One of the last hot beat downs hopefully – it’s been a slew hot days for Sept carrying into Oct, but these Gladiators do not back down. They keep posting, expecting to work and get better. It pays to be a winner.

Why do we always face North? True North or magnetic North? Where do these stairs go?  What is the name of the US National Rugby team? These are questions that come up from time to time and we grapple with the answers. The Gladiators have answers, answers where there aren’t questions yet. Next time – the meaning of the number 42 and more.


  • SSH
  • Windmills
  • 8 ct body builders
  • Cherry pickers

The Thang:

Pick a partner.

Catch me if you can:

  • Round 1:
    • 3 Burpees while the other partner runs backwards. 1st partner runs to catch. Switch.
    • All the way to the other goal line.
    • Plank it up until all have finished.
    • Repeat going across the field in the 3 other directions to finish up where we started.
  • Round 2:
    • 5 merkins while other partner crab walks, 1st partner bear crawls to catch. Switch.
    • All the way to the other goal line.
    • Plank it up until all have finished.
    • Rinse and repeat back.

Hindenburg BLIMPS

  • Round 1 – 10 Burpees; Round 2 – 20 Lunges; Round 3 – 30 Imperial Walkers; Round 4- 40 Merkins; Round 5 – 50 Plank Jacks; Round 6 – 60 Squats.
  • Plank it up until all have finished after each round.
  • Round 2 was completed and we were out of time.

Back to the flag for Mary:

  • Flutters
  • Dying cockroaches
  • Mountain climbers


  • Convergence for Oct 19 – calling all Gladiators, past and present to post.
  • 3rd F working through the Five Love languages book meets Wednesday nights. Will discuss Chapter 4 next week. Check slack.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

  • Lots of mumble chatter – see the questions section
  • Good seeing Scrum and Bo Knows again
  • The six stayed close this morning – leave no man behind.
  • Time went fast this morning – YHC caught off guard when designated time keeper called “5 minutes”
  • It’s always an honor to lead – the best part of YHC’s day!
