Celebrating our October birthdays with a game of Jenga FiA style! With CofFiA afterwards. Great start to the day with exercising buddies!

Started off with our warmup in cadence – 13 for my birthday, 17 for Zumbo’s, 21 for Sonic Boom, and 1 (Burpee) for Queso. That kept everyone on their toes!

Then we played lawn Jenga on an uneven table for added drama – there were any of 8 numbers on the blocks plus 4 Wilds which were Burpees, naturally. According to the rules of Jenga with a FiA 10 second time limit for the actual removal of a block, we went around the circle so every pax had a turn pulling a block and placing on top. While they were doing that, the rest of the circle was doing the exercise from the last block’s number / exercise.

In between the rounds, we took a lap/run with no lollygagging!¬†With one more turn to go, the tower collapsed. But we had enough fun before that time and were ready to move one! We’ll use this one again…

Finished up with abs and cooldown, then coffee – Happy Birthday Friday!
