Backblast – Pain in the Park – 18 January 2020

13 Hearty PAX showed up this morning for a good old fashioned beat down. PAX were: Duvet, Fudd, Kay, Checkbook, Mathers, Wham-O, Gilmore, Epstein, Sludge, Dr. Evil, Rawhide, Special Ed, and Doubtfire (QIC)

Seeing no FNGs, Q led off with a quick disclaimer and then we moseyed (some much slower than others) to Cat Lady Circle for W-o-R:

  • SSH (14x)
  • Imperial Walkers (14x)
  • Chinooks (15x, 7, then 8 because QIC can’t count)
  • Goofballs (14x)
  • Slow Abe Vigodas (14x)

Mosey to the track because the baseball diamond was a little dark this morning for Thang 1: 7 of Diamonds. In rounds, listed exercise performed at each corner of the track, run in between. Exercises were:

  • Round 1 (7) – Prison Burpees
  • Round 2 (14) – Dry Docks
  • Round 3 (21) – Plank Jacks
  • Round 4 (28) – LBC’s
  • Round 5 (21) – Squats
  • Round 6 (14) – Merkins
  • Round 7 (7) – Crunchy Frogs

Mosey to benches for Thang 2: Partner Exercises. PAX partnered up and collectively performed the following exercises, with 1 partner running to the stop sign and back while the other partner performed exercises, swapping when partner 1 returned:

  • 84x Crab Cakes IC
  • 77x Step Ups
  • 70x Dips
  • 63x Inverted Pull ups (these had to move to Big Boy Sit-up poles due to QIC not remembering how low the benches were)
  • 56x Side Plank Pushups (28 each side)
  • 49x Curb Bangers
  • 42x Lt Dans

Omaha was called in the middle of the curb bangers and all PAX ground out 5 Lt Dans each before we moseyed to the basketball court for 6MOM:

  • Low Dolly’s (14x)
  • Nolan Ryans (14x, 7x each side)
  • Freddie Mercury’s (14x)
  • Box Cutters (14x)
  • ‘Merican Hammers (21x)


  • Prayers for Lambeau and family – Step father passed away last weekend unexpectedly – funeral in Sophia today
  • Prayers for Kay’s family – Blake has the flu and hoping no one else in the family gets it
  • Prayers for Shawn – Daughter Allie (23 or 24) going into a 65-80 day addiction recovery program – Last chance for her.
  • Sludgefest III – Saturday January 25th at 6:30pm – Address on Slack – Money due to Sludge ASAP

Sludge led us out.

It’s always an honor to work out with and lead this fine group of men. Hope you got enough today.
