Football, Golf….and Merkins?

  • When: 06/02/18
  • QIC: Camo
  • The PAX: KFC, Carburetor, Tomahawk, Headlock, Popeye

A 6-pack of PAX posted at The Kingdom to take their DRP.  Other brothers were supporting the Kingwood launch, supporting some DR trips, or supporting a bad #FartSack Habit.

Condition

Warm and Wet.  77 degrees, high humidity, low oxygen.

Disclaimer

Push but don’t hurt.  Modify.  Hydrate.  Check your brothers.  Phone is in Camo’s unlocked truck.

The Thang

Begin with a nice 1/4 mile Indian Run to the far side of the church.

CoP:

  • Abe Vigoda (Brisket Style) x 10 IC
  • Arm-o-Rama: F, R, Seal Claps, Michael Phelps all x 20 IC
  • Grass Grabber x 10 IC
  • Hill Billy Walker x 15 IC

Mosey around the corner and grab some curb for Around the World Merkins:

  • Incline Merkins x 10 IC, rotate
  • Left Arm High Merkins x 10 IC, rotate
  • Decline Merkins x 10 IC, rotate
  • Right Arm High Merkins x 10 IC, Recover!

Quick set of:

  • Crucible Merkins x 20 CC

Mosey to Breezeway:

  • Angry Chair x 25 IC
  • Ranger Merkins x 20 CC

Quick Hydro stop at the trucks.  Summer is here: Hydrate!

Mosey to the park, with a quick circle up around a bench for:

  • Incline Merkins x 15 CC

And now, introducing a brand new (and questionable) concept: Football Golf.  Here’s how it goes down:  A PAX takes the football, and chunks it in the direction and distance of his choosing.  The PAX then runs to the ball, and the thrower Q’s an exercise of his choice.  After, the next PAX repeats, until all PAX have run through.  A little Q-school, a little variety pack.

  • Camo: Merkins x 20 CC
  • Popeye: Decline Merkins x 15 CC
  • Carburetor: (Chunks it to the sand box):  Crab Walk across, Bear Crawl across.  Many moans and groans.  Nice and sandy now, to go with the wet!
  • Tomahawk:  (Chunks it to the benches): Dips x 20
  • KFC: Spider Merkins x 10 CC
  • Headlock: Lunges x 20 Each Leg

Rinse and Repeat!

  • Camo: CDD x 15 IC
  • Popeye: ?? (Can’t recall)
  • Carburetor: Sprint to the call, Squats x 20 CC
  • Tomahawk: 1-min low plank (a minute is a loonnngg time)
  • KFC: Mountain Climbers x 25 IC
  • Headlock: Burpees x 10 OYO

Nice!  Now, one final long throw by YHC for…

  • Burpee-Merkin-Broadjump.  2 Burpees, 5 Merkins, Broadjump.  Repeat until we make it to the ball.  Crowd Pleaser!

At this point Mumble Chatter was completely non-existing.  Quick stop at the hose bib for a little Hydro, then back to the benches for:

  • Incline Merkins x 15 CC

And finally, stroll to the swings for:

  • Swerkins x 12 OYO  (Hello Midwife Noises!)

Mosey back to the flags for some cool-down stretching.

Total of 270 Merkins per PAX, for a WO total of 1,620.  T’claps guys!  YHC and Popeye also knocked out 150 EC pre-WO.
