The PAX descended on The Bee Hive full of whatever they ate for dinner last night. Some were still asleep. YHC came prepared for battle. The battle was not against the PAX or the weather. The foe was not the snow or the slight wind. The enemy was … myself. I brought with me a bad attitude to The Bee Hive. That attitude was quickly put in check when Dropbox showed up even though he has a torn meniscus and is getting surgery on Tuesday, prayers up. This reminded me that no matter how I felt it could be worse. Dropbox will have his surgery and recover to make a triumphant Kotter return to The Gloom soon.
Check yo ‘tude at the door!
The PAX partnered up (Flame was odd man out). While partner 1 exercised, partner 2 counted and vice versa.
Each PAX had two minutes to perform as many repetitions as possible of each exercise.
1 mile run
The mile run was not completed due to icy conditions. Here are the results:
Round 1 Part 1 (baseball field) Partner-up 200 push-ups total, one person does push-ups until partner makes his way around the bases carrying bucket of stone, two plates (25s, 35s, or 45s), or single or double sandbag. Part 2: repeat the same with 200 squats.
Round 2: run to playground, then partner-up in groups of 3 to do pull-up/burpee ladder (one person in group does 1 pull-up other do 1 burpee then switch until everyone does one, and the progress to 2 each and so forth to 10 or 10 minutes whatever comes first.
Round 3 part 1: run to football field partner-up; then one person starts with Spider-Man crawls to the 50 yard line while partner does 10 mile kicks; once partner does 10 he switches with his partner and partner does mule kicks until the 50 yard line is reached. Part 2: crab walk to end zone while partner does 10 high jumps repeat back and forth in same progression as above. Part 3: ape crawls to 50 yard line while partner does 20 sit-ups repeat same progression back and forth, Part 4 bear crawl/hold plank for 30 sec.
