It was another beautiful day at AO Mastodon, and we had 8 PAX (Noodles, TBTF, Hotbox, Gummibear, Archive, Jazz Hands, Captain Crunch, Banks) show up for the promised upper body shredding. As an added bonus, the forecasted wind did not materialize, so with the sun shining thanks to daylight savings time, our PAX headed off for a beatdown in fantastic weather.
Warm-O-Rama: The Usual
- 7x Motivators
- 15x Tin Soldiers
We started with a mosey through AO Mastodon completing the following exercises along the way:
- Route 66 – Stop at each light post and complete 1 Burpee, increasing burpees at each light post until 11 are completed – 66 total burpees
- Flat Tire – The PAX partnered up and performed a wheelbarrow followed by derkins in the following counts: 4 steps wheelbarrow, 1 Derkin; 8:2, 12:3,… finishing with 40 steps wheelbarrow and 10 Derkins. (This was definitely a challenge to complete and the PAX traded roles frequently)
- Bataan Death March – Run in a line and the last PAX drops and does 5 Burpees, and then catches back up. We completed 1 round and finished at the C.O.O.T.I.E.S station (Shoutout to Captain Crunch for the naming rights)
Thang 2: Interval training
We completed sets of Pullups, Burpees, Merkins, & Dips. Starting at 5 reps each and increasing to 10 reps each in 2 minute intervals.
- 20x LBC’s
- 20x Oblique LBC’s to each side
Prayers for Jazz hands Mom on her upcoming surgery, his coworker, and for his knee to heal. Prayers for a strong week, and for TBTF to get good news about his job.
