Partial Lunar Eclipse @ Gloom Mountain

We witnessed some pretty cools stuff this morning at Gloom Mountain.  We saw a partial lunar eclipse from the heights of Simmons Middle School.  It was really cool and all – we were only able to enjoy it though on a couple of 10 counts during breaks from suicide runs, squerkins, burp & merks, and the like….


Side straddle hops x25

21s (21 side straddle hops in cadence where the Q four counts out loud for the first five reps, then the remaining reps up to 21 are done in cadence while all PAX silent count) We stayed in cadence but the FNG (Ginger) kept on trucking after 21.  So we all payed the penalty of 21 burpees

Ray Lewis x25

Little baby arm circles x30

Imperial squat walkers x25

The Thang:

Mosey up to Simmons Middle School for some fun:

Partnered up and completed an uphill dora with 50 reps of 4x4s (A 4×4 is when you burpee down to plank, followed by four merkins, four mountain climbers, then burpee pack to standing position for one rep)

Mosey up to top parking lot:

Suicide run

Flutter kicks x30

Suicide run

American hammers x25

Suicide run

Box cutters x25

Suicide run

Circled up and partnered up for:

Squerkins x100 (hold your partners legs while one partner is standing and the other is in decline merkin position – one rep is completed when the down partner does one merkin and the standing partner does one squat)

Burp & merk (burpee down to plank and do one merkin, burpee back to standing position, burpee back down to plank and do two merkins, bupee back to standing position and so on and so on up to nine merkins)

Mosey back to Gwin Elementary
