Pre-Blast Iron Lion — Wednesday, January 12, 2022, 5:15am Ladies and gentlemen!…well, just gentlemen. Tomorrow at Iron Lion we will have some fun. I’ve been yearning for some intense mumblechatter lately, so make sure you have your voice warmed up. I promise you I will keep the heart rate high for the whole 45. But, it will only feel like doing 45 minutes of exercise in 45 minutes.
Bring a jump rope
Bring a coupon
Rolled in and noticed immediately that even the back HS parking lot was an icy disaster, so we had to stay in the front HS lot.
Motivators from 7
Tappy taps in cadence to 10
Arm circles forward and back in cadence to 10
OYO neck rolls while i explained the thangs.
Partner 11s (squats and burpees)
1 partner did 1 squat while the other held plank. Then partner who planked farmer carried to the cones, held plank while the other did burpees. Switch off roles each round.
1 partner jump rope while the other runs to the cone where the coupons were. They did 10 lat pullovers, rifle carried back, and switched with the partner. Rinse and repeat 2 more times changing up the exercise, goblet squats the second time.
Rifle carry walk…first guy pops out does 3 irkins, drops to the back. Go through the whole line, then switch to walking curls.
Big boys on my up to 30
LBCs in cadence to 20
Boxcutters in cadence to 15
Stargazers til 6am
Circle of Trust
The new stat format on the website intrigued to take a look at the guys that are MIA. Man, there’s a lot of dudes that have disappeared over the last 30-60 days. I specifically asked Sulley to call out these guys last night to see if we could get any traction…not much luck. Motivation to get out in the gloom during the winter months wanes. It’s not only dark and cold, but it takes more time to get ready, to warm up the car, to wash your clothes, even get out of bed.
I feel that the consistent winter attendees have a special bond. I don’t know if its a misery loves company thing or what, but I feel like the whole attitude is more positive. I do think some of these guys that are missing right now would benefit from that positivity. They probably look at their weather app and say: no way I’m getting out there in this without looking at the bigger picture….I don’t know..maybe i’m crazy.

Great mumblechatter out there today. It was great to mix up the partners and get to know someone you don’t know too well. It was a great group, we all put in the work!
Great conversation at coffee with Speaker and Sputnik too!
