Pre-Blast: Grand Rapids’ hottest AO is Ideal Park. This place has everything: Circle burps, tea bag squats, pickle pointers, dips, Ralpies, merkins, and the Catalina Wine Mixer. Tomorrow we’re celebrating the first birthday of Ideal Park as an AO so expect a special appearance from the Elf on the Shelf along with monkey humpers, pickle pounders, and a circle of goofballs. Bring your coupon and show up for the party at 0530. Party hats optional. HC here.

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

The Thang

We had four pain stations set up around the .35 mile loop.

Station 1: 40 yards of Ralphies+elf on the shelf

Station 2: 20 Tea-bag squats and 20 unbalanced coupon merkins

Station 3: 20 dips on a picnic table and 20 pickle pointers

Station 4: 20 monkey humpers and 20 X-factors

All Pax completed 3 full laps.  Toto nearly completed 4.


The pax ran the loop backwards to find Toto, because he was way out in front of everyone else.  Once we caught up, we joined him for 20 4ct Monkey Humpers IC and 20 4ct X-factors IC.  Then we moseyed back to the AO
