23 of Charlotte’s finest gathered for an early morning breakfast at Carmel Park and start the week right.
Very brief disclaimer as it was a veteran crew this morning, though in hindsight, a warning about broken glass bottles would have been appropriate.
Fast mosey down Camilla towards Carmel Middle School, stopping for 8 burpees at each speed bump along the way.
Warm up :
Slow squats x20
Mountain Climbers x20
Peter Parkers x20
Mosey to football field. Look out for aforementioned broken glass bottle (later diligently assessed as rum) and be careful when getting over fence.
4 Laps around track, stopping at each turn for called exercises:
Lap 1: Merkins x25 (all turns)
Lap 2: LBCs (turns 1 & 3), Dollies (turn 2), Flutters (turn 4) – all x25
Lap 3: Squats (turns 1 & 3), Jump Squats (turns 2 & 4) – all x25
Lap 4: Burpees x10 (all turns)
Form Plank Circle for Ring of Fire. Mixed in RAH, LAH, RLO, LLO, Elbows, and finished with 6-inches
Mosey to endline
AYG to far goal post
Backwards run to midfield, AYG to endline
Leave track and mosey to far side of school. People’s Chair for 2 minutes, finishing with Air Presses (x20 or x25, can’t remember)
Fast mosey back up Camilla
Speed bump 1: Russian Twist x25 in cadence (selected ed by Jamboree)
Speed bump 2: 45 merkins OYO (selected by and in honor of Runstopper’s 45 birthday)
50 LBCs in cadence to finish
Great workout by the PAX this morning. The group stayed close together, and hopefully no one left anything on the table (you against you). Unfortunately, YHC didn’t know it was Runstopper’s birthday until 0610, or there would have been a lot more 45 rep exercises! #veteranmove. Happy birthday, RS! #old
The group was pretty quiet at the beginning, though I’ve come to realize that my hat blocks out a lot of noise (#shouldwearathome), but that changed with the burpee call on Lap 4 around the track. Mission accomplished. Glad YHC could wake up Steinbrenner and get him in his usual form. Also caught plenty from Simba, as was noticed by other members of the PAX. Love the chatter.
A bunch of Larry Birds out there this morning, particularly around the track. Nice work, and keep pushing men. Finishing with 100 LBCs (if we’re going in civilian count) was strong, if not very unpopular. Way to push through. Thanks to Flutie for taking us out. Always an honor to have the reigns – thank you for the opportunity!
