Disclaimer: This is a free, volunteer, peer-led workout. I am not a professional. I have no knowledge of any injuries or fitness considerations. It is each person’s responsibility to be safe and modify exercises if you need to. The most important thing is that you don’t get hurt, and that you finish. Remember, the workout should be you vs you.          


We started with 4 ct SSH in cadence x10, then took a mosey to the other side of the AO. As we moseyed back, we stopped to set up six cones and do 10 reps of each exercise in cadence. We did 10 plank jacks, squats, BBS, dips/pull ups, alternating coupon merkins, and SSHs.


We did a ladders beatdown with six stations. Each Pax started at station 1, then did station 2 and then 1, then 3-2-1, etc until everyone reached the last station and performed all six exercises on their way back to station 1. The exercizes were:

  • Station 1: 20 SSH
  • Station 2:  20 alternating coupon merkins
  • Station 3: 20 Pull ups on the playground or Dips on the park bench
  • Station 4: 20 BBS
  • Station 5: 20 Squats
  • Station 6: 20 plank jacks


We circled up for a time of extended planking. While everyone planked, two pax farmers carried a coupon to the other side of the parking lot and back. We did this until everyone had a chance to do two farmers carries.
