The Thang: Grab a block and return to Flag. The Minuteman workout is in honor of the Colonial Minutemen were civilian colonists who independently formed militia companies self-trained in weaponry, tactics, and military strategies, comprising the American colonial partisan militia during the American Revolutionary War. They were known for being ready at a minute’s notice, hence the name. The workout was a series of exercises done OYO for a period of one minute with a 20 second rest to prepare for next exercise. There were 3 exercises done in succession followed by a 1;30 “rest” where the Pax would run to a spot and return. This was done six times:
- Burpees, Slow Mountain Climbers, Iron Cross
- Merkins, WWI Situps, Squats w/ block
- Carolina Dry Docks, Damn Its, Monkey Humpers
- Up&Overs, Flutter Kicks, Curls for girls
- Overhead Press, Freddy Mercs, Tricep Extensions
- Grave Diggers, Box Cutters, Bent Over Rows.
Mary: Played the song R.E.S.P.E.C.T (2;30) where Pax is in plank and does Merkin every time “just a little bit” is heard. Held Al Gore until time up.
Moleskin: Pax was instructed to do all exercises correctly. It was not about how many, it was about getting the most out of every rep.
DEVO: Be prepared. Just like the Minutemen, it is important for HIMs to be ready for whatever comes our way. Just like the Wuhan Flu, you never know when something challenging is going to hit us. Be ready for it. Have a plan. Put an emergency fund in place, plan for that rainy day. Sort of like Major Dad’s advice to put together a Legacy Box. Do it!
