I continue to develop my points-based bootcamp, rewarding the men who earn the most points over the course of 45 minutes. Version 2.0 was unveiled on Nov. 16 at Bedrock, but first we took a tour of three of South Carolina’s worst waterfalls.
Conditions: 40s, clear. Nice.
SSH x 2 IC
Mtn Climbers x 20 IC
TTT x 10 IC
LBACs x 10 IC
Waterfall Merkin: Each PAX does five merkins, moving on the Q’s call. On the fifth merkin, hold the low plank position until failure. Butts flat, chest and knees off the ground. As the PAX fail, line up in the order of failure from first to last. Then five more merkins on Q call, holding low plank on the fifth. Once the first PAX in line fails, then man next to him can. Thus the waterfall.
Boat/Canoe waterfall: Same concept, but five boat/canoe movements, holding the canoe position on the fifth.
Squat waterfall: Same concept, but five squats, holding the down position on the fifth.
Now that the PAX are sufficiently warmed up we partnered up with someone of similar speed and ability for a Dora with blocks: 100 curls, 200 squats with blocks, 300 overhead press. Each time you swapped out with your partner you earned a point. So the strategy is, be fast. A more subtle strategy is to go more slowly in executing the 100/200/300, both for the sake of proper form and to allow more time for additional swaps.
Once the Dora is complete, return to the flag for 25 burpees, minus the number of points that you and your partner earned. So if you earned 12 points, then you’re on the hook for only 13 burpees.
