YHC rolled in with 70’s rock playlist ready to roll and a fever.  And the only prescription was more burpees.

Warm-o-rama:

  • Quick mosey around the parking lot
  • 20 SSH
  • 11 Weedpickers (11 was definitely the Q’s intention and not a mistake in counting reps)
  • Sun gods
  • Michael Phelps

The Thang:

YHC mapped out a 7 of diamonds workout…

Quick recap of “7 of diamonds”: In a parking lot or field, establish four points of a diamond where exercises will be performed.

  • 7 rounds of exercises are executed by the PAX.
  • Round 1 – PAX perform 7 reps of the first exercise, run to the next corner and perform 7 more reps, run to the third corner and perform 7 more reps, and run to the final corner and perform 7 more reps.
  • Round 2 – repeat with 14 reps of a new exercise @ each corner
  • Round 3 – repeat with 21 reps of a new exercise @ each corner
  • Round 4 – repeat with 28 reps of a new exercise @ each corner
  • Round 5 – repeat with 21 reps of a new exercise @ each corner
  • Round 6 – repeat with 14 reps of a new exercise @ each corner
  • Round 7 – repeat with 7 reps of a new exercise @ each corner

For this iteration the routine was:

  • 7 Burpees
  • 14 Heels to heavens
  • 21 Merkins
  • 28 Squats
  • 21 Big Boy Situps
  • 14 Bonnie Blairs
  • 7 4×4’s (It’s possible YHC didn’t do the math on total number or merkins and in the middle of this round realized we were on the hook for 196 total Merkins.  Otherwise, @Maaco might have received a special invite.)

THE TWIST!  Every time a new song began to play from our 70’s rock set list, all PAX dropped down for 5 more burpees (9 song changes meant 45 more burpees + the 28 that were scheduled for the 7 of diamonds workout).  In case you’re wondering, no matter where the PAX were in the 7 of Diamonds routine, the burpees sucked…

COT:

Great time of sharing, prayer, and coffeeteria after the workout wrapped up.  @Doughboy did get a little panicked when the playlist accidentally came back on when he thought that meant we were in for some bonus burpees.
