Challengers were reminded to not get too carried away, it’s only Monday. 1session down, 12 to go. They were told to Rise to the Challenge and turn up tonight for Operation Afterburn.
6pm STRENGTH – Operation Afterburn
WOW! I’ve never seen so much colour. It was an awesome atmosphere tonight. Before the session had even begun the YELLOWS had secured Bonus Points thanks to Brydie Abbott and her brand new Workout Muse.
We began our Super Circuit involving 8 stations that covered Hindmarsh Park. A tough agility run/hill sprint got the heart rate into overdrive and we completed 2 laps of the Circuit to the tunes of the Rocky Soundtrack and “I see you baby, shakin that a$$”.
After a quick drink we lined for Challenge 1 – Push Ups to the Death. It came down to ONE from each Team but eventually Elise Moore from the GREENS came home strong. She didn’t even look like she was struggling! Special mentions and Bonus Points to Wayne Starling from the BLUES and Joel Stewart from the REDS who battled it out for Silver and Bronze.
After a quick break, the Squat Jump Challenge began and it came down to a qsuare off between RED and YELLOW for the buns of steel award. Brydie Abbott featured again with some outstanding Squat technique but it was Chief Renee Miller who prevailed. Well done Chief.
The third Challenge proved a flop with some shaky looking Push Up castles so it was abandoned and the colourful Group photo was snapped.
PUSH UP CHALLENGE:
1st 20 points – GREEN (Elise Moore)
2nd 15 points – BLUE (Wayne Starling)
3rd 10 points – RED (Joel Stewart)
4th 5 points – YELLOW (Brydie Abbott)
SQUAT JUMP CHALLENGE:
1st 20 points – RED (Renee Miller)
2nd 15 points – YELLOW (Brydie Abbott)

So RED was crowned Winners of the Operation Afterburn STRENGTH Session and the progressive Point score is as follows:
GREEN – 117
RED – 93
