Backblast #051 – Crescent Park was Established in 1858

YHC worked as a true CTA (certified tourism ambassador) this morning by spouting off a couple of facts about the mini-park known as Crescent Park. FYI, it was established in 1858 and is only about 1 acre.

Mosey to Crescent Park for…

The Thang:

PAX went on a recon around the mini-park by running down a curvy brick road (Crescent St.) that lead into a nicely lit staircase that flowed gently upward for 265 feet. Total circle to arrive back at the beginning was 2/10 of a mile.

Upon arriving back at the start, the PAX circled for:

Round 1:

20 Werkins (IC)
20 Flutter Kicks (IC)
20 Gorilla Humpers (IC)

Do another lap around the mini-park.

Round 2

20 Merkins (IC)
20 LBC (OYO)
20 Copperhead Jump Squats (IC)

Do another lap around the mini-park.

Circle up for a circuit advertised as “The Crazy-Tough Ab Workout You Can Do With a Bench” the PAX began the following:

Round 3

Bear crawl reach
Feet-elevated cross-body mountain climber
Plyo bench plank hold
Bear crawl step down

Perform the exercises above in the order listed for 20 seconds each. Repeat-O for a total of 4 rounds (about 5.5 minutes total). For a video explanation of the above ‘core’ exercises, click here.

Qnote: LOTS AND LOTS of mumble chatter during these rounds. I believe every member of the PAX really enjoyed themselves and would love to do more of this in the future, lol.

Mosey back to the AO.

As the PAX recovered from the run back, YHC read a portion of the daily F3 Q source on – listening. For the full article, follow the link below:

Huge props to my man Stalin. He lead the PAX on our last stair climb as well as lead the run back to the AO. During the run, the rest of the PAX began to sing the lyrics from the Rocky Balboa movie – Getting Strong Now. Excellent work this morning Stalin!
