Let’s see what’s in the cards….and the PAX’s heads

AO: Windjammer

When: 09/01/2021

QIC: False Start

PAX (10): Townie, Cox, Funyun, Milli Vanilli, Brutus, Walkie Talkie, Morphine, Motorboat (DR), Dr. Rico, False Start


Low HC count for today, so I wasn’t sure what was going to happen today.  I figured I’d let the cards (and PAX) tell us what they wanted out of this group.


Mosey to the dam for our Downrange visitor so he could enjoy the lake view (and hopefully introduce him to a new exercise..)

  • SSH
  • Toy Soldier
  • Hillbilly
  • Arm Circles
  • COVIDs

Mosey back to the parking lot to grab a coupon and circle up under a light post.

The Thang:

You gotta love decks of cards you get from trade shows.  This one had 5 jokers in it!  I saved the PAX however and threw 2 away….or did I?  Spoiler alert:  We didn’t finish the deck so we’ll have to wait until next time.

Deck of death for today, with the PAX calling out the exercise of their choice when they drew the card:

  • Spades – Always Burpees 🙂
  • Diamonds – Lower Body
  • Hearts – Upper Body
  • Clubs – Core

Reps = card # up to 14 (for A).  Jokers are 25 reps.  We had some merkins, some BBSU, some runs, and lots of burpees.

Fun was had by all and Dave Grohl serenaded us the whole time.  He was the drummer for Nirvana and is the Lead Singer, Guitarist and overall badass for Foo Fighters.  I needed to add that for you, Dr. Rico.


Prayers of thanks for Milli Vanilli’s nephew getting out of Kabul.

Prayers of healing for Cox’s niece who has COVID.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

I enjoy these workouts.  The mumble chatter helps me get to know everybody better and remind us of the diversity we have within the group.  Keep on challenging each other, you never know when something you say impacts another PAX.
