When: 06/02/2021

QIC: Meltdown

PAX (19): Aflac, Bronco, Echo, Switch, Tubbs, Norm, Thumper, 7-up, Yao Ming, Ozzy, Sell-out, I-beam, Squeegee, Road Trip, Foley, Vanilla, Backside, DD, Meltdown


As YHC was hurting from Monday’s Murph, the realization that all muscles were in pain and there wasn’t anything not worked on Monday, YHC tried to spread out the pain today.


Moseyed over to the parking lot by the rec center, gave the usual spiel and away we went.

15 SSH

5 Burpees

12 weed pickers

5 burpees

12 hill billys

5 burpees

Overheard some mumble chatter about burpees not being a warm up, but YHC was plenty warm after a few burpees.

The Thang:

Moseyed over to the lake for a Merkin mile. Started out with 10 merkins, then 1 lap around the lake. Total 40 merkins and 4 laps around the lake.

Then headed over to the wall by the baseball field for some Aiken Legs:

20 squats

20 box jumps

20 lunges

20 bonnie blairs

Next led the PAX over to the play ground for some partner work. While PAX 1 did picnic table shrugs, the other partner would perform the following:

50 LBCs

50 shoulder taps

10 slow squats

Partners would switch after each exercise. Next, in lieu of table shrugs, partner would do dips and decline merkins. It got kinda merky (see what I did there) at this point, but all the PAX were doing some form of exercise so YHC kept his mouth shut.

Lastly, we bear crawled 1 light post on the way back to the flag before finishing with some Mary. 8 or 9 different exercises, but the stand outs were the rapid fire freddie mercuries by I-beam and the burpees by Thumper because “I didn’t want you to think I had gotten soft.”


Wreck 4th anniversary Friday. Mosey starting at 530 followed by breakfast in the big parking lot.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

1 year since Juul dragged YHC and a few other PAX from Wickerberry out into the gloom. Appreciate all the push this past year and looking forward to another year.
