5 PAX met in the gloom this morning. It was a brilliant 0℃, modest wind and very tired bodies. Q was toast from yesterday but still pushed on.
Motivators from 10, Alabama Ass-Kicker, Absolution IC x 10, Danger Zone and Baba O’Riley
Global Warming (10 sets of the following throughout: merkins, side lunges, Big Boy sit ups, Bonnie Blairs and more merkins)
This started out as a well intentioned burpee challenge. However, Q was blasted even before the beatdown so we really only made it through two rounds. PAX got together in groups of two. One held back doing AMRAP burpees while their partner did Boo Boo Bear Crawl to a tree down the way and then back, using the other leg on the way back. This wound up being far more painful than expected so we changed to a shorter route. After one round, Q called it. The winning team had to do an Absolution that mimicked a burpee. The losing team had to do 16 of them.
With 30 minutes left for the beatdown, Q improvised and changed the main Thang to be the Britney beatdown:
- Piece of Me: PAX did durkins during the song and then squats during the chorus
- …Baby One More Time: PAX held Balls to the Wall during the song and then squats during the chorus
- Stronger: PAX performed dips during the song and toe touches during the chorus
The remaining time was spent on Circle of Mary: Each PAX names their desired exercise and reps and we moved. Honestly, I can’t remember most of them. I do remember we finished with American Hammers.
