The Noreaster Beaster

The weather apparently shifted overnight and a breezy but beautiful morning greeted 8 hearty souls that were heavy on the ‘respect’ end of the age range until a few youngsters (relatively) showed up to enjoy the Fitness, Fellowship and Fitness. No FNGs present so we jumped into it.

The Thang

Logic won out and we headed to the overhang for protection from the wind vs. the track. A mid-range mosey around to warm-up and we settled in for some circuit work. 4 corners were used as stations with varying modes of travel between them. We bear-crawled up & over the boxes, crab walked, walk crabbed, crawl beared, lunge walked and walk lunged our way around. The sequence of exercises were as follows:

  • Leg throws w/partner OYOx25; flaphack
  • Chapel Hill Debutantes OMUx10 each leg
  • Perkins w/partner OMDx20; flapjack
  • American Hammers 4CICx15
  • Fire Hydrants OMUx25 each leg
  • Wide Merkins OMDx20
  • Plank Jacks 4CICx20

  • Shoulder Taps 4CICx20
  • Box Cutters 4CICx25
  • Mountain Climbers 4CICx15
  • Spidey Merkins OMDx20
  • (warmed up and wanting a break to mosey around – we moved out to the parking lot to continue moseying to each corner for exercises)
  • WWIs OYOx20

Someone started counting off and it was well received by the pax. Counted off, name-o-rama, no announcements, pax prayed The Lord’s Prayer to close. Off to Pete & Nikki’s – good showing and we solved a lot of big world problems! Always good to share and learn from one another.

Great fellowship this am – aye!
