Day one PR challenge and I’ve got rep and count cheaters at the first workout. We did a simple WOD but it was a ton of reps.
Round 1 100 reps. each – Merkins, Squats, Big Boys, and SSHs. Rinse repeat but drop the reps. by 25 until you get to a final round of 25 each. This was very similar to our PT test with the exception of the useless running which I intentionally left out. There was however a timer and every 3 minutes we stopped where we were and did 3 burpees. Very simple but very effective. You’ve got to pace yourself in those first two marathon rounds so that your body doesn’t die before you get to the sprint rounds.
Well first thing I saw when we started was someone doing half reps.Then I’ve got Ball Joint and SA tag teaming reps looking like Midnight Express after the Road Warriors kicked the snot out of them at The Starcade 89’ Scaffold Match. Next I saw the worst version of face down arse up crawling on your knees Merkins I’ve ever seen. I guess that’s the version you want to practice if your boss has a tiny desk. I can tell you now that the things I saw out here today are burned into my brain and I can’t unsee them. I heard a hey man It’s You vs You. Well if we’re going to cheat that bad we need to change that motto to If You Ain’t Cheating Then You Ain’t Trying. It wasn’t all bad though I had guys pushing and grinding through the suck. On another high note I had the Peoples Champ back out here in the Gloom with us this am and he appeared to have picked up right where he left off before Lynn Good abducted him last month. Then there was Westside this guy is like the original Terminator literally said nothing just grinding through rep after rep with impeccable form and performance. He’s the only one to get through the all rounds from what I could tell. Dude went Beast Mode.
We finally got through that mess and headed back up for the Pledge and COT.

There were several spoken and unspoken prayers. As always we’ve got way too many things to be thankful and give praise for.
Thanks For The Support and Opportunity.
Well that’s all for now I’m sure I will get the chance to critique more of you guys in the near future. Until then remember If You Ain’t Cheating then You Ain’t Trying.
