Tebow’s Ladders

AO: The Gladiator

When: 12/03/2019

QIC: Tebow

PAX (13): Delicious, Viking, Strikeout, Renegade, Laces, Shrinkage, Mufasa, Speedo, Brownie, Stroller, Cheneral, Scratch Off


It was cold, it was windy, but it was Tebow Tuesday! It was great to see Shrinkage back and he dominated even if some shoulder modification was necessary.  Also good to see our recent FNG Strikeout returned!


Got that blood moving quickly with a burpee ladder warm-o-rama!

10 SSH IC 2 burpees OYO

10 BACF 4 burpees OYO

10 BACR 6 burpees OYO

10 Mountain Climbers 8 burpees OYO (I think this is where Renegade wanted to start an early revolt)

10 Weedpickers 10 burpees OYO

The Thang:

Keeping that blood moving and heart rate up.

Cardio Ladder

Suicide across the field.  All exercises were 2 count. Return to the baseline every time

18 yard box – 10 Bonnie Blairs

midfield – 20 SSH + 10BB

far 18 yard box – 30 mountain climbers, 20 SSH, 10 BB

endline – 40 Dying Cockroaches, 30 MC, 20 SSH, 10 BB

Merkin Ladder

Mosey to YHC’s favorite hill where I heard 11s were predicted, but no, we did a merkin ladder.  1 merkin, up the hill for 2, all the way up to 10, then back down 9, 8… you get it. Stroller led some Rocky Balboa’s and Brownie called some mountain climbers for the 6.  Laces called something before I got there, but I don’t think he got everyone on board.

Squat Ladder

A short mosey to the intersection of the lot on other side of the rec center.

5 squats, mosey to next intersection 5 squats + 5 squats.  Kept going all the way to the intersection by the pavilion where we did 5 squats x 7.  The accountants were enjoying the debate of “are we doing 10 squats? or are we doing 5 twice?”  They thought it was hilarious… CPA humor.


Since someone had the great  idea, we moseyed over to the pavilion for a quick round of 11s.  10 steps ups, 1 dip to start.  You know how 11s work.  Held a locked our dip for the 6.

A Mary Ladder? You can do a Mary ladder?

Sure you can.

5 sitting flutters with arms over head. 5 reclining flutters, 5 regular (4 counts). Then 4, 3, 2, 1 – everyone had figured out the ladder thing by now.

Viking called something, but YHC can’t remember what it was because it wasn’t boats and canoes (may have been a second attempt at a mutiny if he had) and the Brownie led is in some mountain climbers.


A call out from Mufasa to get yo’ Gladiator butts to the Christmas party!

Prayers for Cheneral’s wife (Melinda, Meredith, started with an M… I’m so sorry Cheneral I clarified and even then drew a complete blank) who is having a minor surgery for a benign tumor.

Remember the reason for the season as we shop and stress.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Thanks as always for letting me lead, I really enjoyed this Q and it was good to be back on a Tuesday!

Spandex, you were sorely missed, both for your witty banter and the coffeeteria on a freezing morning. Get well soon buddy!

Another shoutout to Shrinkage for battling through injury but still showing up! Way to battle bro!
