  • The PAX: Left Turn, Bada Boom, Valdez,

YHC was greeted by a small but fierce team ready to attack the workout with enthusiasm in the humidity of HardNocs.  The message was based on Jumanji’s lead in the F3 Newsletter –  “We Don’t Quit in the Face of Obstacles” or in other words “We DFQ!” 

The Warmup:

  • SSH 15X in cadence
  • Arm circles back & forward 10X in cadence
  • Michael Phelps 10X
  • Toy Soldiers 10X in cadence
  • Hillbillies 10X in cadence
  • Down Dog into runner’s stretch to Cobra into Plank 30 seconds to Bear Crawl to curb and bear crawl back
  • Run lap up and down the stairs, 5 Burpees OYO

The Thang:

  • Tabata Circuit: (45 seconds max reps, 30 seconds rest/jog in place, PAX rotate to next exercise).    We played a Van Halen playlist to honor the recent passing of guitar aficionado Eddie Van Halen (RIP) as they were a big part of  YHC’s teen years!
