Post-it of Pain!

AO: Gladiator

When: 04/05/2022


PAX (10): Cheneral, defcon2, DREAMER, Fire Drill, Ironhead, Laces, Macbeth, Moonshine, Speedo, Brownie,


You know the drill. All vets, let’s get after it. Grab your cinder and let’s mosey!


After a quick Mosey to the field, we dropped our cinders at the closest corner of the field (to be used soon!). The PAX did a mosey to the circle for a warm up

  • Weed Pickers
  • Side Straddle Hops
  • World’s Greatest Stretch
  • Sumo Squat / Groin stretch
  • 4 squats / 5 burpees (since today was 4/5)


QIC said in his best impression of Liam Neeson’s portrayal of Ra’s al Ghul – “Are you ready to begin?” (Deep Batman Begins reference for the nerds)

The Thang:

POST-IT OF PAIN! (Variation of a Cooper)

Since QIC didn’t have a board at home and an absurd amount of post-it notes, such was the weapon of today’s woes. PAX gathered at the corner of the field with all the cinders… time for the FUN!


  • 10 rounds. Do the exercise, tap a FULL lap
  • After completing a FULL lap, you “Collect” 15 BLOCKIES as your reward! Yay! Congrats!
  • Complete as many rounds as you can in the time allotted.
  1. 50 Merkins
  2. 50 Imperial Walkers
  3. 50 ALPHA COUNT Mtn Climbers
    1. Seriously – who wants to do Beta count…
  4. 25 Burpees
  5. 25 Jump Squats
  6. 50 Kettle Bell Swings
  7. 50 American Hammers & 50 LBCs
  8. 50 Merkins
    1. Some PAX took note that we “already did merkins” to which Brownie reminded them to “Do them again!”
  9. 50 Squats
  10. 100 Cinder Presses
    1. Finish w/ a full lap



  • Brownie and Laces made it to round #9 but no further and fire drill claimed to have finished and working his way back down the ladder… the jury is out on if he was telling the truth haha
  • Everyone pushed themselves well this morning! Very little chit chat or jokes.
  • Fire Drill did provide the funniest quote regarding the 15 Blockies – “Dreamer, I don’t think you know what a reward is” (haha).


Speedo – dad’s strokes / TIAs have stopped. Praise the Lord but scary

Moonshine – Baptizing his daughter this weekend! Prayers / awareness for mental health. Look out for each other. You don’t know who is in the dark night of the soul.

DC2 – Manchester had his knee surgery but we back in the hospital b/c of blood clots. Scary and prayers needed. DM Me, DC2, or Speedo for his cell.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Gents of the Gladiator!

What a way to start the morning! I tell you the truth – each morning in the gloom brings more joy that this little “naked-man moleskin” box allows. I am grateful for each of you and I respect most of you (haha just playing!). I pray for each of you often and I KNOW the Lord continues to us this group to impact those in our lives for His glory.

Grace and Peace brothers,
