    Mosey around the pond and to the tennis courts.

    The Thang

    PAX line up on the line with arms stretched and finger to finger. Side Straddle Hop in Cadence and first PAX runs to the other end, then next Pax follows and so on until you make your way around the court. Next was Big Boy Situps and Bear Crawl transitions and finally Squats with Lunges.

    Now that we had worked lower body, it was time for upper body. Mosey around the pond stopping at each swing to do a variation of Merkin (IC).

    • M.erkin – 15
    • U.nderhand Merkin – 10
    • S.taggered Merkin – 7 each way
    • K.nerkins – 15
    • E.xplosive Merkin – 10
    • T.ravolta Merkin – 7 each way

    Back to the Flag for modified Mary. One person calls out an exercise for everyone else to do AMRAP while the PAX does 50 Over Head Press:

    • LBCs
    • Mountain Climbers
    • Planks
    • Flutter Kicks
    • WWIIs
    • SSH
    • Burpees (Marvel called these with an evil smile on his face)
    • American Hammers


    A tranquil heart is life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

    Proverbs 14:30


    • Everyone was so miserable doing the merkins I don’t think they realized that we were spelling Musket with the merkins.
