Editors Note: There was a plan at the start of the workout, but as more Pax showed up it became apparent to YHC that the original plan wasn’t going to work so we modified the entire workout as necessary 😀


25 SSH
20 Mountain Climbers
15 Merkins

Let’s go!

The Thang

Mosey to the zoo gate behind the pavilion and partner up.

Pax 1 runs up the trail to the pavilion to the top of the hill. Pax 2 does AMRAP squat thrusters (no coupon). Flap Jack

Cuddle Buddy 20 Count

Mosey down the sidewalk towards the hidden hill.  Find a pile of Timbers part way and stop for some work.  Pax 1 does AMRAP squat presses with a timber, Pax 2 moseys to the tennis court and back. Flap Jack.

Cuddle Buddy 15 Count

Mosey to the base of the hidden hill, merge partners into 3-4 man teams.  2 people run ~100 feet up the hill while the others do AMRAP BBS. Leap frog each other up to the pavilion at the top of the hill.

At the pavilion find a new partner. Pax 1 does 20 step ups then 20 derkins, Pax 2 runs laps around the pavilion until Pax 1 calls out they are done.  Swap places and repeat until the Q says done (3 rounds).

Cuddle Buddy 10 Count, but we lost count at 9 and had to start count over.

Find a new partner. Indian run down the same hill from the start of the workout doing 2 squats then running to the front. When you get to the bottom, AMRAP burpees.

5 Burpees OYO

Mosey back to the AO, sprint the last 50 yards.
