School Yard Beatdown

6 hardy Pax showed up for a little playground ruckus. Lots of mumblechatter while we waited for 5:30 to hit.

RIght on time we started with:

  • Sun Gods x10 IC, each direction
  • Cotton Pickers x12 IC
  • Downward Dog Calf Stretches
  • Into Upward Dog
  • Imperial Walkers x10 IC

Pax had clearly noticed the stations as they gathered in the Gloom. YHC now took the opportunity to elaborte. It was a relay of sorts.

3-4 Pax stayed back doing stationary exercises while 2 – 3 Pax ran the course with start time delays to spread the course out. Pax rotated stationary exercises as one of the Pax running the course finished up.

The course started at the traffic circle and headed around the parking lot towards the back of the school. Where one exercise ended and the next started was spread out to allow for moseys in between. Course exercises were:

  • Jump Rope x50 skips
  • Hop Scotch x8 (Broad Jumps – 2 forward, 1 sideways, 2 forward, 1 sideways, 2 forward)
  • Bear Crawl Slalom
  • Lunge Walk
  • WMDs x10/ea
  • Sprint the rest of the way around the school back to the Pax performing stationary exercises.

Stationary exercises were:

  • Plank
  • LBCs
  • Sandbag over-the-shoulder drops (both bags brought were nice and busted once we were done with them)
  • Low Slow Flutters

Each pax completed 2 full laps.

No day on the playground is complete with out a good fight.
