To celebrate the second week of the NCAA basketball tournament, the PAX split into two teams, then rotated through a 16-exercise bracket made of four regions:

  • Run East bracket, then 16 x:
    • Burpees (no one likes the one seed in the East)
    • LBCs
    • Star Jumps
    • Gorilla Crawl
  • Run West bracket, then 16 x:
    • Cinder-Block Squat Thrusts
    • Cinder-Block Curls
    • Cinder Block Overhead Presses
    • Bear Crawl (no cinder block)
  • Run South bracket, then 16 x:
    • Merkins

THE MARY: PAX-led core exercises.


As the Qs’ alma mater learned during last year’s NCAA tournament, as you move through life, there are times you lose.  To a 16-seed.  Coming back is difficult, but can be done. Try to focus not on the game you lost, but on the games left to play.
