Mosey to Veteran’s Park a different way. Along the way, did 10 merkins, 10 big boys, and 10 squats 3 times.

The Thang: The Ladder

Unlike previous Qs of the Ladder, this time the entire ladder was climbed first and then one exercise was taken away each round. Each Pax grabbed a partner and together they completed these exercises:

The ladder:

  1. 20 burpees
  2. 50 BBS
  3. Short run – Memorial Park track
  4. 50 dips on wall
  5. 50 squats
  6. Long run – from Memorial Amphitheather, go around pond, to street, and return to Park
  7. 50 merkins
  8. 50 lunges

Each pair completed exercise 1 – 8, then 1 – 7, then 1 – 6, and so on until they only completed #1. Pax were instructed to split up each exercise and take turns completing the runs.

After the Ladder, all pax moseyed back to the shovel flag.

Quick Mary:

30 flutter kicks

20 American Hammers


Announcements: Scrap Iron 5k next weekend.

Prayers: All travelers. For our country. For all of us.


  • Don’t give Pax difficult workouts on paper. Apparently, they can’t read at 6:45 am on a Saturday.
  • “Sharing” means different things to different pax.

As always, it’s a pleasure to lead these men.

Ambien, out.
