Pax: Sandman, Primus, Vamos, Ragnar, Nice-N-Easy, Miyagi, Crosscheck, Carrot Top, Jiffy and Pinto (Q)
Moleskin: Initial forecast called for heavy rain, so Pinto wasted his time Friday evening converting his workout to rain-friendly. The effort proved unnecessary, Saturday dawned clear and bright, without a drop of rain during the workout. 10 Pax showed up for Pinto’s second Q.
Warm-Up: A few different runs and static stretches to start the workout, a nice, easy start to the day.
11’s: Circled up and started the first routine with a combination of Merkins and Squats for a total count of 11. First 10 Merkins and 1 Squat, then 9 and 2, etc., progressing until we reached 1 Merkin and 10 Squats.
The Beast: We then lined up for our second routine, the “6-6-6”, 6 exercises, 6 sets and 6 reps as we progressed across the field. Burpees, Merkins, Squats, Plank Jacks, LBCs, and finally Side Straddle Hops. This was a tough one!
Rubber Arms (just made this name up): We moseyed over by the chin-up bars for our third routine, Partnering up, one partner Planked, while the other did 10 Merkins, 10 Tricep Dips and 10 Shoulder Presses. After each partner did 10, then we moved down by twos to 8, 6, 4 and finally 2 reps. This was going to be a heavy arm day!
Four Corners Escalator: Back to the field for our fourth progressive routine, which turned out to be a dosey, much harder than it looked on paper. We sprinted around the four corners of the field, stopping at the first corner to do 10 Merkins, the second corner to do 10 Merkins and added 20 Squats, at the third corner we did 10 Merkins, 20 Squats and added 30 LBCs. Back at the fourth corner we did the 10 Merkins, 20 Squats, 30 LBCs, and added 40 Side Straddle Hops. As if that wasn’t bad enough, we had only come to the top of the escalator, now we needed to come back down. So, back to the first corner to repeat the 10 Merkins, 20 Squats, 30 LBCs and 40 Side Straddle Hops, at the second corner we dropped the 40 Side Straddle Hops, at the third corner we dropped the 30 LBCs, and finally at the fourth corner we dropped the 20 squats and just did the 10 merkins.
The Wall: Moseyed over to the wall for the People’s Chair and a few Dad jokes, followed by Mike Tyson’s, we debated on a second set of Mike Tyson’s, but decided to cut our losses and move on to our final routine.
Jacob’s Ladder: We moseyed over to the small hill for this progressive finale. A run up the hill, 1 Burpee, then back down the hill was one set. On the second set, we did 2 Burpees, on the third set, 3 Burpees, etc. up to the seventh set and 7 Burpees. Most of us had hit a wall by this point and were ready for the misery to end.
Mary: Rotation of couple favorites to bring us to the top of the hour, and this workout was complete.
COT: A couple announcements, Vamos let us know about some upcoming hunters training in Louisville, and Nice-N-Easy asked if the group wanted to participate again in an upcoming Police fundraiser sandbag carry. More info on both to be posted in Slack. Nice-N-Easy took us out.
