Today’s workout was inspired by the chaotic ups and downs of our recent weather patterns. PAX experienced lots of elevation change during some gloomy low 20’s temps.
PAX: Umbrella, Bagger Vance, Boone’s Farm, Leatherneck, Toga, Not a Sport, Old Fashioned, Soft Serve, Ochocinco (QIC)
Started off on great footing (literally and figuratively) with some sage advice “modify at your own risk!” This foreshadowed 3 minutes into the mosey when YHC modified the paved track in favor of a shortcut through the grass–only to end up leading a few men into several inches of wet muck.
Mosey through the park, up the grand staircase, and to the parking garage for some warm up exercises, including Good Mornings, Willie Mays Hayes, Toe Touches/Stretch and Hop Kicks (in remembrance of CCR who was home with a sick child).
THANG 1: (Ascent: Parking Garage Stairs):
Start at level 1 (1 burpee), then up to level 2 (2 burpees), down to bottom, then repeat all the way to the top (up and down) stopping at each level for said amount of burpees, to level 6.
THANG 2: (Four Corners at the Top)
- Corners 1, 2, 3, 4: SSH x 25 each corner OYO
- Long sides: mosey to next corner
- Short sides: side shuffle to next corner
THANG 3: (Descent)
We worked our way down six levels of the garage, stopping at each end to perform 5 slow and low merkins. Alternated methods of movement from one end to the other, including sprints, back-pedals, bear crawl, lunge, Lieutenant Dans, and side-shuffles. At the bottom, mosey back to the grand staircase by the park.
THANG 4: (Grand Staircase / Reverse Jacob’s Ladder)
- Plank alternates (High, elbow, low) for 30 seconds each
- 10 WWIs OYO
- 20 LBCs OYO
