Side-to-Side February 21,2018

69 Degrees with a slight breeze.  Perfect weather for 17 PAX to get better and start the day off right.  For entertainment we did a little front, back and side-to-side action on the MBE soccer field.  Good times had by all.

Special thanks to F3 Nashville’s own, Crawfish.  He made an appearance at the Vulcan and Spartan.

Block Party – The Spartan – 2/19/2018

Given the recent warm weather and approaching spring break, YHC decided it was time for the Spartan to undertake some body sculpting via the lifting of heavy objects. With 20 cinder blocks in tow, YHC showed up to MBE to find a robust number of PAX punctually awaiting an AM beatdown. And they kept coming. 21 PAX eventually posted on this damp but temperate morning at MBE. A record for the Spartan to the knowledge of YHC. And one more than anticipated. Thanks to those who generously donated some of their curls and presses to their fellow cinder-block-less PAX.

Warm up

  • SSH IC x 20
  • Straight leg stretch – Left of right/right over left
  • Imperial Walkers IC x 20
  • Plankjacks IC x 20

Distribution of coupons (28.4 lb cinder block)

Mosey to MBE field

  • Block Webbs – Swole brother of Jack Webb – Incline merkin on cinder block (CB) then shoulder press from knees: 1:1 ratio, start 1:1, then 2:2, and so on – we made it to 8:8 which was to exhaustion for YHC (will work on this and aspire to 10:10 next time the blocks come out)
  • Flutter Presses – Flutter kicks IC to 5 with CB on chest; then five presses with CB, maintains six inches position while pressing beginning on second set. Can’t remember how many sets we did, I think 4.
  • Colt 45s – Curls: start at flex position go down to 90 degrees, do x reps; go to bottom or extending positon then go up to 90 degrees, do x reps; then full curl for x reps; did 5-5-5, 10-10-10, and 15-15-15.

Mosey back to MBE parking lot

Cinder Block COBRA

  • C – Curls
  • O – Overhead Press
  • B – Block squats
  • R – Run: ran length of MBE parking lot
  • A – Abs: Big boy situps
  • Did sets of each exercise as a circuit for 10, 15, and 20.

Cinder Block Shuttle Run

  • PAX number 1&2 and form two lines 10 yards apart. First PAX from group 1 does the shuttle run by picking up a CB at the other groups line, returns CB to his line, then retrieves the second CB, then returns brick to his starting spot. Meanwhile partner is doing 10 burpees. PAX from group 2 finish burpees then do shuttle run while PAX from group 1 do burpees. Rinse and repeat x 3.

Return CBs to truck and circle up

  • Merkin waterfall – 3 rounds adding one merkin each round while all hold plank position

How much burpee could a wood chuck burpee if a wood chuck could chuck burpee?

37 PAX including 3 FNGs (Welcome Belding, Lost & Weagle) posted for a strangely warm and somewhat soggy December morning.  Solid crowd for this time of year!

Similar to The Spartan workout last week (repping on 26 counts for the number of points Auburn scored in the Iron Bowl), we repped on 28 counts for the number of points Georgia put up against Auburn in the SEC Championship.  Bulldogs exercised in celebratory fashion while the Tigers exercised for punishment.

Workout was as follows:

Warmup:

SSH x28

Prisoner squat x28

Fluter kick x28

Little Baby Crunch (LBC) x28

 

The Thang:

14 minute burpee tabata (continuous burpees for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, rinse and repeat 28 times or for 14 minutes)

One lap cooldown mosey around the park

14 minute box jump tabata – same sequence as the burpee tabata, but we mixed in dips and decline merkins on multiples of 7 (the number of points Auburn scored)

 

Cooldown:

Circle up on the skate park for some core:

Flutter kicks x28

American hammers x28

Jack Webb x28 in multiples of 2
