14 men kicked off their Friday morning with a good sweat at The Swamp. About 1/2 left with their rucks, and the rest of them did this:
Short mosey up and around one of the large parking lots, and stop in the front of the Sprint store for COP:
SSHx25,merkin x 10, IW x 20, windmill x 15, squat x 20, small arm circles (20 F/20R), large arm circle (10F/10R).
Take a lap around the parking lot and stop at the same spot for Tabata: 8 exercises, 8 sets of each exercise, 20 secs per set, and 10 secs rest in between each set. The exercises were:
- Carolina Dry Dock
- Mountain climbers
- Freddie Mercury
- Jumping Lunges
This is my ‘go to’ workout when I have no time to plan a workout. I accepted the Q invitation from Cha Ching last week, and I didn’t look at the date. When the reminder came through on Tuesday, I thought,’ oh crap, not this week!’ Work and family obligations have been especially challenging lately, and I was not planning on squeezing in anything else this week. But, I canceled on Cha Ching the last time he scheduled me, and I didn’t want to do it a 2nd time. So, the Tabata fit the bill. You can make this workout as hard as you like depending on which exercises you pick. Today’s workout was about in the middle of the tough scale and I designed it to suit my current fitness level and my sore knee.
There was very little mumble chatter today, save for one moment when one of the Pax let out a rather loud release of gas (not sure who). Someone said, ‘dude, you may want to check that’, and the response was ‘no, I’m good.’ That made me laugh. Not sure why fart humor still makes mature men crack up.
We had a good crowd today and it was nice to see some new and familiar faces, and also a banged up face (hope you are feeling better Jedi). I’m glad I was able to fit in this Q and, as always, it was a privilege to lead such a fine group of men.
