The Thang:

Started with an art project       The PAX were instructed to circle up in a plank position, relatively close together. Bo Knows was too busy playing with the fidget toy (a.k.a a new Garmin watch). 4 cinders were handed out. On the call of Down we all do a Merkin. If there's a cinder in front of you, do the merkin with 2 hands on it. We then move the cinders half a position clockwise. Meaning, the cinder in front of me will now between me and the man to my left. On the call of Down I'll do a Merkin with my left hand on the cinder and he'll do with his right. We'll then move the cinders another half position, so now it's exactly in front of the man to my left. It took a few moments but we got into a rhythm and completed a full circle (so should be about 20 merkins). The result was a very nice circle on the ground.
First Class       lined up in the parking lot. Big Boys at the starting line, run to the other end for some variation of Merkins, run back for Squats and air chair for the 6. We started each lesson together
  1. 10 Big Boys, 12 Clap Merkins (Clerkin), 10 Squats
  2. 15 Big Boys, 12 Jumping Spiders, 15 Squats
  3. 20 Big Boys, 12 Superman No Cheat Merkins, 20 Squats
  4. 25 Big Boys, 12 Donkey Kick Merkins, 25 Squats
The Donkey Kick merkins were an improvisation since YHC forgot the lesson plan. However, with 58 Merkin variations in the Exicon there's always something else... At the end of the 4 lessons we had a test. 4 Corners on the field with the above merkin variations. 10 count each exercise (one type per corner).
  Second Class Same format, but this time Bonnie Blairs (all single counts) and LBCs. The Merkins variations are also single counts.
  1. 10 Bonnie Blairs, 12 Prime Time Merkins, 10 LBCs
  2. 15 Bonnie Blairs, 12 The Bruce..., 15 LBCs
  3. 20 Bonnie Blairs, 12 ...and the Cait, 20 LBCs
  4. 25 Bonnie Blairs, 12 Spiderman Merkins, 25 LBCs
Prime Time - one legged Merkin. change which leg is up each time. The Bruce and the Cair - a Merkin done with your legs crossed over at the ankles. The Bruce - switch legs at the top position of the Merkin. The Cait - switch at the bottom position. Alas, we did not have time for a test.
Finals - Partner up at the flag. One person planks and the other planks with their legs on the partner's back, followed by 10 Derkins. Switch. Mary: 20 IC Flutter Kicks and 10 IC Dollies.


Convergence tomorrow!
