The set-up was simple: In 3-person teams, complete the above exercise & rep scheme for time. The work-to-rest ratio was 1-2; Partner 1 performed 15 rep Back Squats, 30 cal row, & 15 rep burpees, and then rested while Partners 2 & 3 did the same. Then Partner 1 performed 12-24-12 of the same exercises, and rested while 2 & 3 did the same, and so-on and so-on until the workout was done. Squats were to be done at ~50% of your 1rep max.
You always know when CFDC is doing squats – calls of “a little lower” seem to echo off the gym walls. So how do you know when you’re low enough? Using a medicine ball can be a good depth gauge, and a good spotter can always be a great help. Of course, there’s always the shorts-shredding method:
Great work by all. Be sure to rest up and stretch out those legs! In the meantime, post squat weights and total time to comments, and while you’re at it, feel free to weigh in on which exercise proved to be the worst.
This coming Sunday’s classes (both 9am Elements and the 10am regular class) will be held outside! Sunday looks to nice day – current forecast is for sunny skies & mid-60’s. More than likely, Elements will be held at Mitchell Park (neighboring the gym) and the 10am class will be at Rock Creek – regardless, we will meet at Balance before heading over to either location.
