17 made it out to the gloom this morning – what a bunch of suckers! Simple instruction, classic disclaimer provided.
Q made a promise of a “special treat” the night before in slack.
There for 4 pre runners (2 miles, down Eves and back).*
*The Pre Runners had an interesting discussion – is the Pre Run actually just a Regular Run and the Beat Down truly a Post Beat Down? The world may never know
Mosey to the 2nd parking lot
World’s Greatest Stretch (right leg, left leg)
Side Straddle Hops
Baby Arm Circles (forward & back)
Q instructed the PAX to each pick a parking space line.
Perform 2 merkins, bear crawl to the next line, do 2 merkins, and broad jump to the next line
PAX repeated until Q called for a “20 squat where you are” break
PAX kept going under Q called time.
Next, Mosey up the small hill to the baseball field concession area. Q revealed the “special treat” for the PAX – a set of 50lb (aka LEEROY) & a set of 30lbs (aka JENKINS) dumbbells!!* What a fitting name – “Dumbbell”.
Round #2 – Instructions
Pick a partner. 1 partner is running (either down the hill OR to the front parking lot depending on which special treat you choose), the other partner exercising.
Leeroy (aka the 50lb) and Jenkins (aka the 30lb) must be in motion AT ALL TIMES. At any point in the round if they are sitting on the ground, a PAX must carry them to their desired location.
Jenkins goes to the bottom of the hill and back; Leeroy to the parking lot and back.
Modify as needed.
Round #2 – Exercises
Each PAX perform – 100 step ups; 100 dips
50 Burpees, 100 American Hammers
When you’re not working, you’re running. Either running to the bottom of the hill or the front parking lot
PAX took turns choosing between Jenkins (hills with the 30lb) OR Leeroy (heavy on the flat)
*(13.6kg & 22.6kg for Raspberry Pie)
The Gladiator celebrates its 4 year anniversary on 6/21. Be there!
