YHC and Chaser were charged with the Q at this week’s version of Battle. YHC got things started off, with Chaser coming out of the bullpen for the second half and some fun on the football field. Things got a little chippy when Okra had some complaints about Chaser’s clock running a little slow. According to Chaser, “when he’s whining, he’s hurting.” In typical Battle fashion, all 10 pax were hurting when it was all said and done.
The Weather: overcast and humid

Second Half – Chaser
The pax were already a little nervous when they realized Chaser had done some staging on the football field and his equipment could be seen at various locations around the football field.
6 stations were set up – everybody grabs a partner. Partner 1 does exercise all out for 60 seconds, while partner 2 recovers. Flapjack. After each station, all pax run to midfield for 5 burpees before heading to next station.
Station 1: jump rope
Station 2: carry heavy ass medicine ball as far as you can in the end zone – thing must’ve weighted 80 lbs
Station 3: Kettle Bell swings
Station 4: Squat, pick up heavy bag, lift to shoulder, bring bacK down, do opposite shoulder
Station 5: PT style, old school situps (with partner holding legs)
Station 6: squat thrust with medicine ball, throw to goal post, catch off of rebound, repeat
Gather equipment, run back to COT, plank sequence led by Chaser.
- hats off to all who posted, work was done
- props to Chaser for a very creative and merciless second half – takes some extra effort to bring the equipment / plan it out – but workouts like this help us push ourselves / others and keep things fresh
- COT led by Adrian
