Too Early for Merkin Challenge?


Brisk morning with 8 warriors ready to hit the ground running YHC 2nd VQ, as Handshake put it, argued if Hot Potatoes counted, no conclusion. Clock struck 5:30 and heres what went to down:

Mosey to the front of school for COP:

  • SSH
  • Touch your toes, center, left, and right
  • Cherry Pickers
  • Reach for the Stars
  • Helicopters
  • Arm Circles small/big and reverso
  • APDs
  • WWII (on your on in cadence)
  • Scorpion Kicks
  • Merkins

The Thang:

Mosey to the bus loop grab a pole and hold 6 inches while we rotate to the end, timer did 5 pole smokers and ran to the next available pole and so on.

Mosey to the basketball court back of school, watch your step for the raise concrete pad, nice recovery from Pigskins trip, its like he practiced for it and kept going. Split into 2 groups with 3 sets of exercises: 19 Squats, 86 LBCs and 36 Merkins in honor of YHC Birthday yesterday. The exercises were the timer and other group ran to far end of the court and back.

Mosey to the larger court area for a Dora. Exercises where 100 Merkins, 200 Donkey Kicks and/or Squats and 300 LBCs. Timer ran to the far end of the court and back.

Time for who can last the longest with a Balls to the Walls and Australian Mountain climbers, Pigskin won. Wrapped up with a people’s chair arm stretch to the sky and ankles, knees, and shoulder taps in cadence.

Mosey to the large parking lot at side of school, line up on parking space lunge every 2 spaces and complete 2 squats and slowesy on the return with 10 merkins every 2 spaces.

BTTF: circle up for a Mary of APDs, Flutter Kicks and WWII (truly on your on this time) to wrap up.

Thanks for the opportunity to lead this morning. YHC didn’t have much of a plan today and ended up with lots of Merkins completed and everyone knocked it out of the park, just getting everyone prepared for any upcoming Merkin challenges. Really enjoyed leading and YHC will make more of an effort to sign up on Q sheet more frequently. Appreciated the mumble chatter mixed in with all the counting. Look forward to leading again soon. Attila took us out.
