From Dr. Phil

9 PAX gave the Heisman pose to their snooze button and ventured out into the pitchfork gloom for an upper body beat down and pursued bulging biceps while singing along with REO Speedwagon…..yes, REO Speedwagon. Due to YHC’s early morning technical difficulties PANDORA served us up a dish of moderately decent hair band music with a few middle school dance songs sprinkled in. My apologies gentlemen, I will up my DJ game next time.

The Thang:

Merkin Musical Chairs
-PAX pulled the circle in tight and sat their dumbbells down shoulder width apart. The lightest set of dumbbells was removed from the circle leaving an open “chair.” Each PAX got in a plank position in front of their dumbbells. We did one merkin and then rotated to the right to the next set of dumbbells. Merkin #2 and then rotated to the right again with a total of 5 rotations. After the 5th merkin/rotation, the PAX picked up the dumbbells they landed in front of and did 10 shoulder presses. The PAX that landed in the open “chair” had to do burpees until all other PAX completed shoulder shrugs. Repeato for a total of 3 rounds.
