I’m suuuperrrr, thanks for asking

It was a brisk but comfortable morning. 19 brosefs escaped the fartsack for what was sure to be a smoker…at least as hoped by the Q.  Here’s what went down…

The Thang

Quick disclaimer given as no FNGs…let’s mosey….butt kickers, high knees…enough of that…circle up.

Playground circuit – 3 rounds

  • 20 CDD (60 total)
  • 30 Russian Twists (90 total)

alrighty, now we got to get back, but before we go…4 super burpees OYO

  • 1 mile fast mosey back (but not as fast as first as Q and pax getting gased…except for Bushwood, Lobsta Roll and Mermaid who were Larry Birds)
  • stop halfway for 10 burpees OYO

Sweatbox set

  • 20 jump-ups
  • 20 squats with toes to wall or better yet heels as toes are basically impossible…Q fail
  • 25 jump-ups


  • Flutter x 20 IC …hold
  • Dolly x 20 IC
  • LBC x 20 IC
  • 1 more super burpee to close it out!!



  • Truely solid work by all pax today. I was smoked and everyone kept up and put in a strong effort.
  • Some good mumblechatter going on today:
    • Hannibal reminded Q half-way into merkinfest that the AO is quite large (obvious call to audible…no such luck…but great try)
    • Stone Cold at the playground, “oohhh shiny….” and proceeds to put his tongue on the metal playset support
    • Every super burpee call was met with abudance of groans and grumbles. Man-up!
  • Nice having the muscle-bound trio of Chanel, Brown and Stone Cold join us. Pay it back gentlemen by going to Skunkworks and Meathead.  Great to mix in some iron with the cardio.
  • Strong Larry Bird efforts on the running from Lobsta Roll, Bushwood, and Mermaid
  • Flutie Flakes posting in shorts and short sleeves…get some!
  • Lots of “that sucked” for the Q afterwards so mission accomplished. YL says he’ll be hearing “4 super burpeess OYO” in his head the rest of the day.
  • Totals: 235 Merkins (counting CDD and super burp merkins), 61 Burpees, 30 pull-ups, 45 jump-ups, and 2.2 miles with strong pace

Thanks for the great takeout YL.  This time of the year it is important to focus on all the blessings we have, and to pass on our abundance to those in need both locally and globally.  God is great!

Yes, Brushback, that was awful. But one of those awful feelings that actually feels good later. So, I’m still waiting on the “later,” but I know it’s coming. 🙂

I knew I was in trouble when I looked at Flutie about seven minutes in and told him my shoulders were already smoked. I’m going to be huge.

Brushback!! Super burpees?!! C’mon now! Those super sucked! Much easier to drink a beer with you than run 2.2 with you, that’s fo sho! Much needed running this morning. Great job splitting up the 2.2. Kept this meathead within respectable distance. Thanks YL for sharing the caboose with me on the way back. Great Q! I shall return!
