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
Split up into two teams for some friendly competition (and I only say "friendly", because YHC went 0-5).
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)
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.
Same as first challenge, but Ricky Bobby the run.
Same as third challenge, but add 3 squats to Ricky Bobby.
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.
