On to the Streets of Sparta!

AO: Traveling AO-West Springfield HS

QIC: Nano

The PAX: Derecho, Hightower, POP Fly, El Niño, Ashe, Obadiah

WarmUp: The PAX were a little tight after IPC3 so we started with a little fellowship jog. Then SSH, jogged a little more, Willy Mayes Haze, arm circles, Michael Phelps, and cherry pickers

The Thang: The PAX continued for tour of the facility:

  • Run to cones: Count up, 1 burpee/ 2 frog jumps, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, and ended with 11 burpees.

At West Springfield, the home of the Spartans, it was time for a Spartan quote:

“He who sweats more in training bleeds less in war.“

  • Run to bus lane and all PAX lined up along the road for some Ricky Bobby Planks:
  • All PAX in a plank
  • Last man hopped on left foot to front of line
  • Repeat with right foot
  • Repeat with broad jumps
  • We made it through the line about 5x for each exercise

“There’s no room for softness… not in Sparta. No place for weakness. Only the hard and strong may call themselves Spartans. Only the hard, only the strong.” -Dilios

  • Circle the poles- we ran circles around the 26 street poles with fast feet

“The Spartans are the equal of any men when they fight as individuals; fighting together as a collective, they surpass all other men.” -Damaratus

  • On to the columns of Sparta
  • Pyramid down starting with 10 box jumps
  • 9 dips
  • 8 box jumps …

“That city is well fortified which has a wall of men instead of brick.”

Mary: Al Gore ring of fire with 10 squats each, then Sharon Stones, Glees, American Hammers, 6”, Freddie Mercury, Zeus in-outs

COT: IPC is a time where we are pushing each other to achieve things we wouldn’t do alone. This is evidence of the fact that we can achieve more than we think and should be setting our sights higher. Dream bigger, set more challenging goals, get out of your comfort zone and begin failing fast so you can learn from your mistakes and more forward!
