1.23.2020 – "Nolan Richardson"

It was a snowy morning, but 6 faithful PAX (Noodles, Shiplap, Captain Crunch, Hotbox, Gummibear, Banks) showed for the beatdown. As YHC was planning the workout, I stumbled across a fully baked workout, so I decided to try it out. We completed the Nolan Richardson verbatim and finished right on time!

01.14.2020 – EC Beatdown

Thanks to Gummibear’s prompting, 4 faithful PAX ( Dovetail, Shiplap, Gummibear, Banks) showed up for an EC Beatdown at AO Mastodon this morning. The weather was unseasonably warm, so the PAX quickly got after it.

Warm-O-Rama:

  • 7x Motivators
  • 15x Tin Soldiers
  • Run Around the Hill

The Thang:

Greta 1-2-3 – The PAX partnered up and completed as a team 100 Blockees, 200 Squat to Overhead Press, and 300 Kettle Bell Swings. While one PAX was working towards to the count, the other ran to the top of the hill and back.

Thankful for getting out with our brothers and prayers for those who were unable to attend.

It was another beautiful day at AO Mastodon and we had 7 PAX ( Archive, Noodles, Captain Crunch, TBTF, Ship Lap, Gummibear & Banks) show up for a Thursday morning thriller. In typical fashion, YHC did not have a fancy workout put together, but made sure it would be intense for all involved!

Warm-O-Rama:

  • 7x Motivators
  • 15x Tin Soldiers IC
  • 10x Merkins IC
  • 2x Karaoke runs
  • 1 Mile run

Thang 1: Jacob’s Ladder

Run to the top of the hill, complete 1 burpee and run back down. Repeat with 2 burpees, finishing at a total of 7 burpees.

Thang 2: Upper Body Circuit

Circuit consisted of the following:

  • Pullups (10x)
  • Derkins with Knee Tuck (20x)
  • Dips (30x)

Complete 1 round, then decrease Pullups by 1, Derkins by 2, and Dips by 3. Continue until down to 1 or time is called. Most PAX finished on the round of 6.

From there we moseyed to the flag and called it a day!

COR/NOR/COT:

There was a general feel of gratitude for many things from the group as a whole. Prayers for Captain Crunch and family to maintain health, and for continued growth of the group.
