9 brave souls broke the hold and posted at NoToll for another Gumbo Q – 2 more then another can reign over NoToll…this morning YHC wanted to check in on the STACHE – week 3 and make headway on the merkin challenge. It went like this:
Mosey toward the entrance to the park and Robious Road (almost thought the PAX wasn’t going to follow the different direction) – pick-up and escort McRib into the parking lot and circle up for COP, including the following all IC:
- Merkins x10
- SSHs x25
- Merkins x9 (Mr. Roper caught on to the idea quickly)
- Imperial Walkers x15
- Merkins x8 (others caught on)
- Arm Circles X10 forward and backward
- Merkins x7 (Hardywood joined the knowledge party on the pattern)
- DQs x10
- Merkins x6
- Helicopters x10
- Merkins x5
- LBCx x24 (YHC has a counting snafu — otherwise known as a shout out to Flatline)
- Merkins x 4
- Flutter kicks x15
- Merkins x 3
- Freddy Mercuries x15
- Merkins x2
- Merkins x1
Short mosey to the basketball court for the STACHE:
- Side Shuffle
Tammy Wynette (Half Now; Half Later)
Partner up and complete 5 rounds of 10 Merkins and 10 squats each
APDs x 25 IC
Basically Captain Thors — combinations of WWIIs and American Hammers keeping a 1:4 ratio but with a set of 5 merkins in between each set, as follows:
- 1 WWII, 4 American Hammers
- 5 Merkins
- 2 WWII, 8 AHs
- 5 Merkins
- 3 WWII, 12 AHs
- 5 Merkins
- AND SO ON…. Minds were blown on the math here – Shocker!
PAX completed as many rounds as they could in 5 minutes. I got to 7:28 and it hurt, I imagine 10:40 really really sucks…might have to test that theory soon?
Howling Monkeys – 2 rounds of ring of fire style passing around 10 monkey humpers and holding the position while the other PAX members do it.
Elevens – Merkins and Boxcutters 1 and 10 then run the length of the court and do 2 and 9…you know the rest
2nd half of the Tammy Wynettes
Mary – Hello Dollies, Rosalitas and Superman
Back to the flag for COT, number-rama, name-a-rama and McRib took us out!
The mumblechatter was wild this morning. Hardywood was in short sleeves and shorts and Tobit was in short sleeves and long pants — a different take on SOP but we will see if HoneyDo approves if the elbows are showing but not the knees…
A rowdy bunch and the howling got out of control, but work was put in for sure. Good job this morning fellas. I put the merkins somewhere between 280 and 310 depending on how many rounds of Captain Therkins you did.
See you at SOT!
No more Gumbo for you!
