3.30.19 5 Alive or 5 Alarm?

3 PAX Arrived in the gloom for a friendly Saturday Beatdown from yours truly. Banks (QIC), Captain Crunch, and FNG – Jazz Hands

It started the same as most Saturdays do with a

Warm-O-Rama:

7x Motivators

15x Tin Soldiers

From there our Q had a new routine that he wanted to try out on the unsuspecting PAX. There was some debate over the name of the Thang, originally the Q wanted to call it 5 Alive, but after it was over Captain Crunch suggested the name 5 Alarm. I will let you be the judge of what the final name should be.

The Thang:

*It should be noted that Captain Crunch was feeling particularly motivated this morning and decided to do the entire routine with a ruck on his back (respect!)

  • Run the short mile stopping at each lamp post until the Thang is complete
  • 1st Lamp – 1 Burpee
  • 2nd Lamp – 2 Burpees – this progresses up to the 5th lamp post and doing 5 Burpees
  • 6th Lamp – 5 Burpees, 1 Merkin – The Merkins increase by 1 until the 10th lamp post
  • 11th Lamp – 5 Burpees, 5 Merkins, 1 Star Jump – The Star Jumps Increase until the 15th lamp post
  • 16th Lamp – 5 Burpees, 5 Merkins, 5 Star Jump, 1 Squat – The Squats increase until the 20th lamp post
  • 21st Lamp – 5 Burpees, 5 Merkins, 5 Star Jumps, 5 Squats, 1 Dive Bomber – The Dive Bombers increase until the 25th lamp post
  • 25th Lamp – The routine culminates with 5 Burpees, 5 Merkins, 5 Star Jumps, 5 Squats, and 5 Dive Bombers
  • From there, run the rest of the mile

For those of you counting at home, that adds up to the following:

  • 115 Burpees
  • 90 Merkins
  • 65 Star Jumps
  • 40 Squats
  • 15 Dive Bombers

From there we went into

Thang 2:
