11’s in the House of Pain

  • When: 10/04/2018
  • Q: Dory
  • Pax: Zia, Guardian, Runner Girl, Chowda

So nice to be back to some sense of normal- kids starting back to school today, regular workouts for the week, nice sore muscles from @pickleback yesterday- great start to our Thursday!!

Warm up:

Toy soliders x 10 IC

Windmills x 10 IC

We moseyed to the House of Pain- great place to start our theme of 11’s!!

Our first set was all together to get our heart rates up.  Burpees and Hello Dollys! A total of 55 burpees will get you moving for sure!!!   Once complete, it was a wall sit until the group was done.

We then split up into groups and used the sidewalks from the house of pain to do sets.  We each got to do 2 sets of exercises before we ran out of time.

The exercises were:

  • Step ups (L/R=1) or box jumps with good mornings- nice box jumps @zia!! 
  • Jump squats and tricep dips
  • Calf raise squats and incline or decline push ups
  • One leg lunges using the benches (L/R=1) and shoulder crosses

We then held a plank while doing our COT- just to be sure we were really good, then a nice little mosey back to the parking lot.

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop. Confucius
