Stairway to Heaven


Nine faithful attended a hump day workout at the Carillon.

The thang:

Mosey to circle – 20 SSH, 10 Don Q, 20 Imperial Walker, 20 Freddie Mercury

Mosey to Carillon, partner up.

Round 1: partner carry up stairs and over to other stairs, run down, each partner 2 times through

Round 2: wheelbarrow up steps, lung across, run down, each partner 2 times through

Round 3: 100 merkins total, other partner runs up and down stairs

Round 4: 100 2-count mountain climbers total, other partner bunny hops stairs and runs down other stairs

Round 5: 100 2-count flutter kicks total, other partner bear crawls up stairs over to other stairs and bear crawls down.

Round 6: Running up opposite stairs, meet at top, partner 1 does 25 leg throws, run down stairs, partner 2 does 25 leg throws, repeat

Triple check –  perkins (?) – one man elbow planks, one man puts legs on back of other and does merkins, third guy runs up and down Carillon steps.

Mosey to long field – 50% run down, 20 LBCs in cadence, 75% run back, 20 count box cutters in cadence.

Moleskin – Great work today PAX. YHC felt it was a good day to get some stair work in, and what better location than the Carillon which is quite majestic lit up in the night sky. Not sure what the triple check exercise is, maybe a perkin, but it’s a darn good triple check. BT was found wanting on hump day by a small terrier during the LBCs. Let him finish BT, just let him finish.
