Ode to Basketball (USC 66, UGA 57)

I’ve been making excuses (mostly blaming P200 running) for reasons not to make it to Jumanji so when I saw that Thursday was open, I quickly claimed it with the AOQ.  It was made better when I saw late Wed night that visitors from F3 Columbia were coming!  Inspiration for the workout came while at the USC vs UGA basketball game Wednesday night.

Conditions: Clear and nice

The Thang:


Mosey around the parking lot (where I promised we’d travel less than a mile)

Windmill x 10 IC
Imperial Walkers X 10 IC
Squat X 10 IC
Merkin X 10 IC

Everyone grabs a block
PAX were split into 2 groups
Group 1 did overhead press with the block while Group 2 did squats
Group 1 did 4 side lunges while Group 2 did 4 lunges
Switch sides & that’s 1 set
9 reps X 9 sets = 81 total reps (for the 81 missed shots in the USC vs UGA game Wed night)

Next up:
Group 1 did block swings while Group 2 did merkins (incline, decline, up to the PAX)
Switch sides & that’s 1 set
6 x 6 = 36 total reps (for the 37 fouls in the basketball game, but 37 is prime)

Group 1 did chest press while Group 2 did iron crosses with the block
Switch sides & that’s 1 set
9 x 9 = 81 total reps (lots of BRICKS in the bball game & at Jumanji)

Return the blocks & mosey back to shovel flag
Left side plank 4 count, high plank 4 count, right side plank 4 count X 11
High plank 4 count, low plank 4 count X 11
22 total plank turnovers for the 22 turnovers in the basketball game
Apologies for the extra minute
