Full of Hot Air

AO: The Gladiator

When: 06/09/2020

QIC: Speedo

PAX (7): Scratchoff, Stroller, Black Box, Viking, Shrinkage, Tebow, Speedo


Slack-issued challenge to join the AARP-eligible Q was taken up by seven pax.  It was a hot and muggy morning so we knocked out the disclaimer and took off.


Mosey to the pitch and did a half loop then circled up for:

  • SSH x12
  • Copperhead Squats x10
  • Overhead Claps x10

The Thang:

I created a mash-up of several different beatdowns I’ve endured over the last month or so.  We partnered up and did a round of BLIMPS combined with catch me if you can.

  • Burpees – PAX one does 10 burpees while PAX two bear crawls down the field.  PAX one then runs to catch PAX two and they switch.  Rinse and repeat for a total of 100 (not a typo)
  • Lunges – 100 total with broad jumps
  • Imperial Walkers – 100 total with bernie sanders
  • Merkins – 100 total with crawl bear (crowd favorite for sure)
  • Plank Jacks – 100 total with bunny hops
  • Squats – 100 total with slow mosey

When finished we circled up for a round of Jack Webbs – 1 merkin + 4 air presses, 2 merkins + 8 air presses, etc…made it to 9/36.  This is where the QIC experienced some shoulder muscle failure.

Mosey/stumble back to flag where Stroller closed things out with a round of American Hammers.



Prayers for Shrinkage friend diagnosed with MS, Black Box friend with pancreatic cancer

Praise for Stroller celebrating 8 years of marriage

Prayers for wisdom for us as men, healing in our nation, grace where it’s needed most and an acknowledgment that we need God more than ever and that we turn to Him.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Thanks for working hard and pushing me!
