The Thang:

I finally did it.  I managed to get into the car and head to the AO without knowing I was on Q.  I checked twitter at the stoplight in front of the Village to see who would be bringing the pain today.  Much to my surprise, YHC was on Q.  Time check = 5:26am.  Sweet!  Arrived at the AO at 5:27 and began formulating the plan.

Warmed up with:

We partnered up for a DORA 200.  200 Merkins (man these burned!), 200 Squats, 200 LBCs.  All the Pax smoked these exercises and were ready for the next challenge.


Escalating 7s:

We lined up with 14 parking lot lines in front of us.  Exercises were performed at every other line, totaling 7 sets.  Sets were performed in an escalating fashion – 1 rep at 1st stop up to 7 reps at the 7th stop.  At the end of the line, we performed a traveling exercise to get to the other side of the lot, turned around, and came back with another set of escalating 7s.  Exercises were as follows:

  1. Burpees (#crowdpleaser) – 7s
  2. Lunge walk to other side
  3. Merkins – 7s
  4. Lunge walk to the other side
  5. Carolina Dry Docks – 7s
  6. Bearcrawl to the other side
  7. Carolina Dry Docks – 7s
  8. Crabwalk to the other side
  9. Hallelujah lap around the lot (arms in air – feel the shoulders burn)
  10. Jump squats – 7s
  11. Burpee broad jump to the other side (#near merlot for some)
  12. Merkins – 7s
  13. Mosey to the flag

Thunderstruck with hold 6 inches and flutter kicks was attempted.  About half way through, tech failure from my new apple watch cut the song off after 2 minutes.  I secretly think Boxcar was behind it, but I have no proof.  Nevertheless, we finished off with a round of 20 4 count flutter kicks.

Time was called


Count-o-rama = 13



  • Operation Sweet Tooth is in the planning stages.  YHC is in the process of contacting the hospital and assessing needs.
  • Turkey Trot

YHC prayed us out, remembering prayer requests, veterans, unspoken prayers, and absent Pax.


Always an honor to lead.  Appreciate all of the men who came out to push each other.  As always full effort was given by all.
