Station switcheroo take 2

  • When: 12/27/2017
  • Q: Chowda
  • Pax: Pickleback, Ocra, Caddy, Scarlett, Sprint, Shaka, Waves, Lanikai, Aloha

10 PAX gathered on a drizzly December evening to spread out and use multiple areas of the Battlefield in a station switcheroo. Here’s what went down:

The Thang:

There were 3 Groups spread out around Battlefield, each containing 3 Stations. PAX chose which Group to start, then chose a station. Complete the exercise at the station for 2 minutes, then rotate to the next station. Rise and repeat until you get through all three stations in your group. Then, rotate to the next Group. Group 1 rotated to Group 2, Group 2 to 3, 3 to 1. We made it through all the groups twice.

Group 1:

  • Station 1 – Curtsy Lunges
  • Station 2 – Plank Toe Taps
  • Station 3 – Zombie Walk (Holding a 10 pd kettlebell or dumbbell in your palms, arms straight out in front of your body, walk from cone to cone)

Group 2:

  • Station 1 – Run the loop
  • Station 2 – Calf Raises on the parking bumps
  • Station 3 – Grasshoppers

Group 3:

  • Station 1 -Sprint down the sidewalk and mosey back or shuffle through the orange poles
  • Station 2 – Overhead press with rocks
  • Station 3 – Plank

We did not have time for Mary, but I had planned for this (wanted to get through each Group twice), so I incorporated an ab into each Group. Since it had rained all day, it was quite soggy, so we chose to do plank style ab moves.

We had a FiA first! 2.0 Sprint lost a tooth during her workout. How (and where!) did you store that tooth and continue exercising without missing a beat, Caddy?

We all stayed in one group this time, splitting up between the stations. It worked well and we didn’t feel lonely.

Shaka and Caddy’s crew – thank you for always showing up with a smile on your face and for being such kind, respectful individuals.

Ocra and Pickleback – thanks for keeping me on my toes and for the laughs.

As always, thank you for supporting me and allowing me to lead.



PS I’m feeling every single one of those exercises today…2 minutes doesn’t seem so long on paper.
