NOV 23, 2016 WAWA: Short Week, Super-Suicide Drills!

This week’s WAWA is non-running focused.  Short week for most of us… I’m bringing back a workout we did a couple months ago…’ll be “thankful” when it’s all done!

This WAWA focuses on upper body and strength.  Don’t worry….you don’t have to be Superman to do this workout…..but being “super” will be the focus of this week’s devotional as we’re cooling down.

I’ll set up four stations as follows:

Station 1:  Suicide Pushup Drills

Station 2:  Kettlebell Strength Drills

Station 3:  Ultimate Burpee Shuttle

Station 4:  Core Salvation Drills

Participants will be divided up on the four stations.  Station 1, the Suicide Push Up drills, is our limiting station.  This means all the other three stations will continue to work out until Station 1 is complete, at which point that individuals yells “rotate”.  Station 1 goes to Station 2; Station 2 goes to Station 3; etc.

Rinse and repeat!

We’ll do each rotation three times, with breaks in-between.

Here’s further explanation on the stations:

Suicide Pushups:

Cones are set up approximately 5 meters apart as shown below.  Participants will run to first cone, then back, then do 1 push up.  Then participants will run to the second cone, then back, the do 2 push ups.  Participant will do 5 pushups after the circling back from the farthest cone.  At that point, push ups 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 are each done after only going out to one cone and back.


Kettle Bell Strength Drills:

The team on this station should repeat the following exercises in a circuit non-stop until it is time to go to the next station.

  1. 10 kettlebell squats
  2. 10 kettlebell figure 8 squats (each way)
  3. 10 kettlebell bent 1-arm rows (each side)

Ultimate Burpee Shuffles:

Two cones will be placed 10 meters apart.  Participant or team will do one burpee, then run to the opposite cone.  Then conduct another burpee and run back to the first cone.  Keep repeating that “loop” until Station 1 yells “rotate”.

Core Salvation Drills:

Similar to the burpee station, the participant or team at this station will continue to rotate through the exercises until Station 1 yells “rotate”.

  1. 10 reverse crunches
  2. 10 flutter kicks (each leg)
  3. 10 supine circle kicks (each way)
  4. 10 plank with forward reach (each arm)
