PAX: Hambone, Recycle, Pound Dog, Gusher, Prosciutto, Zima, A-A-Ron

AO: Convoy


A warm, moist morning up on the mountain at 54°F and a slight mist. Luckily the rain held off for the hour we were there.


Some stretching, a few shoulder warmups, some more stretching, then some SSH’s.


Stayed at the parking lot just in case of rain so we could get to the covered area of the school. 1 lap around the lot equaled 0.3 miles measure by odometer on my vehicle.

-Lap 1 Manmakers

Traveled around the parking lot edge w/ coupon and stopped twice doing a total of 20 manmakers for the lap. Back at the start before lap 2, 5 Burpees OYO

-Lap 2 Deconstructed Burpee

Traveled around the lot stopping 5 times to do

  • 10 Squats
  • 10 Groiners
  • 10 Merkins
  • 10 Groiners
  • 10 Jump Squats

Finished the lap with a set of 25 curls and 5 Burpees OYO

-Lap 3 4×4’s

Traveled around the lot stopping to do sets of 5, for a total of 10 4×4’s. Split the last set into two stops doing 4 reps then 1 rep. Finished the lap with a set of 10 CPR’s and 5 Burpees OYO. May have stopped another time for an additional set of 5, but I don’t remember well enough so not going to count it.

-Lap 4 Bodybuilders

Traveled around the lot stopping twice to do two sets of 10. Tried calling an 8 ct. cadence on the second set, only to have Recycle take over. Definitely need to work on that one. Finished the lap with 5 Burpees OYO.

-Lap 5 Navy Seals

Traveled around the lot stopping a few times to do 1-2 Navy Seal (aka “Baby Seal” – Recycle) for a total of 10 reps. Finished the lap with 5 Burpees OYO & maybe 5 Manmakers OYO, my memory is a little foggy.

-Lap 6 Contra Burpee

Traveled around the lot stopping 10 times. A “Contra Burpee” is a burpee that increases the number of merkins consecutively each rep. 1st Burpee = 1 Merkin, 2nd Burpee = 2 Merkins…….etc. finished the round with 5………….Big Boy Sit-ups OYO.

Then we did sets of 5 Big Boy Sit-ups OYO & 5 Captain Thor’s for a total of 10 of each. Then 5 Burpees OYO, and finished with 15 Monkey Humpers.

Sets of 10 Monkey Humpers were thrown in whenever a random car would drive through the parking lot going by us. Which we did roughly 3 times I believe.


Vulnerability…………we are taught as men to not show any vulnerability because it’s a sign of weakness and as men that’s just not what we’re supposed to do, right?!? It takes more strength to confide in your brother next to you, or whoever you chose, than to just bottle it up inside. Prayer requests included Snowcream, Bobbit, Mr. Clean, & El Chapo?

Mumble Chatter

Not much in the way of memorable chatter. I kept everyone moving enough with no 10 counts. Definitely a “Beatdown” worthy Q. I kicked my own butt this morning.
