Ascending B.L.I.M.P.S.

Ascending B.L.I.M.P.S. 2020.01.30

Last workout of January 2020.  I posted this to SLACK yesterday and two guys posted their first workout of 2020; Snowball and Brick Cake.  7 total PAX joined me in the early, wet, gloom to get after it and start the day right.


I had an idea of spreading out the warm up by starting light, mosey a little, then add more reps and exercises.  I liked it and by the time we got to The Thang, it started to feel like the workout.

  • Huggers and light stretching as a few late comers pulled in.  there was lots of mumblechatter
  • SSH ic x20 then mosey out of parking lot….
  • Stop at next school entrance; 20 SSH and then 10 Tappy Taps ic.  Mosey onward…
  • Stop at Marshes Edge entrance; 20 SSH, 10 Tappy Taps, Bat wings (10 ech – 4 position) mosey to Round about for the Thang


I have done a B.L.I.M.P.S. routine (with various reps for each letter exercise) here before so I modified it into an ascending BLIMPS.

B – 5 Burpee

L10 Lunges ech leg

I – 15 Imperial Walkers

M – 20 Merkins

P – 25 Plankjacks

S – 30 Squats

Here’s how it worked.

B – 5 Burpee then mosey around traffic circle

B.L. – 5 burpee, 10 Lunges then mosey around circle

B.L.I -5 burpee, 10 Lunges, 15 Imperial walkers then mosey

B.L.I.M. – 5, burpee, 10 lunges, 15 IW, 20 Merkins then mosey around

B.L.I.M.P. – 5 burpee, 10 lunges, 15 IW, 20 merkins, 25 Plankjacks then mosey

B.L.I.M.P.S. – 5 burpee, 10 Lunges, 15 IW, 20 merkins, 25 pj, 30 Squats then mosey

BONUS:  I don’t think anyone wanted the bonus….

Repeat B.L.I.M.P.S. but with a Bear Craw around the traffic circle.  That SUCKED!

** Mosey back toward flags, stopping for a few cool down exercises**

Stop 1 (Marshes edge entrance)  25 Monkey Humpers in cadence.  I tried to stop at 20 but Snowball would not let me…This too also SUCKED.

Stop 2 (first entrance to school) 15 or 20 Flutter-Rosalita’s  Almost died and this too also SUCKED!

**Mosey back to flags for COT – I was spent!!!**

Naked-man Moleskin:

2020 is off and running.  January has come and gone.  I hope to keep my pace posting as much as possible to all AO’s, digging deeper within for strength, leadership, and commitment.  I look forward to deeper, stronger relationships with you all. 

Again, a huge Thank you to our new (first-time) AOQ’s; War Chicken – Jailbreak, Butterfinger -Ironman, Yogi -Renegade and for D2 to step up again and represent Sailor’s Warning.  We are off to a great start in 2020!
