Tax Season Birthday Beatdown

Tax Season Birthday Beatdown

15 (not 14) men gathered for some fun at Anvil.  This was my first Q at this AO, which was my FNG post almost two years ago.  Lorax and Mermaid brought me then so it was awesome that they were both there today. Not sure why it took me so long to Q here, but it was great to finally be able to be the architect of the workout over this expansive property.  Speaking of Lorax, it was his birthday today (38) so I knew I had to bring it.

Did a quick disclaimer and then a slow jog so Scabby could catch up as always.

The Thang

Ran to the abyss of parking spots


SSH x 15 IC

IW x 15 IC

Low-slow-squat x 15 IC

Mountain climber x 20 IC

Peter Parker x 20 IC

Moseyed over to one of the parking lot sections.  Short lunge walk from one side to the other, then 20 merkins, lunge walk back to the other side, 19 merkins, lunge walk back, 18 merkins… and so on until 1.

Headed over to the far parking lot and lined up at the end line for a massive suicide, which included 10 Carolina Dry Docks at each island, and 10 squats at the end line.

Ran to the rock pile and picked up a ¨lifting rock¨. Worked the following set:

20 curls

20 shoulder presses

20 tricep extensions

Run over to play ground

10 pull ups

10 burpees

Repeat 3 times

Circled up for Mary – 20 flutters while holding rock in air, 20 american hammers w/ rock, 20 heels to heaven, 20 dolly while holding rock in air, 20 freddie mercuries

Headed back to launch and closed us out in prayer.


I did not really anticipate the pain of the lunge walking to start the workout, but it set a good tone.  The PAX was strong as always and Rachel, Lorax, Purell, and Mermaid were front-runners as expected.  Tried to get a full-body bootcamp workout as beach season is not too far away.  Haze was a little uncomfortable that I stared him down for the entire COP, but I tried to avoid the rotating exercise thing this morning.  Sorry about that. Huge kudos for Lorax getting out to post.  Tax season is killing him right now, but he was a trooper to join the party even after just a few hours of sleep.  It was a great honor to lead and look forward to my next Q at Anvil.
