Workout of the Day
Parntner Inverval: Complete 18 rounds for time of:
- 10 box jumps (24/20″)
- 8 thrusters (95/65#)
- 6 burpees
30-minute time cap
WOD Notes: In today’s partner interval workout, one person completes one full round while the other partner rests. Choose a thruster weight that lets you do all 8 thrusters unbroken, even when you’re tired. If after a few rounds you notice a big discrepancy between partners, modify reps as needed; for instance, the slower partner might decrease reps to 8/6/4.
Community Notes: Happy birthday Shawn C, Jere, and Anu!
Pediatric Cancer Fundraisers: September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and we wanted to pass along information about 2 fundraisers that are near and dear to two of our members. One includes a running/biking challenge and the other a push up challenge!
- CHOP Parkway Run & Walk, Virtual Edition. Since 2017, several ICA members have run the annual CHOP Parkway 5k on team Maren’s Fierce Fighters to raise funds for Pediatric Cancer research. This year the event is going virtual and will take place the entire month of September. All ICA members are invited to join Rick Kaniewski and his family’s Maren’s Fierce Fighters team in honor and memory of Rick’s daughter Maren. Throughout the month of September, log as many miles as you can (Run, Walk, Bike, Spin (Peleton), Swim). You can set your own personal goal while helping Maren’s Fierce Fighter’s reach their team goal of 6,546 miles! For more information or to join the team, click here.
- Jake’s Dragon Foundation’s 3rd Annual Push-Up Challenge. Jake was a student of Coach Kehl’s who passed of cancer several years ago. His foundation established a push up challenge for the month of September. Participants receive daily emails with a designated push-up goal for the day. You have until 10pm at night to record yourself doing the daily required push-ups and send your video to the organizers. Everyone who meets the daily challenge will advance to the next day! There’s even a Family option where family members can do push-ups together. For more information or to register, click here.
