Shake ‘n Bake (and Lungeball!)

AO: Patriot

QIC: Citrus

THE PAX: Bone, Cable Guy, Elvis, Fish Fry, Lazlo, Lucius, Maguire, Spokes, Wedding Singer, YHC

WARMUP: SSH, Hillbillies, IW, WMH, cherry pickers, Don Quixote, Downward Dog, scapular merkins

THE THANG:
Split up into two teams for some friendly competition (and I only say "friendly", because YHC went 0-5).

First challenge:
400 yard run, then chipper-style through the following:

  • 10 burpees
  • 20 sumo squats
  • 30 mountain climbers (IC)
  • 40 Shoulder taps (IC)
  • 50 SSH (IC)
  • 25 merkins

The entire team needs to finish the run before anyone starts the first exercise (burpees). For each exercise after the run, move on to the next exercise after two PAX complete all reps. Plank/Al Gore/pickup-the-6/whatever if your team finishes the challenge first. (h/t to…#freestate, I think)

Second challenge:
Lungeball! Half of a team stood on the goal line and the other half on the 5 yard line, facing each other. Lunge walk (half the team is doing forward lunges, half reverse) to the 50 yard line, throwing a ball to your teammates. Every time it hits the ground – burpee. Credit to Subprime/Horsepunch for this one.

Third challenge:
Same as first challenge, but Ricky Bobby the run.

Fourth challenge:
Same as third challenge, but add 3 squats to Ricky Bobby.

Fifth challenge:
Lungeball! This time, two balls per team. Twice the balls, twice the burpees!

MARY: Flutter kicks, LBCs, leg lift spelling

COT: My 16-year old son spent almost an hour telling me about an 8-book series that he’s reading, and he said I should check it out. I did, and I was surprised to find I am enjoying it – even better, we have something new to talk about that he enjoys. Find opportunities to try things that your family, friends, coworkers are excited about, that you otherwise wouldn’t. You may find something you enjoy, and regardless you will definitely strengthen your relationship.
