The Thang – island time

Mosey to the Volcano: 5x up and down the hill (paved driveway hill). 1 burpee at the top and 1 burpee at the bottom, for a total of just 10 burpees.  Easy.

Based on mumblechatter, you might have thought the volcano hill looked like this

Mosey to the top parking lot for Island Time…with classic Hawaiian music echoing about…

Pax reaction to soothing island music

We divided into 2 groups.  Instructions were to leisurely travel the parking lot ocean, randomly stopping at islands along the way.  Look for the islands inhabited by cones, with workout instructions plus directions on mode of travel to the next island.  Don’t rush through the exercises. Don’t worry about reps. Concentrate on good form (Flo-Rida form) and full range of motion.  Take it easy, you’re on island time…

The islands:

  • crab cakes x20IC, lunge to next island
  • monkey humpers x20IC, bear crawl to next island
  • inch worm around island, crab walk to next island
  • LBC’s x20IC, then traveling Lt. Dans to next island
  • hand release merkins x15, lunge to next island
  • moon gods x5 each side, then run the volcano x5 (with 1 burpee at top and bottom)
  • PLUS, there was a hidden Fantasy island behind the baseball concession stand, consisting of derkins x10, step ups x10 (each leg), and irkins x10, followed by mosey to the next island.
Imagine group B, immediately picking the volcano island, just having completed the volcano. Back to back. True story.
Imagine group A, getting a card switched on them, so they had an “opportunity” to do an extra volcano. True story.
When group A picked up all the cones and went for extra “stretch” time in the lower lot.
