Death March, Death Crawl

4 brave pax met in the cool (but thankfully relatively dry) April gloom. No weights needed for this Ironman workout, nor would there be any running. Just a body weight beatdown. 

Warmup – SSH, imperial walkers, weed pickers, ranger merkins

We started with the hardest thing. The Death March – 1 lunge to 4 squat ratio, laddering to 10 lunges and 40 squats. This sucked. Uptown did the math – 220 squats and 55 lunges in total. 

Hold plank while everyone in turn does 10 merkins, then go around again while everyone does another 5

20 IC SSH, 20 Dips, 20 crunchy frogs

Hold six inches while everyone in turn does 10 flutter kicks (2 count), then go around again while everyone does another 5.

Hold people’s chair while everyone in turn does 10 squats, then go around again while everyone does another 5

Death crawl – 1 to 1 ratio of bear crawls to merkins, laddering to 10 crawls forward and 10 merkins.  Ends up being 55 merkins and 55 bear crawls.  This also sucked. 

Ab circle – I led heel touches (15 4-count IC), fidget spinner led outlaws (20), blackberry led gymnast crunches (10 4-count IC), and uptown led pickle pounders (10? 4-count IC).

Merkin circle – I led 15 arm release merkins, fidget spinner had 15 regular merkins, blackberry had 15 face forward dry docks, and uptown had 7 and 7 mismatched merkins, each side.

COT – fidget’s meetings with potential clients, Bundy’s house

Naked Man Moleskin:

Appreciate those that resolved to come out rain or shine. For those that may not realize it, our F3 forefathers wisely chose AO’s that all have some kind of covering should it start pouring.

Fidget spinner had a good story of God’s provision in a time of uncertainty for his family.  He was feeling a little regret about not taking a big family vacation over spring break (as he has in years past) in order to preserve funds as he continues to get his business off the ground. So he instead decides to take his family out for a good meal to celebrate spring break together.  He tells everyone to order what they want but to put up their phones – no devices at the table. So the waiter comes up with a pretty hefty check, but then tells them that someone saw his family eating together without anyone staring at their phone and picked up the tab. A solid reminder that God is faithful. And to put up your phones when spending time with your family.
