What an awesome day! Although today was brutally hot and humid (about 95 degrees at 9am in the morning) 6 teen athletes from Steve's Club joined 6 teen athletes from The Movement Program, lead by Brian Terpak for an EPIC workout at the Philadelphia Art Museum (yes, the same famous steps that Sylvester Stallone ran to the top of in Rocky!). The workout went as follows:
On the sound of GO, athletes must first carry all the equipment (including a plyo box) to the very top of the steps. Then run down to the bottom of the steps to perform:
50 Hand release pushups at ground level
100 Air squats at second level of steps
50 Push Presses (#95/65) at third level
50 Box Jumps at fourth level
30 Thrusters (#95/65) at fifth level
Then run to the bottom across the finish line. 15 minute CAP (*only one person finished within the CAP).
Check out the pictures below. ALL the kids that showed up today put 100% effort into this workout and really dug deep to reveal the strong heart, mental toughness and perseverance that every teen is capable of exericising when they decide to.
