Intro: Been doing some virtual workouts lately, which kind of suck without the 2nd F but better than nothing. When Catskill put out the desperate call for a Q I jumped in since I Q’d a Big House workout last December but rain and cold kept nearly everyone away and so it never got its due. Also, our small group barely completed this workout in time, and that was with skipping the flutter kicks, and that has always eaten at me. I wanted to do this workout in full and prove to myself that it could easily be done in the time allotted. Of the recycling mantra above, this is “Reuse”.
Warm-a-rama: The usual assortment of SSH (IC x 30), FAC/RAC (each IC x 10), WMH (IC x 10), slow squats (IC x 10), slow merkins (IC x 10).
The Thang: complete 25 Pullups, 50 Burpees, 75 SSH, 100 Merkins, 125 Prisoner Squats, 150 Mountain Climbers, 175 flutter kicks. I recommend completing in 3 series, doing 40% the first go round, 40% the second go round, and finish with 20% the final go round. Separate each series with a nice run – whatever distance you want – at least a couple minutes. First 2 series do reps of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 repetitions (40%, then 80%), then finish with the final 20% of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 repetitions.
Mary: I think during this time of COVID-19, and you’re out doing this on your own, do whatever Mary you enjoy, but for my purposes I did a minute of regular plan, right plank, and left plank.
Virtual BOM: Strange times. Lots of fear, both medical and financial, and people from all walks of life will be worried about their job security. Public school kids won’t be getting grades for the Spring semester because of the inequities in internet access in our very own county and across the state. If this isn’t an F3 call to arms I don’t know what is. Make yourself a source of comfort and knowledge during these uncertain times, and actively seek out ways to help those less fortunate than yourself. Aye!
