[0700: disclaimer/core principles read to 13 PAX – Bald Eagle, Mad Cow, Dungeon Master, Reba, Forrest, Radio, Bubblegum, Stalingrad, BasicBro, Tiny Tom, Short Circuit (FNG), Shake Weight (FNG), and Roid Rage (QIC)]


Side-Straddle-Hops (jumping jacks) – IC – starting position move, exercise – 20X –

Squats – Together on my count – 20X – Proper Form


Bataan Death March

Routine, Partner, Run

AKA: Burpee Catch Me If You Can Indian Run…A combination of Catch Me If You Can and a traditional Indian Run. The last person drops and does 5 Burpees, while the rest of the Pax mosey in a line. After completing the Burpees, the last guy runs to catch the group, tapping the (new) last Pax on the shoulder, who then stops to begin his 5 Burpees, while the (former) last guy continues on to the front of the line. Continue until all Pax have performed a set of Burpees or until the Q calls it.

BRISK MOSEY to the Tennis Courts

Routine, Run

Reba stated that he didn’t know he joined a running group at this point. The bear crawl-1-2-3 should realign the through process!

Bear Crawl 1-2-3

Partner, Routine

Dora’s obnoxious neighbor who throws wild parties all night long. Partner up, perform 100 Merkins, 200 LBCs, and 300 Squats as a team. While Partner 1 is doing the 1-2-3, Partner 2 Bear Crawls across a defined space (parking lot works great), and Crawl Bear back, then flip flop until all Merkins, LBCs, and Squats are complete.

Run up the Hidden Staircase – End with Circle Merks!

Run, Routine

We did a brisk mosey over to the hidden staircase – ran up the steps – CoP – plank position – 10X merkins in a nice slow cadence – CIRCLE MERKS! The gift that keeps coming.


Routine, Music

Q plays “Thunderstruck” by ACDC. PAX complete 1 standard Merkin for every “thunder!” that is heard in the song. Plank during the rest of the song. Awesome way to end a workout and just make sure any juice that’s left is burned away.
