Line up where starting line of track curves off (near the big anchor).

With partner, take turns doing reps and running to pull up bar to do 2 pull-ups.

100: burpees

150: jumping lunges (we had to call for time around here, didn’t do merkins)

200: merkins (start w a set of derkins, then merkins, irkins, and knee merkins as needed)

Wait for six: flutter w weight over chest.


Side Dips. Groiners. Flutter. Gas Pumps. Rinse/repeat. (We did two rounds, stop for time)

Listening. My wife really enjoys experiences and time away, and I really enjoy projects and accomplishments. I was talking to my wife about a great idea I had to build a garage behind our house. She was not pumped, and said, “if you keep planning projects to keep working on our house, we will never get away and actually do anything.”

Spend time with those you love or those you disagree with most. Have a focused conversation about what you value and be willing to sacrifice your priorities.


I saw the first part of this workout in a men’s health article. Much love to Farmer.
