It was a cold one at the Abyss on Wednesday. Sub-freezing temps at COT as everyone slowly made it out of their warm vehicles before starting.
Nice-long mosey to get the blood flowing and the body warm… again… sub-freezing temps.
SSH, Windmill, Hillbilly Walker, Peter Parker, Mountain Climbers, Honeymooner/Downward Dog
Take the 4 corners concept and make it into 7 to represent the different continents of Earth. In the center is the North Pole. Partner up.
One partner runs to one of the locations while the other stays in the center (North Pole) and chooses an exercise (AMRAP) until the partner returns. When the partner returns, they switch places. Repeat this until all places have been visited twice (2 different exercises at each place).
What made this fun for me was choosing exercises that were loosely connected/related to each continent/location.

North Pole-: Rotate between Sleigh Stuffers (with weight, start to the side of one foot and raise above head to opposite side of body, wash/rinse/repeat), Boxcutters, SSH’s, and American Hammers
Some of us made it through the full rotation. Some others got relatively close. Due to it being cold, I didn’t fully go over my master plan. PAX had a choice on how they and their partner would complete the 7 corners. Some chose to complete an exercise, swap with partner, then return to the same location to complete the second exercise. This was the way it was intended. Others chose to run to a location and complete both exercises before returning. This was also acceptable, however it did lessen the amount of running. As long as PAX are completing exercises, does it really matter?
Circle up for COT… annoucements, prayers… and peace out!
I really enjoyed getting my first chance to Q at the Abyss. I look forward to Q’ing again in the future… thanks Bones for the opportunity!
