Intro: Magnitude is about teamwork, and lifting heavy shit. So YHC decided to make today a little awkward with some different types of movements.
Conditions: Low 40s, clear.
LBAC T claps x 20 IC forward
Shoulder taps x 20 IC
LBAC T claps x 20 IC backwards
Squats x 10 OC
World’s greatest stretch
We had an uneventful number this morning but luckily we have a log long enough for a three man carry. So we had KY, Prius, and Defib one on log, Stalker and YHC on the the other and rucked to the whiffle ball field.
First exercise was to bear crawl with hands on the log. (Surprisingly less shoulder intensive, but quads and triceps we’re screaming)
Once we got to the other side of the field, we started our full team movement and lined up all the rucks. All pax got down to bear crawl with dragging not only their ruck, but their teammates ruck as well. I gave the option to figure out how to make it happen, but ended with a teaching moment. Counted the group out in twos, 1,2,1,2,1. When 1 was called, 1s moved right hand, when 2s called 2s moved right hand. This movement keeps everyone together, but you also have to adjust to your teammates stride.
Once at the pitchers mound:
Flutter kicks x 20 IC with rucks up
WW1 sit ups x 20
Recovered and back to the baseline to work on another awkward team movement. The caterpillar/crawl.
Discussed it for a minute to plan it out. All PAX must get in to the plank position with their feet on the PAX shoulders behind them in the line. I wanted four bear crawl steps once we were all up and ready. First attempt we got two steps and decided to rearrange our order. Sometimes teamwork is being able to identify what went wrong and how to correct it.
Second attempt was a success.
Now to what I think was the hardest movement of the day.
Rucks on your front crab crawl with feet on your log to move it. (Not kicking it forward) By far the worst challenge of the day. Once to the pitchers mound we lunged walked the log back to the baseline.
At the baseline
Overhead log press x 20 OC
Return to the flag and stow the logs
Flutter kicks x 20 IC
Peter Parker’s x 20 IC
American Hammers x 10 IC
