Seventeen PAX celebrated the arrival of cold weather with some spirited SSH warm up, followed by a sprint workout on the (mean) streets of Arlington and the Patriot track. DR PAX Pocket Chicken and FNG Ozark (recruited mid-workout!) joined in the fun. Here’s what we did:
WARM UP: SSH; Cherry Pickers; SSH; Downward Dog; Merkins; Six-Count Seal Clap Squats; LBACs
Route 66: PAX ran between light poles, performing Six-Count Seal Clap Squats at each. PAX performed 1 rep at the first pole, then added one a rep at each interval until reaching 11. Total of 66 Six-Count Seal Clap Squats (6-CSCSs ?).
3/4 Mile AMRAP Challenge: PAX split into teams, then sprinted between exercise stations, spaced 200 meters apart, each team relieving the preceding team. Stations included AMRAP of: Merkins; Carolina Dry Docks; Plank Jacks; Lion-king squat thrusts (with cinderblock); Cinderblock Curls; Cinderblock Overhead Lunges. The PAX completed ¾ mile of sprints and six exercise stations.
THE MARY: Flutter Kicks; Box Cutters
COT: Today’s exercises emphasized forward motion. As you go through your day, think about what in your life needs a push forward. Then push it.
