It was a great way to start Valentine’s Day with a non moderate workout with lots of props.
Since the day before I had Q’ed at the Abyss and we focused on legs and abs this day we had to work our upper bodies and get our hearts pumping.
No FNG’s and a quick disclaimer was given followed by some mosey around the parking lot.
Moroccan night clubs
Low Slow Squats
Low Slow Merkin
I had setup 4 stations, we split into 4 groups and each group started with a station, transportation mode was bear crawls and crawl bears alternating after each station, goal was to complete one full circuit of the following:
-> 10 diamond merkins
-> 15 wide arm merkins
-> 20 regular merkins
-> 30 battle rope wave SC
-> 40 Shoulder taps
-> 40 plank jacks
bear crawl to…..
-> 15 big boy sit ups
-> 20 LBC’s
-> 25 slamball throws choose from 10 and 20#
-> 30 sledgehammer swings (15 each side)
-> 40 Heel Touches SC
-> 40 American hammer with slam ball
crawl bear to…
-> 10 Tire flips
-> 15 burpees
-> 20 cindy push/drag
-> 50 shoulder shrug with cindy
-> 80 calf raises
crawl bear to…
-> 15 man makers with weight (choose from weights starting at 12# up to 40# for this one and all exercises below)
-> 20 bent over rows
-> 20 biceps curls
-> 25 overhead presses
-> 30 SSH Single count
-> 40 Carolina drydocks
everyone pushed hard to complete their routines and we finished one full circuit with about 15 minutes to spare; we found a wall for some BTTW while PAX from each end will perform 3 burpees finishing up with PAX in the middle of the pack, shoulders were on fire after the full circuit and BTTW so we needed a brake for our arms, someone mentioned Captain Thor and it was a go!! unfortunately there are no grassy areas in the Bowl N Bounce parking lot so we had to choose from rocks or pavement so we went for the second, lots of mumble chatter here about tail bones but no one backed out from the legendary Captain Thor (1 big boy sit up followed by 4 american hammers, all the way to 10 BBSU and 40 AH) we finished up with one minute to spare so we added 50 LBC’s to end the bootcamp (more mumble chatter here).
Great push by everyone, some of the newer PAX had never been to a Tinsel’s workout so they were in for a big surprise, we all left in one piece, tired but better than before and with our hearts pumping fast to start a great V-Day.
We finished up with announcements, prayers and praises at COT.
Thank you Peg for the opportunity to lead!!
