Partners make it…fun?

With the watch saying 5:30 and with just enough humidity in the air and a disclaimer announced, YHC decided to change it up and jump right into it in the parking lot.

  • Wide Arm Merkin x15
  • LBC x20
  • Diamond Merkin x15
  • LBC x20
  • Merkin x15
  • LBC x20

“Warm Up” jog to lower parking lot, around the islands, and head back up towards parking lot (mix in a little backwards running). Keep running around playground towards back of school past the stumps and all the way back by the dumpsters.

  • SSH x20
  • IW x20
  • Mountain Climber x20 (Hold the plank to explain exercise)

Partner up.  Partner 1 runs to stumps – 10 jump ups and back to starting point to get into plank.  Meanwhile Partner 2 runs to playground – 10 pullups and back to starting point to get into plank.  Each partner does 10 Derkins off partner’s back.  Partner 1 runs to playground (pullups) while Partner 2 runs to stumps (jump ups) and back for 10 more Derkins each.  This is 1 round.  Rinse and Repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 rounds.

Mosey (short walk) around the corner to the wall.

Round 1: Partners do a combined total of 50 burpees.  While Partner 1 is doing burpees, Partner 2 is doing people’s chair. Switch as needed until all burpees are completed.

Round 2: Partners do a combined total of 100 jump squats.  While Partner 1 is doing jump squats, Partner 2 is doing a wall plank (feet on the wall).  Switch as needed until all jump squats are completed.

Mosey back to launch point to wrap it up.

  • Flutters x20
  • Merkins x20 (single count OYO)



This was (to me) a quick 45 minutes.  The PAX worked incredibly hard and there was not much time for standing around – everyone just kept moving.   I may have thrown everyone off with my starting off with the Merkins/LBCs in the parking lot before running, although I think Floor Slapper appreciated not having to search for us as he pulled in during the first set of Merkins.  Minimal mumblechatter even though YHC did screw up the cadence at one point and was not saying the proper words in the correct order at first.

The mumblechatter did begin to increase throughout the first main exercise with all of the running/jumping/pulling up/derkining.  I’m pretty sure I got a “You Suck” from O’Tannenbaum as he passed me.  Heard a few groans and witnessed some eye rolls with announced 50 burpees followed by the 100 jump squats.  I was actually planning a 3rd round with 150 merkins while the other partner did LBCs. Just ran out of time.  Next time….

All in all, great work out there this morning and a strong showing by all. Thanks to O’Tannenbaum for taking us out.


  • Alf is on Q next week at The Matrix to mark his 1 year of F3.  Get ready for something extra special.
  • The Matrix is in need of Q’s.  There are some empty slots in the coming weeks.  Reach out to Alf or Uncle Leo if interested.
