15 men watched a glorious sunrise while getting some work done.  Here’s what we did:


  • Helicopters IC X 10
  • Michael Phelps IC X 10
  • Cotton Pickers IC X 10
  • Downward Dog IC X OYO
  • Upward Dog OYO

Mosey around Union Point and gather at swings where we partnered up for


4 stations completed in clockwise rotation

  • Station 1 – Swing Set Merkins – a swing seat in each hand, complete Merkin while partner holds feet.  10 Reps, then switch until a total of 3 sets each
  • Station 2 – clearing between 2 swing sets – LBC’s until time to rotate, more than expected
  • Station 3 – Swing Sets (south side) – pull ups X 10, 3 sets here to 30
  • Station 4 – clearing between park grill and east side swing sets – lunge walk towards river, backwards run to grill, repeat until time to rotate
  • Curb 7’s, west side was hand release burpees, bear crawl to east side curb for Irkins, crawl bear back.  Easily the PAX’s favorite section of the workout.
  • Swing Set abs – feet in seat and pulled to chest – 25  OYO, 6 PAX at a time went while rest did dips.
  • Raccoon Crawl – in front of convention center, hold plank for the 6.

Shoulders on fire, we mosey/sprinted back to field for:


  • American Hammers IC X 25
  • Low Slow Flutter IC X 20
  • Heel Touches IC X 20
  • Jameis Winston IC X 20
  • 5 hand release burpees OYO

YHC closed in prayer, thankful for many things.  Welcome back Dandelion, see you next year around this time.

McRib out, don’t be a LTO!


  • When: 06/21/19
  • QIC: Gander
  • The Pax: Tree Frog, Winthorpe, Blue Hawaiian, Faulkner, Black Dog, Goose, Peeping Tom, West Point, Bonnie, Oz, BitCoin, Unicorn, II Fingers, Pyro, Plan B, Double Dipper, Stye, Gander (YHC)

18 men posted this am to enjoy the glorious weather and fellowship. Union Pointe was blocked off to traffic, so everyone gathered in the convention center overflow lot, thus eliminating all running. No FNGs, so we jumped into with:


  • SSH 4CICx15
  • Hillbillies 4CICx15
  • Various shoulder stretches
  • Various Oz leg stretches
  • Downward dog OYO


Moseyed to convention center wall to warm up with a raccoon crawl the full length of wall. Plank for the 6. Moseyed back to parking lot, partner up and got one coupon per team to share as needed.

Next we lined up with our partner and put down the instructions and dice. The dice were thrown one at a time with Partner A exercise being determined by the first die and Partner B by the second die. Once Partner A was finished, flap jack. Al Gore for the 6. The breakdown of options were as follows:

Roll a:  Partner A does: Partner B does:

Goal to have each pax roll the die did not happen – but 10 cycles were completed. A quick audible to change the Block Get-Ups was changed to 6 reps instead of 8. Good suggestion Pyro!

Surprisingly, we did not do Lion Kings, Toddler Squats, Merkins or Curb Squats. But, a sufficient quantity of Overhead Presses and Block & Leg Raises made up for it.


  • Star Crunches 4CICx15
  • Box Cutters 4CICx15
  • LBCs 4CICx15

Stopped a few minutes early.

No announcements, YHC closed in prayer.

Thank you for letting me Q – always a challenge to keep it interesting and challenging. I hope everyone got something out of today.
