21 intrepid souls joined together this morning in very frigid temperatures to get a beat-down (and hopefully warm up a bit). This is how it went…
Partial run around MM. Meet up at basketball courts
COT: Don Quixotes, SSH, Squats, Merkins, Flutter Kicks, LBCs – range 25 to 30 of each
Mosey to field at “end-zone” and line up.
Exercise: Ponzi Scheme or Madoff (still taking names for workout which was a mix of the Beast and a steady progression…with a little math involved):
Run to 25 yard line, perform exercise, advance next 25 yards, repeat. Advance to end and back. Should involve 8 stops including where you started.
Number of repetitions corresponds to stop #. For example, if at stop #5, perform 5 repetitions of exercise. Last stop should be 8 repetitions (i.e. starting line). Plank up once done.
Multiplier: COP calls out a multiplier before each round (x1, x3, what have you…). PAX applies that to the number of repetitions (i.e. stop #). Example, when traversing the field, if at stop 5, and multiplier is 2, you do the math…
Exercises order: Burpees (x1), WWII (x2), Squat Jumps (x3), Merkins (x4), LBC (x5),
x Minutes of Mary: Flutter kicks (30), Superman
As anticipated, there were a few comments regarding the initial run halfway around MM. Getting past that, we gathered for a COT. I could hear commentary in the background – probably DK – but I was concentrating on MY COUNTING so I didn’t pick up on it. I’m sure it was colorful and entertaining per usual.
We moseyed to the field….yes, no triangles this time. We moved from Geometry to Multiplication.
At the onset of the “Madoff”, thanks to BT for pointing out I had personally started out with the wrong exercise (Merkins), and should have been doing Burpees as I had instructed everyone to do just moments earlier (thanks for having my back). Otherwise workout turned out to be a bit of a beatdown. I personally was regretting the multiplier we applied to the Merkins. Shout out to Tramp Stamp and Swirly leaving me in the dust on the out-and-back…at least there would have been dust of the ground hadn’t been so completely frozen.
In our final circle during the Supermans, DK astutely pointed out “why Saabs were discontinued…” Nice one DK…
TYA made mention of a half marathon in the spring. If you have any questions see him…my fingers were too frozen by then to write it all down.
