YHC arrived a little early today to make sure the table was set for the day’s workout. After a quick walk around in the gloom, the men of the Yank began to arrive. Qui$h and Tool Time made a quick fly-by finishing up some EC and one of the two FNGs ran to the AO too! Great start!
After some extended chit chat in YHC called for the PAX to circle up to get it going. A full disclaimer was given to start the two FNGs off right along with some encouraging words and we were off.

A short mosey to the pavilion revealed a little surprise for the PAX, a deck of cards! Could it be THE DECK OF DEATH?!? Yes!!! Immediate mumble chatter followed. Excellentt!
Spades = Burpees
Clubs = Squats
Hearts = LBCs
Diamonds = Dips
When a certain suit is drawn, the PAX will execute the corresponding number of reps for that exercise. The cards were picked one by one and the PAX performed like the champions they are, FNGs included. This routine is not joke! The only time the group missed a beat was when YHC Omaha’d to cut the last set of burpees in half. In retrospect, the PAX was strong, YHC had actually softened up from a month of BRR training that has left him in less than ideal F3 shape!
Once this ordeal was complete, the PAX was led to the field behind the middle school for some new action, but low and behold they were beaten to the spot by a middle aged guy practicing his disc golf form. So that our workout could maintain our good rep in the community, YHC decided to play nice and not take over the field but instead move on to a patch of grass on the side of the school.
When everyone had arrived, a leg of Seal Crawls was announced. This is a crappy derivation of Bear crawls because you don’t use your legs. One length of this had everyone tapping out and agreeing that we shouldn’t try this one for a long time. 20 goof balls was announced followed by a return trip of actual bear crawls.
Mosey back down to the amphitheater for the Triple Nickel. 5 mountain climbers at the bottom, run up the hill for 5 WWI sit-ups at the top. Repeato x5.
This too was really tough but the PAX powered through just in time for a short round of ab work.

Awesome work men. Thanks go to Mayor for pulling some strings to make sure we avoided the trains today. Lord knows we did enough burpees anyway.
It was a pleasure leading today, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
