Beautiful small town. Great beatdown opportunities. Meet at the playground next to the Old Fire Station.

  1. Smokehouse Smokefest on 11/20/21

    PAX: Venom, Flo, HazMat, Crackshot, Lego, Coconut (Q)

    Intro: Mission and core principles, Disclaimer. Theme of the workout is ‘Fighting the Flux’ in recognition of our fallen brother, Red Ryder.

    Workout consisted of a mosey loop down to the sluice-gate and back to the city hall park, interrupted at several points by a FluX interlude.

    FluX = 55s Flutter Kicks, 5s rest, 55s X-factor, 5s rest.
    FluX was usually followed by two other exercises having inspirational names or themes.
    55s something 5s rest, 55s something else.

    Mosey to stop 1
    Stop 1: FluX + No surrenders + Imperial walkers
    Mosey to stop 2
    Stop 2: FluX + Step Ups + Merkins
    Bearcrawl across the bridge to stop 3
    Stop 3: FluX + Step Ups + Merkins
    Heavy work- grab a rock from the river to use for a coupon–
    55s overhead presses, 5s rest, 55s coupon squats, 5s rest. Repeato.
    Mosey to stop 4
    Stop 4: FluX + SSH + air squats
    Mosey to stop 5
    Stop 5: FluX + Treehugger + plank hold
    Mosey to stop 6
    Stop 6 (back at the park)
    No Surrenders + Step Ups + BBSU + Superman.

    COT with Crackshot as the 6. Nice things to say about Smokey (Smokey EH’d Crackshot with a welcoming salvo like: “hey you look dumpy and overweight, how about joining us for a workout?”). Crackshot was a competitive pistol shooter as a lad. Now a family man–dad of 2, and key member of the Grand Rapids PAX.

    Honor and a pleasure to lead!
