Hey everyone here are some quick reminders:
Fall party at Holly's this Friday and we will be saying good bye to the Thompson family who is moving away to West Virginia. You can find Holly's address on the WOD board at the gym. BYOB and chairs. Bring a side dish for the meal or wood for the fire. She is hoping to have the ribs ready by 5 - 6 pm.
The following Saturday is Pukey's. This partner competition is primarily in house, but we are allowing people to partner up with friends and family from outside of the gym. We are getting some late arrivals, so if you are kicking around the idea of signing up, the sheet is in the bathroom. The entrance fee is $20 per person to cover t-shirts. Come up with a team name or I will come up with one for you. Tentative names listed in picture above.
We will have a heat list early next week. The first workout will be at 8:30 am. Since there is a large turnout, with most of the trainers competing, we will need volunteers from each heat to help count reps for the other heats. Expect 4 or 5 teams per heat.
For the workouts listed below, boys and girls are considered to be under the age of 16 years.
Workout #1: 750 jump rope singles. You can only jump rope while your partner is hanging off of the pull up bar. Switch positions as you see fit. Get your jump rope figured out before the day of the competition!
Workout #2: 15 min AMRAP:
50 burpee buy in (only one person doing burpees at a time)
Once the buy in is completed you can fill in the open position of your choice with stations changing every minute on the minute. (Only one person working out at a time, this will give you time to set up the bike or rower up in your time off)
