10 PAX tried to climb the pyramid of pain. First we did some warm ups with toy soldiers, windmills and arm circles.

The thing

5 rows of exercises that increased in reps but decreased in number of exercises. Take a lap after each exercise or do all the exercises on that row, then take that many laps (great for those who want to do a longer run at one time instead of a bunch of little runs).

First (bottom) row: 10 reps each of burpees, bgs, bear squats, around the world and shoulder taps (sets)

Second row: 20 reps each of merkins, angry donkey kicks, leg lifts, and gun show (sets)

Third row: 30 reps each of OHP, crunchy front, and curtsy lunges (sets)

Forth row: 40 reps of bicep curls and tricep extensions

Fifth row (top) 50 reps reps f squat jumps

There would have been a total of 15 laps!

We all made it to the top just in time to stretch!

We welcomed our new FNG Snorkel, did COT and name-o-rama

What a beautiful day too!
