The Shocker: A monthly matchup of you vs. the Concrete Beast. The Beast never changes. The question is, do you? One thing that definitely changed for the first Shocker of 2018 was the weather. Snowpocalypse was just hours from beginning, but the temperatures were already spring-loaded for maximum suck. It was so cold that human urine could freeze in just 45 minutes. Or so we hear. We can neither confirm nor deny these reports.
Conditions: 25 degrees. Cold. Clear skies. Urine also clear, though tinged slightly yellow.
The Thang: Circuits up and down the garage, and out Short Central Ave., cut over to Central, and back to the garage. Starting with 25 merkins and 25 LBCs, and decreasing by one each at three different stops per circuit. Once you get to 1 and 1, start heading back up. Rough estimate of .3 miles or so running/stairs per circuit. Ruckers follow same pattern, but begin with 15 merkins/squats. It’s a brutal 45 minutes with or without a ruck.
High Stick 6.1 circuits (327 merkins/LBCs)
Floppy 7 (339)
Pretzel 9 (415)
FNA 4 (289)
Cheetah 7.2 (352)
KY 6 R (185 merkins/squats)
City Slicker 6 R (185)
Flo 8.2 (390)
Now, let us assume that the person is normal and drinks good amount of water, so the freezing point will be around -5 degree centigrade.
