The Sharing Song

A beautiful and warm morning brought 13 men together at New Bern High School for a lesson in sharing.  The theme of today’s workout was teamwork; partnership; unity.  Each exercise performed was shared among the team until completed.  Did it make it easier?  Absolutely not.  But it did bond us all a little closer and challenge us all to finish the task at hand.

The PAX did a slow mosey to the parking lot for:

The Thang:

The group broke into partners (including 1 threesome) for the four corners exercises:

Corner 1 – Wheelbarrow Push-ups with a Squat x 100 (partners alternated until completing 100 total)

Corner 2 – Reach and Touch Planks x 50

Corner 3 – Squat Jump with a Clap x 25

Corner 4 – Partner Get Ups x 15

Back to corner 1 (in the grass) – Over-Unders Bridge x 10

The group slow jogged to the Wall of Pain and immediately noticed the Pullup/Dip Bar strategically placed in the middle.  Continuing the sharing theme – the next rounds included:

100 Pull-Ups (each team member completed to failure while remaining PAX hold Wall Squat) – actually completed a total of 115

200 Dips (each team member completed to failure while remaining PAX hold Wall Squat) – actually completed 230.

Finished by partnering back up for:

100 Box Jumps (alternating while partner completes LBC’s)

Slow mosey back to front for a quick water break and finish with:
