12 PAX, including 2 FNGs, were in attendance when YHC called for the COP at 0530. Then 1 more arrived. Then 1 more arrived. Then 1 more arrived. 15 PAX is a new record for Pooler without counting 2.0’s or convergences. Great job all!
30 SSH IC, 15 Moroccan Night Clubs IC, 10 Chinooks each way IC, 15 burpees as a late penalty/celebration of the new record.
Mosey to the coupons where a shiny new 2” diameter 50’ long rope was present. Thread a cinder block per person onto the battle rope, and then as a group carry the rope on shoulders. This was slower than YHC expected, so we only went a few light poles away for the main part of the beatdown. Use the light pole as an anchor for the rope. Make an arc around the other side of the light pole with the cinder blocks.
The Battle Rope station would AMRAP the rope exercise to act as the timer while the others did a matched exercise in the arc. Rotate clockwise. The following exercises were cycled through:
|Battle Rope Exercise||Non-rope Exercise|
|Infinity/Figure 8 Slams||Kettle Bell Swings|
|Alternating Waves||Cinder block curls|
|3 forward slam jumps, shuffle back||Long jump, shuffle back|
|Alternating Waves to Burpees||Burpees|
|Side Shuffle while doing Waves||Cinder Block Squats|
|SSH with rope||SSH|
YHC left the Weinke in his vehicle, so accidentally left American Hammers with the rope off the routine.
We cycled through almost 3 times. Laced up the cinder blocks on the rope and carried them back as a team. Hustle back to the flag to name the FNGs.
Welcome Stripes and Armrest. And welcome back Piglet and Quikrete who both were FNGs Monday and posted for the 2nd time.
Announcements, Pledge, Prayer
Now that the battle rope is officially part of our coupon arsenal, we need to work on naming the exercises. Someone more creative than YHC should take that on.
