The BackBlast:

6 PAX showed up just as the rain was tapering off on a balmy 42 degree morning.

We warmed up with SSH x22 IC, Daisy Pickers x10, Windmills x10, Mountain Man Poopers x10, and Bat Wings x10

Moseyed over to the field for the thing.

In honor of our democracy, the Constitution and amendments, we as a group threw out ideas for an exercise. Each exercise had to be done for a total of 27 reps (total number of amendments to the constitution and the day of the month!). Then we voted as a group if the exercise got a second term for another 27 reps. After each exercise was done, we bear crawled (in honor of international polar bear day), 25 yards before another exercise was suggested, completed and then voted on for a possible second term. As this was the anniversary of the 22nd amendment, no
Exercise could get more than 2 terms, so no repeats. Bear crawl after every exercise was done with its term in office whether it be one or two terms.

We started with burpees which did not get a second term, and then did merkins, squats, big bois, imperial walkers, side straddle
Hops, (all won re-election easily), Bonnie Blair’s (very close vote on this one but squeaked by for a second term) a few different holds for 27 seconds each that got voted strait into an almost minute hold, and shoulder taps. In a surprise 4-2 vote, burpees got the second term it missed initially to finish us off before we moseyed around the field and back to the AO.

CoT: Structure is so important (like the structure of our government, which is also just flexible enough to make important changes), and it can help you get a lot done. I didn’t have to think much about any specifics for what to do with the exercises because I had the group to fill it in for me, but by having the structure ready it was easy for us to fill it in. So important, especially for our kids and families to have a solid structure which makes it easy to fill in and get stuff done.
