I have always felt that I am better with actions than with words so it is with much gratitude that I thank Mel Joulwan for her great writeup about the Battle Royale that took place this morning. (For those who don't know, Mel is a previous Roller Derby Girl and the author of Roller Girl: Totally True Tales From the Track
(Here is a exerpt from her blog)
Two mighty forces met this morning in the Deep Eddy parking lot for an athletic showdown: Randal's LCRA 6:15 Bootcamp and Crystal's Deep Eddy 6:30 Bootcamp. But why be a fighter when you can be a lover? We joined forces in mixed teams and took on the challenge of med ball squats, renegade rows, and parallettes together to make sweet, sweet workout harmony.
total combined team reps, for time:
400 overhead squats, 10-lb. med ball
300 in-and-outs on parallettes
200 renegade rows, 15-lb. dumbbells
Our team finished last... AWESOME! If you're not gonna be first, you may as well be last and enjoy the ride.
Med ball relay:
1 runner sprinted w/ a med ball
4 team members plank
