The Merkin Man 2.0

Weather Conditions: 75° & 92% Humidity

It was a glorious morning ITG as 15 Pax came together, many of which have been away from the Shank for far too long.  As the HC’s came rolling in the evening prior, YHC knew we were all in for a great morning of fellowship, and that the workout plan needed to be modified due to higher volumes (always a good thing).  The plan was set and as always the delivery of instructions was weak, but that didn’t stop the Pax from putting in some solid work this morning.  As for the workout, here is how it went:

The Merkin Man
Count off to determine Merkin Man order.  One Pax will be doing Merkins at all times.  Pax #1 does their set of Merkins and calls out the number of the next Pax in the order, the next Pax responds with “Merkin Man”, does their set, and so on.   All other Pax do the set exercises below when not doing Merkins.
