A promise of “No Burpees”

A winter drizzle did not keep the PAX away from the Princeton AO.  WallE led the PAX through a celebration of 2021 (fingers crossed).
20-21 = 20 reps of 21 different exercises (The promise of “No Burpees” was not believed by anyone!)

Warm up:
1) Tippy Taps / Windmills
2) Circle Arms / Arm Circles
3) SSH

Thang:
Each round consisted of 3 exercises – performed as 2 sets of 10 reps each.  Between rounds we ran a loop of the parking lot.
4-6) Merkin, American Hammer, Forward Lunge
7-9) Shoulder-tap Merkin, Dying Roach, Bonnie Blair
10-12) Walk-up Merkin, Freddie Mercury, Backward Lunge
13-15) Hand Release Merkin, Big Boy Situps, Bobby Hurley
16-18) Diamond Merkin, V-ups, Squats
PAX choice – Carolina Dry Dock, Plank, Heisman Squat

Mary:
19-21) Hello Dolly, LBC, Rosalita

Since we had ample time left we
– mosey’ed to the colosseum for 10, each, REAL SLOW (6 count down and 6 count up) Squats and Merkins. (Introduced to YHC by Vitamin-D @ F3 Grandstrand)
– Route 66 with Imperial Walkers (Mountie’s example had us all doing the second half with squats)

COT:
Shared support for PAX fighting depression.  As social distancing continues through the winter into its second year this is a real concern for each and everyone of us.  We re-iterated that each one of us was only a phone call away from a brother for a run, walk or just a chat.  Don’t wait to be asked – Don’t assume the brother next to you is fine – Be there for each other.

YHC suggested a word for 2021 for the Princeton AO = “GIVE”
– where we GIVE back to the community around us.
– where we look for ways to GIVE-it-away, suggestions were:
– Aim to bring in an FNG (suggestion 1 every quarter)
– Expand Princeton to other AO locations – A Q could assemble us at a new site, each a potential new AO.
– Make the Stadium (SOT) and Friday Ruck regular AOs – announced on the Nations’s website and possibly with rotating Q.- New locations for 2nd F !

Keep showing up,
WallE
