AO: The Pit (Halleck Park, Papillion, NE) // Date: 1.30.21 // Weather: 29 degrees & clear // “Bad Guys” theme // Q: BetaMax // Pax: (25) BetaMax, Wentworth, Rollbar, Lemon Law, Gumbo, Gipper, Firewalker, Skittles, Trench, Hoosegow, gunner, Baby shark, knobs, ear tag, Squeaky Clean, Girl dad, Spaulding, High life, Turnover, KOA, Marv, Rooney, tony tiger, Ferdinand, Triple lap,

YHC welcomed a FNG (Spaulding), delivered a succinct 40-second mission statement, core principles and disclaimer (especially, given the icy terrain) and then everyone departed on a short mosey to Goose Poop Island, where music was blaring.  

Warm O Rama

Upon arrival of the six, YHC began warm-o-rama (after turning down the volume on the speaker) to songs! YHC has always wanted the exercises to match the songs and today it happened. CHECK MARK!

Star Wars – The Imperial March – Imperial walkers

Kung Foo Fighting – Sumo squats

Beastie Boys Intergalactic – Blast off’s

Cherry Bomb – Cherry Pickers

Bad Guy – Cardio dance routine with imperial walkers, plank jacks, mountain climbers and burpees

Run one lap around the pond and return (speaker cranked to full volume, so everyone could hear it around the pond).

Anything you can do, I can do better – Merkin Style

*Awesome, uplifting music played loud to motivate.

PAX were divided into two groups that lined up, facing each other

Group two (on the right) held a plank, while group one did 1 merkin, then group one held a plank, while Group two did a merkin.  Each PAX in each group increased the number by one.

Run one lap around the pond

Would you rather….?

A game of “would you rather” was played.  The PAX formed a single line, facing the bridge the led from the island to the mainland and YHC would call out X – left, Y – right.  Each PAX would run to the appropriate location, where YHC would provide the “exercise”

Example:

Pee in the pool – left, pee behind a bush – right. (Left did 5 burpees, Right did 10 merkins)

Other examples of things called out:

Mixed drinks left, beer right

Salad left, steak right (*salad = child’s pose and steak was merkins)

Dogs left, cats right

Road running left, trail running right

Run one lap around the pond and return to the island

Anything you can do, I can do better – Lunge Style

PAX were divided into two groups that lined up, facing each other

Group two (on the right) held a left lunge, while group one did 1 left lunge, then group one held a lunge, while Group two did a left lunge.  Each PAX in each group increased the number by one.

Mary

Reverse box cutters x 20

Low dolly x 20

LBC’s x 20

Bicycle x 4, then hold on left, repeat on right (repeat cycle 4 times).

*YHC planned on taking the PAX on a tour of Halleck Park, across main street and down the Papio trail, but snow, ice and the possibility of injury prohibited this plan. A Q has to be adapt and roll with the punches.

COT:

Reflecting on the warm-o-rama Billie Eilish song, Bad Guy, men need to not “act” a role (chest always so puffed guy) but be genuine and treat women with love, honor and respect.  A HIM is someone who leads in his home, work and community, even if it’s just leading by example.

White shirt now red, my bloody nose
Sleepin’, you’re on your tippy toes
Creepin’ around like no one knows
Think you’re so criminal
Bruises on both my knees for you
Don’t say thank you or please
I do what I want when I’m wanting to
My soul? So cynical

So you’re a tough guy
Like it really rough guy
Just can’t get enough guy
Chest always so puffed guy
I’m that bad type
Make your mama sad type
Make your girlfriend mad tight
Might seduce your dad type
I’m the bad guy, duh

I’m the bad guy

I like it when you take control
Even if you know that you don’t
Own me, I’ll let you play the role
I’ll be your animal
My mommy likes to sing along with me
But she won’t sing this song
If she reads all the lyrics
She’ll pity the men I know

So you’re a tough guy
Like it really rough guy…
