Wild Kingdom Backblast – September 15, 2020

19 PAX: Barn Door, Crab Cakes, Yodel, Blue Suede, Boreland, Sugar, Anaconda (FNG), Cheap Seats, Hawg (respect), Breaststroke (FNG), Zerorez, Nitro, Sprout, King Pin, Convoy, Tonight Show, Thomas, The Curse, Mufasa

Q: Lucky Charms

YHC took the trek out west into the wilderness for his first post and first Q at Wild Kingdom. Following Tonight Show’s directions, I took the 1st left after the 2nd deer I saw and made it to the shovel flags in time to mosey around the area and do a little recon. Barn Door was getting a few warmup laps in ahead of the workout and helped YHC avoid the skunk on a specific section of trail. 

After welcoming our two FNGs and a bunch of PAX (and making Blue Suede park in the grass instead of the last open parking spot), the mission and core principles were stated, and YHC noted he was not a professional, and there was a chance for injury (Mufasa), so everyone should modify as needed. 

Guided by only the light from the stars and a few headlamps, (as man-made light evidently cannot reach the deep recesses of the park) the PAX all moseyed to a far parking lot near the lake for WAR.

  • Tappy Taps x 10 IC
  • Copperhead Squats x 15 IC
  • Sun Gods x 15 forward and 15 backward
  • Moroccan Night Clubs x 15 IC
  • High knees x 20
  • But kickers x 20

PAX all got their headlamps back on and moseyed through the woods to the top of the dam. 

THE THANG (part 1)
The PAX all partnered up. One pair would run to the bottom of the dam, do a burpee and return to the rest of the group. While the pair ran, the remaining PAX would complete one of the following exercises AMRAP until the runners returned. Every pair ran up and down once, and PAX only had to get out of the way of one runner and one creeped-out biker. 

Top of the hill exercises:

  • Monkey Humpers 
  • Flutter Kicks 
  • Merkins w/ Row
  • Sumo Squats 
  • Alternating Shoulder Taps 
  • Squat Jumps 
  • Carolina Dry Docks 
  • Heal touches 
  • Supermans 
  • Monkey Humpers
  • Flutter Kicks

Moseyed to the soccer field.

THE THANG (part 2)
For this round, the same exercises were compelted, but one PAX would lead us in 15 count (some IC) for 3 exercises, and then we would sprint the length of the soccer field, with everyone striving to catch Blue Suede. Thank goodness Mufasa isn’t a real lion, otherwise we might have had to put him down after having a hamstring tighten up. 

  • Yodel lead us in:
    • Monkey Humpers 
    • Flutter Kicks 
    • Merkins w/ Row
    • Sprint length of field
  • Borland lead us in 
    • Sumo Squats 
    • Alternating Shoulder Taps 
    • Squat Jumps 
    • Spring length of field
  • The Curse lead us in
    • Carolina Dry Docks 
    • Heal touches 
    • Supermans 
    • Spring length of field
  • For good measure, since we were on the far end of the field, we completed one more sprint, and then recovered through a Blue Suede-led plank hold. PAX then moseyed back to the shovel flags for Mary. 

Mary

  • 10 count on 5 count off big boys for 3 rounds (lead by YHC, Tonight Show and Convoy)
  • 20 Hammers IC

Announcements/Prayers

  • Shovel flag pass at Wild Kingdom next week. Teaser for who is the next one to carry the torch (a much-needed torch considering the lack of light the AO receives)
  • Queenservice challenge still going on. Go check out how badass these men are and how much weight they are shredding by focusing on their diets. 

COT/Prayer

“The essence of great leadership is influence, not authority.”

No one ran a little faster or got a little better today because of the Q. They saw someone a little faster than them and tried to catch them. The PAX encouraged each other to push themselves as they sprinted up the steep hill by the dam. As HIM, we need to know that our actions speak louder than our words. I was reminded of that this weekend when I continued to try and tell my son a simple command that never stuck. Instead, I decided to just act it out and show him … and of course he did it right away. 

Go out today, this week, and know that people look to leaders like us around us in our daily lives. We are here for leadership in our community. Let’s do the things we want to see in others and find ways to lead by example, not by word. 

Coffeteria followed for those who didn’t have to traverse the entire city of Omaha. 

Aye!
