A lucky 13 of us made our way to the parking garage this morning.  The PAX knew right away we had a little extra morning when we turned left out of the parking lot… fortunately no one turned around.

The Thang:

Mosey to PF Chang’s parking lot for warm-up:

  • SSH X 25
  • IW X 20
  • Merkins X 15
  • Mountain Climbers X 20

Run to bottom of parking deck, 20 merkins and 20 Peter Parkers

Form a line across a straightaway

  • Lunge halfway, sprint to the end, jog back
  • Bear crawl halfway, sprint to the end, jog back
  • Broad jump halfway, sprint to the end, jog back
  • Lunge halfway, sprint to the end, jog back

Mosey up one level for Mary

  • Dolly X 20
  • LBCs X 20
  • Flutter X 20
  • Freddie Mercury X 20

Mosey up a level and partner up

P1 = People’s Chair, P2 runs to bottom of the deck and back.  Flapjack and repeat once.

Set of merkins before leaving the garage and head home.  Six inches and protractor until all make it back.


Good job everyone who came out.  Nobody likes the running and the leg work but we need it!  Happy as always to lead and appreciate the support of the group.


10 men showed up Monday morning, kettlebells in tow, to erase their weekends and get the week started off right!

The Thang:

Mosey down to lower parking lot for:

SSH X 25, Backward lunge X 12, Merkin X 20, Forward Lunge X 12, Peter Parker X 20

Head to the turf for “Catch me if you can”: P1 runs with bells, P2 = 5 merkins and chase.  Flapjack and continue for 1 lap around.

Circle Up at midfield

25 two-handed KB swings, 20 merkins, 15 squat and press, 20 merkins – alternate right hand/left hand on the bell, 25 two handed swings, KB rows – 15 each side, KB woodchops – 10 each side, 20 merkins

Mosey to the playground: P1 25 KB deadlifts, P2 pull-up (as many as you can) and burpees (until P1 finishes deadlifts).  Flapjack and repeat 3X.

Back to the field: Alternate sprints and Mary

Dolly X 25, sprint down and back; Flutter X 25, sprint down and back; LBC X 25, sprint down and back, Protracor (Mighty Might calls out the degrees), sprint down and back

Bear crawls and lunge walks to the halfway line and back.

Mosey back to parking lot and finish with planks, alternating elbows and regular.


Cheers to the many PAX who completed the workout despite long weekends at the sportsbar!

Reminder to everyone to check out the Joe Davis Run, scheduled for Jan 4, 2014.  Registration is discounted at $20 until end of October.
