Ratio of Pain

AO: The Bridge

When: 11/06/2020

QIC: Cookie @blunsford4

PAX (13): Boomer, Ready Mix, Flo, Popper, Ball Boy, Zohan, Meatball, Birdie, Puff Daddy, Dinghy, McGwire, Homer


YHC posted at the Hooch on Monday, so it was great to see most of these guys twice in one week.  This time, it was Cookie on Q.


After a quick disclaimer, we took a warmup lap, finally stopping at the side parking lot behind the movie theater for:

  • SSH
  • Windmill
  • Imperial Walker
  • Covid’s

The Thang:

It was at this time that YHC informed the PAX that we would be doing a circuit of 1:4 Ratio pain stations.  We moseyed around the town center property and found 5 destinations for the following:

  • Lt Dan – 1:4 ratio of Squat and Lunge
  • Bonnie Burps – 1:4 ratio of Burpee to Bonnie Blairs
  • Captain Thor – 1:4 ratio of Big Boy Situps and American Hammer
  • Donkey Merks – 1:4 ratio of Merkins and Donkey Kicks
  • Jack Webb – 1:4 ratio of Merkins to Air Press

With a few minutes to spare, we circled up for 5 minutes of Mary, ring around the rosey style.


It was great finally visiting this AO.  YHC told several PAX that morning that I believe it to be one of the best kept secrets around the Alpha.  It was cool to see all of the activity going on at 5AM including a women’s workout class, several runners and more.  The coolest part was the lighted trails that lead to workout structures including sit up and pull up bars.  Prayers were mentioned for Flo’s mom and Popper’s family.  Words were spoken to help our country heal from the recent divisiveness of the election and other events.  Coffeeteria was shared in the parking lot to follow.

Honored to lead.
