WARM-O-RAMA. (Counts of 9, 16, 25, based on the 3,4,5 right triangle)

  • High Knees x9IC
  • TTT x16IC
  • SSH x25IC
  • Mountain Climbers x9
  • Nancy Kerrigans x8IC fwd x8IC rev (16IC total)
  • Don Quixote’s x25IC

The Thang: Pythagorean triples.  A right triangle was setup with 3,4,5 dimensions (60ftx80ftx100ft). Exercises were based on distance times, and reps as indicated below.  

Distance: Two trips around the 3,4,5 triangle:

  • Standing long jumps = 60ft
  • Bear crawl = 80ft
  • Lunge claps = 100ft

Time: PYOP at the snack bar

  • 3min Arms = Merkins/Derkins/Irkins/CDD/Makhtar N’Diayes/Burpees/Dips/etc
  • 4min Legs = step ups/flutters/LtDan/Squats/Monkey Humpers/etc
  • 5min Core = plank variations/AH/LBC/Cindy Crawfords/etc

Reps: Multiples of 3, 4, 5.  Pax took turns drawing cards from the Arms/Legs/Core stacks.  Pax took turns counting for the exercises.

  • Reps = 9 Merkins, 12 Prisoner Getups, 15 Dying Cockroaches
  • Reps = 12 Makhtar N’Diayes, 16 Thigh Masters, 20 Mountain Climbers

Distance: One more trip around the 3,4,5 triangle:

  • Standing long jumps = 60ft
  • Bear crawl = 80ft
  • Lunge claps = 100ft


  • Dead bugs
  • Bird Dogs
  • AH – x25

Highlights from the gloom:

  • The FNG led counts for an exercise, dying cockroaches.  Way to step up!
  • When Tramp Stamp was bear crawling, Dean said, let me get a good look at that ink.


  • Count-o-rama: 11 with the Q
  • Name-o-rama: Lucky Charms, Dean, Thin Mint, Chipper, Wham-o, Duvet, Tramp Stamp, Epstein, FNG (Ned King? Kane?), Crankbait, Tarde (Q).
  • The FNG is Ned, was invited by Epstein, and they go to church together.  We considered “Little Epstein”, but settled on “Flanders”. Homer and Marge have a new friend in the gloom.

Ned Flanders: He is the extremely religious, good-natured, cheery next-door neighbor to the Simpson family and is generally envied and loathed by Homer Simpson.
  • Prayer concerns and announcements: Toto has 5 more months in Uganda.  Pray for April and Alexis. Sludgefest Saturday.
  • BOM: Crankbait led us out in prayer.

Always an honor, and always right on time, Tarde
