Simplistically Aweful

6 PAX showed up in the gloom this morning for what YHC promised to be a “more simplistic” concept workout. The PAX immediately knew better than to trust me, but pushed forward non-the-less. No fancy exercises, no fancy lexicon, just a good ol fashion BEAT down.


The Thang

YHC gave the PAX an option this morning for the (beginning of) “warm-up”:

100 merkins, 200 SSH, OR 75 of each

Popular choice was “75 of each” option

Plank for all to finish


Squat x 50 OYO

LBC x 30 (IC)

Hello Dolly x 20 (IC)

V-Up x 10 (IC)

Burpee x 5 OYO

Squat x 45 OYO

Rinse and Repeat x 2 (3x total) with numbers decreasing (some) along the way

Total squat count 225

Mosey to bottom of Hot Tub Hill

3 consecutive laps on hill

40 merkins, 40 squats

Plank for all to finish

2.5 laps

35 merkin, 35 squats

Plank for all

2 laps

30 merkins, 30 squats

…….you get the picture

decreasing lap count by 1/2 and rep counts by 5 ea time

Merkin and squat count for this 165

Jailbreak to top of hill

10 merkins, 10 Squats





  • 400 total squats this morning, nice work guys and good luck with that at Chisel tomorrow morning
