I created The Hindenburg several weeks ago for my VQ at the Tower of Terror #TOT.  It was a crowd pleaser then and it didn’t disappoint the PAX for this Monday afternoon Matinee.

 

CONDITIONS:  Clear, pleasantly warm.  Estimated 68 degrees.  Abundance of jealous and curious bystanders.

 

APPETIZERS

SSH IC – 21x

Imperial Walkers IC – 21x

 

THE MAIN DISH

I reminded the PAX about the Hindenburg and how it didn’t end very well.  You could hear the egos already start to deflate.  Time to get this party started…

 

Perform exercise at Shakespeare Stage.  Ascend approximately 60 garden stairs.  Perform exercise at the patio behind Mary’s Cottage.  Jog towards Liberty Bridge.  Perform exercise at the Bowater Amphitheatre.  Descend stairs and cross the stone bridge to perform exercise at the Famous Root Tree.  Return to stage and plank.  That’s 1 round.

 

Round 1 – 10 Burpees

Round 2 – 20 Lunges

Round 3 – 30 Imperial Walkers

Round 4 – 40 Merkins

Round 5 – 50 Plank Jacks

Round 6 – 60 Squats

 

The previous Hindenburg proved 40 Merkins at each station was too ambitious.  Modified to 20 reps at each station.  Round 6 was reduced to two stations out of respect for time.  PAX were thankful.

 

For those keeping count, that’s 40 Burpees, 80 Lunges, 120 Imperial Walkers, 80 Merkins, 200 Plank Jacks, 120 Squats, 360 garden stair and 1.5 dreadful miles.

 

DESSERT

The Hindenburg went down before we finished and you know what grandma used to say…no Dessert if can’t finish the main dish.
