With Explosion in India, YHC was left to his own devices to Q “The Criterion”…  The Criterion is a blend of a military Physical Fitness Test (PFT), an NFL combine…  Add in a pinch of the Murph and there you have it.  The workout is designed for maximum individual effort to get best time in a series of 4  fitness challenges.  And so it began with 21 PAX including two FNG’s in tow.  Below is a retelling:


Mosey out of the basketball court (cars still coming in hot) over to baseball parking lot.  At this point T-Rex pulled in, parked car and jumped into the day’s activities with s good dose of mumblechatter thrown his way on the afternoon arrival.  Make that 22 PAX 😉

  • Sun Gods x 15 forward / 15 reverse
  • Copperhead Squats x 20
  • Wind Mills x 20
  • Monkey Humpers x 20

The Thang / “The Criterion”

This is an OYO effort as mentioned before..  PAX encouraged to remember their individual times in order to #getbetter.  Some PAX may recall conducting this same workout back in the winter. To help know the times, a running stopwatch was posted at corner of  basketball court.   PAX broken up into 4 separate groups to begin.  YHC started timer and we were off like bottle rockets at the respective stations to begin “The Criterion”

  • Run 1 mile
  • Merkins x 50
  • Full Sit Ups x 100
  • Dead Hang Pull Ups x 15

Once PAX performs required exercises and reps, move to following station…  All PAX completed OYO formed up at basketball court where YHC began Plank-o-Rama until 6 was in.  Due to the savage beast atheltetes in F3 we had a few minutes to spare until 6MOM so YHC takes PAX over to the head shed for 30 Dips, 20 Derkins and 10 Merkins #armsgone
