Pax were instructed to find a square on the ground for Dot Drills. Basic idea is to jump from corner to corner performing an agility exercise similar to what is typically referred to as Dot Drills.

– Box x 15 (both feet)
– Box x 15 (each foot separately)

YHC remembered that 45 degree wall. Pax were prompted to execute 5 reps of the BTTW / Incline Merkin combo. Heck, Lets do 5 more.

The Main Event

Mosey back up to Mt. Midoriama for a little action on the hill.

Not to be confused with that wimpy deer. This routine is performed similar to the BLIMP by performing an exercise for each letter and increase reps each time. This morning we are gonna run up and down Mt. Midoriama between each exercise.
