Preblast:

Can someone who hasn’t seen most of Star Wars design a Star Wars themed workout? Probably not, but come find out to be sure. May the fourth be with you. Also rest in peace to Chewbacca.

BackBlast:

 

 

Strong DR presence for this sunny spring morning beatdown while PAX from throughout the region traversed the city for Star Course.

 

Warm up

– Abe Vigodas

– Squat Jack’s

– arm circles (forward/backward/overhead claps)

– Imperial Storm troopers for 2.5 minutes to the tune of the Imperial Death March (this half-assed lyrics satisfied the Star Wars theme for May the 4th)

Mosey to stairs by riverside Apple Store

 

– Stairway to Seven (burpees and Merkins at bottom of stair and squats at the top, increase from 1 to 7)

 

Mosey to lakefront trail

 

– Stopped at a nice looking hill, partnered up

– partner A does lunges up and down the hill while partner B does dips on square rocks at bottom of hill. Second set switched to box jumps.

 

Mosey back to the Bean

– PAX arriving back at the Bean first assumed the plank position while waiting for the 6 to roll in.

 

This brought us right to 8 am and ended with Name o Rama and COT. Winnebago helped name FNG now known as Rat, inspired by his Patriots fandom.

 

Ran over 3 miles as I continue to underestimate how far things are from one another. Nonetheless, we got a good tour of the city for the out of towners. And we all got a little bit better.
