VERY COLD! 13 degrees with a strong windchill! Felt like Zero according to Steve!
Stretcharama – SSH with some Burpees added in for extra warmth! Also knocked out a few windmills.
Slowzee to the parking lot where we performed some stacking cardio moved on parking lines. These included, sprints, side sprints, karaoke, froggers, and a half way near crawl.
Switched things up and took a trip around the lake. We jogged while knocking out sons cherry pickers and overhead claps (I was channeling my inner Crocket) tossed in a few sets of burpees along the way.
Made it back to the lot and continued our previous routine, this time in teams of two. After we headed to the hill and preformed 3 sets of hill sprints. Peppered in some SSH.
Jog back to the flag where we bottomed things up.
Quick TAP. Photo – it was revealed to us by Steamer that the tree standing near our start point makes a great phone stand for pictures….. Namearama!
Pax: Floater, Doogie, Packer, Ditka, Tex, Wiggles, Kiddie Pool
Pax warmed up with the following: SSH x 20 IC, Mountain Climbers x 15 IC, High Knees x 10 IC, SSH x 10 IC
It’s two days away from Christmas and what screams Christmas more than Die Hard? Thus, we did a Die Hard themed workout. One PAX was named Hans Gruber (Ditka) and one was named John McClane (Tex). The remainder of the PAX were with Hans, who was holding them hostage. The goal of McClane was to safely recover the hostage PAX. Each round was the battle between McClane and Gruber/hostages which featured 20 reps of the following exercises in cadence: block squats, block presses, block swings, man makers (10 reps of these). At the end of these exercises, McClane (Tex) and Gruber (Ditka) were timed for 1 minute to see who can do the most reps of one of the exercises in the round. (Round 1: merkins, round 2: squats, round 3: SSH) Hostage PAX also perform exercise for extra work. In the end, McClane (Tex) recovered all the hostages and saved Christmas. Nakatomi Plaza had 35 floors, so we did 35 burpees to cap off the workout.
