The Thang: 

Flora 1-2-3
PAX partnered and couponed up.
100 Derkins (P1 does 10 derkins while P2 rests in decline plank, flapjack to 100)
200 LBCs (P1 does 20 LBCs with coupon while P2 rests on back with feet at 6″, flapjack)
300 goblet squats (P1 does 25 goblet squats while P2 rests in down squat position, flapjack)
Plank til all in.
10 bonus derkins to celebrate a Johnny-come-lately.

I’m up-he sees me-I’m down
PAX lined up with partners in a low crawl position. P1 says “I’m up”, jumps up and sprints 3-5 steps, says “he sees me”, hits the deck, says “I’m down.” P2 then repeats the routine, etc. PAX crossed from one end of the park to the other for ~260 yards. Mosey back to coupons.

Mosey up the trail to a cluster of benches where partners swapped 20 dips and 20 coupon curls. Rinse and repeat. Rinse and repeat.

Mosey to soccer field for Captain Thor smokefest.
1 BBS + 4 American Hammers, then 2:8, 3:12, 4:16.

Mosey to return coupons, running with coupons held over head.

Mountain climbers IC x15 (Lipton)
Hands of Time ~3 minutes (Bruce)


COT / BOM: For many of us, the holidays are a joyful time to relax and enjoy our families. For many other men, holidays are lonely and painful. YHC encouraged the PAX to look out for men in those situations and be hospitable during this season. Welcome the stranger, the outcast, the downtrodden.

Prayers for Bruce’s wife, Soybean’s mom, and Four Eyes’ dad.

Moleskin: It’s always nice to have visitors, both from the Levee and out of town.  The grass at the Berm is mean and unforgiving.
