13 men at Midoriyama.  It’s been a long time since I’ve had a chance to make the premier evening workout because of work, so I was excited to have the chance to Q today.  Wojo, appreciation the opportunity.  No FNGs, time to work.


Gravel pickers x 10 (ic)

10 Burpees.


The Thang:


Short mosey to the first light pole before the pump track.  We would stop at 4 poles along the way doing exercises at each.

  1.  5 Hand Release Burpees

  2.  5 HR Burpees, 10 HR Merkins

  3.  5 HR Burpees, 10 HR Merkins, 15  HR Mike Tysons

  4.  5 HR Burpees, 10 HR Merkins, 15 Mike Tyson’s, 20 HR Werkins

Lots of mumble chatter during this portion.  It definitely sucked, but wanted to emphasis the Hand Release part. Goal was to eliminate the ridiculous Neckies performed by so many pax.  It wasn’t a success!  Time to move on.


Next we moseyed to the top of the fishing pier hill.  Exercise called here is the always effective Triple Nickel.  Start with 5 Big Boys at the top, run to the bottom for 5 Imperial Walker Squats, run back to top.  Do this 5 times.  That hill seems to never get any easier.

Next is a mosey back to the playground.  I wanted to rinse and repeat the Hand Release work at the light poles on the way back, but decided that wasn’t a good idea after the first round mess!  Exercise called at the playground is:

5 Rounds

  1. 5 Pull-ups

  2. 10 Merkins

  3. 15 Squats


With time still remaining, we moseyed to the parking lot beside the turd shack.  Pulled the next exercise from Freight’s playbook.  Too bad he wasn’t here to enjoy.  Pax told to stand beside a parking space line.  Exercises called are Burpees, and Side Hops.  They are to be performed in a 1:4 ratio.  Start with 1 Burpee, 4 side Hops back and forth across the line.  Next is 2 Burpees/8 Hops, 3 Burpees/12 Hops and so.  Continue this until you finish with 10 Burpees/40 Side Hops. That wasn’t enjoyable.  Time up, head to flag.
