24 pax including 1 FNG laid it all out on the pavement at a Mud Run convergence at The Rock. The pax from The Rock, Day Zero, Olympus, and Ascent powered through a tuff hour of Gear and Sprints. The Hoff and YHC got together to discuss how to bring out all the toys to give the pax a beat down while keeping the heart pounding for an entire hour of cardio and anaerobic work and we were giddy at the opportunity. We also discussed and agreed that this will become a regular monthly occurrence (more on this in the moleskin below). Here’s what we did:
Follow Mall Cop for a mosey around the parking lot and circle up for a quick COP:
SSH x 20, IW x 20, Slow Squats x 20, Merkins x 20
The Main event: Partner Up (size and speed don’t matter) and follow the Hoff and YHC through the gear stations for a quick tutorial on proper form. Each team then lined up at 1 of the gear stations and partner 1 pounded it out on the gear while partner 2 sprints down to a light post and back, total of 150 yards. Flapjack, then plank until all partner teams are done. YHC or The Hoff would call to rotate once all teams were done so that all teams would move to the gear station to the right. We continued this on the stations for the next 50 minutes.
6 MOM lead by The Hoff with Daisy Dukes, Flutters, Get-ups, and LBCs
That was an awesome workout this morning and all the pax pushed it hard! The Hoff and YHC had a blast putting this one together and it delivered everything we wanted. This was one where the pax got out of it what they put into it and judging by the sweat flying everywhere the pax got their money’s worth. We sprinted a total of 1.75 miles during the stations and once our heart rates got up they stayed there for the duration.
We’ve decided this will become a regular occurrence with The Rock and Olympus converging every 5 or 6 weeks alternating between the 2 AOs for this style of HIIT with the gear and sprints.
Welcome out to F3 to our FNG Billy Jean (John M.) who was EHed by World Tour (Michael Jackson). This was a rough one to start out with but you hung in there and gave it your all! Hope to see you back out in the gloom soon!
