PAX took turns farmer carrying two 60-lb sandbags for 70 yards. Rest exercises included Air Presses; LBACs; Sun Gods; Overhead Claps; Seal Claps; Carolina Slush Docks; Alternating Shoulder Taps; Squats; Jump Squats; Copperhead Squats; Lunge Steps; and Everest Steps. Repeat 3x for 210 yards of farmer’s carry per PAX.

PAX took turns running sandbags and a log from corner to corner of a 35-yard square. Sundry rest exercises from the list above while waiting for the next coupon.

PAX passed a sandbag from PAX to PAX. Then each did a burpee. Repeat-o for more fun.

In “The Comfort Crisis,” Michael Easterbrook discusses the benefits, both physical and mental, of doing challenging things. He talks of the Misogi challenge – the practice of taking on big challenges that take one of his or her comfort zone. Doing something bold (or even CSAUP) resets body and mind. This year, do something that scares you. Challenge yourself.
