I always appreciate the opportunity to lead a workout. I’ve also enjoyed #Pantheon each time I’ve been there. Its a solid AO, with a lot of opportunity/locations to dish out the pain!
I decided with this workout, that I wanted to go simple. Every time someone brings a deck of cards, I always think it will be easy and inevitably end up completely gassed.
5:15 Disclaimer and off we went…
Mosey around the parking lot with some dynamic stretching. Circle up and run through several warm-up exercises. The usual suspects were there: SSH, Imperial Walkers, SSH, Hill Billy Walkers, SSGH, Merkins, Planks, etc. You get the drill.
So cards it was – although with a slight twist. Rather than each suit representing an exercise, the suit and the number/face card provided a matrix that was used to dish out more varied pain…
Each PAX took turns selecting a card from the deck and looking up the exercise on my phone (a bit hard to read).
