Battle flu is real. YHC felt a little under the weather Friday night and Saturday morning. After posting at Battle, YHC spent the rest of the day trying to figure out whether YHC was sick or just suffering from Battle Flu. General aches, pains, and exhaustion – classic symptoms of Battle Flu. YHC is happy to report that at the time of reporting, all Battle Flu symptoms have subsided and the memory, mostly awful, of Saturday morning is starting to fade.
Here’s what happened:
Mosey to football field, line up on goal line. Run to opposite goal line, perform 10 double-merkin burpees, run back to goal line and perform 1 jump squat. Run to opposite 10-yard line, perform 9 double-merkin burpees, run back to goal line and perform 2 jump squats. You can see where this is going. The pax ran to each 10-yard interval for the entire field, decreasing burpees by one, and increasing jump squats by one.
Next, YHC had set up two 20-yard squares in the middle of the field. Starting at one corner, the pax ran backwards to the first cone, shuffled to the next cone touching the ground with each shuffle, karaoke to the next cone, and sprint to the final cone. Four reps.
At this, YHC handed over the reins to Hawg for a block party as follows in the parking lane on the far side of the football field:
The plan was for 10 reps of each of the following for 10 rounds with a cinder block:
1) overhead press
2) leg press
5) mountain climbers (for recovery lol)
6) bench press
7) throwouts (kettle bell throw)
9) Russian twists
10) Bobsled. This consisted of pushing a cinder block, along the asphalt, for approximately 30 yards.
Remember that the pax are your friends, your brothers, and are always there to support you. Don’t be afraid to share. Everybody has issues, troubles, up and downs. The pax will not let you down.
