Big Poles, Annoying Sprinklers

Shawshank has a long and illustrious history of stellar workouts led by high impact men. Today was no exception if I say so myself. YHC had a plan which would push pax to the limit, deepen the bonds of brotherhood, and set each other up for one heckuva Tuesday. Well, all of that is up for debate. 

7 pax hit the streets of Lexington for SL. Boy, was that fun. Everyone returned safely and one pax returned a few pounds lighter after offloading something nasty.

Perfect weather, perfect attitudes, here we go.

1 minute warning, disclaimer, no FNG’s, open in prayer.

Mosey a short distance and circle up.

SSH x 20 IC, Michael Phelps x 10 IC, TTT x 10 IC.

The Thang:

Line up at big pole 1 (thanks sprinklers). 5 burpees everytime at this pole.

Big pole suicides (6 poles total).

At each pole – 12 merkins, 12 squats, 12 mountain climbers (2ct). Hit these exercises at every pole…every pole for my main man who missed it the first time.

5 burpees every time you cross the sidewalk.

Here are the total reps completed:

300 merkins, 300 squats, 300 mountain climbers (2ct), 55 burpees…plus the running.

Not a bad 40 minutes.



Did not record them but some good stuff coming up:

Gauntlet begins 4/29

Man weekend – April something

Ville to Ville – 4/13 with Shine in the pulpit on 4/14

Prayer Requests:



Those fighting cancer in general 



BOM – close in prayer.

Devo: This week, we remember the most important events in history…our Saviour’s death and resurrection. It is the resurrection that gives us hope and allows us to deal with the grief and sorrow we encounter in this life. Without Him, all is hopeless. With Him, we have a living hope.
