Pyramid at #TheMeadows

8 PAX showed up at The Brave and did things that The Brave PAX do.

Spoiler Alert: Workout totals- ~4 miles, 50 burpees, 100 pull-ups, 200 merkins and 300 LBCs.

Mosey down Conlan Circle past Starbucks to Ballantyne Commons Pkwy.  Head West up Ben Nevis, stopping at each of 6 streets/entrances for 3 burpees.  Turn around at Ballantyne Meadows Dr and go back for the 6.

Right on Ballantyne Meadows Dr.  Stop at each street/entrance for 3 burpees.  Turn around at Valley Spring Dr and go back for the 6.

Right on Valley Spring Dr, Left on Dovehunt Pl, to end of cul-de-sac, stopping at each street for 3 burpees.  Turn around and go back for the 6.  Mosey to playground attached to cul-de-sac.


Perform a pyramid of pull-ups, merkins and LBCs at the playground.  Start with 1 pull-up, 2 merkins and 3 LBCs (each leg). Then 2, 4 and 6.  Then 3, 6 and 9.  And so on, all the way up to 10, 20 and 30.  Then work your way back down to 1, 2 and 3.  Pull ups at the monkey bars, merkins and LBC’s next to the pull-up bars.  Run a lap around the perimeter of the playground after each round.

Mary after finishing led by Mario/Tuck.

Indian run back to Vine at 6:01.  8 burpees at the Vine to round it off.


  • YHC had this workout planned 6 months ago but then got injured.  It feels good to finally get this one in the books.
  • Mario put in a strong effort while dealing w/ some leg issues.  Rest up, Mario.  Hope you find those muscle relaxers.
  • YHC was taught to slow down when you get to the front of the line in an Indian Run.  Cheddar must have learned differently.  This made for quite a brisk pace back to launch.  Thanks for pushing us, Cheddar.
  • Thin Mint is not at 100% and is still dominating.  Whatever.  He and Rachel led the way on the mosey to the playground and on the pyramid.
  • Cheddar did not feel the need to take down Mr. Bean this morning, which we all appreciated.  Especially Mr. Bean.
  • A typical strong “The Brave” effort by all this morning.  The Brave is my favorite workout due to the ability of the PAX to range further from launch and try stupider and more pointless exercises than usual.  YHC will never forget how hard The Brave was when YHC first started attending last year.  The fact that YHC can keep up now and even lead is truly meaningful.  If you want to get better, surround yourself with better men. #ISI
  • Thanks for taking us out, Mario
  • As always, it was an honor to lead.  Thanks to Fire Haz, MT and Mario for the opportunity.

Very creative Tuck. I only got thru 60% of that dreaded pyramid. Good solid beatdown
