10 pax and 1 lonely rucker posted at #TOT on Monday AM to defy #Cantore and get their week started right. The rain held off and much work was done.

Mission and Disclaimer.
Warm up – SSH, HB. Mosey to the coupons. After logging over 17 miles running last week, YHC was ready to get in muscle building work.

Thang – take your CMUs to the church parking lot. Simple workout to start. BOMBS escalator. 10 burpees, run to the far curb and back. 10 burpees, 15 overhead block presses, run to the far curb and back. 10 burpees, 15 overhead presses, 20 side to side merkins alternating hands on the CMU, run to the far curb and back. 10/15/20/25 bent over CMU rows, run. 10/15/20/25/30 goblet squats, run. Plank to wait on the six. TClaps to ACA, Soccer Mom, and Benign who almost lapped YHC. #rabbits

Thang2 – a twist on an oldie. Bambi gave us the now infamous Merkin Trail of Tears. YHC asked the pax to line up shoulder to shoulder in a line and there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Time for ole switcharoo…NOT the merkin trail of tears, but a new twist…the Tree Hugger Trail of Tears. All pax holding Al Gore in a line. One at a time, pax will duck walk to the other end and lead in an increasing number of squats. As Ponch eloquently put “I don’t mean to complain, but this hurts my legs.” #missionaccomplished. Tclaps to Macho Man for joining us for this exercise with his ruck.

Return the blocks and return to the flags.
