Inaugural Suicide Hill Halfpipe

Conditions: Finally, a cold morning-34 degrees.

The Thang:

8 Roost PAX started their week with a little concoction put together by YHC and Money Penny when we, apparently, had too much time on our hands.  In an effort to create a standard workout that would be specific to The Roost-similar to Columbia’s “The Bull” and Lexington’s “The Reaper,” the Suicide Hill Halfpipe was created (working title for now). Here’s how it went down

Run down to top of Suicide Hill for quick COP:

SSH x 20 IC

IW x 20 IC

TTT x 20 IC

Windmill x 20 IC

Explanation of Suicide Hill Halfpipe:

Start at the top of Suicide Hill closest to the softball field with 20 reps of OH block press…run to bottom of hill for 20 squats…run to opposite top for 20 merkins…return to middle for 20 LBC’s then back to top nearest softball field. Add 1 rep/exercise each lap…second lap would be 21 of each and so on…rinse & repeat until time is called. Easy enough, right??

Come out to The Roost the last Tuesday of each month to push yourself. This workout is all about “you vs you.” Push yourself by recording your “score” each month while pushing others to get better at the same time. A few PAX got 5.5 laps in-that’s 135 OH press, 135 squats, 110 merkins and right at 3 miles-a solid morning’s work. Most got in between 4-5 laps. I’m certain that these totals will only increase as these men continue to push each other to get better each month. Come join us-last Tueday workout of each month. On this date, we will park and launch from the lower practice football field parking lot so as to not waste any time.
