It is well known that YHC hates running, and I’ve been pretty successful at avoiding it for the past few months.  That said, its value is recognized, so I decided to work some into today’s workout.  But, true to my Tweeted word, there was no running, only a lot of moseying.

The pax were treated to a few new “dynamic warmup” exercises today – walking lunges and Toy Soldier.  It’s amazing what you can find on the internet.  Just thank Low Tide for being my guinea pig earlier this week and culling out some of the less masculine options.

The duck walks and frog jumps are so much harder than they look.  Add in all the jump squats we did today and we may be in for some sore quads about this time tomorrow.

The Hill work was good.  First time for Ascent.  Blitzen and Weeblo were noted for killin’ it.  Nice work by the entire pax.  That hill isn’t too imposing; however, it’s more of a long, slow climb that sneaks up on you.

By the time we were halfway through our playground rotation, I think we all realized we had done enough jump squats and Mary for the day.  We did audible the jump squats down to regular squats and started mixing up the Mary work.

Pax Choice was fun and another first for Ascent.  For our debut, we were introduced to the Butterfly Situp.  We agreed it was awkward, and it prompted one pax to begin working on his “back blast”.  And, in a first, we had a 10-count called as an exercise — way to moderate!

Lots of fun today, guys.  Thanks for allowing me to Q; it’s always an honor.

Butterfly sit-ups way better than hugging stumps. Painfully fun!

I have the Q at Ascent next Saturday. Start scrounging up kettlebells and other heavy, awkward things.

I’ll bring Wilson’s fat uncle – 20 lb slam ball.
