Things are starting to heat up at Midoriyama but 11 PAX didn’t let that stop them from posting for a JV workout at the region’s premier afternoon AO. All were veterans so the short form disclaimer was given and the Pledge of Allegiance was recited. No need for a warmup, if you aren’t warm already something is wrong with you.
We moseyed to the large soccer field, set up a 5 sets of cones 20 yards apart on the shady side of the field and got to work. It went like this:
1 Burpee at start then run to 1st set of cones for 10 Merkins
Back to start for 2 Burpee’s then run to 1st set for 10 Merkins, then 2nd set for 20 American Hammers
Back to start for 3 Burpee’s then 1st set 10 Merkins, 2nd set 20 American Hammers, 3rd set 30 Squats
Back to start for 4 Burpee’s then 1st set 10 Merkins, 2nd set 20 American Hammers, 3rd set 30 Squats, 4th set 40 shoulder taps
Back to start for 5 Burpee’s then 1st set 10 Merkins, 2nd set 20 American Hammers, 3rd set 30 Squats, 4th set 40 shoulder taps, 5th set 50 LBC’s
Now come back down the ladder all the way to 1 Burpee and 10 Merkins
Next up was a little socially distant partner work. One partner does AMRAP of called exercise while the other partner runs to 3rd set of cones and completes a set number of reps of a different exercise. Flapjack. Repeat each round x3.
Round 1 – Flutter kicks AMRAP, 5 Burpee’s opposite end
Round 2 – Big Boys AMRAP, 10 Mike Tyson’s opposite end
Round 3 – Oblique crunches AMRAP, 10 Imperial Walker squats opposite end
Time was up so back to the start.
Proverbs 17:17 – “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”
We are not called to do life alone, rather we are called to build relationships and form communities in Christ. A true Christian friend will stand by you in all situations, especially the hard times. Think about who you have this type of relationship with and what relationships you need to work on to get to this level.
Round Up’s M
Thanks to all the guys for coming out today and the hard work they put in. Bats were flipped, rocks were pushed, form was questionable and mumble chatter was heard. Typical Midoriyama.
