Back-Blast – The Loco @ The County – 6-18-19

I had mentioned in the Pre-Blast that I had been inspired lately by the increasing difficulty of the workouts so I wanted to make sure I didn’t disappoint. Based on the comments after the workout, I think everyone got their money’s worth. The following 26 PAX braved the downpours and got better:

PorkChop – from the “O”

Valdez

PewPew

Big Bird

Butcher

Pixar

Fungi

Kimble

My Pleasure

Scratch and Dent

Lobsta

Headboard

Fergie

Short Circuit

Gooooaaalll!

Dorothy

Jerry McGuire(R)

Wildflower

Splinter(FNG)

Milton

Green Wave

Eggo(R)

Storm Trooper

Airplane

Giselle

Catfish(Q)

In short, the workout didn’t need to be complex to be difficult. We started with my typical warm up:

1/2 mile mosey

25 x SSH

25 x MC

25 x Plank Jacks

50 Merkins IC

We then partnered up and started the main thang:

Bear Crawl Chasers

Partner 1 begins bear crawling around the loop(3/8 of a mile or so) while Partner 2 hard runs around the same loop until they catch Partner 1. At that point, Partner 2 starts the bear crawl and Partner 1 hard runs around the loop and so on. We completed 2 full laps.

This was challenging.

Thang 2: Circle up for the 10 minute burpee EMOM(credit: Pope) I love this and want to include it every time I Q. It’s good because it’s challenging but also allows for different fitness levels to work together and push each other. It also allows for some mumblechatter(at least for the 1st few rounds).

Recovery run to the flag

Again, I’ve been inspired by the Q’s lately. Thank you PAX for getting after it and pushing me to do the same. I feel myself pushing harder and it’s only possible with the framework this group offers.

I appreciate the opportunity to lead.
