Just a roll of the dice

  • The PAX: Synapse - DR, Xenu - R, Boucher - R

As YHC was waiting, I wasn’t sure if there would be any PAX show, with the launch of Asguard. Then 1 by 1 by 1 the PAX showed.  4 total PAX including YHC.


  • Michael Phelps
  • Tempo Squats
  • Moroccan Nightclubs – Synpase wondered about the origin of the name
  • Bent elbow Moroccan Nightclubs – looks more like ‘Jazz hands’
  • Don Quixote – for some reason Xenu was doing Reachers but looked like he was going through the motions, YHC commented about everyones form from a prior workout for Reachers.


The Thang:

Form a circle, YHC included.  2 PAX were handed one dice each. The yellow represented an exercise and count.

  • 1 burpee
  • 2 T-Merkins’
  • 3 Monkey Humpers
  • 4 Merkins
  • 5 Squats
  • 6 LBCs

The pink dice was a mulitplier. A few round of this ensued.  Surprisingly no T-merkins were done.

Line up at the lamp post. We needed to get to the other lampost.

1 pink dice, 3 yellow dice.  Roll the yellow dice, add them up, that it the number of bear crawl paces to complete. The number on the pink told us how many burpees to do.  Sometimes we rolled pink first, to see what were heading towards..sometimes we rolled the pink after bear crawls to build anticipation.

Well, we had to come back. Same idea but yellow was number of lunges (count on left leg), pink was squats.  Synapse seemed to be completed the lunges much quicker, we found out, he was counting 1,2,3,4 not 1,1,2,2,etc..

Circled up again – YHC asked Xenu to pick an exercise – Reachers (go figure). Then roll the dice, a 5 and a 3. I directed 53 Reacher.  The PAX complained, much mumblechatter about time to complete..after many reachers and lost counts, we stopped. Boucher was asked – first (thinking about what we just did), merkins…he rolled a 4 and 6 I believe.  We did 10, much to the delight of the PAX. Finally, Synapse rolled first, I don’t recall but thinking I’d just add them, chose monkey humper. Nope! We did quite a bit.

Finally, it was Dora time. But not any ordinary Dora which is 1,2,3.  I had each PAX roll a dice one a time. Synapse rolled a 5, Boucher a 4…pressure was on Xenu. 6.  That’s right a Dora 4,5,6!

Pair up – exercise while partner goes to cone and back.

  • 400 Monkey Humpers
  • 500 Raise the roof
  • 600 LBC.


Naked Moleskin:

During this time, there are people complaining about wearing masks and personal freedoms. Whatever you want to do or don’t do is your choice. And most stores requires a mask now, and I have seen in the news were people take it out on the workers, sometimes younger people.  All they are doing is their job.  Just be kind.  We’ll get through this.  It’s tough for many people, work, financial, child care wise.  Recall the Golden Rule.

Prayers for Synapse and career, prayers for new launch at Asguard.

Until next time!
