. For the most part, the Pax got this right.


  • 5 Merkins
  • 5 IC Shoulder Taps
  • 5 IC Plank Jacks
  • 5 IC Peter Parkers
  • 5 IC Parker Peters
  • 10 IC Mountain Climbers
  • 5 Carolina Dry Docks (some started this round–nice work!)
  • 5 IC Makhtar Ndiaye’s (no pax reached this point)

Do the math. IF you stopped at each cone, you completed 100 merkins, 100 each of the 5IC exercises, and 200 Mountain Climbers…..nice work!
