Mosey to parking lot just south of AO where cones we set up 30 yds apart.

Pax runs to far cone and performs 20 merkins, runs back to start cone and performs 1 squat.

Pax repeats process decreasing merkins by 1 and increasing squats by 1 each time always equaling 21 reps.

When Pax reaches 1 merkin and 20 squats he calls out Blackjack. (T-claps for Less for being first to hit Blackjack)


Mosey to the stairs for one climb to the top and back down, plank for the 6. (Didn’t want to ignore the stairs as the newly minted site Q) 😁
