The Pre-Thang
All PAX line up along goal line.  At “go”, everyone does Fast Rockettes until Convoy says “down”, then do a burpee, then back to Fast Rockettes. After 5 burpees, recover. Next is same drill, but with High Knees. After 5 burpees, recover. Last round is Chop the Feet, 5 burpees, recover. Stay on the goal line for The Thang. 

The Thang
Partner up.  There are three rectangles on the football field, equal size, cones at the corners. Exercise list at starting cone for each rectangle. Divide PAX pairs evenly among the three starting cones. Different exercise list of six exercises at each starting cone. 

At “go”, one partner stays by starting cone executing AMRAP exercise #1. Other partner sprints down long side of rectangle, side shuffle along short side, backpedal along 2nd long side, side shuffle back to starting cone, then switch places with partner, executing same exercise AMRAP while other partner circles the cones. Rinse and repeat for the next 5 exercises on list, then rotate clockwise to 2nd set of cones and do the same thing with that exercise list. Then on to 3rd set of cones until “Omaha” called.

YHC talked about being present. Told story of his dad, father of 7, always nodding off at family game night when YHC and his siblings were growing up…physically present but not really “there”. Understandably lots of pressure supporting all those kids. Now, he has grandkids and is very plugged in. No more nodding off, much more a part of the conversation, really fun to watch. It’s never too late to be present.
