YHC had originally planned a workout that had two difficulty levels so that all PAX could be challenged, Original and Extra Crispy. After surveying the field at 0700 this morning, I concluded that these HIM deserved the Extra Crispy version, modified for even more suck.

Coupon carry to the zoo pavilion
10 Blockees
Overhead coupon carry to the tunnel under 196. Every time any pax dropped their coupon, all pax did 5 burpees IC. After three rounds of 5 burpees, YHC increased the requirement to 10 burpees. ~40 burpees completed before we arrived at the tunnel

Tunnel DORA:
100 Burpees
200 4 ct. Flutter Kicks
300 Lunges (each leg is 1)
The pax that isn’t working runs up the tunnel and back

Repeat the overhead coupon carry back to the AO. All stops are 5 burpees. ~6 stops.
