The Thang

-The pax started at the bottom of the stairs and ran to the first landing and back to the bottom and did an exercise of 1 rep.  They then ran to the second landing and back to the bottom and did an exercise of 2 reps and then the first exercise of 1 rep.  Each run up the stairs added an extra landing and an extra exercise in the pyramid.  There are are only 8 landings including the top, so the Q added the first and second telephone poles at the top as the 9th and 10th landings to make it a pyramid of 10 different exercises.  The 10 exercises were as follows:

  1. 1 man maker
  2. 2 squats
  3. 3 merkins
  4. 4 lunges (single count each leg)
  5. Motivators from 5 to 1
  6. 6 squat jumps
  7. 7 Carolina dry docks
  8. 8 side to side hops in cadence
  9. 9 Suzanne Somers
  10. 10 burpees
