Ascending B.L.I.M.P.S. 2020.01.30
Last workout of January 2020. I posted this to SLACK yesterday and two guys posted their first workout of 2020; Snowball and Brick Cake. 7 total PAX joined me in the early, wet, gloom to get after it and start the day right.
I had an idea of spreading out the warm up by starting light, mosey a little, then add more reps and exercises. I liked it and by the time we got to The Thang, it started to feel like the workout.
- Huggers and light stretching as a few late comers pulled in. there was lots of mumblechatter
- SSH ic x20 then mosey out of parking lot….
- Stop at next school entrance; 20 SSH and then 10 Tappy Taps ic. Mosey onward…
- Stop at Marshes Edge entrance; 20 SSH, 10 Tappy Taps, Bat wings (10 ech – 4 position) mosey to Round about for the Thang
I have done a B.L.I.M.P.S. routine (with various reps for each letter exercise) here before so I modified it into an ascending BLIMPS.
B – 5 Burpee
L – 10 Lunges ech leg
I – 15 Imperial Walkers
M – 20 Merkins
P – 25 Plankjacks
S – 30 Squats
Here’s how it worked.
B – 5 Burpee then mosey around traffic circle
B.L. – 5 burpee, 10 Lunges then mosey around circle
B.L.I -5 burpee, 10 Lunges, 15 Imperial walkers then mosey
B.L.I.M. – 5, burpee, 10 lunges, 15 IW, 20 Merkins then mosey around
B.L.I.M.P. – 5 burpee, 10 lunges, 15 IW, 20 merkins, 25 Plankjacks then mosey
B.L.I.M.P.S. – 5 burpee, 10 Lunges, 15 IW, 20 merkins, 25 pj, 30 Squats then mosey
BONUS: I don’t think anyone wanted the bonus….
Repeat B.L.I.M.P.S. but with a Bear Craw around the traffic circle. That SUCKED!
** Mosey back toward flags, stopping for a few cool down exercises**
Stop 1 (Marshes edge entrance) 25 Monkey Humpers in cadence. I tried to stop at 20 but Snowball would not let me…This too also SUCKED.
Stop 2 (first entrance to school) 15 or 20 Flutter-Rosalita’s Almost died and this too also SUCKED!
**Mosey back to flags for COT – I was spent!!!**
7 PAX got out of bed on a chilly morning. Entered the Gloom to better themselves: CowTipper, Brick Cake, Blackberry, Lab Rat, Yogi, Snowball, Siri
