Eighteen upperclassmen including 1 FNG strolled onto the Mary Munford campus this morning, some veterans of today’s escapades while others were unsuspecting. YHC received a few strange looks when he emerged from his vehicle. Yep, March Madness baby! Tip-off was promptly at 0530.
Mosey, single file to the basketball courts for disclaimer then COP:
Invisible Layups (4 left hand and 3 right hand)
Invisible Jump Rope (x20)
High Knees (x20)
Butt Kickers (x20)
Defensive Slides (x10)
Floor Slaps (x10)
Stay on the basketball courts for a gasser of Lindsay’s. Jump Squats & Merkins. 30/10, 25/15, 20/20, 15/25, 10/30.
Line up on the end line for line drill then first round of 1-1s with Lab Rat and TYA firing away. Miss the front-end of a 1-1 then the PAX does 10 burpees. We did this twice and never found out what we would do if we made 1 or both free throws.
Line up in two lines at opposing ends of the court. Single file, continuously toss the ball against the backboard with the person tossing the ball moving to the end of the other line and the next person in line continuing the sequence. When the ball hits the ground PAX drops and completes 5 burpees. We tried this for a few minutes before calling failure.
Line drill then second round of 1-1s with Rosie and Swirly making attempts. Once again we did this twice with no one making a basket. 10 burpees each time there was a miss. Joy!
Circle up at mid-court for Box Out Ring of Fire. PAX planks while 2 members attempt to do a 5 second box out drill. Defender tries to prevent the offender from reaching the ball in the middle of the circle. After a few iterations the PAX began counting down by completing 5 merkins for each participant. Everyone participated that wanted to (I know who you are…).
Pair up for the much anticipated 2-2 matchups. Play half-court for 3 minutes. Winning team stays, losing team rotates clockwise. Odd team out does WWIIs for 3 minutes.
After 15 minutes we gathered our belongings and race back to the flag.
Welcome FNG Flange! This workout should not necessarily be your litmus test for whether or not you come back. We are mostly business when it comes to workouts but every once in a while it is nice to do something different and have some fun.
YHC appreciates the PAX suffering through some of the attempted exercises before we got to the more enjoyable 2-2 games. If the PAX would have allowed it, YHC would have scheduled 45 minutes of 2-2 games.
In 3 years, the PAX has attempted 14 free throws and only made 2. Of those 2, Sippy Cup is the only one to make a free throw. In 3 years. 1 person, 2 free throws. Maybe we should try this again in the summertime when it is light.
For those wondering, this is what a tap drill should look like. Also, these kids are like 12.
And this is what a box out drill looks like. Skip to ~3:30 for some good examples:
Enjoy the games everyone!
