10 Men came to Battle for a ferocious #BeatDown from Chaser and YHC. We did some serious hill work and then a brutal Chelsea to finish off the hour of pain. Hawg, a former FNG at Battle brought his own FNG to the party. Welcome JoeLee.
Conditions: high 70’s with low humidity, for a change
Fast Mosey from the flag in the Flora parking lot up Falcon Drive. Stop in driveway across from bank for 50 Russian Twists (count on one side) and 5 Worst Merkins Ever (1 wide arm, 1 regular, 1 diamond = 1 WME). Welcome and Disclaimer by Pondo.
Turn right onto Forest Drive and quick left onto Edgehill and Fast Mosey to Cherry Laurel. Stop at Oak Ridge to explain the U-shaped route: run down Cherry Laurel, sprint up Cherry Laurel, stop at Oak Ridge for 50 Russian Twists & 5 WME’s (as above), run to other end of Oak Ridge and down Plumer and sprint up Plumer. 50 Russian Twists and 5 WME’s at the top of Plumer, run back to Cherry Laurel and do it again and again. AMRAP 10 minutes. Hold 6 inches for the 6 at the top of Plumer. Run down Plumer and take a left onto Spring Hill and sprint up Spring Hill (Spring Mountain) for a final, super nasty ascent. Fast Mosey to Battle Loop. YHC was inspired by Flamer for this hill workout.
Chaser lead the pax through a Chelsea workout: 5 pull ups, 10 merkins, 15 low squats every minute on the minute. Chaser worked the pax right up to the last minute and then we did a fast mosey back to the parking lot.
