C-No C-Lo at the Lair

THE SCENE: What a scene! As I pulled into WC Johnson Park after my road trip from East Memphis, the cloud-dappled sky was just starting to lighten. Birds were chirping. The city was lightly playing Gynt’s “Morning Mood” over the loudspeakers. A waning crescent moon clung to the Southeastern sky as if it knew of the glorious sunrise to come. 

The Lair PAX were running a tad late this morning. There was a scramble to grab CMUs and get circled up by 0530. C-Lo, meanwhile, was nowhere to be seen. 


SSH x25; Daisy Pickers x10; Imperial Walker x15; Hillbilly x15; tempo squat x10

Still no AOQ in sight.

YHC: “Anyone heard from C-Lo?”
PAX: “Nope”

So we loaded up our CMUs and moseyed! 

We stopped at Ryan’s Place Playground for three sets of…

Bulgarian Split Squats: 7 each leg
Derkins: 10

Load up CMUs and mosey to the grassy area in front of the gated community of baseball fields. As we were leaving the playground, here came C-Lo driving by. 

Partner up!

Flora 1-2-3 – like Dora, but no running:
100 derkins (feet on block); other partner holds plank
200 LBCs (CMU on chest); other partner holds feet at 6″ with block overhead
300 goblet squats with CMU; other partner holds bottom of a squat

One partner did a set number of reps of the exercise, then they swapped. 

C-Lo finally came running up when we were halfway through the squats.

Mosey waaaay back to the turf field. 

30 yard diaper carry out and back.

Tank tread:
PAX sat in a line, alternating directions. PAX passed a CMU, a 35# kettlebell, and a 60# sandbag down the line. The last man then sprints to the front, takes a seat, and resumes passing/receiving. 

Mosey back to the shovel flag, which was now planted. 

10 weighted V-ups with the CMUs.

7 PAX Utah, Hello Kitty, Twitty, Nature Boy, Skids, Soybean (QIC), and eventually C-Lo

In order to have impact, you have to take responsibility. Attempting impact without responsibility is just trolling. Take responsibility for the outcome of your community. 

Great time this morning with the ‘ville PAX. The nitro homebrew was the icing on the cake.
