Apparently the rain scared off many of the regulars at Local Honey – 7 Pax including YHC showed up on a particularly gloomy morning and here is what went down.

Mosey around the commerce parking lot to start a unique Warm-O-Rama.

Warm O Rama 


Who doesn’t love the class song TUBTHUMPER from Chumbawamba – this song encompasses everything that was just bad about the music during the late 90s – hard to believe it has been almost 20 years since it was released.

Everytime they yell “I get knocked down” we did a burpee.  While waiting for the next “I get knocked down” we did SSH.  The burpees came in flurries and the end is particularly painful.  27 total burpees to get things moving.

THANG – 4 Stations – 4 exercises

Disclaimer to the PAX – the sprints from Monday at the Grinder were hurting a few PAX legs, so went heavy upper body today – might have overdone it.

Four stations – each on the far corners of the Commerce parking lot

Station 1

  • 5 Burpees
  • 10 Partner Merkins (10 each)
  • 20 Squats
  • 20 Diamond Merkins

Station 2 

  • 5 Double Merkin Burpees
  • 10 Partner Derkins
  • 20 Lunges (10 each leg)
  • 20 Merkins

Station 3

  • 5 Triple Merkin Burpees
  • 10 Wheelbarrel merkins (10 each)
  • 20 Monkey Humpers
  • 20 Crucible Merkins

Station 4

  • 5 Catalina Winemixers
  • 10 Partner Merkins
  • 20 Calf Raises
  • 20 Wide Arm Merkins

We did one circuit with all four exercises, one circuit with the first and the third exercise and one circuit with just the second.  Needless to say, lots of merkins involved.

Then a familiar old friend reared her head for one more song.

SALLY! – Gone in Sixty Seconds is a really bad movie that I love – Nick Cage at his best, and this Moby song from the movie is a great way to end an upper body beatdown.  We modified and did squats for a bit before Hermie was inspired and we all went back down for some more Sally!


  • Low Slow Flutter X20

Overall, about 60 burpees and 180 merkins – nice job guys – as always, it is an honor.
