Weather good, dawn is coming and a ragged group of PAX show-up for a good, ole-fashioned beat-down. I will state upfront for those that just did the Phoenix, my routine may look familiar but it does have different exercises! That and the Q is always right! No FNGs so we take off.
Friendly run from the parking lot over to the first intersection. Circle up for the warm-up:
10 Good Mornings
10 Cotton Pickers
Run to the right and toward the back parking lot, mixing in side-shuffles and backwards runs to keep it interesting. Circle up and count out 1’s and 2’s for the first work-out routine, 4-corners:
One’s jog to the first corner, performs 5 clap merkins, jogs to the far corner for 10 diamond merkins, run to the next corner for 15 wide-arm merkins, and finish back at the start with 20 regular merkins. Two’s 2 do the same number but starts at the first corner. Plank hold when everyone is done.
Next up, partner up for Dora 1-2-3, 100 merkins, 200 LBCs, 300 Ninja squats, running only half the parking lot.
Now, since the shelter is there we need to use it! Partner 1 does step-ups 10 each leg, while partner 2 does American hammers AMRAP, round 2 20 hail mary’s (dips with feet on planking partner), last round back to step-ups 10 each leg and flutter kicks.
Mosey through the woods to the dam and rock pile, partners getting a non-traveling rock. Partner 1 bear crawl up the dam to the top, performing 10 star-jumps while partner 2 does arm curls AMRAP. Round 2, bear crawl up 10 plank jacks while partner 2 does overhead rock press. Last round, bear crawl up 5 burpees, while partner 2 rock-row (shaggy).
Indian run back to parking lot finishing with a “give-it-all-ya-got” run at the end.
No time for M
Count-a-rama: 13 PAX!
