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:
Side Stradle Hops
Mosey to turf
Little Baby Arm Circles
Mosey up Gloom Mountain to the grass at the top
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.
Sprint down to the crosswalk and then do 30 LBC’s
Sprint back and do 20 Merkins
Wash, rinse, repeat 3 times.
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!
