  • When: 02/13/18
  • QIC: Beano
  • The PAX: Nightshift, Cooter, Bells, Newt, Big Kat, Kitten, Poser, Brick, Shake It, Fish and Chips, Big House, Hornsby

EC – Three for all of a Murph you can complete in ~ 25 minutes (Beano, Nightshift, Shake It).

It was a crisp and at times breezy 40-degree morning.  The Heels are in the middle of a three-game winning streak over the last five days, and Champ has begun to relentlessly talk smack on the new basketball Slack channel.  Basketball is in the air, gents!  As a result, this workout was built around improving agility, increasing your vertical jump, and getting some cardio in.  The following is what went down.

WARM-UP – SSH, windmills, merkins, air squats, arm circles, imperial walkers, and a fellowship lap around all fields

THE THANG

  • Grapevine knee kicks (right knee), 10 merkins
  • Grapevine knee kicks (left knee), 10 merkins
  • Single-leg alternating bounders (1/4 length of field, down and back 2x), 10 merkins

Pain Circuit (split into groups of two)

  • Partner 1 – Weighted Kneeling Hip Raises and Partner 2 – Merkins (start from ground) – rotate and complete each exercise 2x – run lap around all fields
  • Partner 1 – Kettlebell Swings and Partner Two – Air squats (starting in low squat hold position) – rotate and complete each exercise 2x – run lap around all fields
  • Partner 1 – Straight-leg Deadlift/Shoulder Press Combo and Partner 2 – Fingertip Merkins/Six-inch Plank Hold Combo – rotate and complete each exercise 2x – run lap around all fields

Agility/Speed Suicides (series repeated 2x)

  • Side shuffle 1/4 length of field and back to baseline
  • Sprint to half field and complete 10 merkins
  • Sprint back to baseline and plank until all PAX are back

MARY – LBCs, WWIIs, and Side Hip Raises (both sides)

Thanks to all PAX in attendance for a great start to the day.  Aye!
