The Thang:

The Sheldon Cooper – Burpees, Squats, Merkins, & Big Boys.  Start with 10 of each exercise and one corner of parking lot, next is 9 of each exercise at the far corner of parking lot, next is 8 of each exercise at original corner, and continued down to 0.  We planked at the first corner each time for the 6 – it’s not all about getting done first, but working together.  55 Merkins, total Merkin count at 100.

Wheel of Merkin – Perform 5 Merkins IC each at 12:00, 3:00, 6:00, & 9:00 using a curb to place hands or feet on.  20 Merkins, total Merkin count 120.

11’s (I called this Mike’s Punch Out because both exercises have Mike in the name, from Mike Tyson.)  Started with 10 Mike Tyson Merkins, Bear Crawl across one part of parking lot for 1 Iron Mike and Mosey back to do 9 Mike Tyson Merkins, Bear Crawl across for 2 Iron Mikes, etc.  55 Merkins, total Merkin count at 175.

Partner work – PAX 1 Moseys about 25 yards and does 5 Merkins while PAX 2 does LBCs.  Partners switch.  This is repeated 5 times.  25 Merkins, total Merkin count at 200.

With 1 minute left we circle up to perform a Plank Pyramid (because I don’t know what else to call it).  Get in plank position and back up, next time get in plank position and bring feet to hands twice before standing up, continue up to 7.


Countorama – 11.
