Merkin Around the Clock

  • QIC: Feud
  • The PAX: Crotchless, Sasquatch, Drumstick, Feud

4 HIM of Fleming Island went searching for a good spot for a Thursday beatdown.  While Moccasin Slough was a decent park, but it was a little too dark for the Pax’s liking.  The search brought the group back to our Saturday AO of Thunderbolt Park.  Maybe they were hoping YHC would take it easy on them if he were able to see a little better… nice try

The Thang

Wanting to continue to share the joy experienced during the lockdowns, YHC brought yet another F3 Social Distancing beatdown that resembled a pyramid scheme. For each round, pax adds the exercise(s) of all preceding rounds.  Oh, and to help us prepare for our run at IPC Week 0, we ran a short lap (0.1 miles per Sasquatch’s GPS) between each round.

AMRAP:

  • Round 1- Bobby Hurley’s x8
  • Round 2- add Merkin Clock x10
  • Round 3- add Cruchy Frogs x15
  • Round 4- add Carolina Dry Docks x20
  • Round 5- add American Hammers x25
  • Round 6- add Lunges x30 (count 1 leg)
  • Round 7- add LBCs x35
  • Round 8- add Squats x60
  • Round 9- add Mt Climbers x45
  • Round 10- add BBSU x5

BOM/COT

Running the lap prevented us from completing all rounds, but pax did very well.  Drumstick and Sasquatch reached Round 8, while Crotchless and YHC made it to Round 9.  After all was said and done, all wished that the Merkin Clock was digital.
