Stadium stairs are tricky in the dark…


4 strong rolled started the week off right at River Run, including one Kotters – welcome back Salad Cream.  This is what transpired (more or less):

COP – all IC

  • SSH x25
  • Don Quixotes x10
  • Helicopter x12
  • Imperial Walkers x15
  • Merkins x10
  • LBCx x20
  • Box Cutters x15

Mosey to the monkey bars (i.e., River Run’s rusty cage) for a quick pull-up warmup.  5 pull-ups – 5 Derkins, 5 pull-ups – 10 dips.

Line up on sideline of field for 11s – jump squats and 4-count mountain climbers.

Mosey to the football stadium for Doras – 100 merkins, 200 2-count flutter kicks and 300 SSHs.  Exercises completed while your partner runs the home bleachers.  As noted by Jville, coming down the stairs was tricky.  No accidents (that I know of), but let’s just say the lack of light made discerning the depth perception of the steps difficult, so an audible was called and the run was shifted to a lap around the track.

Mosey to base of the field where poles are for a quick ladder – grab a pole and perform 5 pole smokers, then bear-crawl up the hill and do  5 werkins at the top.  Run back to pole and repeat counting down to 1.

Mosey toward the light of the parking lot at Bettie Weaver for Mary – Dolly, Freddie Mercuriies and American Hammers – all IC x20.  Finish with 1 minute of Superman.

COT and YHC took us out.


Great second bootcamp at River Run.  Nice to have Salad Cream back out and hope to see him out again soon.  Strong work today keeping up with the PAX.  Way to push it.

As the PAX discussed, the River Run AO has lots of possibilities, especially when we get some more light and can explore the park area behind the high school.  Even with out that, there is lots of space, some hills, various obstacles and apparatuses to work with.  YHC was there on Saturday throwing BP to my kids in the batting cage, and I noticed the football lineman sled.  I had all intentions of finishing up with some line drills and pushing the sled but, as usual,  the clock got the best of me.  Next time gentlemen – so be ready, I will want to see some solid 3-point stances.

Have a great day and a great week men!  Thanks for letting me lead – a pleasure, as always.

  1. Great to see you out there again Salad Cream. Hope the treacherous stadium stairs didn’t scare you from coming back out again.
    Nice use of the AO Gumbo. I was hoping you didn’t see that sled, you know football drills aren’t what I’m built for.

  2. Oh, the sled will be used. Will have to move it to first in the rotation next time to avoid it suffering from the inevitable time crunch.
