Sweat Street

Posted on Posted in Backblasts

4 Pax joined the gloom looking for some direction after a great convergence on Saturday.  There were some grumbling of soreness but, well you know, TOXIC.

Conditions: B…E…A…Utiful!

Warm Up All ICx10


Don Quixote


Leg Pendulum L/R

Karaoke down and back the “street”

The Thang (modified from a F3 Tally Beatdown)

Part I: Speed Lane

For 5 straight minutes, to really get the legs warmed up, a “launch lane” was established that was approximately 30 m.
Each PAX moves through the lane where you do a “fast run,” which is a speed that is in between your jogging and sprinting pace.
Mosey (jog) back to the starting line and repeat as many times as possible until 5 minutes is complete.
The key here is to keep moving and do not stop or walk.
Part II: EMOM Sweat Street

For each of the rounds, you perform the exercise, fast run about 30 m within the cones, and then mosey back to the start.
EMOM = every minute on the minute
I used my WOD timer. It counted down every minute. But that was just a teaser as we kept going the full duration.  Crowd pleaser.
Round 1 – 5 burpees and fast run x 5 minutes
Round 2 – 10 pushups and run backwards x 5 minutes
Round 3 – 15 air squats and fast run x 5 minutes
Round 4 – 5 V-ups and run backwards x 5 minutes
Round 5 – 5 jump squats and fast run x 5 minutes
Round 6 – 5 burpees and fast run x 3 minutes


2 rounds of 100’s  While sitting in the boat position (think American Hammer/Russian Twist) tapping the ground 10 times and on the tens, the PAX yells 10, 20, 30….until 100.


Prayers for Ellie, Finals week, and safe travels for Toxic.
