9 PAX joined YHC in the Virtual gloom with a beautiful moon in the sky to guide us!   YHC discussed with the PAX that one of the ways we can combat  COVID19 is by keeping our bodies in shape and we went immediately to 11 Burpees OYO followed by a 25 yard run and back.   Next we launched into rounds of 11’s with a 25 yard run between 10 reps on one side 1 rep on the other (always add to 11)

Round 1 – Diamond Merkins & Air Jordan’s (10 runs)

11 Burpees OYO – run 25 yards and back

Round 2 – Hand Release Merkins & Prisoner Squats (10 runs)

11 Burpees OYO– run 25 yards and back

Round 3 – Carolina Dry Docks & Iron Mike’s (each leg) (10 runs)

11 Burpees OYO– run 25 yards and back
