16 Men (and one dog) decided to celebrate the voyage of Christopher Columbus with a beatdown at The Matrix. With the disclaimer disclaimed, we jumped right into the first exercise. It went something like this:
-Merkins x 18
-LBC x 15
-Diamond Merkin x 15
Mosey to lower parking lot and circle up.
-SSH x 25
-Low Slow Squat x 25
-Mountain Climber x 25
-Rock Hopper x 20
Mosey back up and to the land of the stumps.
Pyramid of Pain
-Incline Merkins on Tires x 10
-Full Situps w/ feet under tires x 10
-Jump Ups on the stumps x 10
-Dips on the stumps x 10
-Run to playground for pullups (as many as you can in good form)
Rinse & Repeat. Round 2 = 20 reps, Round 3 = 30 reps, Round 4 = 20 reps, Round 5 = 10 reps
Various Plankoramas between each set w/ different PAX leading (Thanks Ice9 for the Makhtar Ndiayes)
Mosey to big wall on the front of school.
-Wall Walk as far as you can go then straight into People’s Chair
-People’s Chair with hands out front and heels up. Each Pax counts down from 10 = total 160 count (partially in German)
-20 Derkins OYO
Mosey back to cars mixing in butt kickers, high knees, then all you got sprint.
-Flutters x 20 (5 slow count)
-Dollies x 20 (5 slow count)
-LBCs x 30
-1 minute of Burpees
The Naked Moleskin:
It was a nice cool morning for a beat down with a bigger than usual crowd at The Matrix. After YHC claimed this was “my workout”, I was quickly told otherwise by Snowflake’s four legged friend that he was in charge of the COP. I had planned for more merkins and more LBCs, but I could not keep my cadence together with all of his barking and attempted Q Jacking so I had to bail and move us down to the lower lot. Just for the record, the dog had a better cadence call than me.
Really great work by all today. The round of 30 jump ups got pretty tough on the wet stumps. I was very glad we didn’t have any Stump Hugger wannabes with us. YHC didn’t plan on having 16 PAX show up, so I should have changed up the wall walk as several got bunched up at the back. Also, about half way through the People’s Chair/Count I realized maybe I should have gone with 5 counts instead of 10. The legs were severely shaking about half way through.
