Welcome to May the Fourth be with You!


Today Seven PAX showed up to train and see whether they are best suited as a Jedi or are they more of a Storm trooper

Warm up

  • 10 X-Wings (SSH)
  • 10 LBAC Forward
  • 10 LBAC Backward
  • 10 Imperial Walkers


Here is the thang:

 Headed to Dagobah

First 4 rounds will test your connection to the force

  • Carry Yoda (Ruck it) down the road (200M).
  • 10 Merkins
  • Carry Yoda(Ruck it) back to the base camp (200M).
  • Show your connection to the force by balancing (Handstand) against the wall for 1 minute
  • Lift your body into the air with grace by doing 5 pullups.
  • Balance rocks in the air with 10 overhead press
  • Repeat.  Last Lap was with our newly earned lightsabers (foam pool noodles) and beatings began.


Off to the Empire’s training area

Now to show your stamina as a stormtrooper 2 rounds (not hard to be come a trooper).

  • 10 Merkins
  • 1 lap jog with partner (150M)
  • 10 BBSU
  • 1 lap jog with partner (150M)
  • Target practice with Nerf Blasters
  • 10 Dips
  • Repeat


Giving “grown” PAX nerf blasters to run and train with was a great idea.  Try it some time.

Being a Jedi requires hard work and continual training to help keep us strong and focused.  Letting go of your focus makes it easy to go down the path to the Dark Side.  We found that being a trooper was a lot easier than training as a Jedi.  Hanging out with a partner made the job easier (even if most of it was spent shooting each other and the rest of the PAX) and makes for Sad Clowns.
