5 Pax Take to the Tundra for Inaugural Merkin Mania
In recognition of MLK Day, 5 Pax posted for an OTB beatdown dedicated to the many varieties of the Merkin. After a quick reminder of MerkinIn etiology — short for American push up — and clarification that it has nothing to do with a pubic wig, we got to work covering off on 6 different types of Merkins. Special shoutout to all Pax who made time to join the OTB beatdown on MLK 2020.
Warm Up — Side Straddle Hop (15); Abe Vigoda forward (12) and backward (15); Breakdancer Merkins (10); Cut a Flip (50 Merkins & Big Boys alternating after every 5; Mosey.
