PAX (13): Bo Knows, Cheneral, DREAMER, Macbeth, Mater, RaspberryPi, Spandex, Speedo, Tar Heel, vertigo, Zohan, Brownie


A great morning to Q at a different AO, a great opportunity to lead. Sometimes you want to pull out all the stops, and sometimes it makes more sense to be simple and effective. Today was one of those instances for the latter.

Given the Gladiator’s reputation for no-nonsense PAX, it was clear that this approach was warranted – and maintained.

To quote the dude who kept saying “Stay on target” during the attack on the Death Star, we did just that – to the point of not deviating from the plan no matter WHO made the request (more on that later). And although said “Stay on target” guy got blasted into atoms, the ultimate objective was met – as was today’s objective of accelerating everyone’s fitness.


10X if each of the following:



Moroccan Night Clubs

Side Straddle Hops

Copperhead Squats

Mosey around marking lot, across to North soccer field

The Thang:

BLIMPS with single exercise at each corner: Starting in the southeast corner of the soccer field, conduct a moving set of BLIMPS, 1 exercise at each corner, with Burpees x 5, Lunges (alpha) x 10, Imperial Walkers x 15, Mercans x 20, Plank Jacks x 25, Squats x 30. Mode of travel always facing north, moving via karaoake left, forward  run, karaoke right, Bernie Sanders back, karoake left. Plank for the 6. Repeat, conducting in reverse order. Hillbilly for the 6.

Rolling Dry Hump: Starting at south baseline, Pax conducted multiples of  1 Carolina dry dock / 2 monkey humpers / 1 alpha count walking lunge, starting at 1 CD / 2 MH / 1 ACL finishing with 10 CD’s / 20 MH’s / 10 ACL’s.

11’s: Starting at East sideline, conducted 11’s with hand release mercans / alpha count lunges. Bernie Sanders across the field between exercises.

Note: Motion was raised by F3 Alpha Nantan to change 1 leg mode of travel to regular run; motion was denied due to timing.

Mosey back to the flag for Mary, to include: V-ups, American Hammers


Announcements – 1) Don’t forget F3 Alpha Convergence at 6:30 this Saturday, 29 Oct at The Boneyard (Newtown Park).  2) Blood drive, 11/23, please see Slack for details.

Prayers: 1) For Zohan’s wife, as she travels to/from Israel. 2) For Bo Knows family, as they continue to deal with chemo; 3) For Vertigo’s coaching endeavors and his daughter’s powerlifting, may they be both successful and glorifying God.



Naked-Man Moleskin:
