Connect 4 Beat Down – Jolly 3/27/2021

15 Pax showed up on a beautiful Saturday morning at AO Tar Pit for a Connect 4 inspired beat down!

WOR: Motivators, Arm Circles, Michael Phelps, Tappy Taps, Quad Stretches.

Once the Pax were warmed up and ready to go we headed over to the Tar Pit track. We did a schoolyard pick to spilt into two teams. Captains Shiplap (Red Team) and Big Mac (Black Team) carefully picked the Pax they would go to battle with. Not surprisingly, Tortuga was a top pick while Jolly was nice enough to let everyone else be selected before he committed to a team.

Now that the teams were picked it was time for the competition to begin! There were 8 stations spread out around the track. Each player would take a Connect 4 token with them as they made their way around the track completing all 8 exercises along the way.

Station 1 – 25 Merkins

Station 2 – 25 Lunges

Station 3 – 25 Big Boy Situps

Station 4 – 10 Burpees

Station 5 – 25 Merkins

Station 6 – 40 Squats

Station 7 – 25 American Hammers

Station 8 – 10 Burpees

Each time a Pax completed a lap they were able to play their Connect 4 token.

In addition, opposing team Pax could challenge each other in a race. One Pax would sprint a lap around the track while the other would complete 25 burpees. The first to complete the challenge would take the loser’s token and be able to play two tokens their next time around. Tortuga and Big Mac were the only ones to attempt the challenge. Not surprisingly, Big Mac easily won despite Tortuga putting up one of his fastest lap times.

Official records are unclear, but I believe Big Mac’s black team was the clear Connect 4 winner!
