5.16.19 -A Double-Dog Dora

A warm late-spring morning with a rosy dawn greeted two PAX as they met for a weekday Beatdown. After having a series of burpee and bearcrawl focused workouts that had all the PAX reiterate their abiding “love” for 2 of the 3 “B”s, YHC felt it was necessary to show some love to the third “B” – Blocks. The following exercise also contained no running, being fully Clydesdale friendly.

  • Abe Vigodas ICx21
  • Motivators ICx7

Flora 1,2,3: Dora’s lazy, mean stepsister. Partner exercise involving coupons. 100 merkins – P1 does 10 merks with feet on coupon. P2 holds plank. Flapjack, until 100 reps total. 200 LBCs – P1 does 20 LBC holding coupon high on chest. P2 holds legs 6″ off ground, and extends arms w/ coupon over chest. Flapjack. 300 Goblet Squats – P1 does 25 goblet squats. P2 lowers to bottom of goblet squat w/ coupon, and holds. Flapjack.

Immediately followed by:

Juggernaut Dora 1,2,3: like regular Dora, Partners do 100 merk, 200 LBC, 300 squats, but instead of running, Partner 2 does a Juggernaut for 25 yards and back. Juggernaut is a a carry with a Ruck + Coupon in each hand.

We had a little bonus time after so we rolled in some Colt 60s and then walked the coupons back to their home, wrapping up with

Aiken Legs: 20 squats, 20 square jumps, 20 lunges, 20 split jacks


  • Superman: lie on your 12 (belly) and lift everything so that just your bellybutton touches the ground, hold for 1 min, rest for 30sec, hold for 1 min.
  • 2 min of Flutters (ICx60)

COT: Prayers for hitting the week strong and finishing well, hoping to make good headway at work and at home. Prayers for Archive who was still too sick to post, and for other brothers nursing injuries or not able to make the weekday. Upcoming travel for Archive and Banks, a solid end to the school year for the Crunch household and a good start to summer.

Moleskin: This was another one of those slightly ambitious and probably crazy routines that we got the chance to just throw ourselves into. Banks does a good job putting up with my cray cray, he knew from the jump that something was up and didn’t seem disappointed.
