Merkin-Flavored Crazy 8 Romp

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Iron Horse (Founders Park)

15 PAX gathered at the IH amphitheater on a pleasant 67 degree weather morning to enjoy merkin-flavored crazy 8 romp around the field.   YHC was pleased after months of EHing his 2.0 [Antman] to get him out of bed for a F3 beatdown for the first time in many months.

Mosey to the great field for merkin-flavored Crazy 8s.  Eight exercise stations were spread along the perimeter of the field.   Stations were laid out in a figure 8 pattern with PAX performing 8 count reps at each station.  The reps increased by 8 after each cycle.  Bonus – 8 Burpees every time the PAX would cross at the center of the figure 8
