8 pax gathered and resolved to start their year off right with some synchronized movements and a few burpees. Here’s what they did:
While the weinke called for the pax to be split into three groups and rotate through a 3-station starfish, an audible was called to keep the pax together and foster more 2nd F, if not more work.
Station 1 – The Playground:
Slow mosey to station 2
Station 2 – Concession Stand
Mosey to station 3
Station 3 – The Fence
YHC typically only Q’s at moderate sites, Ascent and Basecamp, so the pressure was on to deliver a Hydra-worthy beatdown. Knowing that Hydra pax can number from ~15-30 or so, the weinke was planned to split the pax into 3 groups and run a 3-station starfish. This would provide some recovery time between exercises, so that too was taken into consideration on the weinke. With the smaller pax size today, 3 groups would have eliminated all 2nd F, so an audible was called to keep the pax together. The downside: there was less recovery between exercises. At several times, YHC kept hearing “don’t Q it if you can’t do it” in his head. Thankfully, the only modification YHC had to make was to split Station 1 reps into 2 subsets. And, no birds were fed this gloomy morning…
As for mumble-chatter, YHC will have to leave it to the pax to sound off below, as minimal chatter was heard over the voices in his head (and the blood pounding)…
Thanks as always for the opportunity to lead the pax today. It’s an honor.
