Handful of washers and dryers
Baby Arm Circles increasing in size.


PAX joined together to Settle Catan through some hard labor.

PAX travelled to each corner of the square for a different exercise (Merkins, Squats, WWI’s, and Lunges). A singular die was rolled to determine the quantity of each exercise (number rolled x 5 = quantity).

After 5 sets, Catan was effectively settled.

Next PAX competed in a 1v1 hand-smacking-plank tourney. Iditarod took the cake in the finals vs. Scraps.

Then PAX hit the curb for a bear crawl, 10 shoulder touches, crawl bear, and 10 merkins. Rinse and repeat.

Then a duck walk, 10 squats, a walk duck, 10 more squats. Rinse and repeat.

Rounded out with an ab circle with a twist of rolling the dice for quantity (number rolled x 5 = quantity)

CoT & BoM.

Some time during the Toy Soldiers, Scraps arrives and with his best old lady voice says “Won’t you go away you Nazi’s, we kicked you out before. Lot’s of awkward laughs until we realized who it was joining us as our second LIFO of the morning.

Lap 1-Normal
Lap 2-Politician
Lap 3-Run/Side Shuffle

QIC: Papa Juan (HIM)
PAX: Aristotle, Schnitzel, Scraps, Ace, Yosef, Mr. Roboto, Air Wolf, NPR, Iditarod, Gambino (FNG)

11 Unsuspecting PAX were treated in the cool sub 50 degree gloom to Papa Juan’s Large hand tossed with all the things. Papa Juan had cooked up a 15 station beat down that included the following stations:
Deeps (Dips for the uninitiated)
Pushups (Merkins)
Shouder Presses W/ DBs
Run (to the hotlly debated statue)
Star plank
Crunches (LBCs)
Curls (For the Girls)
Leg Raises
Rest Station
Papa Juan instructed the Pax to work with all you got for 45 seconds and then 15 seconds rest/transition to next station after recording reps where applicable with chalk he’d provided at each station. Second round try to meet or bet your previous round. After two rounds pax was sufficiently smoked and many gagged after an apparent early am cleaning of a grease trap or releasing of a septic tank or something nearby.
4-5 mins of around the world choose your own ab exercise from each pax until time was met.
Tclaps to Papa Juan for using the google DOC to sign up and grabbing the Q unsolicited. Grateful for your leadership and initiative. And to FNG Gambino getting involved early introducing the PAX some exercise that definitely helped my SI Joint.
COT: Prayers for our PAX Air Wolf requested prayers for interview this week.
See you in the gloom,
The Boro Scribe

Midweek seeing that YHC schedule dictated Nashville on Friday decided to traverse to the shire to post at cruel hall for old time sake. Noticing the insert name here was still in place YHC decided to follow directions.

Since YHC’s hometown boys were riding the crimson tide into Nashville for Saturday’s festivities in west end YHC thought it only fitting to bring a little Tuscaloosa to the Shire.  It doesn’t happen often since the SEC expanded.
