In some sports, 10 is a perfect score. Gymnastics and diving are such sports. So I got to thinking, what would be the “perfect” workout? What would be a “10”? How about:

10 sets of
10 reps of
10 exercises?

That will give you 1,000 reps.


Warm up in the parking lot:

  • SSH IC X 15
  • Cotton Pickers IC X 15
  • Windmills IC X 15

Being just a bit devious, I had packed a bunch of 5# coupons in the back of my truck. Tails arrived just in time to join us as we picked a coupon for our mosey to the upper parking lot where we we proceeded with…

The Thang

OYO, do 10 reps of:

1. Over Head Squat with Coupon
2. High Knees
3. Butt Kickers
4. Imperial Walkers (both sides = 1 rep)
5. Jump Squats

Hold Deep Squat until all Pax completed.

6. Pickle Pointers with Coupon
7. Freddie Mercuries (both sides = 1 rep)
8. Hollow Body Rockers
9. Nut Crackers
10. Merkins

Plank until all Pax completed.

Rinse/Repeat for 10 sets = 1,000 reps.

Then the workout got serious.

We just happened to be right next to the pull up bar (by my design Emoji) so we could see how much more we could squeeze out of our hour. Dividing into 3 groups so we could rotate through the bar, we did two sets of five reps of:

  • Turkish Get-ups (it’s a thing. Look it up) with coupon (5 right side, set 1; 5 left side set 2);
  • Yurpees (Burpees with a clapping Merkin};
  • Knees to Elbows from the pull up bar (more murderous on the core and still delivering stress to the lats).


I wish I could come up with a more challenging workout for the young bucks, but this is the best I could do.
