5 HIM posted on a humid and muggy morning ready to donate to the sweat collection pool on the courts.  The Beast was again on scene and was spotted early hiding out on court #2.  The mumble chatter ensued, someone sounded “the horn”, the disclaimer was given and this is how it went down…

The Warmup

  • SSH  –  x20  –  IC

The PAX were then instructed to remain in plank position while the following were performed all IC:

  • MERKINS  –  x5
  • SHOULDER TAPS  –  x10
  • MERKINS  –  x5
  • PLANK JACKS  –  x10
  • MERKINS  –  x5
  • MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS  –  x10
  • MERKINS  –  x5

Mosey one complete lap around the dog park and tennis courts and it was time to get to work…

 

The Thang

Now known as HARD 11’s…Each PAX lines up and performs an exercise for 11 reps then sprints to the other end of the court and performs a different exercise for 11 reps.  Sprinting back and forth each time decreasing the number of reps per exercise by 1 until finished for a total of 66 reps per exercise or 132 total reps per round.

ROUND 1

  • MERKINS  –  BIG BOY SITUPS
  • MOSEY FULL LAP AROUND COURTS AND DOG PARK

ROUND 2

  • SQUATS  –  LUNGES
  • MOSEY FULL LAP AROUND COURTS AND DOG PARK

ROUND 3

  • BURPEES  –  LBCs
  • MOSEY FULL LAP AROUND COURTS AND DOG PARK

On the final lap we ended at court #2 where The Beast was waiting (this time with a towel attached to dry our hands).  Time to dish out some punishment in the form of penalties by choice…Each PAX took a turn where they called out a punishing exercise.  The remaining PAX must perform this exercise for as long as the shot caller can hang suspended from The Beast.

  • YHC chose BURPEES
  • GROUPER chose SPLIT JACKS
  • VANELLOPE chose MERKINS
  • HAKA chose PETER PARKERS
  • NO-SEE-UM chose SWEAT ANGELS

Almost everyone held on for roughly a full minute (with the exception of Grouper and Vanellope who seemed to have some superior grip strength and it showed).  Perhaps they have been secretly practicing with the shakeweight on our off days…

***Workout Complete***
