YHC had never Q’d the Deck of Death. Let’s do it and let’s come up with a playlist. The songs the YHC thought of right away were: AC/DC; The Jack, Kenny Rogers; The Gambler, Motorhead; Ace of Spades and Deal by the Grateful Dead. Upon research YHC found The Gambler covered by Johnny Cash and ZZ Top covering Viva Las Vegas. Threw in a few more songs and BOOM! Playlist was ready to go.

Arrived at the AO at 0520 and set the tunes up in the large parking lot along with the deck of cards and the exercise cheat sheets. Cruised back over to the COT and found Quaker and Sade ready to rumble. Steady flow of PAX arrived and we got rolling at precisely 0530.

Indian Run to the Coupon Pile

 

Each PAX grabbed a coupon and mosey’d to the large parking lot. YHC explained the Exercises for the Deck of Death and then queued up the jams. As The Jack by AC/DC started YHC flipped a card and the exercises went like this:

♠️ SPADES

STAY PUT FOR BURPEES

♣️ CLUBS

LUNGE WALK TO FIRST LINE FOR BBSU

♦️ DIAMONDS

TIN SOLDIER TO 2nd LINE FOR DIAMOND MERKINS

♥️ HEARTS

FAST MOSEY TO FAR SIDE FOR CURLS

 

JOKERS

BACKWARDS RUN TO COUPONS FOR 7 BLOCKIES

DEUCES WILD

ROTATING PAX CHOICE

 

Sunshine remarked that this must be a Uecker Deck, nothing but high numbers and face cards. The cards gave us a nice mix of exercises and everybody was pushing hard! Hamburglar, the music critic, was not a fan of ZZ Top’s cover of Viva Las Vegas. You know what?, he was right. Fast forward was hit and the tunes jumped to House of the Rising Sun by The Animals. We only got about a quarter of the way through the deck but we did get both Jokers and one deuce. The wild card went to Humpback and he called out a sprint to the coupons for 15 over head press.

As time was running out we lined up and all out sprinted to our coupons. We then returned them and mosey’d back to the shovel flag.

 

A quick round of PAX choice went like this:

15 Freddy Mercury’s IC – Brown Bag

15 (or so) Merkins In a crazy Cadence – Sade

15 Boxcutters IC ERC

15 Box Cutters in reverse IC ERC

15 Mountain Climbers IC Skidmark
