Channeling beatdowns from 2 of my favorite PAX (C4 and Cricket) this morning took a team of 3 just to get it done. What happens when you combine the C.L.I.M.B.S routine with the short, short, long? Nothing good. Nothing good at all.
Moseyed up the hill, down the stairs past the wrestling room, across the parking lot to the bus lanes wayyyy in the back. We circled up at the base of the hill (yes, that one) for:
10x Weed Pickers
OYO Sun Gods (frontwards and backwards)
Time to explain the rules
This routine was designed to work in groups of 3 with each member performing a separate task but ultimately working together. 1 PAX runs up the hill all the way to the top to the last light pole where the hill evens out and back while the other 2 partners perform an exercise from the C.L.I.M.B.S routine. 1 partner holds a plank while the other performs 10x reps of the exercise and they rinse and repeat until the 3rd member returns. Then, all 3 members take a long mosey all the way back up the hill, down the parking lot to the walkway, go past the wrestling room, down the stairs, across the parking lot and back to the base of the hill. The group then moves on to the next exercise in the C.L.I.M.B.S routine. 6 rounds means every team member gets equal treatment on the runs and exercises. The exercises in the routine are:
C – Crab Cakes
L – Lunges
I – Imperial Walkers
M – Merkins
B – Burpees
S – Squats
5 rounds in and we had to mosey back to the flag. We circled up for a round of Ring of Fire Squats since we didn’t get to do them. Still a minute left so we knocked out a few more Burpees. Some faster than others (Grylls).
Name-0-rama, praises, and prayers (Grylls’ 2.0, Silverado’s M, and Stopwatch)
Naked Man Moleskin:
Awesome morning men. There is a lot to be thankful for in all of our lives and there is plenty that needs our prayers. I’ll have major FOMO being gone for the next 5 weeks so keep the dumpster burning until I can make it back! I would not have done that routine without the support of you men and this community. Despite all that is happening outside of the beatdowns this is a safe (sometimes) space where we can support each other, give each other crap, and fellowship with each other. I am eternally grateful for each one of you men.
Already can’t wait to make it back. SYITG
