OK, first, disregard the line in the photo where I drove off and forgot to turn off the workout on my watch. If you totally ignore that, we sort of painted the town red or maybe just an orangish hue.
When setting up the cones in the big parking lot by the school, I had completely forgotten that today was PIZZA DAY at Holy Trinity. About 30 seconds into COP, the pizza man parked his big box truck right in our way and ran said truck for the entire workout. I know ABH Zartan was itching to head lock the man, but to no avail. He seemed more happy burning lung darts (Old Bay’s term) and checking Insta-Face (Coach Belichick’s term). Regardless, we weren’t going to let that ruin our fun.
Today’s workout paid homage to Vincent’s VQ at The O. Vincent is a beast, and he came out swinging. I’ve always thought it was one of the best beatdowns I’ve been a part of, so why not run it back a second time. Hope you don’t mind V…

First things first, there were four sets of cones. Everyone grabbed a coupon and met me on the end line.
Start with a Burpee Suicide
Burpee Suicide Defined: Run to the first cone do 4 burpees then run back. Run to the second cone and do 3 burpees then run back, run to the third cone and do 2 burpees, then run back, run to the fourth line do one burpee and then run back.
Easy enough, right? Let’s add to it…
Round #1: Complete the following Merkins (x20), Coupon Curls (x20), Coupon Rows (x15), Coupon Overhead Press (x15) then do the Burpee Suicides. WOOF!
Round #2: Complete the following Coupon Merkins (x20), Coupon Squats (x20), Coupon Swings (x15), Coupon Overhead Press (x15) then do the Burpee Suicides all over again.
Round #3: Complete the following Derkins (x20), Coupon Curls (x20), Coupon Dead Lifts (x15), Coupon Overhead Press (x15) then, you guessed it, do the Burpee Suicides!

What Vincent’s original workout lacked in variability, it made up for in brutality. Next we rinsed and repeated…
Round #4: Complete the following Merkins (x20), Coupon Curls (x20), Coupon Rows (x15), Coupon Overhead Press (x15) then do the Burpee Suicides. DOUBLE WOOF!
Round #5: Complete the following Coupon Merkins (x20), Coupon Squats (x20), Coupon Swings (x15), Coupon Overhead Press (x15) then do the Burpee Suicides all over again.
Round #6: We ran out of time, you owe me one.
COP and Moleskin:
YHC had a lot of fun Qing at the Mutt! T-claps to Old Bay for rucking to the workout this morning and T-claps to Zartan for rucking at The O then making the drive to post at Mutt. We said our intentions and asked the Sky Q for strength to be the men we need to be for our family, friends and community.
