It was a warm May afternoon for a Defib beatdown at Midoriryama and YHC was feeling spry.
Warm-up SSH, 5 burpees, Imperial Walkers, 5 burpees and some monkeyhumpers for the 6 coming in hot.
Grab a block a mosey to parking lot for some block Dora work. Not having put a lot of forethought into the exercises I blurted out what came to mind – 100 overhead press (that sounds about right) 200 kettle bell swings (eh) and 300 .. 300.. what can I think up … 300 squat thrusters. Immediately the pax were elated and showed their thanks with lots of mumblechatter (at least that’s what I remember. So if the exercises were going to be easy (right), then lets spice up the running part. Carry your block the length of the parking lot and do a blockee then return – except with each trip increase by one additional blockee. At this point I got the sense that not all of the mumblechatter was praise for being such a benevolent Q. Who knew squat thrusters were so time consuming. After many rounds of calling for an Omaha I relented – ok change from blockees to curls. But continue with thrusters. Many a pax thought I had lost my mind – that it was impossible to complete 300 squat thrusters but after just 25 min the exercises were completed by all. So having 15 min or so lets take blocks on a road trip across the street for triple nickel with block up the embankment but with Moroccan night clubs at both top and bottom – This took us the the end. Thankfully
The moral of the story is that you can do more than you think you can if you just get out of your head.
