8 HIM evaded the misleading efforts posed by the fartsack and posted at Titan for a workout involving a playlist, coupons, some running, and a few Merkins here and there.

Make an inspection mosey around the inside of the actual Parthenon then parked back at front of Parthenon for THE THANG:
Partner up in 1s and 2s
1s perform SSH at bottom of steps
2s bear crawl up the right side of the Parthenon to top of first landing, then 10 merkins
2s bear crawl to top of second landing, then 10 burpees
2s crawl bear back to top of first landing, then 10 merkins
2s crawl bear back to bottom left side of steps
Mosey around the ellipse then back to original location for the next Activity, but first, a quick mosey to my trunk for a retrieval of coupons (aka 1/2 fire bricks)
3 rounds of the following:
With a pair of coupons placed on ground in front of Parthenon, 1s perform Merkins
10 x Merkins with right hand on Coupon
10 x Merkins with both hands on Coupons
10 x Merkins with left hand on Coupon
2s sprint around Ellipse
Another Mosey around the Ellipse before going back to our original location in front of the the Parthenon yet again for THANG 3 (experimental beta).
THANG 3 (experimental beta):
Wheelbarrow up the two sets of steps on the right side of the Parthenon with your partner to first landing, then swap out and go down the left side of the two sets of steps backwards with partner (and YHC must admit, this part was intense).
As this endeavor was more risky than anticipated, we stopped after one round.
Mosey around the Ellipse yet again, then we proceeded to get after THANG 4.
2 rounds of DIDs
15 x Dips
10 x Incline Merkins
5 x Decline Merkins
Mosey around Ellipse
Upon completion of THANG 4, we started on MARY.
12 x LBCs
10 x Flutter Kicks
12 x Freddie Mercurys
20 x Alabama Prom Dates
This was definitely an improvement over Friday’s Q, as YHC landed the plane at 0615 and we all got a little sweaty as a group (and that’s a necessity).
Always a pleasure to lead you men!
10/29 – Libeery at Fat Bottom Brewery in The Nations. Time TBD. Book is “The Three Big Questions for Frantic Families” by Patrick Lencioni. The Art of Manliness podcast interview is a good summary, especially if you would rather consume the material through auditory means.
