12 men made it to The Fighting Yank including my 2.0 and 1 FNG. After a short warm up of SSH, merkins and Don Qs, we grabbed a couple of bricks each and set out for a mosey around Belmont.

The tour began at Nellies where we did 20 CDDs, 20 brick military press, and 20 CDDs.

Next stop was the popcorn shop where we did 20 werkins, 20 brick flys and 20 werkins.

Mosey to the intersection by McDonalds, 20 MNCs, 20 straight arm raises with the bricks, and 20 MNCs.

Down the hill to the abandoned funeral home for 20 military merkins, 20 brick tricep extensions and 20 military merkins.

Next stop was the library for 20 merkins, 20 brick curls and 20 merkins.

Mosey to the front of the middle school for 20 diamond merkins, 20 brick chest punches and 20 diamond merkins.

Back down the hill to the picnic shelter at the park for 3 sets of 5 pullups and 20 dips.

Still a little bit of time so we dropped the bricks and formed a circle around the fountain. It was carefully explained that first the PAX would bear craw halfway around the fountain. At that point, stop and plank. The first person does 10 merkins. When he finishes, the next person does 10, and on down the line till everyone has gone. Rinse and repeat. (I’m not sure that is what actually happened)
