The Perfect #6 at Twin Team


6 studs posted in the gloom of Twin Team this morning – 5 to find out that Gumbo pulled a last-minute grab of the Q. With no plan in mind, YHC was thrilled to have a PAX of 6 and therefore, partner work and triple checks at my fingertips. This is what transpired:

Mosey behind BWES to the blacktop for COP, including:

  • Jazzercises
  • DQs
  • SSHs
  • Imperial Walkers
  • Tempo Merkins
  • LBCs
  • Box Cutters


Jacob’s double-sided ladder

Form up on one side of the blacktop. Run to the other side, do 1 burpee. Backpedal back to starting side and do 1 merkin. Continue, adding 1 burpee and 1 merkin at each side until 7 and 7.

A Suspended Triple-Check

Mosey to the jungle gym where the Murph usually happens for Gumbo’s long awaited sharing of his signature suspended jerkins in the form of a lazy triple-check. The wet/icy bars were an added bonus.

Partner 1 — suspends in air on the monkey-bars and does 10 jerkins (he is the timer). Partner 2 – does decline merkins with feet on the railroad ties edging the playground. Partner 3 – does squats. 3 times through.

Mosey to the JRHS Parking Lot for a Proper’ish Dora

Partner up. Partner 1 runs to touch the bus, does 10 SSHs and returns. Partner 1 works through a set of today’s proper dora exercise = 1 WWII, 2 merkins, 3 squats = 1 set. Flapjack and Rinse and Repeat until you complete 50 sets as a team.

Mosey to the covered wall/walkway of JRHS for some wall-time.

Find a new Partner. Partner 1 does 10 donkey kicks on the wall. Partner 2 holds balls to the wall (or pole) across the walkway. When the 10 DKs are done, meet in the middle for 10 PLTs each. Repeat for 2 rounds.

Mosey back to BWES for Mary, including:

  • Flutter Kicks
  • Freddy Mercuries
  • APDs
  • American Hammers
  • 10 Werkins OYO.

COT, Number-rama, Name-a-Rama and YHC took us out.


  • Thanksgiving Day convergence at 45MOM lead by TYA. Can someone confirm time – is it 0600 or 0700?
  • Friday after Thanksgiving – come watch TYA run loops at Forest Hill Park. Join him if you’d like. See the pre-blast, but basically there will be various loops (road, trail, biking options) and you can mix and match. Just run or bike a loop every hour on the hour until you drop or choose to leave. BYO-anything you need.


6 really is almost a perfect PAX size. Small and easy to control, yet all the partner/group exercise options are at your disposal. 12 and 18 are equally as versatile but start getting harder to control and push. It was a great group this morning. Thanks for posting and thanks for indulging my on the fly workout. Enjoyed it men! Have a great Friday.

No More Gumbo For You!

  1. Solid 6. Loved seeing Gumbo so excited about having a PAX of 6 and then looking over his shoulder to make sure there were no LIFOs to give him a prime number.
    Don’t sleep on the Balls to the Pole, much more difficult than the wall.

  2. Nice variety this morning Gumbo! When I saw how pumped you were about a PAX of 6, I was feeling a little anxious for you when we moseyed over to the blacktop…didn’t want to see you get deflated when a LIFO showed up.

    Enjoy your Friday!
