Merkins with a bit of Frisbee

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Iron Horse (Founders Park)

28 Pax un-ass the sack for an Independence Day celebration of sorts. With an extra 30 minutes of sleep, YHC decided to wake the PAX up with some fun, before the “Fun.”




  • SSH -> Just kidding -> Merkins, because this is America (10 IC)
  • SSH (10 IC)
  • Squats (10 IC)
  • Windmills (10 IC)
  • LBAC (10 IC, each way)
  • Imperial Walkers (15 IC)

Enough of that. It’s time to introduce the Burpee PT test. YHC first heard of this several months ago when following the GoRuck Heavy Heavy—it sounded like it would suck. Perfect. The full PT test is 100 burpees, 1 mile run, 50 burpees, 1 mile run—with a 32 minute time hack. Given YHC wanted the PAX to have some fun today, we cut it in half and called it called it “20 minutes of Hell.” Be warned, you will see the full PT test soon.

1/2 Burpee PT test (20 minute time hack):

  • 100 burpees
  • 1 mile run

With that silliness out of the way, it’s on to the real fun. The PAX were divided by AO (Iron Horse & Arrowhead) and balanced out a bit. It’s time for a game of Ultimate Merkin, I mean Frisbee. Every time the frisbee hits the ground—10 merkins. The PAX were not very good at ultimate frisbee, so the rep count was dropped to 5 each time the frisbee hit the ground. Arrowhead ended up winning—but everyone wins with merkins—250 total during the game.
