Follow the Leader

9 PAX showed up to test themselves against the Validator remixed with a classic school yard game.  We were blessed with the coolest weather and lowest humidity we’ve seen in a while.

 

Pre-game

  • Disclaimers
  • Half lap mosey
  • Hamstring stretch
  • Arm circles
  • Willie Mays Hayes
  • Michael Phelps
  • Imperial Walkers
  • Raise the Roofs

 

Game

PAX filed single file line of planks at bottom of Validator.

Leader went up the validator, did an exercise, mosey down and did another exercise with concrete blocks.

PAX followed behind, one by one, after giving the man in front of them a 10 second head start.

Rinse, repeat, repeat, repeat…

PAX were responsible for getting the next exercise from the man in front of them and giving the next exercise to the man behind them.

 

Getting up the Validator was accomplished by:

  • Sprints
  • Bear Crawls
  • Burpee Hops (don’t try this at home)
  • Lunges
  • More sprints and bear crawls

 

Exercises at the top included:

  • Burpees
  • Flutterkicks
  • Merkins
  • American Hammers

 

Exercises at bottom with concrete blocks included:

  • Curls
  • Overhead Presses
  • Rows
  • Tricep Extensions
  • More Curls
  • Assorted Planks as everyone finished last cycle

 

Exciting conclusion:

  • Pull ups until you can’t. Sets of 10 with 10 second breaks.
  • COT and Name-O-Rama.

HAMMER TIME

Played the pop classic tune “U Can’t Touch This” on a vintage Bluetooth speaker for the PAX.

When the rap legend said “U Can’t Touch This” PAX completed Big Boy Sit Ups.

When he instructed us to “break it down” we took a quick break until he let us know break was over by stating “Stop – Hammer Time”.

For the remainder of the song, as you may have already guessed, it was, in fact, Hammer Time. American Hammers were done by the PAX to the beat. Or maybe not exactly to the beat. But they were done continuously.

 

13 PAX concluded the workout with COT and Name-o-Rama.
