Keeping things Simple. This is the same workout that The Plague led the pax through at the launch of The Pit on July 20, 2019 – and Firewalker’s first ever post. Honestly, I don’t remember much of that day, nearly two years prior. I do remember my ears ringing, and my world spinning. I remember thinking this was stupid and hard. Thankfully, there were two FNG’s today – I can only hope I was able to pass along the misery! A special welcome to FNG’s Borat & Simmons!
WARM-A-RAMA – The pax mosey’d over to the open grassy area near one of the football fields for a quick warm up.

Following Warm-a-Rama, pax were encouraged to find a partner on the mosey to the other side of the lake. Once we arrived, instructions were given and the fun began.
PARTNER UP. PARTNER 1 WILL START AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL WHILE PARTNER 2 RUN TO OTHER SIDE OF THE GRASSY KNOLL, DOES 5 BURPEES AND RUNS BACK. SWITCH UNTIL ALL REPS ARE COMPLETED.
200 BIG BOY SIT-UPS
RINSE & REPEAT
It should be noted that counting beyond 10 is a challenge for many pax – makes for fantastic mumblechatter – and the sunrise was AMAZING! After the THANG we mosey’d to the open grassy area by the shelter for a find post-thang. Pax were encouraged to sing aloud the song which came to mind while we ran. I’m beyond proud of how the pax embraced the opportunity to sing along. I was only slightly disturbed by the songs they sing in their heads while they work out.
THE THANG AFTER THE THANG – DEMONSTRATING SHARED LEADERSHIP, VARIOUS PAX WERE ASKED TO LEAD THE EXERCISE.
