Disclaimer:  I’m not a trained exercise professional.  You know the drill.

10 min warmup

25 SSH

10 TTT

15 Imperial Walkers

10 AC (forward)

10 AC (backward)

Mosey to Garage:

Reverse BLIMPS, each circuit has each exercise on each of the 4 floors of the parking garage. After top, take stairs back to first floor. Starting at bottom floor, do the following on all floors:

Circuit 1: 30 squats

Circuit 2: 25 plank jacks

Circuit 3: 20 merkins

Circuit 4: 15 imperial walkers

Circuit 5: 10 lunges (each leg)

Circuit 6: 5 Burpees

Mosey back to circle


30 flutters (keep them legs straight!)



  • F3/FIA Family Fun 5K Jingle Bell Run Christmas Eve morning at 9:00 am at Jarvis Creek.  Bring the whole family:  cooler of beer, mimosas, and fun for all!
  • P200 in 90 days.  Let that sink in.

Prayers:  many unspoken.  Pray for 19 yr old murdered on Hilton Head on Sunday 12/16.  Very sad.


  • QIC keeps realizing that these workouts look really good on paper but often fights back the merlot at the end.
  • Burpees are the starting exercise in BLIMPS for a reason; much harder at the end

As always, an extreme pleasure to lead this great group of men in the Gloom.

Ambien, out.
