The BackBlast:


It was a pleasant 25 degrees this morning, and the AO had a beautiful fresh light coat of snow.   Quickly stated the mission and disclaimed the disclaimer, moved straight into warm-o-rama foregoing the customary mosey as YHC made sure we had a lot of work to keep us warm and busy.

  • Toy Soldiers x 10 (IC)
  • String Rippers x 10 (IC)

The Thang:

Part 1: The Ring of Fire – YHC set up 10 different exercise stations in a circle each Pax started at their own station and had one minute to complete as many reps as possible of the exercise designated for that station.  At the end of the minute PAX had 10 seconds to “recover” and move to next station in the circle.  All PAX went around the ring twice.  Exercises were:

1. Burpees
2. High Knees
3. Squat Jumps
4. Merkins
5. Hold Low Plank
6. Mountain Climbers
7. LBCs
8. Hand Release Merkins
