Merkin Mayhem

Merkin Mayhem

14 Sons of Ballantyne attacked the day with a gentle combo featuring merkins and abs.

The Thang:

Warm up

Personal record Merkin Day (as many as you can do).  Got to around 30 or so on the F3 count.  25 Side Straddle Hops.  25 mountain climbers.  10 more merkins for good measure.

Mosey to lake wall.

25 seated crunch, 10 slow decline Merkins, 10 slow dips.  Lap around lake.  Repeato.

Mosey to second lake.

Merkin/Mary combo.  2 merkins, 15 flutter, 4 merkins, 15 dolly, 6 merkins, 15 rosalita, 8 merkins, 15 mason twist, 10 merkins, 15 heels to heavens, 8 merkins, 15 wide legged sit-ups, 6 merkins, 15 left side raises, 4 merkins, 15 right side raises, 2 merkins, protractor with Freeleys Comet.

Mosey past 3rd lake to parking lot.

Sprint relay: two teams 50 meter sprint and back while rest of team does squats.

Mosey back to Vine parking lot.

10 burpees in your own time.



– Not much chatter from the PAX today.  Everyone focussed on the task at hand.

– 30 count merkins is not bad, but there is no reason we can’t get to 50….

– Mighty Mike burned a hole in the parking lot with his turn of speed during the relay.

– Next week Puppy Love takes the helm for the first time.

Sons of Ballantyne = SOB? Sounds about right.

There was nothing gentle about that beatdown. We are going to be some ripped SOB if Haggis has his way.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
