The Number 12

The Number 12  2021.01.25 (national Irish Coffee Day, by the way)

A lovely post play-off morning to gather in the gloom and discuss the thoughts of the day; Bucs making the Superbowl with their leader #12 Brady, Loveseats new ride (oh yeah, he will tell you about it), War Chickens ride-less adventure to last Saturday’s Q… 90 second warning and it was good to Go.

I thought I heard Brady is making his 12th appearance to a Superbowl so I based my routine on the NUMBER 12.  (later to find out it was 10 trips but his jersey number is 12 so my numerical logic is legit)



Let’s go

Warm up:

12 SSH

12 Tappy Taps

6 Finkle kicks each leg…totaling…wait for it…12!

Mosey to the pier.


3 sets of 11 to 1, 1 to 12 mosey between exercises.  Total is always 12!

Set 1: 1 squat mosey to opposite end, 11 Imperial Walkers.  Mosey to other end for 2 squats and mosey for 10 Imperials. Until you finish with 11 squats and 1 imperial walker

Short mosey to covered portion of pier for set two

Set 2: 1 dip mosey to end of cover for 11 Carolina dry docks (same format until 11 dips and 1 Carolina dry dock)

Mosey to sidewalk by flags for set 3.

11 BBS mosey 25 yards , 1 Merkin.  Back and forth till about 5 BBS and 7 Merkins.

It was then decided do to time (and everyone was tired up getting up and down to just finish the reps of each… 4,3,2,1 BBS and then 8,9,10,11 Merkins… the BURN was real.

So I think if my math is correct we did:

66 squats, 66 Imperial walkers

66 Dips, 66 Carolina dry docks

66 BBS, 66 Merkins

And we pretty much ran the entire time.

Naked Moleskin:

Trucks are Cool.  Rucking on a Sat was fun.  Teenage girls should NOT be talked about.  And Freak’n Brady…what else can you say!



Thank you guys for the morning chatter, the hard work, and the comradery only the GLOOM can bring!
