Pyramid of Pain at Bain
Nine Pax gathered at Bain Academy this morning for a Pyramid of Pain brought by YHC on a crisp and cool morning. Last night’s pre-blast promised a tough beatdown and I did not want to disappoint the fine men of Mint Hill so I brought out the pizza box cardboard with an old favorite for today’s fun and festivities!
Mosey aorund the parking lot and head over to the school entrance for:
- SSH (x20, IC)
- LSS (x15, IC)
- Windmills (x10, IC)
- Tempo Merkins (x10, IC)
- Plank Jacks (x20, IC)
- Mountain Climbers (x10, IC)
This is a pyramid beatdown intended to provide a full body workout along with some running. You start with 10 burpees on the first round, and then move onto 10 burpees + 20 lunges on the second round and then 10 burpees + 20 lunges + 30 merkins and so on and so forth until you reach last round which incluides all prior exercises plus 70 Freddy Mercury’s. Run a lap around the track after each round.

- Great work today everyone! This is a nice full body beatdown that can be down in about 30 minutes with a little push. Hugo liked it so much that he will bring it back to the coast for usage at his AO!
