Baby Arm Circles Reverse X 10 IC

Mosey to the corner of Sunlake Blvd and LLR Blvd for today’s fun. All PAX ran north on sunlake blvd and did 3 Burpees, 6 Squats, and 9 LBCs at each light pole until we got to Nightshade.

YHC could not come up with a better idea for the remaining part of the beatdown so the deck of death was consulted. Waterboy cut the deck and YHC picked the first five cards for the exercises to be performed after a quick mosey to the corner of Serenoa DR:

K of Spades: 10 Squats

8 of Clubs: 8 Lunges HW (this was actually Luge but YHC misread it)

9 of Diamonds: 9 Merkins (this was actually Ranger Merkins but did not have the description for it)

Queen of Hearts: 10 Burpees

Ace of Hearts: 100 SSH

PAX each picked out their own card and then moseyed to the roundabout for:

5 of Spades: 5 Standing Lunges HW

5 of Clubs: 15 Oblique Crunches HW

5 of Diamonds: 5 Hand Release Merkins

Jack of Clubs: 10 Shoulder Taps HW

9 of Clubs: 90 seconds of High Plank (PAX counted 15 seconds each)


Mosey to the sidewalk near the Lake Gate where the PAX picked

7 of Clubs: 17 LBCs (YHC added 10 since 7 is too low of a rep count)

King of Clubs: 10 American Hammers HW

Joker: YHC set the rep count at 25 and Hitchhiker called Jump Squats

7 of Hearts: Bear Crawl from the Nature View Drive to the Lake Gate

6 of Hearts: Backward Run from entrance of lake path until we passed three set of trees.

Mosey to the dock and FOP to check on the other PAX to encourage them as they finished up the last 5 minutes of the IPC. Slosey across the field to the parking lot where the PAX picked:

Queen of Clubs: 10 Freddie Mercuries HW

6 of Diamonds: 16 Wide Arm Merkins (YHC clarified the rep count math for the PAX)

King of Hearts: 10 Mountain Climbers HW

10 of Hearts: 10 Butt Kicks HW

10 of Diamonds: 10 Incline Merkins

Ace of Spades: 100 Calf Raises

Great job by all PAX completing the beatdown and those knocking out the IPC Week 1 Challenge.


Prayers to those PAX who are pushing themselves to prepare for the upcoming Grow Ruck and half marathon.

Prayers to those PAX DR or recovering from injuries.
