Blinking Interuption

Sixteen men gathered in the gloom to fulfill their mid-week downpainment.  Many of the regular chatter-boxes were absent, so it was eerily quiet before the start.

Take a lap around the parking lot while mixing in high knees an butt kickers.  The best part was announcing the disclaimer as we ran backwards dodging potholes.  #Qfail


  • Disclaimer – part 2 (the FNG’s look really worried now)
  • SSH x 20
  • IW x 20
  • Merkins x 20
  • Plank walk  (R)
  • Merkins x 15
  • Plank walk (L)
  • Merkins x 15
  • IW x 20
  • SSH x 20

Mosey over to the front parking lot.

Triple Nickel:

  • Run to other end of parking lot
  • Staggered arm merkins on curb (R) x 5
  • Run back to starting point
  • CDD x 5
  • Repeat 5 times

I like balance, so rinse and repeat with left hand on curb for the merkins.

Find a piece of wall

  • People’s chair
  • Wall plank
  • Rinse and repeat
  • Wall mountain climbers

Jog to the football field for partner work:

  • Partner shoulder presses x 15 / Flapjacks
  • Partner wheelbarrel / Flapjacks half-way
  • Partner Derkins x 15 / Flapjacks


  • 20 merkins in middle, core exercises in the corners
  • HTH x 20
  • Dolly x 20
  • LBC x 20
  • Freddie Mercury x 20


  • Yes, I admit the plank walks and merkins with no rest was cruel and unsavory on the shoulders.
  • After round 1 of the triple nickel, Slimfast was worried that his left pectoral region would feel neglected.  Problem solved with round 2.
  • At some point during the triple nickel, our workout was interupted by a group of blinking lights…BRR guys performing a final gear check before Friday’s launch.  They took 1 lap thru the parking lot but not one of them stapped for a single merkin.  #Rude
  • Thanks for bearing with me as I crafted a workout conducive to BRR tapering
  • Welcome to our FNG’s, Venus and Dig Dug.  Nice work this morning.
  • T-claps to Venus.  Dude moves to Charlotte yesterday and makes his first post today.
  • Thank you Sussudio for our closing prayer.


  • Check the weekly email and twitter for info on workout convergences Friday and Saturday.
  • Good luck to all the BRR guys this weekend.
  • Scratch-n-Win and his wife are leading a small group for couples struggling with marriage.  See him if interested.
