Three Forgot to Fartsack

Three Forgot to Fartsack

Rainy weather moved us to the covered picnic area, where 3 PAX joined YHC on a fun filled mostly non-running gear workout.

Warm Up:

Took advantage of the minimal rain to mosey a couple of blocks and back; SSH x20 IC, MC x10 IC, Plank Jacks x10 IC, Merkins x10 IC, 10 burpees oyo

The Thang:

Under the picnic shelter next to the benches where the gear was waiting. Dumbbells from 25-55 lbs, 45 lb plates.

Cranked up the tunes. Turned on the lights. Explained the stations.

Tabata station work 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off

Stations were:

  1. kettlebell swings
  2. Goblet squats
  3. Plate carry
  4. Shoulder press
  5. Biceps curls
  6. Sandbag burpees
  7. Lateral raise
  8. Bent over rows
  9. Slam ball

Every so often, we would mix in regular burpees, derkins or merkins as another station.

After 15 sets, the rain held off a bit and allowed us to run to Providence Rd. and back. Back to the covering, 1 minute plank.

Then repeat stations for 15 more sets until time was up. Finished it off with 10 burpees


This was actually the first workout YHC has Q’d with this little running. Not sure how I feel about it.  Decided to bring gear expecting weather-limited movement with more PAX but all appeared to have been scared off by the 4:45 downpour that likely made everyone (but the 3 studs listed above) hit the snooze button.   But for the most part, the rain held off until after we were done and we remained mostly dry despite the conditions around us.   Due to preference, some stations were skipped more often than others.  Some modifications were made.  But no quit and no train interruption made for a good workout.

Thanks to the 3 that braved the 5 mph winds and really light rain to join me this morning.   Hard work and great attitudes as usual.
