Last Saturday at Gashouse, Roscoe introduced the descending triangle. It consisted of squats, burpees, and 8-count body builders which we were told are not burpees with a plank jack. They are 8-count body builders. Since plagiarism is the highest form of flattery, I decided to borrow the geometrical beatdown for my first Q Downtown.

I arrived a few minutes early not sure what kind of crowd we would have between the cold, the covid, and the blood drive the prior day. We ended up with 7 PAX as Waterboy assumed my normal arrival time and moseyed up to the circle at 0530. Let’s get to work.

The Pledge

SSH x 15
LBCs x 15
Merkins x 15
Imperial Walkers x 15

Mosey towards 321 with a turn by the Pita Wheel (which I had for lunch today and is outstanding for anyone who has not been there) then a turn left on 74 and a final turn left into the Parking Deck.

I’d mentioned an ascending descending rectangle on twitter so here are the details.

Start at the bottom of the deck in the middle of the lane.

8-count body builders x 10 (remember, these are not burpees with a plank jack)
Big Boy Sit-ups x 10
Flutter Kicks x 10
Squats x 10
Hand-Release Merkins x 10

Mosey to the next level of the parking deck
Repeat all 5 exercises x 9
Next level, then exercises x 8
Repeat until the top layer, then exercises x 5

Since we are out of levels, let’s descend to the bottom layer and start over.

We’d be at a count of 4 but this is round 2. So like Jeopardy, in round 2 all values are doubled.

So at bottom level, exercises x 8
Next level, exercises x 6
Repeat until we get to 2 then mosey to the top level

Once again with the plagiarism, I stole Dirty Elevens from Clavin and the Labyrinth this week.

Start on one side with 10 Mike Tysons.
Run to other side with 1 burpee in the middle for 1 LBC
Back to other side with 1 burpee in the middle for 9 Mike Tysons
Rinse and repeat

Time’s up. Let’s mosey back, but we took the long way. So instead of using the stairs, we moseyed down each level.

Back to start and flutters til 0615.

Everything is cancelled
