A motivated group of 6 men met at The Ranch for another test of their strength and endurance. Here is what they did:
Warm up with walking knee pulls, ankle pulls, toy soldiers, and lunge twists. Take a short mosey and circle up for COP:
All in cadence:
SSH x 30, potato pickers x 10, merkin x 10, IW x 20, mountain climber x 30/hold/6”/regular/6”/low plank/regular. LBC x 25
Take a short mosey and stop at the entrance to the drop off circle at the elementary school entrance.
ST400 – (5 rounds, 4 exercises/round, 20 reps/exercise, run a lap in between). Today, we cut it to ST350
Round 1: Merkins, Freddie Mercs, squats, burpees, run a lap
Round 2: Diamonds, flutters, alternating lunges, burpees, run a lap
Round 3: Wide arms, hello dolly’s, sumo squats, burpees, run a lap
Round 4: Staggered merkins (L/R), Rosalita’s, monkey humpers, burpees, run a lap
Round 5: Dips, pretzel crunch – stop here. We ran out of time.
Take one last Indian run around the loop and head back to the starting point.
End with the body destroyer ( lay on your back, breathe deeply, stare at the sky, and don’t talk)
This is a pretty tough workout and everyone got after it today. The 20 burpees followed immediately by the run kept the heart rate up quite well. Sasquatch ran at a swift pace around the loop this morning. I left a sweat stain on the asphalt during the warm-up and Change Order’s shirt came off after round one. Yes, it was humid. Not a lot of mumble chatter today, but Sasquatch did manage some slightly sarcastic encouragement to the group during round 3 or 4 of the burpees. We were running a bit short on time so we avoided the 5th round of burpees. We may or may have had time. Or, perhaps the Q was gassed after round 4 and could not call out another round of 20 burpees (maybe). In any event, it was a great day at the Ranch and a privilege as always to lead such a fine group of men.
