Merry Go Round Merkins: The attempt was a merkin where one goes down on a 5 count- holds at the bottom for a 5 count-pushes up on a 5 count… (fyi it is really hard to keep that count when actively involved in the push up) The merry go round part was after each push the Pax would move to the next mat to the right while still in Plank. Recovered to Limp member then 10 burpees with 20 mountain climbers at the bottom. (later audibled to 10) Recovery Stretches.

Message of the workout :

Tendency of workouts to do is to blow through them and going as fast as you can. Sometimes slowing it down can help build more strength. In life we tend to go through the motions on the small things. Sometimes the best thing to do is to slow down. You might be building strength you need later.

Lastly, Thank you men so much for the support. I am thankful to be apart of this brotherhood. You have made me stronger, hopefully I helped make you a little bit stronger.
