On a crisp 22 degree morning with a cool breeze, 11 PAX took on the Cadet Lab Challenge and warmed up nicely. Epstein came in shorts, a T shirt and a sweatshirt to show us that it was not really that cold as he shivered through it. I think he did have some Hot Hands in his gloves though. YHC tried to help him out with every kind of merkin I could think of and in the end it really did not seem that cold. Here is how it went down:
25 SSH IC
20 Carolina Dry Docks IC
20 Copperhead Squats IC
25 Windmills IC
30 Sun Gods IC (15F & 15R)
Suicide Run Warm-Up
Some station work that went like this: 4 stations. The PAX divided up at different stations for Round 1:
Station 1: 25 Mountain Climbers, 25 Wojo Squats, then run to station 2
Station 2: 20 Crunchy Frogs, 25 Carolina Dry Docks, bear crawl halfway and then run to station 3
Station 3: 25 Dips, 20 Decline Merkins, then run to station 4
Station 4: 25 Plank Jacks, 20 Jump Squats, then run back to station 1 for Round 2
Station 1: 20 Merkins, 30 SSHs, then run to station 2
Station 2: 20 Monkey Humpers, 25 Windmills, bear crawl halfway and then run to station 3
Station 3: 20 Step Ups, 20 Wide Merkins, then run to station 4
Station 4: 15 Burpees, 20 Lunges, then run back to station 1 to Rinse and Repeat until time was called.
The PAX made it most of the way through another round before time was called. Sound familiar? THE THANG was the same as was used some time ago. It gets the job done and definitely warmed everyone up. Mosey back to shovel flag. Thanks to Butt Fumble, we now have an official Cadet Lab shovel flag. Thanks brother!
25 LBCs IC
15 Low Slow Flutters IC
20 Cindy Crawfords IC (10 on each side)
25 American Hammers IC
Run 70 yards up and back

Great job by the PAX today. It was great to see 11 guys out on such a cold morning. It was an honor to lead this group of men again.
