Absolute Zero

Absolute Zero

Workout Date:





Kitten, Sunshine, Crank Bait, Beeker, Viagra

The Thang:

Absolute zero was not only how cold it felt. That’s about how many PAX I expected to see waiting at the Village when I reached the parking lot. As it turns out, five PAX showed up on this frigid, dark, 21-degree morning. 1-minute warning and disclaimer were given, followed by this COP:

20 ssh ic

20 arm circles (forward and reverse) ic

20 ttt ic

20 windmills ic

10 hand-release merkins oyo

The Thang:

Since this workout took place on the 12th and final day of Christmas, it made too much sense to do the 12 days of Christmas. So, borrowing from Handy Manny, we did the following (which the QIC had so graciously written out with sidewalk chalk for everyone to follow along with):

  1. Run one lap
  2. American hammers
  3. Star jumps
  4. Burpee broad jump
  5. Lunges
  6. Big Boys
  7. Plank Jacks
  8. Burpees
  9. ssh
  10. Jump squats
  11. Merkins
  12. Mountain climbers

To help keep everyone going at roughly the same pace, we did burpees while waiting on the six in between each day of Christmas.

Following the 12 days, we circled up for 4 minutes of tabata flutter kicks (It wouldn’t be a Kitten workout without tabata, right?). There was just enough time after that for one final round of tabata. But, since it was still (barely) Christmas, I decided to be kind and give the PAX a choice between tabata merkins, tabata mountain climbers, or Jack Webbs. They chose Jack Webbs. After completing those, time was called.

Announcements: Jan. 6 2-year anniversary convergence.

Prayers: Safe travel for Beeker’s wife and daughter as well as everyone else¬†out on the icy roads. Praises for completed renovations at Sunshine’s office. Huge praise for five guys showing up in 21 degrees to work out together! It goes to show how much we can do when we hold each other accountable and encourage one another. Great work. If you weren’t there, we missed you and look forward to seeing you out there next time!
