10 PAX gathered to say goodbye to 2015 in style and count down to the new year with a Tabata countdown suckfest.  Yes, I spelled it Tabata.  He is a person, not a loaf of bread.


As a parting tribute to the year 2015, the reps were based upon 20 and 15.

SSH x 35.  The mumblechatter got started early when YHC went past 20 on the count.

High knee jumps x 20 OYO.  As we are finishing these up, Alfred, having finally shaken off the clutches of the fartsack, comes jogging across the lawn to join us.

IW x 15

The Thang

Mosey to the intersection of Cannon and Jason for Round 1 of Tabata – 20 seconds high intensity reps, 10 second transition to next exercise.  We did 4 different exercises in each round, then repeated the sequence to get to a total of 4 minutes per round.

Round 1: Merkins, LBCs, Lunges, Burpees

A train rolled through as we were doing the burpees, but the PAX were still excited when I called for the train burpees.  With that out of the way, time to mosey to MUMC to pick up our coupons for Round 2.

Round 2: Bench Press, Curls, Squats, Manmaker Burpees

Another train came through, although there was some mumblechatter about it being the same one rolling through Taylors.  10 burpees and time to mosey to the park entrance for Round 3.

Round 3: Dips, Box Jumps, Derkins, Burpees

Mosey to the amphitheater stage for Round 4.

Round 4: Plank Jacks, Plank dips, Shoulder Touches, Burpees.

There was still a little time left, so we head over to the amphitheater seats for some Joe Webb.  Merkin at the bottom, joe hendrix to the top, and then air presses.  In honor of 2015, we did 1 merkin and 5 air presses.  We only had time to get one rep in before a third train came through.  So 10 more burpees and it is time for Mary.


Heel touch crunch x 20 OYO

Erectors – started off the first few holding the up position, then finished with normal cadence. 20 total

Rosalita – mumblechatter went back to high gear here.  It got so loud, no one could even hear the count over Footloose.  At one point the train conductor had to come over and ask him to keep it down since no one could hear the whistle.


Kotters to Oui Oui.  Good discussion of how in 2016 we all need to reach out to PAX we have not seen in a while.  Everyone needs an accountability poke every now and then.  Erector even reminded us we can EH FNGs as well.  Turns out it is Fight Club rather than F3 that you are not allowed to talk about.

2015 was a challenging year for many of the PAX.  Praise to God for the strength to endure those challenges and prayers that 2016 will be a year of blessings for the PAX, our families, and our communities. Specifically, prayers for Walker, Ford Sweeney, and Erector’s godfather.

Good work, men. Enjoyed it.
