The Maul

15 hearty souls arrived at The Maul this morning for a healthy beatdown.  Here’s what we did.

The thang:

Mosey to center parking lot for warm up: 20 SSH, 15 merkins, 20 mountain climbers, 20 slow squats.  (All IC)

Mosey to fountains for: 15 derkins IC, set of 11’s – dips + step ups, 1 lap around both buildings, 15 derkins IC, 10 burpees OYO.

Back to parking lot and get in groups of three.  Line up ~20 yds across from one another.  For every group, one man bear crawls from one side to the other, and the group relays back and forth while the two on the outside do dollies and LBCs.  Keep going for 5 min.  This was somewhat challenging but not terrible.  Good for the abs and core.  10 burpees OYO.

Mosey to back hill behind movie theater.  Nice and steep.  Set of 11’s with donkey kicks at the bottom and merkins at the top.  Judging by the reactions of the PAX, this was the low point of several peoples’ week… and a borderline bad idea.

Parking lot of Mary: 15 Russian Twists, 20 flutters, 15 heels to heaven, protractor.

Finish with another hill exercise.  In groups of three, take turns running up and down while the 2 waiting do “in and out” merkins, i.e. one regular, one wide, one regular, one narrow, one regular, etc.


Convergences in Area 51: next Wednesday 12/24 at Anvil and Wednesday 12/31 at the Maul

Movie Night: “Unbroken” January 10 at Stonecrest.  Details on weekly e-mail with link.

Moleskin: For YHC, my first time back at The Maul since Dromedary started a few weeks back.  Wanted to deliver an old-fashioned beatdown to honor the site where so many great ones have been handed down. Thanks to MT and the PAX for the opportunity to lead.
