Down the Ladder

If you’ve been coming to NP_OAK for a while, you might have recognized elements of this morning’s workout from our East Bay Free Fitness days.

Whether it was Alex’s favorite Remember the Titans bounce (HT Zip at NPSF), the sprint to the gazebo, or the 20-15-10-5 ladder, there was plenty this morning for OG NP_Oaklanders to vibe on.

Fortunately, since it was all so familiar, there was ZERO CONFUSION about what loop to run or what sequence the exercises were supposed to be done in. (Jk. Maybe Alex needs to be clearer when explaining the workouts…)

At any rate, nice work out there today gang. Y’all crushed some lunges, pushups, planks, and loops. And that’s just a great way to start a Wednesday.

BONUS: If you read this far in the blog, DON’T TELL ANYONE, but come see Alex and Rebecca at the start of next week’s workout and tell them the secret code (“pumpkin spices”) for a special prize. We’re trying to get more people to read our phenomenal blog 😉
