Pax assembled on the Field of Dreams for some exercises to build their bodies for baseball. Pacer was a runner going around the bases and then rotating around the field, 3rd base coach, bench and on deck positions.
Runner exercises: 1st at bat were overhead block carry around the bases, 2nd at bat was bear crawl around the bases. YHC should have looked up the dimensions for an adult diamond as the bear crawl wound up be 120 yards. Whoof. YHC also attempted a break with a 7th inning stretch rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” between the first and second at bat. Seeing that effort falling on it’s face, he moved on to the dreadful bear crawl around the bases.
The remaining pax rotated positions as the runner completed his base run and did AMRAPs of the following exercises.
C-Squat Thrusters to work on getting low to catch the ball
P-Side Lunge to help with the wind up
3rd-Stationary Inch Worms to practice diving for those grounders
SS—Dead Stops Block Bells to work on those scoops
2nd—Curls to build biceps to pitch the ball for the 2-3-1 double play
1st—Front Lunges to stretch out for that throw
RF-Reverse Burpees. Since RF has nothing to do most of the time. This helps to work from getting up off the ground onto your feet.
CF-Backward Run to Fence and jump to touch top to rob the batter of that homer.
LF—Tricep Extensions for the long throw to cutoff to second
3rd Base Coach—Signal Taps to guide the runner
Dug Out (Work your way down the list until you are on deck)
Butt to Bench Squats
Bench Step Up
Bent Over Rows
On Deck—Around the world
After a rousing time, game was over and pax moseyed back for some mary.
