Field Notes
Things I try to do when I Q:
1. Keep it simple. Try to think of two or three major activities to accomplish.
2. Work the whole body – upper, lower and core
3. Use the environment – use the walls, hills, grass, curbs to make the workout interesting.
4. In addition to the popular exercises, throw in a few new movements to make sure everyone is paying attention
5. Stay together – COUNT IT OUT. It’s the best way to stay together and keep everyone accountable.
6. LEAD LOUD – Speak up and be clear about what we are doing. Be encouraging, but not obnoxious
7. Be reasonable – Don’t call anything you can’t do and don’t expect everyone to get every rep. It’s ok to modify as pax.
8. Keep boot camps under 3 miles.
9. No standing around.
10. Have fun. If you didn’t laugh when Rousey sang Neil Diamond’s Coming to America on the wall climb, check your pulse.
