Cooler temperatures awaited the cast of regulars this morning at a workout that lived up to the pre-blast. Running and burpees.
As everyone knows, YHC LOVES excessive running and burpees. I mean LOVE them. Ok, that may be a slight overstatement. I actually somewhat enjoy running, albeit slowly….But Burpees….blah.
So why do them? Because F3 is about pushing beyond our limits. How do you get better at running? By running with faster guys. And I guarantee you that unless you actually do burpees, you will not be better at them. With that in mind, it was time to get started.
Mission Statement – done.
5 Core Principles.
1st core principle – do 1 burpee
2nd core principle – do 2 burpees
3rd core principle – do 3 burpees
4th core principle – do 4 burpees
5th core principle – do 5 burpees
Mosey lap around the parking lot to set the “route”
IST, SSH, strawberry pickers, jack reachers – all x 10, all IC
Set timer for 15 minutes.
At the start, perform 1 burpee, then run lap (see above).
then 2 burpees, run lap
continue this pattern until 15 minutes are done.
All pax finished at least 6 laps, most with higher results.
Mosey lap setting a slightly shorter lap route.
To covered area, and grab some bench
20 Step ups
Then run lap
Repeato until time is called (about 20 minutes)
