Many PAX know that two of YHC’s favorite beatdown tools are coupons and tabatas. Being that IPC didn’t utilize coupons as much as in prior years, it was a good time to break out the cinders AND combine them with a tabata format, much like mixing chocolate and peanut butter, or pure sodium with water….Each of those combinations creates a significantly different but very useful product (Peanut butter cups and, if there’s a little chlorine, salt), although if you don’t use the proper balance you can blow a whole in the roof of your high school’s chemistry lab, kind of like my chem teacher did junior year. With that in mind, a disclaimer was given (i.e., modify as necessary), we sought out ad hoc coupons for those without, and off we went…..
Weedpickers x 10
Willie Mays Hays x 14 (7 each leg)
Moroccan night clubs x 10
SSH’s x 10
Mosey around the ampitheater, then to the trail around playground to obtain a suitable coupon for one of the pax, then back to the flag. Grab coupons and carry Zamperini style to the side parking lot by the lacrosse field
Easy Street up: Pax circled up, chopped feet, and dropped for a burpee at the call of down. Took turns making the call for down, done through the completion of the song “Easy Street” (or about 2 minutes)
Tabatas – 20 seconds work, 10 seconds active rest with an air chair, alternating two exercises for each round
Bent row / block swings, followed by Bernie Sanders to the end of the parking lot, drop for a burpee, then return via Bernie Sanders
Goblet squats / stiff leg deadlift, followed by block farmer’s carry to the end of the parking lot, drop for a burpee, then return
Dercan / overhead press, followed by Bernie Sanders to the end, burpee, Bernie back
Curls / Skull crushers
Line up on side of the parking lot for 7’s (vs. 11’s), consisting of 6 Mike Tyson’s / 1 Monkey Humper and progressing to completion of 1 Mike Tyson and 6 Monkey Humpers. Mode of travel via Colonel Sanders (duck walks while doing air presses across the parking lot)
Bloody Mary – 10 Buzzsaws, 10 second low plank hold, 10 each of Gas Pumpers, American Hammers, Flutter Kicks, LBC’s, then 10 second low plank and 10 Buzzsaws….and that was time
10/29 is the Alpha Convergence at The Boneyard. Still looking for local Boneyardianites to help guide folks station to station.
Prayers for those traveling on break, as well as those managing kids at home (either on break or due to sickness). Praise for employment getting close for Dinghy
It was good to get a solid cinder workout this morning, and YHC was thankful to be able to share that with some hard-charging PAX. Well done this morning, men – The chatter was upbeat and folks were focused on max effort. Was a great day to lead!
