The BackBlast:

Heritage Harbor is a fun AO location. There’s lots of variety in the workout options, and a small, friendly group of PAX.

We started with 5 core principles and then a mosey.

The centerpiece of this workout was an exercise ladder. I ask the PAX to imagine a 6 foot rope ladder on the floor in front of them. We would do exercises in-and-out of the ladder boxes. I’ll call them “boxes” rather than “holes” after a long mumblechatter about making sure you use the right holes.

  • Use a mode of transportation to go down the ladder.
  • Complete an exercise at the end of the ladder.
  • Go back down the ladder.
  • Complete the exercise at the other end of the ladder.
  • Repeat.

So here are reps we did:

  • 2 feet in then 2 feet out of the ladder boxes. 3 merkins at each end.
  • Boxing shuffle with 1 foot forward. 3 jungle boy squats at each end.
  • Diagonal bursts through the box. 3 jump-and-catches at the end.
  • Scissors in-and-out of the ladder boxes. 3 speed skaters at the end.
  • Basketball dribbles. 3 Bobby Hurleys at the end.
  • Fast steps in-and-out of the ladder boxes. 3 knee pull-downs.

We took a quick break to a do a run and 9-count exercise in each corner of the parking lot: 9 crunchy frogs and 9 jungle boy squats.

We got back to the start and then took some suggestions from the PAX:

  • Mr Clean suggested lunges, then squats at both ends.
  • Blade Runner suggested bear crawls then burpees at both ends (!)
  • Olympus suggested A-skips and then mountain climbers at both ends.

We finished with three more rounds featuring bunny hops, boxing shuffles, LBCs, big boys and surfees.
