Backblast #107 - Sharing the LOVE on V-Day

Being Valentine’s Day, pax were asked what exercises they LOVED (or hated)  as they HC’d, and YHC definitely was taking notes.

Pax: Mad Cow, Kraut, Miss Daisy, Forrest, BasicBro, Radio, Hasselhof, Fresh Cream, QIC Bald Eagle

WARM-O-RAMA:

20 SSH
 Stretches - Hamstring stretches & trunk twists

.75 Mile run downhill to the Bunker

THE THANG: 

After entering the Bunker, the pax shed some layers to adjust to the balmy temps.

First exercised was Reverse Al Gore Squats - the pax linked arms with backs against round column squatted, held, and stood back up. 5x

15x Merkins (per Hasselhof)
Reverse Lunges Down Ramp to Floor 2
10x Pistol Squats each leg (per Kraut)
Reverse Lunges Down Ramp to Floor 1
15x Dirty Hook-ups (per Mad Cow)

20x Freddie Mercuries (per Fresh Cream)
Bear Crawl to Floor 2
10x Burpees (per (absent) Snoop)
Bear Crawl to Floor 3
Merican Thunder (per Radio) 

BasicBro LOVES Dora type exercises, so we obliged (in a modified way) by starting at Floor 3 where 1 pax started with squats and the second pax started with LBC’s. The pax ran down the ramps to Floor 1 and ran up the stairs back to the start where they took over with the squats. The pax completed this circuit for 8 minutes.

Forrest LOVES penalty push-ups (what are those), so we finished with 15 merkins in cadence before running .75 miles back uphill to the AO starting point. 

Announcements:

- GrowRuck planning is underway for September in Chicago. 
 - Queen (diet) Challenge upcoming for March, stay tuned.
 - Need Q’s to sign up. Forrest, Radio & Fresh Cream said they would take next week.
