Pax brought weights, mats, and Q supplied the chalk. What for, you ask? You’ll see.

Warm Up was a round of stretches: good mornings, hamstring scoops, arm circles, phelps, chest stretch

Time for Thang 1 – Q explains the AMRAP concept and reviews the exercises; bit of mumble chatter about remembering all of the exercises and questions about how to tally, but we got there! This is around the time Hootie started trying to figure out what movie “Mr. Blue Sky” by The Electric Light Orchestra is from.

1 round = 10 reps dumbbell swings, 10 reps bent over rows, 10 reps goblet squat, 10 push ups, 30 jumping jacks

Each pax kept their own tally of rounds with the chalk supplied by Q. We did this for 13 minutes.

BURPEE BANK SURPRISE – no one knew it, but their tally was actually their burpee bank for…

Thang 2 – walking or moseying around the track and stopping at 4 locations (skate park, stairs, scoreboard, parking lot) to complete however many burpees were in your bank
A bit of mumble chatter about how we should have rounded down our rounds instead of rounding up

Met back at the parking lot after a couple of laps for Mary

Mary – 45 seconds on, 15 seconds rest of:
Bicycle crunches, leg raises, american hammers, heel taps, LBCs, plank

We had time for a 2-minute cooldown, timed to Kasey Musgrave’s “Rainbow”. This is around the time Hootie figured out “Mr. Blue Sky” is featured in The Game Plan.

COT – “It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” – Claude Bristol, American Journalist
Q handed out singular affirmations to each Pax to say and repeat throughout the day.
