YHC had no inspiring words in honor of Presidents Day for the 9 PAX at the Sandlot who started the holiday week right. It was straight down to business to kick off the week. The Thang:
Warm up with Toy Soldiers, IC x 10, Seal Jacks, IC x 15, Imperial Walkers, IC x 20.
Mosey to the park stopping for 5 burpees at the gate, then continue to exercises at 4 stations.
Picnic shelter #1: Merkins, Lunges, Flutter kicks (10 / 10 / 20 OYO).
(After station #1, YHC lost the Weinke. It was hiding in pants pocket the whole time but just didn’t want to come out into the cold. Flintstone was correct in pointing out that simply writing the Weinke is good enough to serve the purpose, then you don’t actually need it. So we continued on and YHC didn’t miss a beat.)
Picnic shelter #2: Derkins, Backward Lunges, Plank Jacks (10 / 10 / 20 OYO).
Bleachers: Dips, Step-ups, Flutter kicks (10 / 10 / 20 OYO).
(First round only: pause for POA near flag in middle of softball comlex.)
Parking lot: Nolan Ryans, Lunge-jumps, Plank Jacks (10 / 10 / 20 OYO).
Rinse and repeat with reps escalating to 15 / 15 / 30.
Rinse and repeat with reps escalating to 20 / 20 / 40. But time was running out, so round 3 got cut short. And that’s a lot of lunges, so at shelter #2 YHC called a 20 / 10 / 50 – fewer lunges but more plank jacks. That left just enough time to mosey back to the starting point, where the shovel flag would be if we had a shovel flag.
