YHC and Snapshot arrived at 0430 for a little EC. YHC headed off on a 4 mile pre-run which was cut a mile short because of extreme lower abdominal pressure, AKA a Trump type situation, ….thankfully YHC was able to take advantage of his LA Fitness membership for a pit stop.
Once YHC composed himself and returned to the AO he welcomed the PAX in attendance and started off on a 2 lap mosey which consisted of Nur, ButtKickers, High Knees, Carioca both ways and a short sprints. After the Mosey the PAX circled up for a quick COP
Strawberry Pickers IC 9
Windmills IC 9
SSH’s IC 9
Michael Phelps OYO 9 high and 9 low
YHC explained that the concept made sense in his mind but that doesn’t mean it was going to make sense in practice but we gave it a go anyways….
9 Inning Baseball Ladder of Pain
The Ladder of Pain was divided into 9 innings with a top half and a bottom half of the inning. The concept was that the PAX would complete the exercise and corresponding count for the top 1/2 of the first inning then go for a short run and return to complete the same exercise and count for the bottom 1/2 of the inning then go for a short run and return to complete the previous exercise/count and move to the next top 1/2 of the inning and complete the that exercise and count, go for a run and return to complete the previous exercise for the bottom 1/2 of the inning plus the exercises for the bottom half of this inning, go for a short run and return to move to the top of the 3rd inning and complete the corresponding exercise and count plus the previous 2 exercises count for the top half of innings 1 and 2.
The counts of each exercise corresponded with the number of total outs a team would experience at the end of a given inning…
Top 1/2 of inning 3 would be 3 Burpees, 6 Merkins, and 9 American Hammers. PAX goes for a run returns and completes bottom 1/2 of Inning 3. 3 Burpees, 6 Merkins, and 9 American Hammers. PAX goes for a run returns and completes top 1/2 of Inning 4. 3 Burpees, 6 Merkins, 9 American Hammers and 12 Carolina Drydocks. PAX goes for a run, returns and completes bottom 1/2 of Inning 4. 3 Burpees, 6 Merkins, 9 American Hammers and 12 Carolina Drydocks. This pattern continued through Inning 9. Almost all of the PAX in attendance completed the baseball game and at least 96 Merkins + 54 Burpees if those count for those participating in the March Merkin challenge.
