AO Mastodon, 5/18/21, 5:30AM
Twenty-eight PAX posted for a friendly beatdown this beautiful morning. After a quick WOR of 5 count motivators, OYO arm circles and Michael Phelps, and 10 copperhead merkins IC, we moseyed over to Dan Taylor alley for Thang One.
Thang One: KUBB 1
With way more men than I anticipated, I made some modifications to my plan as we moseyed to Dan Taylor. KUBB was set up between two soccer goals. Men partnered up. I sent seven pairs to one side of the pitch and seven to the other side. In each partnership, one HIM ran around a marked route while the other earned tosses and tossing. A toss was earned with 30 merkins, 30 lunges, or 30 squats. When a team knocked a block down, the PAX present on that team ran a short lap around their soccer goal before continuing. When the runner of the pair returned, partners switched roles.
Instead of tossing a baton at the blocks, PAX could choose to take a frisbee and attempt to hit a set target. A successful hit resulted in a free block knock down.
Once a team knocked down all the blocks they did ten burpees before attempting the king.
Team 1 was victorious in round one.
Thang Two: KUBB 2
Same as round one with shorter running route, 15 reps each: hand release merkins, Bonnie Blairs, jump squats.
Team 2 won this round.
Mary/ tie breaker
Back at the flags teams circled up for a plank-off to determine the winner. After a few minutes of planking, merkins were mixed in. With six or seven PAX left we went to plank with arms bent to 90 degrees. It came down to Waterboy and BigMac with Waterboy pulling off the win. Go team 2!
