Warm up to “Aint No Mountain High Enough” dance routine

Jog over to Tombstone Hill for our suicide relay. Each section of the suicide is a leg. One complete suicide is made up of four legs and is considered one round.We split up into teams of 4, with one team of 3. This is a suicide relay, where each person does one leg of the suicide. While that person is running the leg, the other teammates complete the team challenge exercise at the bottom of the hill (Round 1– mountain climbers, Round 2 – jabs & uppercuts, Round 3 – inchworms, Round 4 – arm circles). The team must complete 100 cumulatively. The next person cannot start the next leg of the suicide until BOTH the previous leg is complete AND the cumulative total has been met.

There is some flexibility here – if the person running the leg returns to the team before the team exercise is done, that person can help meet the cumulative total and vice versa. Once both conditions are met, all members must stand up and do a hands-in FIA cheer before the next leg can start. Whatever team finishes all four legs first is the winner and can choose the “break” cardio for them and the others between rounds (burpees x 10 or lap up and down the hill). Any team that finishes before others must help the remaining teams finish. After two rounds, switch up the teams. With teams of four, your leg will rotate every round, so after four rounds you will have done all four legs. With teams of three, you’ll only do three rounds and one person on the team will have to do two separate legs in each round – that person will rotate. With teams of two, you can choose to do two rounds or four rounds, depending on time. Both people will do two legs each round. Decrease the cumulative team exercise count to something more reasonable since only one person will be doing it.

COT: There is a Scottish proverb that says “Enough is as good as a feast”. Life in Scotland is very simple and they are grateful for what they have, which is usually no more than they need. And that is enough. We can apply this to many areas of our life, but I think it’s helpful when we view our bodies. Our body may not look exactly how we want it to look or be as athletic as it used to be, but it is incredibly capable.And if you used it to even show up at a workout, then that is enough. And enough is as good as a feast.
