61 degrees, clear skies, 9 PAX showed up to prepare for the upcoming fall running is the Indy 500.
Jay-Z, Boucher, Maestro, CrabbyPO, Gasman, Ariel, Stache, Bubblicious, Daisy-QIC
Side lunges 10IC
Scorpion 30sec each side
Tight spot stretching OYO
To prepare for the 500, we did a modified Tortoise and Hare since we didn’t have straps. Divided the pax into 2 groups. While one group was doing the exercise, the other group was carrying a large tire around the “track” (maestro lap and tip). The exercise group then ran to take the tire while the other group did the exercise. Exercises were as follow:
Burpees 5reps to 50 total (each group did 5 rounds)
Outlaws 10 reps to 100 total
Merkins 15 reps to 150
Big Boys 20 reps to 200
Squats 25 to 250
Box Cutters 15IC
Pickle pointers 15IC
Without the straps today- wasn’t sure how this would work out. Had a brief test to see how many people would be the proper amount to carry the tire for the period of time for the workout. Happened that splitting the group in half worked great. Not sure we set any speed records for laps around the track- but forearms got a good workout. Lots of cheerful chatter today as the pace didn’t leave anyone gasping. Next time we may need to divide the groups by height so Boucher doesn’t feel left out in the carries. And Bubblicious….. well we will leave his questionable comments for pondering bu those in attendance today. Though not the roughest workout today, good full body work and a good sweat was had. Looking forward to our anniversary workout on Friday; and our anniversary F2 gathering on Saturday!!!! Hope to see you all out on Friday!!!!
