The BackBlast:


With clear skies and temps in the low 60s, we couldn’t ask for better weather to host downrange pax Quasimodo from Jackson, MS and his 2.0s, Reepicheep and Zidane, for some animal-themed fun.  Full disclosure – YHC came up with this workout in the car on the way over, but it didn’t disappoint.

The Thang:

The Beast

Mosey with coupons to the soccer field, cones placed at baseline, 15, 30, and 45 yards.
For Set 1, pax sprint to first cone, do 6 reps of the exercise, sprint to second cone, do 6 more reps, third cone (6 reps), turn around, sprint to third cone (6 reps), second cone (6 reps), first cone (6 reps), baseline.  So for each exercise, you’re doing a down and back sprint divided up by six stops to do six reps of the exercise at each stop.  Do this for six different exercises. (6 reps at 6 stations for 6 rounds… The Beast)

  2. Coupon front raises
  3. Merkins
  4. American Hammers w/ coupon
  5. Blockees
  6. Lunges with overhead coupon

Naked Man Moleskin:

  • YHC got an “I hate you” from Cheese Steak, which made my morning.
  • Reepicheep blazed through the bear crawls, crab walks, and hops and put the grown men to shame.  Wham-O reminisced about winning a crab walk race in elementary school.
