20 PAX showed up on this warm Tuesday morning while many others were vacationing away. As a VQ, YHC tried to keep it simple today but push the limits.  There are a few things Ricky Bobby knows how to do; Go real fast, drive a race car and specifically take left turns.  To stay in fashion, that is what the PAX did today.  Here is how the BD laid out.

THE THANG:  Talladega w/ Pit Stops

The PAX used the large sidewalk loop as our Nascar track today going counter clockwise to perform the Cooper.  The Cooper consisted of 1 lap around the track back to the ‘Pit Stop’, perform group of exercises, then run another loop, and so on.  The first stop at the pit stop the rep count was x10, next stop was x9 reps, then x8…down to x1. At the Pit Stop the PAX performed a series of exercises listed below.

The exercises of The Cooper are as follows:

  • Burpees
  • Squats
  • Merkins

The Cooper resulted in approximately 3.3 miles of running and 55 on each exercise. Smurfette was feeling the merlot by the end but managed to keep it in the bottle.

With our shoulders and arms already aching from all the Burpees and Merkins YHC decided to bring a new exercise to the PAX.  The Tire Turners.  The PAX chose a local coupon of choice and held the coupon in front of them as if it were a steering wheel.  The PAX then proceeded to drive their wheel from left to right as we walked around the short track.
