That’s why they call it “The Zoo!”

AO: The Zoo

When: 02/09/2019

QIC: Swiper, the Body

PAX (2): Swiper, the Body


The Zoo Watercooler was light on HC’s, but two showed up ready to kick things off in style.  Here’s how she went…


Mosey to the parking lot in front of the playground for warm-up’s, all IC.



Copperhead squats

The Thang:

We started things off with a mini-murph:

half mile run, stop at the pull-up bars for:

50 pull up’s

100 Mercans

150 Squats

All know that this one, even the mini, is a challenge.  1/2 mile back- PAX finished at 25:34

Next up, the Body takes us to the soccer field for a true Zoo-style beatdown:

Leap-frogs to the mid-line

line up on the hash for:

Bear crawl across, crawl bear back

forward crab walk across, backwards crab walk back

alpine skier’s (slight break from the animal theme)

duck walk, backwards duck walk

inch worms

3 rounds of Howling Monkeys (police car stopped and lingered for minute or two on this one)

mosey to the benches for dips and incline mercans

Finish up with the 8 gates of hell:

8 LBC’s

8 Reverse LBC’s

8 LBC’s with left leg up

8 LBC’s with right leg up

rinse and repeat x 8




-Praise for Clyde’s successful knee surgery

-Prayers for the Body for upcoming bachelor party weekend in Orange Beach.  May he serve as a solid role model for his younger co-travelers. (I seriously laughed when I wrote that, but we are praying for a safe and enjoyable weekend for all!)
