YHC offered to Q The Yank on PT Test Saturday for those pax that did not want 250 reps of the same thing over and over and over and…

After a standard warm-up of SSHs, toy soldiers, Don Qs and burpees, the HIMs grabbed a couple of coupons out of The Chariot and moseyed to the pit.

The workout went something like this:

11s with wall sit presses at one end and jump squat presses at the other. Oh, and a pavee (not a blockee or brickee) each time crossing the mid-point.

After a 1-2 count off, a 2 team Dora was called.  Team 1 ran the outside of the pit while Team 2 performed an exercise (merkins, wall sit punches, MNCs, LBCs, and squats with arms held high), with a flap jack after each exercise. Everything was done with the coupons. YHC likes to hear mumble chatter, and a non-counting block o’ reps greatly aided in that endeavor.

With plenty of time to spare, suicides were in order using extra coupons to mark the turn around. Start with 5 hip slappers, run to the first coupon and do one pavee, run back. Do 5 dirty hook ups, run to the second coupon and do two pavees, and so on. 5 big bois, and 5 diamonds finished up round 1. Round 2 was in reverse, beginning with 10 diamonds, running to coupon 4 and do 4 pavees, and suicide back down.

A quick mosey back to The Chariot to drop off the coupons, and YHC asked Dirt for a full set of Dirty Calves at the stairs. Mumble chatter was high! Just enough time for some Mary and time was called.
