Thang 1: Merkin Mania
We made our way around the lake stopping at each bench to complete 10 Derkins. When we finished, no one knew how many benches we had stopped at, so we worked our way around backwards doing incline Merkins and adding one rep at each bench until we were back at the start in order to get an accurate count. FYI there are 21 benches…. We ended up doing 210 Derkins and 231 Incline Merkins.There was a lot of mumblechatter from the PAX, and some comparisons to @Noodles5 MOM:
We moseyed back to the flag and completed the following IC:

  • 25x Squats
  • 20x LBC’s
  • 20x Oblique Crunches each side

Where the head leads, the body will follow. Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.Prayer:
@T-bone is getting a root canal. Praise for Naomi returning home, and continued prayers for @Pool Boy and family as she continues her treatment at home.
