Windy City


A Pax of 2 ventured forth from their hotel to the park across the street.


20 SSH

15 Don Quixote

20 Imperial Walkers

Arm Circles- 10 small, 5 large – reverso

Line up at the 12 on the giant sundial in the park. Bear crawl around the outer circumference stopping at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 markers to do that many repetitions on the following:

lap 1 – merkins

lap 2 – burpees

Mosey down to the park adjacent to navy pier for some Dora.  Partnered up, one of the pax would run the loop around the fountain while the other did the following: 100 merkins, 200 flutter kicks, 300 LBCs.

Next on to 11s with dips on the park bench and derkins on the fountain mound.

Mosey back to the hotel and perform a round of pole smokers.

Finish the workout with a ring of fire, twice around!

McRib took us out post announcements.


Perfect weather today for an urban nomad beatdown in the Windy City the morning after a Cubs victory!  We  attempted to get others to join us, but the prospect of working out at 530 deterred many.  Another day to go to EH more volunteers.

it was awesome laying in the park during Dora and watch the city come alive as lights came on in a fragmented pattern across the neighboring apartment skyline.

Go Cubs!

  1. Nice work Lockjaw! I enjoyed the comaraderie and fellowship during our workout this morning. The rock around the clock start with merkins and burpees brought on the gloom pretty quickly. Also really liked the ring of fire at the end.

    Way to start the day right.


  2. Nice work. Hopefully working off some cold ones enjoyed at a local bar last night while taking in the Cubs win.

  3. I’m a lifelong Cub fan, and I’m super jealous that you guys are in Chicago. Have fun, and Go CUBS!
