YHC had been looking forward to lead the regions best AO in a good ole beat down. Today was the day. I had my Weinke prepared and was ready to get to work. I walk outside and felt the chill in the air and thought to myself, “my hands ain’t gonna like today.” So, I roll on to Folsom a bit early to stretch and chat before time to clock in. When 5:30 hits, we start.

No FNGs, short disclaimer


SSH, Imperial Walkers, Low slow squats: all x10 IC

Mosey up to the animal shelter to grab a block.


Line up at the base of the adjacent hill. The routine called was 11’s. And these were horrible. Blockees at the bottom of the hill, box jump over the block, then rifle carry the block up the hill for thrusters. Rifle carry your block back down. And yes, you box jump over your block after each blockee! Lots of mumblechatter from the PAX, myself included. This seemed to take longer than I expected, but in all honesty, we finished it fairly quick. Now, Replace blocks and mosey to tennis courts. Line up for burpee suicides. Mosey one court and back for 1 burpee, grab 5 merkins at each turn back. Mosey to the second and back for 2 burpees. Continue until you’ve reached the final court then count it back down to 1. Escalate the burpees but the merkins stay at 5.  This was a battle to get the PAX on track. The chatter here was broad and pronounced. Lots of confusion of the called routine. “Do we escalate the merkins?” “Do we stop after the last court?” “The math part is easy.” We pulled together and finally made it through.  Time is running out, so we mosey back to start.
