A little more than stretching happened

A little more than stretching happened

7 Pax and 1 pre-runner posted on a chilly Saturday AM for #Tipping Point in Monroe.  Although Glass Joe was concerned that we would do yoga and awkward looking back stretches the whole time, we got in plenty of upper and lower body work.  Even some running for an asthmatic Q.

7 AM start.  7:05 Bernanke, keeping BOA hours, decides to post. A 5 burpee penalty for him.  PAX enjoyed his pain.

COP  and DSCC-mostly given.

2) Rocks in circle – My 2.0, Quidditch, q-jacked and ran this exercise.   He did a great job!   Circle up, complete called exercise, move left until done.  Much mumble chatter concerning the differing size and weights of rocks.  Bernanke’s rock almost crushed Glass Joe head alas he survived.  Maybe next time Bernanke.

3) Lt. Dan –  Lunge/Squat 1:2, 2:4,….. until 5:20.  Opps need more time and length until we get to next station.  So reverse Lt Dan 4:16, 3:12,….  It was a very popular choice on YHC’s part.  😉

4) People’s Chair – Balls to Wall. – Mosey to bathroom building for a little Peoples Chair and Balls to Wall.  Smokey led the first count down for B2W. Apparently, Vols can’t count without having to pause, think, pause again…   If only he were a ‘Bama grad like YHC.   Subsequent rounds Smokey was forbidden to count down.

It is always fun to lead tipping point.  A great AO with lots of exercise options.  PAX worked hard and pressed themselves.  Jud’s after is always a second F treat!
