Intro: While planning a recent BC, YHC noticed that all of his workouts follow the same basic formula: one or more of 12 routines, coupons vs. no coupons, partner vs. no partner, and running vs. no running. Using a decision-making app, YHC created roulette wheels for each category. The BC would be left to chance and formulated on the spot.
Chance chose a Mule Train workout with no coupons, 3-man teams, and no running. Out of a possible 144 combinations, a mule train without coupons would really test YHC’s creativity.
Warmup: Jog around the tennis court x2 (to give YHC an extra 2 minutes to pull a BC out of his behind).
Thang: The PAX formed-up in a platoon on the field. With all PAX planking, the team at the back of the platoon would bear crawl to the front of the platoon. Continue until the first team was again at the back. Then bear merkins. Then burpee broad jumps. Then bear carolina dry docks. Then bear merkins. Then squat-jumps. Then burpee broad jumps until the platoon returned to the starting point.
The PAX then did RR tracks across the field as a platoon (about 120 yards). Then RR tracks back in a single column. Then RR tracks back across the field by teams. Somewhat gassed, the PAX were given a 10 count, which took more like 20 seconds, so each PAX did 15 merkins.
The PAX then formed a single column, where they took turns carrying each other, while zigzagging thru the column across the field in Mule Train fashion.
Mary: In rapid succession – WW1 situps x20, Heels to Heaven x20, Pickle Pounders x15, L side plank pickle pounders x15, R side plank pickle pounders x15, alternating heel touches x20

Devo: I recently heard a great analogy regarding juggling multiple priorities. At any given time, you are juggling tennis balls and eggs. The secret is to protect the eggs and let the tennis balls bounce harmlessly away until later.
