3 EC ruckers took a short stroll through The Falcon grounds and the surrounding neighborhood hills.
While cruising through the Falcon parking lot, we noticed some chalk graffiti on the ground evidently left behind by kids loitering early into the morning hours. Interestingly, the markings seemed to indicate some suspicious workout routine. The words were:
BWS (Body Weight Squats)
Bent Over Rows
Since the writing was on the wall, err… ground, we chose to use the pre-marked graffiti in our goal of crushing 100 reps of as many of the listed exercises as possible. Between each set of 100 reps; run a prescribed route (approx. ¼ mile) before launching into your next chosen exercise.
The Warm Up
SSH (x100 IC) – Everyone immediately gained entry to the Century Club
BWS (x10 IC)
Arm Circles (Fwd x10 IC; Rev x10 IC)
With certainly a few errors (due to chalk-code decryption challenges), the approx. tally from this AM is listed below. (Shoot me a note with any corrections. I’ll gladly update). The PAX below completed 100 reps of each exercise.
