Balls to the face

6

16 posted for 45 Minutes of Mary.  The weather was perfect although we could have used a bit more sunlight to conduct our final set of exercises (Initially called “3 Man Weave” but may need to be called “Balls to the Face”).

THANG:

Mosey to first COP in front of school

20XSSH, 20XLBCs, 20XImperial Walkers, 20XFreddie Mercuries, 15XMerkins

Mosey to second COP at Grove/Westmoreland

3 groups of 5 did ladder runs to Cary/Westmoreland

Mosey to third COP at Blacktop

Setup Triple Check with a wall squat (people’s chair), plank and a run backwards 40 yards then sprint forward 40 yards, 4 rounds

Mosey to fourth COP in field

New drill that was counting on a little more light at this time (probably better in June for this) called the “Three Man Weave”

Group of 3 with football run half way across field executing “the weave” and pitching the ball to each other (rugby-style) stopping at mid field to do 2 sets of exercises then “weave” to far end of field do same 2 exercises – repeat 5 times

Exercises were:

1 – 20XMerkins and 20XLUNGES

2 – 20XBurpees and 20XSQUATS

3 – 20XLBCs and 20XMOUNTAIN CLIMBERs

4 – 10XFLUTTER KICKS and 20XCAROLINA DRY DOCKS (10 per leg)

5 – 15XWWII SITUPS and 15XPLANK PUNCHES

Moleskin

During round 5 (when there was more light and we’d had practice), if a team of 3 dropped the ball they did 5 MERKINS on the spot and continued.  Attesting to our need to work on our coordination, there were many stops for MERKINS.

Also during the Weave, several teams had other mishaps.  After the workout, one PAX member was quoted as saying “I got several balls to the face”.  I am not sure why, but that seemed funny.

 

Mosey to flag

    Great VQ Pucker. Enjoyed working with the New England Patriots championship football. Great to celebrate the successes of a great franchise in the gloom. Look forward to your next Q
