Danger Zone
PAX performs side straddle hop while Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins plays in the background. Every time the words danger zone are heard PAX does single squat then resumes side straddle hop. End result: 3 and a half minutes of SSH with 17 sporadic squats.

On your 6 – feet elevated like 6-inch hold – spell out the alphabet with your feet. All capital letters. IC

Bodies Hit the Floor
This is done to the song Bodies by Drowning Pool (3 min 21 sec). Start in plank position. When the song says “Let The Bodies Hit The Floor” do a Donkey Kick (Total:26). When the song counts (1, 2, 3, 4) do a Merkin . Always plank when not doing Donkey Kicks or Merkins and never let your Bodies Hit The Floor.

Duck & Weave, Goose back to AO
Pax line up as if doing an Indian Run, except this offers more pain. The Pax start duck walking and the six runs to the front by weaving in between each Pax member. Then he joins the rest of the Pax duck walking until everyone has weaved to the front at least once or until the Q’s legs burn out. When last PAX reaches front he yells Goose to end the Duck and Weave. We walked/moseyed remainder of way back to AO

Drill Instructors for 2 min
On the Q’s command, rapidly transition through any combination of
standing (“On your feet!”)
holding 6″ (“On your six!”)

and Merkins (“Down/Up”)
