Kenwood’s 5 Year Anniversary Q

YHC’s 5 year anniversary is on Saturday but was celebrated today.  For the first four anniversaries I did a Spartan themed workout.  This time I opted for a regular workout to help with the whole social distancing and no coupon sharing incentive.  So I put together a few throwbacks from prior workouts, keeping the number 5 (or multiples of 5) in mind.

4 for StrideLite

Weather – super muggy

5 minute warning, 1 minute warning, intro disclaimer, prayer

Mosey to the block pile, grab one, continue on to the band field to warm- up with…

Next we played Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader, going through a star shaped course 5 times.  Each “lap” was a grade (1-5). Each of the 5 points of the star was a subject.  Right answers got you an exercise and reps.  Wrong answers got you extra reps.
