The Amazing Race Beatdown

Weather:  72 degrees and foggy

Good turn-out this morning.  No FNG’s.  The pax was fired up to see why this beatdown was called The Amazing Race.

Pax started with a mosey of two laps around the parking lot.  Mixed in were butt kickers, high knees, nur and carioca x2.  Then, the pax moved to the hockey rink.

Warm-up

  1. SSH x20 IC
  2. Strawberry pickers x15 IC
  3. Abe Vigoda x12 IC
  4. Moroccan Night Clubs x20 IC
  5. Alabama Ass-kickers x10 each leg IC
  6. Side Plank x2 each arm

The Thang

Bear Crawl 1-2-3.  First, the pax partnered up and lined up on one side of the hockey rink.  One partner executed a bear crawl to the other side and then did a crab walk back.  The other partner performed exercises in place.  On completion of bear crawl / crab walk, the partners switched roles.  Exercises were 100 merkins, 200 LBC, 300 squats.

The Amazing Race.  The majority of the Thang was spent in The Amazing Race.  Pax formed 6 teams of two and given a map.  The Race consisted of 8 exercise stations spread out across Adventure Park.  Each station was marked with a cone and had a list of exercises to perform.  Generally, the stations consisted of two exercises with 20 reps each, repeated 3 times.  Of course, one station had Burpees x10 for 3 repeats.  Upon completion of the exercises, the team could claim one token from a bowl at the station (a poker chip).  Both team members had to complete all exercises.  Team had to travel together.

Each token counted as one point.  If a team completed all 8 stations, they received 4 extra points.  Teams could not repeat the same station twice in a row.  However, teams could choose to not complete all 8 stations and forgo the extra points.  Teams had to return to the hockey rink by 7:55am.  Late arriving teams were docked a point.

And the winning team was:  Drake and Pincher!   These animals completed all 8 stations and arrived back at the hockey rink with a couple minutes to spare, earning 12 points.  They were rewarded with several high calorie candy bars.
