…but it’s not basketball season!?!

(Note: The picture above was selected before last Thursday’s game. Now it is to remind Carolina fans of happier times.)

It’s a good thing that YHC double-checked the start time, getting there 30 minutes late would have been embarrassing, especially since it was a Depot and Speedtrap mini-convergence. The warning went out on twitter for the pax to bring their running shoes and be prepared to plank. The pax were promised a cardio and strength workout, so after a shaky disclaimer and a prayer, the pax got hard to work.

Conditions: 73 degrees and slightly humid at 89% (read: it was muggy)



10 IW for Walker IC
10 through the tunnel IC
10 squats IC

1st. corner 15 Spider-Man planks (YHC gave a demonstration)
2nd corner 15 right side plank crunch (YHC gave a demonstration)
3rd corner 15 left side plank crunch
4th corner 15 mountain climbers

YOY rinse and repeat 5 times

The plank crunches were a crowd-pleaser but there were comments about them being very close to a dance move.



(for those who want to remember the 1980’s though somehow the song doesn’t make the workout any easier) Jacob’s Ladder – Huey Lewis and the News

3 smurf jacks (YHC demonstrated and reminded the pax of Stagecoach’s requirement of not more that 2 apples high)
run up the hill
3 burpees

Rinse and repeat 7 times adding 1 smurf jack and burpee each time

– Regular workout schedule across the AO’s next week.

– There are a lot of opportunities for #CSAUP in the coming months with Mud Run, Governor’s Cup, Go Ruck, and Palmetto 200. Look for the pre-blasts or ask someone if you are interested.

– Keep Walker, Karie and Andy in your prayers. Several guys wore their Walker Strong t-shirts and took a picture after the workout.
