The Adventures of the Mumblechatter-less Workout

Pothole presents: The Adventures of the Mumblechatter-less Workout.

16 PAX rolled onto the set this morning, scripts in hand, ready to follow the director, YHC.  The plot was simple, warm-up, PT Test, and then finish off with a nice relaxing workout as a time filler and then head back to the dressing rooms.  Being the ever creative director, YHC had some changes to the script.  In the end, it ended up being completely without dialogue from the PAX.  Either everyone forgot their lines, or breathing was at a precious premium.

FADE IN:
The set conditions were prime: cool, dark, wet ground.

ACT 1: THE THANG
YHC strolls in dramatically one minute late.  As with all grand directors, this is nothing new.  Don’t judge.
The PAX reluctantly circle up.  What kind of a creative mood is he in today?  Why are we running already?

MOVE TO:

THE UPPER SOCCER FIELD – MORNING
Whew.  It’s only the COP.
Windmill X 10 IC

Imperial Walkers X 15 IC

ACT II: THE PT TEST
YHC felt the need to demonstrate proper push-up and sit-up form as a friendly reminder.  No jack-rabbit pushups and no 30 degree angle sit-ups.  You’re only cheating yourself.
