NerdStrong Gym - Escaping Madness (or not)

Today's Sunday themed workout was titled McMansion of Madness. It was set up like an escape room. We had to find our way out within 10 rounds or we would succumb to Madness (which meant we had to do 13 Double Burpees).

Coach David told us some great back story for this house (it involved the producers of the movie John Carter). We had no idea what we would encounter from room to room. Potential foes were Squats, Jump Squats, Push Ups, Sit Ups, 1 Ring / 2 Hand Row, Lunges, Dumbbell Press and Planks.

We spent 3 minutes in each room doing :30 seconds of work and then getting :30 seconds of rest. We had one minute of rest between rooms for us to choose a new leader and have that leader choose our next room.

We went from room to room and did Squats, Jump Squats, Push Ups, Planking, more Jump Squats, Lunges, more Squats, Sit Ups, more Jump Squats and finally Dumbbell Press'. We thought we made found the exit but it was a trick and in actuality there was no way for us to get to the exit with in 10 rounds so we all went mad and had to do 13 Double Burpees.. it was horrible.

Though I think this was set up so we would fail it was alot of fun not knowing what we ahead of us. Would love to do this workout again in the near future.
