Woke up this morning at 3:30am ready for a Saturday workout. Once I realized how early it was and I had a couple more hours to sleep, I got a glass of water and then went back to bed. After a little more sleep, I got up and headed to the Yank to get my day started with a good F3 workout. Arrived around 6:50am and several PAX were already there, waiting in their warm cars until for the beatdown to begin. By 7am, 14 PAX came out despite it being a cool 25 degrees. I guess they wanted to check out the twelve gifts I mentioned in my tweet the night before or they thought this VQ’s workout was going to be light and easy. Either way, I am glad they showed up for a good beatdown at the Yank!
With a quick disclaimer and then pledge, we started with a warm up:
SSH= 20x IC
Imperial Walkers = 15x IC
Peter Parkers = 20x IC
We then did a mosey mile and completed with 5x burpees. After that, moseyed up to Field of Dream to receive the 12 gifts of Christmas. We broke up into four groups and each group started at each corner of the track. Each corner was an exercise x12; mosey to the next corner to complete next exercise. After each lap, count down the exercises until we reached “A Partridge in a Pear Tree” (1x per exercise) for a total of 12 laps. Mtn Climbers, Merkins, Side Straddle Hop, and Monkey Humpers were the four exercises performed. I think I heard someone mutter something about this was going to be an easy workout, but I think they were surprised. We also had one group singing the “Twelve Days of Christmas” as they were running laps.
Next exercise was a Tesla Special, Bear Crawl Slalom. We were going to get two opportunities to crawl, but with the number of PAX, one crawl was sufficient. Tesla, thanks for the challenge, it was a hit with all! I say that with sarcasm.
To finish up, we moseyed to Heartbreak Hill for merkins x5 and sprint up hill and mosey down, rinse and repeat x2.
LBCs x15 IC
American Hammers x15 OYO
Flutter Kicks x15 IC
Nolan Ryans x15 IC
VQ gave a brief testimony on his 10 year anniversary of breaking a habit. Prayer request from Tool Time of a family going through some challenging times. Prayer for PAX that have recently lost loved ones and not having them around during the Christmas season.
Thanks for all PAX that came out and thanks for chance to lead. Great workout to all!
