Hold Al Gore while we review the 5 Core Principles:
1. Free of charge
2. Open to all Men
3. Held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
4. Led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary.
5. End with a Circle of Trust
Plagiarized from a recent Bulldog beatdown. That day Bulldog suggested we do HIIT (High-intensity Interval Training) a little differently by doing MAX effort for one minute then resting for 90 seconds. I was inspired and could not wait to share this with the pax!
1 Minute of work at maximum capacity
90 seconds of rest including slow mosey / walk back and forth in the parking lot.
We used a pair of dice to choose the exercise. Each pax took turns rolling.
3. Plank Jacks
4. Body Builder (Burpee + Plank Jack)
5. Carolina Dry Docks
6. WW2 sit ups (arms extended)
7. Mountain climber
8. Crab cake
9. Monkey humpers
10. Alternating Shoulder Taps
Either the dice are heavy on one side or we were just lucky but the predominant rolls were burpees, body builders or shoulder work. We did concede to Poehler and let him pick squats as we drew closer to the end.
12 rounds of 1 minute work + 90 seconds rest = 30 minutes.
6 minutes of Mary x 12 IC of each:
• Q’s needed at Latham Grinder. Sign up on the sheet and / or see Huggies to get plugged in.
• Several pax on the IR including Ricardo, Guiding Light, Houlihan, Nomex
YHC reminded the pax to reach out to a guy you haven’t seen in a while. He may need to hear from you. Also, if you’ve been out for a while and are feeling disconnected, reach out some someone. The pax are here for you!
YHC closed us out.
As per tradition, a participation medal in the form of an F3 sticker was offered given to every Pax member that posted this morning.
Missing you guys that are on the IR: Ricardo, Guiding Light, Houlihan, Nomex. Others? Hope to see you soon!
It was an honor.
Radiator – out.
