It’s that time of year where football, baseball, and basketball are all being played. It’s a heck of a time to be alive. To celebrate, we did a SPORTS-themed workout.
We started on the basketball court and worked on our fundamentals:
Jump Shooting: 100 Bobby Hurleys
Defense: We did a slide drill. With our butts down, heads up, and arms extended, we shuffled side-to-side across the court touching each line before returning back to the side-out line. Basically a sideways suicide.
Rebounding: 20 Side Straddle Blocks
We moved next door to the tennis court and worked on our serves:
5 Woodchoppers in each direction
Carry block to other service line.
4 Woodchoppers in each direction
Carry block to other service line
On to the baseball field to work on our base running. The plan was for us all to hit a Cycle (single, double, triple, and home run), but we came up a little short because of time constraints.
Bear crawl to first base. 1 Burpee. Crawl bear back home.
Bear crawl to second base. 2 Burpees. Crawl bear back home.
Bear crawl to third base. 3 Burpee. Crawl bear back bome.
Bear crawl all the way around the bases. 4 Burpees. Bear crawl back around the bases.
We went to the football field, aka the parking lot, to work on our lead blocking:
Overhead walking lunge 10 yards – 10 Thrusters – Carry block back to start
Overheard walking lunge 20 yards – 10 Thrusters – Carry block back to start
Overhead walking lunge 30 yards – 10 Thrusters – Carry block back to start
Overhead walking lunge 40 yards – 10 Thrusters – Carry block back to start
With about 2 minutes left, I remember that I had failed to honor the late, great, Kobe Bean Bryant. So we dropped our blocks for a quick 81 Bobby Hurleys (or as many as possible) until the clock struck 6:00.
The Standard is the Standard.
And things of that nature.
Who knew that Shake N Bake was a prophet? When I said that this is the time of year that we have all the major sports playing, Shake N Bake proclaimed that baseball would be lasting exactly 1 more day. I turned on the news this morning to learn that baseball had ended. Well done Shake N Bake.
