A PAX of 5 men with an average age of 41 left the woman, Bob Villa, children and Cinderella in the comfort of their fartsacks to fulfill a lifelong dream of completing a ring of fire challenge lugging 5 gallons of fermented beverage around the 2 mile Shelly Lake loop.
YHC and MacGruber had planned a four man team challenge but quickly adjusted when it became apparent that Fat Tuesday is French for juvenile boys can’t handle sub 20 degree temperatures.
SSH x 25, Mountain Climber x25, Windmill x 15. Done, we are old, no warm up can loosen these muscles.
Each PAX grabs one of the four 5 gallon kegs weighing approximately 50 pounds, odd man out gets the 40 pound kettle bell.
Run up the hill towards the 2 mile loop.
The challenge, carry your new best friend around the lake stopping every quarter mile for additional fun. At each stop new PAX takes over the kettlebell.
Stop 1: Curls with kegs x 20, Squats x 20 (fingers are numb as YHC left kegs in car overnight)
Stop 2: Shoulder press with kegs x 15, Mountain climbers x 20
Stop 3: Bench press with kegs x 20, Merkins at 20
Stop 4: Squats with kegs x 15, Diamond Merkins x 15 (feeling starting to return to fingers)
Stop 5: Curls with kegs x 15, Squats x 20
Stop 6: Shoulder Press with kegs x 15, Mountain climbers x 15
Stop 7: Bench Press with kegs x 20, Merkins x 20
Complete loop and finish with jog to parking lot.
-Duff now hates kegs but still appreciates the hoppy goodness they hold.
-Shaggys’ arms now hang below his knees.
-Maize wanted the record to show that his keg weighed 52 pds and when his turn came around to lug the kettlebell it weighed 45 lbs.
-Prayers for Dufresne: http://goo.gl/bqTMqb and those in our thoughts.
MacGruber led us out in prayer.
