10/13/2020 – Backblast – Da Vinci and Einstein Combined 5:30am, @ Mastodon

15 faithful HIMs faced the gloom on this chill Tuesday morning. (Crack, Crash, Jolly, Tortuga, Banks, Panhandle, Sparrow, Hotbox, Shiplap, Da Vinci, Cookies, Smokey, SAGA, TBone, BigMac)

Warmup: motivators, goof balls, mountain climbrs, bat wings,

Mosey to Shiplap’s house of pain


Da Vinci’s code (one of them) is 3. Einstein’s theory of relativity adds the dimension of time. For each muscle group, PAX perform 3 minutes of exercises focused on the area (upper body push, posterior chain lower, upper pull, anterior lower, abs) switching exercises every minute and then repeating.

(Pretty much directly taken from Athlean-X workout)

Upper Push – Decline pushups, Alt. BW Side Lateral Raises, BW Tricep Extensions

Anterior Lower – Alt step-ups, Alt Reverse Lunges, Bonnie Blairs

Upper Pull – Chinups, Inverted Rows, Back widows

Posterior Lower – Floor Bridge legs extending and contracting, Long leg marches, High hip bucks

Abs – Ab halos, crunchy frogs, sit-up alt elbow pass-throughs

Moleskin – (Lewis on relativity) Pride gets no pleasure out of having something – only out of having more of it than the next man. We say that people are proud of being rich, or clever, or good-looking, but they’re not. They are proud of being richer, or more clever, or better looking than others. If everyone else became equally rich, or clever, or good-looking, there would be nothing to be proud about. It is the comparison that makes you proud: the pleasure of being above the rest.–C.S. Lewis (The Great Sin)

CoT – Prayer for safety at work, students returning to schools, effective chemo treatments, the supreme court nomination hearings.

Thanks for a great morning!
