Hard Eight

I am, as Dave likes to say, “risk averse.” I don’t even like the idea of a surprise party.

But I like games of chance, and I LOVE Vegas, baby.

Craps is my game. What’s more fun than rockin’ a sparkly dress with a cocktail in one hand and a pair of hot dice in the other?! One time, I even played for an hour or so at the Hard Rock Casino with the guitar slinger himself, Mr. Brian Setzer.

In craps, the Hard Eight — two fours — is a long shot bet, and it pays 9 to 1. Super sweet if you hit it; a heartbreaker if you don’t.

This morning, Crystal gave us a workout that will forever be known as the Hard Eight. Check it!

8 rounds:

  • 20 jump squats
  • 15 walking lunges w/ overhead PVC rotation
  • 20 PVC snatch
  • isometric low squat – 30 seconds
  • sprint up hill

Typed up, it doesn’t look like much, but it was a killer quad-and-lung burner! I was in hot pursuit of Lyssa the whole time. She smoked me on the run, but I managed to catch her in the middle section so we started the isometric squat together every time.

Our time: approx. 30 minutes

Whew!
