Fun Facts for Reps on Presidents Day

Fun Facts for Reps on Presidents Day

Warmup:  Ran to the track where we started with 10 side straddle hops, followed by 10 imperial walkers, 10 low slow squats, 10 mountain climbers, and ending with 5 burpees for a total of 45 reps in honor of our 45 Presidents.

Followed the warmup with an Indian run around the track recognizing the Trail of Tears and the correct answer of which President was associated with it, Andrew Jackson.

1st Series:  Three laps around the track for the three impeached Presidents, Johnson, Clinton, and Trump, with four exercise stops, first 50 yard line, 10 merkins, first endzone, 10 LBCs, second 50 yard line, 10 squats, and second endzone, 10 heels to heaven, followed by 4 burpees in honor of the 44 men who have served as President since Grover Cleveland’s two nonconsecutive terms, 22nd and 24th, are both counted.

2nd Series:  Ran to the concession stand and gathered lifting rocks.  There each did 15 curls, 15 presses, and 15 triceps, again in honor of our “45” Presidents.  From there we ran to the bleachers and did 8 step ups with each leg in honor of the 8 Presidents who died in office, Harrison, Taylor, Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Harding, Roosevelt (FDR), and Kennedy.  Followed by 15 dips, 15 derkins, and 15 pullups for our “45” Presidents.  From there we ran around the northeast baseball field on the gravel road back to the concession stand where we repeated our lifting rock exercises.  We repeated this circuit three times, one less than the four planned to honor the four Presidents assassinated in office, Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, and Kennedy.

3rd Series:  Casually ran to the parking lot where we ran a suicide stopping at each goal post followed by 3 burpees in honor of the 3 Presidents born in NC or possibly SC (Andrew Jackson is listed as born in NC/SC).  Ran a sprint to the last goal post and back followed by 2 burpees for the 2 Presidents listed as born in NC, James Polk and Andrew Johnson.

4th Series:  Circled for Mary’s where we started with 31 dolly’s in honor of the 31 days William Henry Harrison served before he died.  Followed with 17 flutters honoring the 17 Presidents elected to two or more terms.  Then 14 LBC’s for the 14 Presidents that actually served a full two or more terms.  When time expired so did our rep counts in honor of our Presidents.

Snowflake closed us out with a prayer.
