Merkins, Merkins, and yes more Merkins (with some other stuff mixed in too).

June 27, 2018

Bright and early in the Gloom the men of Gloom Mountain gathered to knock out a few merkins and some other stuff too. We started out in the parking lot and 14 brave souls did the following:

Merkins (48)

Side Stradle Hops

Merkins (22)

Willie Mays

Mosey to turf

Merkins (20)

Little Baby Arm Circles

Merkins (10)


Mosey up Gloom Mountain to the grass at the top

Merkins (15)


Mosey to the other parking lot

Here YHC had the men count off 1’s and 2’s. 1’s lined up for sprints while 2’s circled up for some in-cadence exercise.

Sprints (1’s)

Sprint down to the crosswalk and then do 30 LBC’s

Sprint back and do 20 Merkins

Wash, rinse, repeat 3 times.

Circle (2’s)

20 LBC’s

20 Merkins

20 Squats

After that 1’s and 2’s switched. 20 seconds of encouragement and then it was a mosey to the BB court.

5 negative merkins (8 secound count down, then up equals 1)

10 regular merkins

Mosey to the far corner of the track

Bear Crawls. At each corner PAX did:

1st corner – 20 LBC’s

2nd corner – 20 Merkins

3rd corner – 20 Flutter Kicks

Then PAX completed a 1 lap mosey. Some more encouragement and then it was a mosey back to the parking lot.

Benches – Dips (20 with a long hold at the end).

After that Tinactin stepped in to lead the PAX in one of his patent-pending cooldown stretches. YHC can’t remember the whole sequence, but it is highly recommended for a great start to the day!

2 x FNG’s participated (Welcome Bailout and Norad) and 12 long-time PAX. Great work and a pat on the back to all!
