The Thang

The workout began with the PAX circling up in front of the monstrosity that blocked the near end zone (some would call it a soccer goal) and doing a round of BLIMPS. To finish a round of BLIMPS, you must do 5 Burpees, 10 Lunges (on each leg), 15 Imperial Walkers, 20 Merkins, 25 Plank Jacks, and 30 Squats. Side Note – The first letter of each exercise spells out BLIMPS.

After moseying (NOT RUNNING) to the opposite end zone and moving the other monstrosity away from the goal line, the PAX partnered up and completed Dora 1-2-3 using an aggregate counting system. One partner would complete exercises while the other ran to the 50 yard line and back, then swapped. Round 1 was 100 Merkins, Round 2 was 200 LBC’s, and Round 3 was 300 Squats.

After a quick time check, the PAX circled up for an abbreviated round of Super 21. A normal round of Super 21 includes 1 Merkin/ 1 LBC, 2 Merkins/ 2 LBC’s, 3 Merkins/ 3 LBC’s all the way up to 21 Merkins/ 21 LBC’s (a total of 231 Merkins/ 231 LBC’s) without stopping, but with the clock expiring, #Omaha was called and we only exercised to 10 Merkins/ 10 LBC’s. Several of the PAX expressed their disbelief that doing the full Super 21 was even possible.

Next was a quick mosey (AGAIN… NO RUNNING) to the ramp for another round of Godfather’s infamous Modified Zombie Walk. For those of you who’ve not had the pleasure of experiencing this beast, it’s a right leg lunge, a left leg lunge, and a squat for an extended distance. It’s fair to say that with the incline of the ramp’s four lengths, we covered between 60 and 70 yards for today’s MZW.

With six or nine minutes remaining according to some people’s watches, there was a short mosey to back to the parking lot for some MARY on the curbside. Anarchy broke out as the counting system crumbled mid exercise when one PAX who will remain unnamed *cough* BA *cough* started shouting out 69 and other silly numbers mid count. The exercises were Freddie Mercury, Scissor Kicks, and Flutter Kicks.

#TheStorm ended with a quick Name-o-Rama, a round of announcements, a challenge from JoBu, Bandit, and Godfather for the PAX to complete a #fivepack this week, and a prayer with Anthrax.
