Cold cold morning at the Clinic. Not sure if that was the reason the attendance was the lowest in months or the Slack chatter that Saluki may show up in leather chaps. Either way, the 10 of us got after it!!
Very short mosey as YHC knew we would need the entire time to finish this BD. SSH’S, Weed Pickers, Flamingo stretch, Michael Phelps.
PAX broke up into pairs (5 groups of 2). YHC described that we would be building our communication & teamwork skills. Each pair received a sheet of paper with 6 questions. The answers to the 6 questions were posted somewhere around the AO with each having 3 exercises to do once the PAX arrived. The pair had to work together to figure out the answer, find the answer & then complete the exercises. THE KICKER – You were not allowed to talk. Talking resulted in 5 burpees per person.
Halfway through the allotted time, after watching all the PAX run around frustrated and confused, YHC told them the talking ban was over and you could communicate freely. At this point in the BD everything started to flow more smoothly, exercises were being accomplished faster, direction on where to go was easier, etc.
In totality, a team of two completed the following exercises: 100 BBS, 3 mins of sun gods, 200 Mario jumps, 100 burpees, 300 SSH’s, 2 mins of low plank, 200 squats, 100 merkins, 3 mins of shoulder raises, 150 bonnie blairs, 200 LBC’s, 100 Carolina drydocks, 125 lunges, 150 Freddie Mercury, 100 monkey humpers, 200 shoulder taps & 300 American hammers.
YHC started by explaining the lesson behind today’s BD. In marriage, in work, in life, communication is key. When we couldn’t communicate with each other the BD was chaotic & stressful. The minute we were allowed to communicate again things flowed much smoother.
