Worst merkin ever?

AO: The Wreck

When: 07/24/2020

QIC: Meltdown

PAX (9): Sellout, Norm, One-Call, Cutie, Bear, Smackdown, Khakis, Juul


There were only 9 PAX this day, as I imagine most decided they wanted their extra hour of sleep for that other AO off Mimosa, or they were saddened about the postponement of the Beer mile and could not bare to get out early for this Friday BD.


We moseyed to the parking lot by the fields after circling for Smackdown, who was coming in hot for the early BD right on time.

SSH x15

Hill Billies x15

Weed Pickers x15

After finding out the Q, Khakis requested diamonds and YHC thought it’s never too early for diamonds.

Diamonds x10

The Thang:

We moseyed over to grab a lifting coupon and then headed towards the field for a different take on Four Corners.  After all those Romanian deadlifts Wednesday and feeling his chiseled pool body was slipping away, YHC thought it good to work some core and upper body.

First corner: 25x CPR

Second corner: 25x Big Boys

Third corner: 5x worst merkin ever (aka WMD). 1 rep of worst merkin = 1 wide merkin +1 regular merkin + 1 diamond (you’re welcome, Khakis).

Fourth corner: 15 jump squats

Rinse and repeat

YHC had forgotten about the skull crusher portion of the CPR, but thankfully the PAX remembered.  Between the CPR and worst merkins, YHC decided to call an audible a few minutes early to save everyone’s triceps before heading back for Mary.

Added a couple of quick sprints starting at goal line: one sprint to 50 yd, jog back to goal. One sprint to 25 yd, jog back.  Gotta keep up those cat-like reflexes.

Upon completion of these sprints, a few PAX groaned and YHC felt like a seasoned Q.

After all coupons were returned, we did one last jog down the parking lot for 5 burpees, then moseyed back.

With fatigue setting in and Sellout wanting more tricep work, he called out stone mountains, followed by Norm calling lunges, and with 15 seconds left, Bear called out burpees, which elicited groans all around.  The PAX were able to get a few in before time was called, except Smackdown, who went into animal mode and appeared to finish all 10 as he continued after time was called.


Announced that the beer mile is being postponed but may be done virtually.

Prayers for the community during this time.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

After Squeegee held Q school on Monday for all the Wickerboys that have joined up recently and Juul putting the EH on us with the open Q spot, I decided I might as well rip the bandaid off and get my VQ over with.
