Perfect! Mid 60’s with a light breeze.


Extra Blocks were required, but the math on how many we would need quickly got complicated. Blocks were all over the place. Quick warmup consisted of: Forward Fold OYO, Iraqi tea time OYO, a couple of basic yoga stretches, LB arm circles IC x10, Seal Claps IC x10, Overhead Claps IC x10. 12 PAX in attendance, we split into 4 groups of 3.

The Thang
Climb with Dora- 2 way travel
CLIMB as an acronym: CPR’s, LBC’s, HC Imperial Walkers , Merkins, Bent over rows.

3 man teams. One man performing reps, another man traveling to the end of the parking lot to complete 10 merkins and return, third man carrying 2 coupons around the circle drive. Even rotation, reps, run, blocks.

Round 1- 50 CPR’s, 100 LBC’s, 150 HC Imperial Walkers, 200 Merkins, 250 Bent over rows- all group total numbers.

Round 2- 100 CPR’s, 150 LBC’s, 200 HC Imperial Walkers, 250 Merkins, 300 Bent over rows

Round 3 would have gone up in reps also, but to my knowledge no group completed round 2.


Climb higher, run faster. In all areas of life, seek to accelerate. Look for a higher place to go. Find an example and follow it.


“My forearms we sore before we even started”

“Ponce, stop doing all the reps. Save some for the rest of us.”

“We’re still in round one?!?”


First Monday- No Chubbies. See Slack for other 3rd F opportunities. Upcoming 4th F and Convergence events.
