21 Pax joined for a humid dice-based beatdown.  Ashy Larry was a Chappelle Show character and integral participant in “The World Series of Dice” on the show. This was a dice-based workout, hence the barely tangential reference to Larry.


WARM-O-RAMA: Imperial Walkers IC x 10, Carrot Pickers IC x 10, mosey to knee wall for 20 Dips, 10 Box Jumps and Plank for the 6.


Mosey to Garber Ministry Center parking lot for the first half of dice games. First dice had 10/20/30/60/90, used for reps. The 2nd dice had exercises:  LBCs (Crunches), SSHs (Jumping jacks), Squats (Squats), Merkins (Pushups), Lunges (Walking Lunges), and a Wild Card- Roller’s choice.

At half-way, we took the long way to the Garber Parking lot (#2) where the 2nd half of Pax rolled some more.

We moseyed back to the knee wall for 20 Dips, 10 Box Jumps, Plank until the 6, then a 60-second plank.

NEED a Q for Friday at the Point. Reply all if you cover it.  Pyro burnin’ out!

Bear Crawl between cones. Exercises were:

  • Squats x25 SC

The End

Glad to see everyone there this morning. Thanks for working so hard alongside me and pushing each other. Thanks for letting me screw up demonstrations and forget key instructions, and for making fun of me for it but letting it be ok for me to fix it and move on.

As Ty Webb, played by Chevy Chase, once said, “the Zen philosopher, Basho, once wrote, ‘A flute with no holes is not a flute. A donut with no hole is a danish.’ He was a funny guy.”

The heat was back on this morning as 15 gathered together on the last morning of July.  We took a long lap then did:

SSH IC x 10, Cotton Pickers x 10 IC, Merkens x 20 SC, American Hammers x 20 IC, Windmills x 10 IC, Mountain Climbers x 10 IC.

We then got down to business with The Bearmuda Triangle:  there were 3 cones in a triangle, approximately 25 yards apart.  At the 1st Cone, 1 Burpee was done and Bear Crawl to 2nd, where 2 Burpees were done and Bear Crawl to 3rd, where 3 Burpees were done and Bear Crawl back to 1st cone.  This was rinsed and repeated x 2. We then took a short lap.

Thoroughly warm, we paired up and moved on to the meat of the workout:

Partner 1 ran backwards across parking lot, did a Bobby Hurley and ran forwards back, then did that again, while Partner 2 did an exercise.  Then partners flap jacked.  The exercises and total number of reps were:

Burpees- 100

Squats- 300

LBC’s- 150

Little Baby Arm Circles- 300

Merkens- 150

Imperial Walkers- 300

And that was all the time we had today.

Great work!  Thanks for coming out!

Ran it back to the first time I ever Q’d. The merkle workout is based on the superset and overload principals with a merkle, crawl, plank, crawl, merkle pattern. It alternates working the chest and back, while keeping the arms in constant tension. The copperhead/wave/dip combo at the end is a burnout for the already taxed muscle groups. Hope the PAX had fun.
