The BackBlast:

12 pax came together for our warmest donut shop of the year.  Blocks were walked, poisons were picked, fellowship was had, and feelings, we hope, will be felt.

Warm Up

  1. Motivators from 6
  2. Daisy pickers and windmills in cadence
  3. Several warm up runs across the lot (1. Karaoke, 2. Butt kickers 3. High knees, 4. Shuffles)

The Thang

The group walked about a half mile loop with blocks on shoulders.  At every corner, group stops and pax do 60 couple exercises of their choice, holding in plank at the end until all finish.  After the first two stops, curls and overhead presses were prohibited.  We made 5 total stops.  Between stops, pax paired up with a new pax each time to answer a random question.


Pax in partners doing rounds of ladders/ab work:

  1. P1 ladder while P2 flutter kicks, then switch
  2. P1 ladder while P2 box cutter, then switch


This past Monday night, YHC’s sleep was ruined by the White Sox epic 9th inning collapse (they were up 8-2 in the top of the 9th and lost 12 – 9 in 11).  This gave way to several hours of sleepless agitation.  We all have such moments, when we are agitated for unexpected reasons.  In these moments, resist the urge to battle the feelings.  Don’t cover it was distraction, or substances, or denial.  Feel the feeling.  Meditate on it.  Learn from it.
