AO: Gladiator

When: 2024-02-06


PAX (13): 40, Bo Knows, Chanel, Cheneral, defcon2, Hitchcock, Jackalope, Macbeth, Mater, Scratch-Off, Spandex, Speedo


The group gathered in the balmy 34* morning eagerly awaiting what fun the Q had planned. There was some small commentary on a PAX's hat choice but nevertheless, spirits seemed high.


QIC led a quick disclaimer on the fly as we moseyed around the parking lot. PAX shuffled and shuffled and then, upon spotting a late HIM (... HITCHCOCK...), Q called for a 5 burpees / 5 monkey humpers / 10 burpees / 10 monkey humpers while we waited. The group made it to the shelter parking lot for some light stretching and mumblechatter. The group learned a new word - "Dadgum" and the many ways and methods of usage.

The Thang:

QIC mentioned that though he planned a full Q, he was inspired in the last minute by a IronPAX workout from 2020. After diving into the sacred archives, the Q emerged with this lovely treat. Group was told to take a full lap of the parking lot. After, do 100 merkins. Then take another lap and complete 90 squats. Continue till Q calls time or another exercise! After about 10 minutes or so, the Q called for everyone to line up for a quick 2 sets of "Killer Bees"
  • 10 yard Broad Jump
  • 10 yard Bear Crawl
  • 10 Burpees
  • 10 Alpha Ct Bonnie Blairs
Q called for a quick 1/2 lap bernie before PAX returned to the original run / merkin / run / squat workout for another 10-15 minutes. Q then called for the group to partner up. 1 partner to the shelter to perform "jean Valjeans" (lift the picnic tables) while the other partner does 15 LBCs, 15 Leg Raises, and 15 American Hammers. PAX completed 3 sets each. Finally with the last 10 minutes or so, Q called the group back to the original run / merkin / run / squat session. Mosey back to the flag for 60 seconds of high knees and burpees.


  • Mater / DC2 - thankful for a rich mens retreat
  • Hitchcock - work stress / budget cuts
  • Spandex - sister's husband / BIL passed away. Praying for family healing.
  • Chanel - Great Uncle has been sick
  • DC2 - his boss at work has been sick
  • Zohan's overly complex Deck of Cards. Check slack.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

I love spending the morning with you gents! There's not a better way to have more fun, sweat, and laughs for free at 5:15am. Grateful for each of you, old friends and new! And I'll be DADGUM if we didn't have fun. If you can dream it
