5 for 5


It was a super clear, crisp morning for a Heartbreak Ridge extravaganza. 5 men posted for a 5 station experiment. Here’s how it went down:

Warmup: 15x SSH, 10x arm circles, 10x DQ, 10x Russian soldiers, 15x LBC, 10x scorpion kicks then mosey to the front of the ES.

5 stations, 5 min each station, partner up; alternate ascending exercises 2,4,6,8… until timer sounds. Hold a specified position when not exercising.

Station 1 – at front of ES; burpees + Al Gore

Station 2 – tennis courts; jump squats + plank

Station 3 – back lot wall; hand release merkins + peoples chair

Station 4 – field house; lunges + balls to wall

Station 5 – bleachers on the hill; side hip dips + bleacher holds

Two Bernies up the hill to wrap up. Numberama, namerama, no announcements and YHC took us out.

Moleskine: Lots of mumblechatter + movement between stations made the morning pass quickly. Thanks to the PAX for humoring YHC with a trial workout format which seemed to flow well. 5 minutes seemed to be the right amount at each stop, YHC didn’t hear many counts get into the 20’s. At station 4 there was some suggestion of modifying balls to the wall for a more attainable movement; ultimately we decided to modifying balls was not a good option for anyone. Enjoy the day gentlemen.
