The Thang: Time to Work

This will be upper body focus. We are going to add Blockies in because we didn’t get goofballs in the warmup.

All exercises will have 12 reps. PAX are to perform all exercise in the set and then run the loop. Rinse and Repeat

  • Curl
  • Merkin
  • Dips
  • Bent Over Rows
  • Inverted Pull-Ups

PAX are to complete a Blockie before they run the loop.

When the PAX finished the last set they were to hold Al Gore for the six.


  • Flutter Kicks x 12
  • Hello Dolly x 12
  • LBC x 12
  • Starfish Crunch x 12

PAX did a great job and we had a little time left so we were finished with the Circle of Goofballs.

That’s a Wrap
