10/26/17 Vulcan Vision Quest

22 PAX braved the Vulcan AO’s first temps in the mid-40s and the predawn darkness to post in the gloom!  It is staying dark in the morning for one more week before the Daylight Savings Time transition next week.  YHC is thankful for the dedication of these men who motivate each other.  What a great feeling it is to GET BETTER together as we sharpen each other!

A tabata interval is 30 seconds of work (for a given exercise) with 10 seconds of rest, typically performed for 8 intervals or 4 minutes.  Mosey over to the stage.  PAX performed tabata box jumps – 20 seconds of max rep box jumps on the stage then 10 seconds of rest for 8 intervals.

PARTNER WORK – CONCRETE MASONRY UNITS!

PAX partnered back up at the cones with their cinder blocks (1 per team).

Next phase included 4 exercises:  1) block thrusters, 2) block sit up (lying flat on back, arms fully extended w/ block, perform sit up with arms extended to upright position with arms fully extended overhead in a press position), 3) hand release merkins 4) 100 yd sprint.  Rep scheme was “10!”.

One partner would work at a time, while the other rested.  Partners rotate through the exercises.  Partner A would do 10 thrusters, partner B 10 sit ups, partner A 10 merkins.  Then sprint together.  Partner B 9 thrusters, partner A 9 situps, partner B 9 merkins and continue to rotate accordingly down to 1.
