AO: Gladiator

When: 01/06/2022

QIC: Tebow

PAX (17): Bo Knows, Cheneral, defcon2, Delicious, DREAMER, Fire Drill, Ironhead, Laces, Moonshine, RaspberryPi, Scratch-Off, Speedo, Tar Heel, WickaWicka, Zohan, Brownie


4 Pre-runners came in after hotly debating the merits of Ace Ventura Pet Detective and how they compare to Ace Ventura When Nature Calls. Also discussed was the release year of Cliffhanger, the over/under was set at 1991, turns it was 1993… good to know. Final nugget from the pre-run, make sure to bring a sharp knife if you ever go climbing… just know that cutting the rope will keep you up at night for a while (or at least it will keep Scratch-Off up at night).

No FNGs, a couple of folks rolling in at 5:15:30 so we did some SSH waiting for them to come in.


SSH, Hillbillies, Weedpicker, Moroccan Night Club

Followed up with merkins to failure and PAX were instructed to remember their number.

The Thang:

Mosey to the hill for ascending BLIMPS.  Up the hill for an exercise, back down and added an exercise. 5 Burpees, 10 Lunges, 15 Imperial Walkers, 20 Mountain Climbers (Zohan insisted this should be merkins, but I had other merkin plans), 25 plank jacks, and 30 squats for the last round.  A great job by the gazelles to pick up the 6.

A mosey to the field for a little bit of 4 corners on the 18 yard box.  25 reps each of MH, Jump Squats, Mountain Climbers, Big Boi Sit Ups. Bear Crawl the short, mosey the long edge.

Crossed over to the other field for some dips and little baby crunches, this is what we call “filler”.

Back to the flag where Brownie led us in some V-ups.  We followed that up with another round of merkins and the PAX were challenged to do 1 more rep than they did at the beginning of the workout when they were asked to go to failure. A handful of PAX did increase that number.


Prayers for Ofir’s wife who is waiting to hear back about a job offer.  Prayers for Jordan who has some labs coming tomorrow and it is starting to look like a kidney transplant is imminent! Zohan is kicking off a new rucking AO tomorrow that will discuss Q source material during the rucks.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

The point of the two rounds of merkins to failure was to see if we quit on ourselves early the first time around.  David Goggins coined a 40% rule that states that most people are only living up to 40% of their potential, because that is where things start to get uncomfortable.

Stay Hard!
