Pre-Blast: I first posted with F3GR 10 months ago and tomorrow will be my 100th post. Come join me at Manhattan park as we do all the things that made me almost puke over the last 10 months. Coupons required.

5 Core Principles: Free of charge | Open to all men | Held outdoors, rain or shine, hot or cold | Led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion with no training or certification necessary | End w/ a Circle of Trust


  • Motivators from 5
  • Mosey lap
  • Circle burp (11 burpees)

The Thang

The workout was based around 5 exercises–uneven coupon merkins, BBS, coupon curls, squats, and 4 count mountain climbers.

Each pax did 50 of the first exercise, then 5 burpees, then motivators from 5, then ran a mosey lap.  Continue until you’ve done the full circuit with burpees, motivators, and a mosey between each exercise set.

For the second time through we reduced the number of each exercise to 25.

All finished one complete circuit while many made it halfway through the second circuit.


We split in to two groups.  The first group did a coupon carry around the outside of the parking lot while the other group held plank.  Switch and repeat.
