A Pax of 13 delayed celebrations of our Nation’s birthday until after a fun beatdown.  Well-distanced and ready to go, we started with: SSH x 15, Cotton Pickers x 15, Windmills x 15, Imperial Walkers x 15, Merkins : Air Presses 1:5 x 5.      THANG: Mosey to the front of the Convention Center for: Raccoon Crawl, LBC x 50, Dirty Hookups x 25, Freddie Mercuries x 25, BTW 10 count x 13 Pax.  Mosey back to the Point and partner up: One man runs halfway around the loop and back, while the other performs the exercise: Merkins – Sprint, Derkins – Mosey, Step-Ups – 80% (and this is where the confusion set in; after some debate with Faulkner about decimals we dropped the math and just ran), Dips- Mosey, Squats- Sprint; after a 10 count, we lined up spaced out and held Al Gores while each Man Bear Crawled 30 yards and back.  Much mumble chatter about each Man’s style, form and firmness of their six, Oz’s peculiarly slow pace while the quads burned, Roboto’s, well, six, and then all of a sudden it happened: a neon yellow  Pyro was setting a blistering pace and with a grunt, finished with what looked like a flying burrito just short of the finish line.  Not to be outdone was McRib who, half-man, half beast had grass and debris (possibly smoke) flying from his soles.  At this point yhc started to think that this line-up exercise was more for his amusement than planting, growing, serving small workout….Anyway, we then held plank while each Man crab walked the same layout with far less drama.     MARY: To the tunes of Miley Cyrus (most requested), James Brown (shoutout to Cochrane and Memorial Day 2017)  and Toby Keith, we did Box Cutters x20, LBCx50, WWI x 20, Freddie Mercuries x25, Travoltas x 10, and 10 Burpees to finish strong.

Ended in Prayer for our Community, Nation and World, thanking God for the Brotherhood.

Thank you guys for the laughs and motivation.  Stay safe and have a great weekend.

No, those were not rain drops on YHCs face.  They were tears of joy in appreciation for the 9 Pax that posted this morning in the Gloom at The Point.  Rain did fall from time to time, but once you are wet, you’re wet, right?  No shelter required.  Gathered in grassy area near flagpoles.  Hard Start @ 0530 with Mission Statement and Disclaimer given by YHC.

A spry, socially distanced and responsible PAX of 13 reported for a peaceful beat down courtesy of a beardless Bomble.  To order the above shorts, contact Unicorn.  No FNG’s, no fevers above 100.4, only a few dry coughs, and following Governor’s orders, we got down to business.

Warm Up: SSH x 20, Cotton Pickers x 20, Windmills x 20, Imperial Walkers x 20, Merkin/Air Press 1:5 x 5.

Thang: Mosey to Convention Center for: Racoon Crawl, LBC x 50, Dirty Hookups x 20, BTW 10 count x 13 Pax.  Mosey back to meeting area, partner up for: Merkins while partner runs, Dips/run, StepUps/run, Squats/run, Derkins/run.  All up over 1.5 miles run.  Circle Up (which was difficult for most), then hold Al Gores while each Man BearCrawled around circle.  With Burning quads, we switched to Plank while each Man Crab Walked around the circle.  Pyro loves Bear Crawls and modified to do it again.  McRib maintained his title of fastest on all fours.  With the PAX ready we transitioned to:

Mary: Box Cutter x 15, Low Slow Flutter x 15, Freddie Mercuries x 30.

Ended in Prayer for our community and ourselves, No announcements.

Always a pleasure to lead and thank you to the PAX for the motivation.

Boat Races

  • The Pax: Pyro, McRib, Plan B, Kevorkian, Winthorpe, Double Dipper, Bitcoin, Faulkner, Black Dog

at 5:09 I got a call from Unicorn for a fill in Q.  I know it was 5:09 because my alarm goes off at 5:10.  Checked the radar and seeing no rain, headed out to lead a hearty group of 9 for a brief warm-up then to the thang.  We moseyed to the center of the drawbridge where we partnered for 100 Durkins, 150 Merkins and 200 Urkins in rounds of 25 while the partner rested by sprinting the draw, doing 10 squats and jogging back.  Finished with some monkey humpers then a final sprint off the bridge.  With time to spare we found the wall at the front of the Convention Center for dips, step-ups and a raccoon crawl then back to union point for Mary.

Pleasure to lead as always.

As a shout to Pyro, who has kept the Pax moving during the pandemic, we did the scheduled virtual workout set for today, celebrating The Last Dance.  With no FNGs, we jumped right in:

Warmarama. 1 lap around the square, then B-U-L-L-S:  5 Burpees, 10 Up-downs, 15 Lunges (each leg), 20 tempo LBCs, 25 Side straddle hops.  Rinse and repeat and we were good and warm.

Thang.  A series of exercises consisting of 1 burpee, 2 ranger merkins, 3 toddler squats, 4 plank jacks, and 5 LBCs, followed by a lap.  Then increase each time, so 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 one lap; then 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, one lap; 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, one lap…  Goal was 10, 20, 30, 40, 50. Some of the pax got to 9, most of us made it to 8.

Mary. C-H-A-M-P-S:  Chilcutt plank x 50 secs, 40 High knees, 30 American hammers, 20 Wide merkins, 10 Plank jacks IC, 50 Side straddle hops.

Excellent work, and we retract anything nice we said about Pyro. We counted, named, and closed in prayer. An honor to lead. Wash your hands!
