13 men slid out of the fartsack and came out into the gloom for a workout on the frozen tundra of Calvary Church. YHC has had a brutal work at week, so I had to go to the workout archives…but what it lacks in creativity it makes up for in difficulty.
10 burpees OYO
Jog to courtyard area on side of church with the fancy turf.
Jog to parking lot
Merkin Suicides (5 cones)
Run to first cone and back/do 2x exercise
Run to second cone and back / do 4x exercise, etc.

Jog to pavilion
Jog to shovel flag for some Mary
The tights were out in full force today as the temperatures dropped into the high 20s. Only YHC and Mermaid (I think) toughed out the cold with bare legs…although I wished I had the pants when kneeling on the frozen tundra for the Jack Webbs #kneelock.
The pax were pleased with the return of merkinfest today. I enjoy workouts that target specific areas, and this one definitely fits the bill. I expect all of us to have some sore shoulders for the rest of the day and tomorrow. The merkin suicides are more of a crowd pleaser than I remember from the first time, and I was beginning to wonder how I managed to finish this part of the workout the first go-round. One way is to follow Zip’s approach – “if you ain’t cheatin’ you ain’t tryin’!” The 8-count body builder merkins are particularly tough…seems like you’ll never finish.
There was a fair bit of chatter from the pax today, and I expect nothing less than that when Zip is involved. A few comments during the peoples chair…YHC took a little Jane Fonda and leg warmer ribbing from the group, but I think I got the point across. All in good fun.
Great work out there today guys. As always it was a pleasure leading!
