Muggy Merkin Marathon

14 PAX met near the water tower for an extremely simple beat down.  Keeping the running to a minimum, the complaining was still evident but good natured.

Warm-up near the Tack Exchange – Disclaimer and Introduction with apology to those who attended Doc’s Jack Webb beating. 

  • 20 SSH IC
  • 20 Potato Pickers IC
  • 20 Imperial Walkers IC
  • 20 Moroccan Night Clubs IC

The Thang:

  • Hit the next Block as we mosey to the school.
  • 5 T Merkins at Each Mailbox to get the blood flowing
  • Up to the Basketball courts near the school to Partner up.


Combine with your Partner – 100 Crab Cakes, 200 Scorpion Dry Docks, 300 LBCs, 400 Plank Jacks and 500 Merkins – while partner runs to other end of the court to complete 10 Squats

  •  Final Mosey to the start to wrap up, with Flutter pit stops.


 A very impressive and hard working group all around even as the Merkins got very sloppy towards the end with many teams not quite hitting the 500 but getting very close.  Several rounds of exercises were done til failure, and the partner was there to pick them up and switch off.

Shout out Doughboy, Maple Syrup, Rubbermaid and Big10 who endured the day after experiencing Doc’s own Jack Webb Hell yesterday.  But all of them still powered through with all they had.

My partner Shake ‘n’ Bake was the man as no Form police will ever catch him not up to snuff cranking out each exercise precisely.

Beckham, Paper Jam, Dana, and Fuse (towel in hand) put it all out there with minimal complaints and just a few jabs.   Nice job powering though.

Anvil, extremely impressed with Iron and Ore.  Nice job, always good to see the 2.0s participating while Ore was running around most of us like we were standing still

Banjo – Nice to meet you sir and good job enduring a tough workout.  Thank you for making Floater your first official workout as we look forward to seeing you again.

Lastly, absolute favorite part was in the middle of squats when Rubbermaid stopped, turned to me and told me that I suck.   At the moment, I agreed with him.


  • FNG Ben Carson – previously from the Mountains of WV, likes beer.  He is a Dude.  Accepted the name Banjo.  Hopefully he returns.
  • Sandlot Pallet project with Shop Dog – please connect with him if you are interested.
  • COTS (Church on the Streets) Sign Up happening. Please look on GroupMe.

Wrap up and Prayer:

 Doughboy took us out with a special mention of Austin (18-year-old, who recently suffered a heart attack) who needs our prayers.  Thank you, Anvil, for bringing this to our attention.

HOOCH-Aerobics – Beach Body Core Day


HOOCH-Aerobics – Beach Body Core Day

22 PAX did a Core focused workout all over Cuthbertson campus with some moaning and groaning. Thank you for letting me lead what felt like a muggy, sweaty, and sloppy workout. Maybe next time, I will have it a little more crisp and concise. None the less, all would agree that is sucked as it was supposed to with some new twists thrown in.

Warm-up – Disclaimer and Introduction.

  • 20 SSH
  • 20 Potato Pickers
  • 20 Imperial Walkers
  • 20 Merkins (stud count)

The Thang:

Off to the Light poles – 10 Plank Rotations + 10 Core Twists at each – front to come get the 6.

Hit the Wall at Transporter’s office for something that was harder than expected – 10 Wall Plank Jacks + 10 Wall Plank Hip Touches x 4 (QFail, so actually x2)

Grab a rock and circle up – 20 Thrusters, 20 Kettle Rock Swings, 20 Rock Goblet Squats, then 10, then 5, sitting the rock down each time and moving to the left. (Fun for all) Nice Job #Crumbs on keeping up.

Mosey to Circle near track for some Partner work – Starting with Partner Dragonflys x 25 then alternate. Heard some mumble about sweat dripping from PAX packages. @Damascus – sorry you missed it.

Then some Apollo 13s (thank you Posse for the name ) with Partner Runs 1/2 Speed to the bottom, Sling shot around the curve with a Sprint back to the top times 5. Partner was to do continuous Scorpion Plank Push Ups from the Curb (or until your body gave out).

Final Mosey to the start to wrap up, almost right on time. Quick Mary to finish.


Again, it was hot, extremely muggy, schwetty, but a wet grass and burpee free workout. I am impressed how everyone powered through and truly appreciate everyone trying something a littlenew and accepting it.

Everyone showed up and worked hard, so it is hard to mention names. A special shout out to my partner Foundation for not dripping from any unmentionable areas on my face, but I did chooseto keep my eyes closed just in case for the whole series. I am a little worried that the Dank Dragonflys were other PAXs favorite part.

Big10 is coming into his own and just killing it now, curse words to a minimum.

Huge Respect to our older PAX for making it look easy and to our 2.0 Crumbs for not struggling a bit.
