Burpee-Free Beatdown, or Was It?

Burpee-Free Beatdown, or Was It?

Workout Date:





Judge Judy, 1st Base, Brown Bag, Crabs, O'Doules, Quaker (QIC)

The Thang:

AO: Catapult

Conditions: 70 degrees, dry, windless . . . perfect

Haven’t Q’ed at Catapult for far too long of a time, so I was more than happy when O’Doules reached out to me a few weeks ago to fill today’s spot. Catapult has definitely ‘evolved’ since its begin and has a strong group of regulars who continue to accelerate. They are constantly adding to their ranks and embody the ethos of “Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you found him”.

When the Catapult began if was a low impact, burpee-free, run-free zone, so YHC wanted to honor the tradition with my workout today. Read on to see what went down in the gloom.

COP: 20 Hairy Rockets IC; 20 TTT IC; 20 Windmills IC; 15 Merkins; 15 Imperial Walkers IC; 15 Tempo Squats IC; 20 SSH IC; 15 LBAC IC; 15 LBAC in reverse IC.

The “Burpee-free” Mile

Being that the Catapult is a “Burpee & Run Free Zone” (at least it use to be), YHC thought he would break up the the Burpee Mile into individual Jump Squats and Merkins with a causal mosey (#You’reWelcome). Although the exercises were OYO, we would stay together throughout the mosey for fellowship. This was the plan . . .

15 Jump Squats OYO+ 15 Merkins OYO + 1 full lap around the perimeter of the AO

Rinse and repeat 3 times for a total of 45 Jump Squats, 45 Merkins, & 1 mile.

After we finished the “Burpee-free Mile”  we did 5 Burpees for good measure then took a short mosey around the AO and end at the Coupon Pile.
