# of PAX: 4

PAX: See Video…. Only kidding – Hoveround, Crockett, Napa, Kix

Warm-o-Rama

Start in high-plank position as we discuss love for collegiate sports and sports history. As @Crockett has been the fearless leader of Arrowhead over this first year, I felt it was fitting to pay tribute to the Miami Hurricanes as they head into Death Valley to face the #1 ranked Clemson Tigers this weekend. I decided to look up some historic facts of Hurricane’s football to implement into the workout.

To finish the warm-up…

Mountain Climbers x 10 IC
Hold position and switch to Merkins
Merkins x 10 IC
Back to Mountain Climbers x 10 IC
Back to Merkins x 10 IC

Finkles x 15 IC
Pebble Pickers x 10 IC

The THANG:
Mosey to Basketball Court – From 1983 to 2001, the Canes claimed 5 National Championships with 6 unclaimed, for a total of 11, so….
Eleven’s it is!
10 Merkins
1 Big Boi Sit-up
9, 2
8, 3
7, 4 and so on, until you finish with 1 Merkin and 10 BBS

At finish, mosey to Gaga Ball court – Current rank of the Hurricanes is #8

8 x Incline Merkins

8 x Side Kicks on each side to top of the wall of Gaga Court
8 x burpee with hope overs (Complete a burpee, but rather than jump, jump over the wall to into the court, then complete next burpee, jumping back over the wall until 8 reps are completed)

Mosey up the parking lot and over to baseball field

The Hurricanes have had 2 Heisman Trophy winners, Vinny Testaverde and Gino Torretta. The QB’s wore numbers 14 and 13…. let’s make our way around the field using those numbers as our Rep Count

Run to 1st Base – 13 x Up, Down’s… Run in place until YHC shouts “Down” then push back up and start running in place again

Head to 2nd Base – 14 x Copperhead Squats

Run to 3rd Base – 13 x Bobby Hurley’s

Lunge Walk to Home Plate

That completed our trip around for Leg work, now time to hit the Core. For fun, we decided to round the bases backward, while running backward. (The PAX even thought they would be funny and count all of the Cadences backward from 13/14 down to 1)

3rd Base – 13 x Box Cutters

2nd Base – 14 x American Hammers

1st Base – 13 x Heels to Heaven

Home Plate – 14 x Hello Dolly

After our two rounds, head to the Tennis Courts. We partnered up for some quick Dora.

Exercises

100 x Carolina Dry Docks

100 x Sumo Squats (Single Count)

100 x LBC’s

Part 1 starts exercise, Partner 2 runs to other side of Tennis court and performs 3 Donkey Kicks against the fence, then back to relieve partner, keeping a running count until all exercises are complete.

We had just a little time left for a “Cool Down” – Mosey back to the Basketball Court

From end-line, Bear Crawl to other end-line, then crab walk back to the start. Then mosey back to AO

I am not sure if you get much better mumblechatter than that of Hoveround. There was plenty of banter, joking and good fun to be had. Thanks for making your first trip out to Arrowhead!

COT:

Prayers for Frankie (Sooner’s Father-in-Law), Prayers for Closer and his family. Continue to give to Eden Village as you are able, provide toward the Silent Auction, and watch out for more details on Slack. Poker Run starts Monday! Get out there for your chance to earn the coveted championship belt.

As always, it is an honor to be able to lead.
