CAT renames 12 Squares

With Christmas behind us, it was time to re-gift the “Christmas of Days 12” routine.  YHC had the Q at CAT today and wanted to re-use the weinke we did a few weeks ago at The Hollow.  Its a good routine that can be taken to different AOs – but it needed a different name.  So it was renamed today to “12 Squares”.  Not for physical squares, but for the square numbers (12×12, 11×11, etc.).

  • 1 second warning (we got a headstart since it was cold), no FNGs, disclaimer, quick prayer

Take a step back to enlarge the circle and warmup with…

  • 12x SSHs IC
  • 12x IWs IC
  • 12x Airquats IC

Go grab a block and meet at the planter box behind home base.  YHC turned on some 80s tunes.  Since the portable speaker batteries were dead, the phone had to do.

  • 12 Squares (descending ladder as below)
    • Round 12 we did… 12
    • Round 11 we did… 12, 11
    • Round 1 we did… 12,  11, … , 1
