10 Cherry Pickers w/ Back Clap IC
10 Overhead Claps IC

The snow was too deep at Centennial Park so the Pax grabbed their coupons and we moseyed to the 7th St Parking Garage. What a blessing it was to be able to run up the parking garage instead of the flat surface around the park!

2 Rounds:
20 Coupon Pullovers (lying on back, coupon starts pressed over chest, lower to the ground over your head, raise back over chest and down to pelvis, then back to pressed overhead for one rep)
20 Four Count Flutter Kicks, coupon pressed overhead
20 Hip Thrusters, coupon on pelvis

Run to the top of the parking garage and back down, PUTS

2 Rounds:
20 Side Lunges with coupon
20 Shoulder to Shoulder Overhead Coupon Press
10 Bulgarian Split Squats, with coupon (in a lunge position with back foot on an elevated surface like a chair or outdoor wall, squat on the weight-bearing leg with knee never moving forward of the ankle, 10 times per side)

Run to the top of the parking garage and back down, PUTS

2 Rounds:
20 American Sledge Hammers
15 Coupon Squat Thrusters
10 Star Jumps

Run to the top of the parking garage and back down, PUTS

Pax kicked in the afterburners this AM so we still had 20 minutes to go at this point – TIME TO RUN IT BACK

Repeat everything above, but only one round of each exercise group, and only run half way up the parking garage
