The Maize Backblast: Great Scott! Going Back to 1985

PAX: Ethanol, Wait Time, Hardhat

QIC: Ethanol

AO: The Maize

Weather: The weather was a very tolerable 50 with a light drizzle…. Nothing like the storm that took out the Hill County clock tower, Nov 12, 1955….

The intro and disclaimer were given…. Our internal DeLoreans were filled with motivation, not plutonium….. as we set out to hit that magical number of 88 (reps, not MPH).

PAX moseyed to the town square for a quick warmup…

PAX kicked off the T-H-A-N-G…. “Good Ole 1985”

The thang was made up of 4 stops, with a few exercises that would all add up to 88(reps/MPH).  Each stop was sprinkled with Burpee’s, Sumo Squats, Merkins and Mountain Climbers…. 22 reps each.   As is typically the case, the announcement of burpees was a crowd favorite.  Once we had completed 88 reps of each exercise, we set out on the final run back to 1985…. With a specific time hack to hit, we took off on one final run around the Maize, which would take us right back where we started.

Burpee—88 REPS

Sumo Squats—88 REPS
