FUTURAMA BB: Let’s Go Fast!

Futurama AO | Memorial Park | 1/9/20

Weather: 45 Degrees! 13 MPH winds. As always, perfect weather when YHC has the Q.

QIC: No Doze

YHC welcomed 29 brothers – some appropriately dressed in shorts for the amazingly mild weather – to the gloom. Provided the disclaimer, recited the mission, and we were off on a half mile mosey two times on the driveway around the colonnade. Circled up at the main flagpole for

Warm-a-Rama

All exercises were done in Red Bull cadence so we got two warm-a-ramas for the price of one:

SSH –20IC
Tappy Taps – 10IC
Moroccan nightclub – 20IC
Dips – 20
American Hammers – 20 IC
SSH – 20 IC

American Hammers – 20 IC
Dips – 20
Moroccan nightclub – 20 IC
Tappy Taps – 10 IC
SSH – 20 IC

Mosey to the esplanade at the bottom of the steps for

The Thang

Split into two groups:

Group 1 performed the following:

Run to first level of stairs and back: 10 Monkey Humpers/first level and back: 5 burpees

Run to second level of stairs and back: 20 Monkey Humpers/second level and back: 10 burpees

Run to third level and back: 40 monkey humpers/third level and back: 20 burpees

Group 2 performed the following:

Run to first level of stairs and back: 10 Merkins/first level and back: 20 squats

Run to second level of stairs and back: 20 Merkins/second level and back: 40 squats

Run to third level and back: 40 merkins/third level and back: 80 squats

Once you finished all three levels, switch to the other staircase. Some pax probably completed each staircase twice. YHC called Omaha before performing his last set of 80 squats.

We don’t do 6 minutes of mary at Futurama, so closed it out with a Redbull-cadenced COP:

SSH –20IC
Tappy Taps – 10IC
Dips – 20
American Hammers – 20 IC
SSH – 20 IC

COT:

Completed name-a-rama for what YHC believes is a non-convergence AO record number of Pax.

No announcements, various prayer requests for family members and friends battling illnesses. Prayers for PAX on the DL. Prayers of thanks for family members finding new employment.

YHC noted that my theme for 2020 is “simplicity.” Encouraged pax to find meaning in the simple things. Last night I told my 2.0 “I love you.” She sighed. I asked her if I said “I love you” too much. She responded, “No, dad. It feels great when you say I love you.” Take time to do something simple for the ones you care about. Even a small thing like saying “I love you” can make them feel great. Take time to reflect on the reaction. Find meaning in that simple interaction.

YHC closed the COT with a prayer.
