Week 1 of your recruitment will run until Sunday, 29Apr at 11:59PM Central Time!

 

Our instructors for this week are:

 

Clutch

gijoe-clutch.jpg

As the Joe's lead driver, Clutch is most concerned with keeping the motor pool running smoothly.  Impress him by helping move parts while he works by performing any squat exercise of your choice.  Only exercises with a personal AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible) of 25 or less can be counted, though!

 

Doc

gijoe-doc.jpg

Doc is the Joe's medic and will be keeping an eye on everyone throughout training.  Impress him by performing any core hold of your choice to demonstrate your overall fitness.  Only exercises with a personal AMSAP (As Many Seconds As Possible) of 45sec or less can be counted, though!

 

Snake Eyes

gijoe-snake-eyes-collage.jpg

Snake Eyes doesn't really need an introduction.  He's Snake Eyes.  He also isn't giving us any direction, so let's relax and focus for whatever comes next.  Log your time spent meditating (in minutes) to earn Snake Eyes approval.

 

Mutt & Junkyard

 Mutt-gijoe.jpg

Mutt & Junkyard are an inseparable pair and keeping up with them isn't going to be easy.  Log your time spent running and walking (in minutes) to impress them.  Only dedicated exercise time counts, not your normal walking throughout the day.

Bucket-on-a-walk-in-the-park.jpgThat works out well! I was going to try and get Bucket out for a long walk this weekend to try and wear both of us out! :D Too much rain during the week to really push for distance (darnit Virginia!). But the weather is nicer and the treadmill can get boring... so Park Adventure time GOGOGO!

 

Now I just have to figure out these other three guys... Hmm. *goes off to do research*

Guys, I'm a PE teacher, does getting active at work count? 

I spent about 20 minutes.. and that's being conservative running and walking around in the call of duty. Can I count that?

 

Also pertaining to the squats, that one has me really thinking, I can easily do most squats, :disillusionment: unless you're referring to single leg squats.... that means... okay... I'll see what I can do.

As long as it's dedicated workout time, and meets the criteria, you can count it.  My job gives me 3hrs a week of paid workout time, you can bet I'll be working on the mini during it. :playful:

 

And yes, you can do a lot more than basic bodyweight squats.  Find a variant that puts you in the right AMRAP, and go for it!

Lots of stretching and mobility exercises early in the week with plenty more planned for the week.  Got some zucchini and pork shoulder to get my chef on.  Might have to dust off the Geocaching app to get the exploring done as I don't get much adventure in during the week and the weekend isn't looking adventurous either.

Most the core exercises I do regularly, I can knock out more than 20, so it is just Toes-to-Bar for now.  Monkey bars are my climbing, which is great cardio too.  I don't do much for parkour, but I could do some rolls or something. 

 

Study time I had planned to crush this week, but my plan is getting crushed instead.  Imaging place didn't copy my MRIs so I have to go back today at lunch time, which cuts out time I was going to work on my IJRS homework.  Thursday I am already working through lunch and Friday I was having lunch with a friend.  I have Toastmasters tonight and tomorrow, which will count for study time, but I wanted to get more Jedi studying done this week.  Grrr.
