Allow YHC to set the scene; summer in South Carolina is officially among us, it’s the day after a holiday, school is almost out, and the list goes on and on. Aside from the outside noise and distractions is man’s inner desire to sweat, put in work, start his day off right, and leave better than he showed up. It’s why we do this thing. This morning, the men of CAT showed up ready to put in the sweat equity to a better life. YHC had been drawing up a workout that checked all of the boxes; strength training, interval training, and some distance running. Here’s the tom foolery that went down:
***Conditions: 69 degrees with a slight breeze
***Disclaimer and Prayer
***Mosey to high jump area at track
- COP today was not the standard SSH, TTT, etc. Today it was about stretching. The workout I had lined up include strength work, interval training, and a little distance running. Stretching seemed to be in order and was well received by the pax.
There were 6 stations set up with a card and a light. Perform the exercise on the card. When you return, sprint to the opposite sideline and back, finish up with 5 merkins, 5 burpees, and 5 squats.
