Some truths are universal, like taxes are bad and death is a certainty. Today, the elementary kids added to that list. After finishing their WoD of 21-15-9 OHS and Burpees, Zolie said with complete seriousness, “Burpees are awful.” I agreed and added that pretty much everyone else thinks the same thing. They all did a great job of learning the OHS and showing consistency in their workout. They ended with some tunnel tag. Everyone looked like they had fun and got in a good workout.
The warm-up for both groups was some lateral hops over lines and bear crawls between lines.
The elementary kids also learned how to deadlift with our newest gym additions: 10lb kettlebells.
We try to keep things both fun and functional, so along with learning the deadlift, both groups also got a chance to work on their pulling strength. Who doesn’t like a good game of Tug-o-war?
