8 regular PAX and 1 FNG fought the urge to stay in the A/C and posted at the hottest AO in the Gashouse inventory. With most guys showing up right as we started, a short disclaimer then we start. As soon as the warmup began Lil’ Sweet EH’d a FNG, which is awesome. YHC paused the warmup, welcomed the FNG and attempted the “FNG version” of the disclaimer. He seemed to understand, so we resumed the warmup. The whole thing went down like this:
- Seal Jacks x15 IC
- Imperial Walkers x15 IC
- Moroccan Nightclubs x25 IC
- Don Quixotes x15 IC
- LBC’s x15 IC
PAX go to YHC’s car to get some junk out of his trunk. Some coupons for the trip (Small bricks). Then mosey to the picnic shelter. As the PAX came out of the woods toward the picnic shelter, some of them were attempting to play chicken with an oncoming car. The driver of the car saw the Midoriyama maniacs and decided to stop the vehicle for fear of totally destroying his vehicle! Once everyone reached the picnic shelter, the Q called for 10 (or 15 depending on how you count) Hail Marys and Power Merkins. Rinse and repeat for a total of 3 rounds.
YHC led the PAX for a short mosey to slider hill. Once there, all PAX mosey down the hill, Bernie Sanders halfway back up, drop for 5 clock merkins at 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock (YHC likes these), bear crawl the rest of the way up the hill, then American hammers IC X10 with the coupons we’ve been carrying. YHC had originally planned for three rounds, but Lil’ Beast showed all the older men some awesome initiative and began a 4th round! Being inspired, YHC called for one more round, which kicked off mucho mumble chatter from the rest of the PAX. Outstanding work, Lil’ Beast!
Next is a short mosey to the closest parking lot for some route 66 CDD’s, then bear crawl back to start line to grab our coupons. Mosey across the road to the parking lot closest to the Flag. Q calls for a quick set of 11’s across the short side of the parking lot with LBC’s and Merkins prescribed. Mosey back to Flag for a little Mary:
- Dying Cockroaches X15 IC
- X/O’s X10
- Flutter Kicks X15 IC
- Finally, Burpees X10 OYO

Name-o-rama for our FNG. Welcome to FNG Miyagi! He pushed the rock better than most on their first time out to Midoriyama. Come back out brother. It doesn’t get easier. You just get better!
One thing YHC forgot- 22 Merkins for our vets. I am truly sorry for this oversight, guys. I did mine as soon as I got home. Please knock them out OYO when you can.
Outstanding work and rock pushing by all! Once again, thank you for the chance to lead a great group of men! AYE!
Until next time,
