It’s been a real battle with this bulge (hernia) the last couple months and the time has come to get it repaired.  Today the repair is coming via sucking wind charging the Bulge (boob hill) with some fun in between
Battle of the Bulge…repair
We circled the light pull at the corner of Boob Hill closest to Mount Midoriyama
Round 1:  5 Burpees, 10 Merkins (IC), 20 Squats (IC), Bearcrawl down the sidewalk at the base of the Bulge then (after the pax were all lined up facing the bulge) sprint to the summit and back down to start
Round 2:  6 Burpees, 12 Merkins (IC), 22 Squats (IC), sub in duck walk for Bearcrawl and sprint again
Round 3:  7 Burpees, 14 Merkins (IC), 24 Squats (IC), sub in lunges for duck walk and sprint again
Round 4:  8 Burpees, 16 Merkins (IC), 26 Squats (IC) halt
Pax turned to face the summit by the beginning light pole and sprinted up and over to the opposite corner and back.  Rinse and Repeat x 3 ending up at the far corner away from Mt Midoriyama
Round 5:  9 Burpees, 5 Merkins (IC), SSH x 30 IC (progressively quicker every 10 reps)
Mosey back to parking lot near Blue Rhino
Flutterkicks x 15 IC
American Hammers x 10 IC
Partner sit-ups alternating on my call (churned out roughly 25 each)
Boat Canoe til time

Today’s workout certainly meant no disrespect to the actual battle of the bulge, one of the largest (and deadliest) battles in American history and one that helped lead to the end of WWII.
The Pax gave great effort today and the mumble chatter was minimal.  Replaced with sucking of wind and some splashing of merlot.
Reminded the guys that when you’re hurt, you’re hurt.  No shame in resting to heal up.  Ringwald tweaked his back this week and essentially had to be beaten over the head to not show up.  Props to him even though he’s a bammer. 
I have surgery to repair the “bulge” this coming Tuesday.  Prayers for the physician performing the surgery.  Not nervous at all…
