12 PAX for a Ying Yang workout with Logger and Cosmo co-Qing.  Logger took the warmup and beatdown while Cosmo took the cool down and stretch.  All PAX worked hard and were glad to see the cool down and stretch as Logger was ‘smoking’ the Pax with a very solid beatdown.  Mumblechatter was acceptable, YHC always appreciates grumbling during the stretch…means is working.

Overall great time and great performance put in by all PAX.

Keep it going and keep giving it away!

Always a privilege,

Moleskin – Beater was going to Q and kick our butts but sick family members needed his attention. He text me a general overview of what he was thinking. It looked like a bad choice with a great theme so we did it. Modifications with each of the attending PAX responsible for choosing an exercise. There was a lot of tension when Clubber was choosing what we were doing 50 of – he made a smart decision by splitting it up into 2 groups of 25. We welcomed Thumper to the group, driving all the way up from Greenwood.

Thank you men!

16 PAX posted on a beautiful morning for some compound exercises lead by YHC.  The morning started with something about Headlock’s girlie short shorts and leggings (ask him) and ended with everyone getting a pretty decent beat down.

The virgin run of the Mountain warm up was fun (others are welcome to it if interested) and got everyone warmed up.  The Island Pyramid worked to YHC’s expectations with the exception of the Prison Burpees…Q needed and received some help (and deserved ridicule) for jacking up the cadence multiple times…HOWEVER….all got in some good reps and were ready for the next exercise…or so they thought.

Chicken Peckers with elevated feet are ALWAYS fun and spur much mumble chatter (very suitable today) and the 5 rounds proved painful enough   for everyone…although Q wondered if it was hard enough as some were still ‘moving it’ pretty well back to the cars.

Great to have One Direction back while he’s in town as well as Kindergarten Cop and Snooki.

NICE WORK to men….keep posting….keep getting better…..keep passing it on.

Always a privilege,

Mid-60s, Overcast w/light rain

PAX:  Maize, Nomad, Snooki, Marshal, Knee High, Aggie, Alamo, Tulip, Thin Mint, Buck Shot (FNG), Cosmo (Q)

11 PAX posted for a rather soggy ruck and completed 3 MILES with 4 stops for exercises (nice work men).  Pace was awesome and allowed for discussion and catching up along the way.  The Cable Walk was tough in many ways, but will help get us in shape for more pull-ups.  Always good to see Logger who joined us for some Cable walking as a break from his run.  Mumblechatter was sufficient, especially during the core workout (something about wet grass) and YHC was happy to hear it.  The end-of-the-ruck trot seemed to be a PAX favorite as well.

Welcome Buck Shot (FNG)…nice work Aggie for EH’ing him!

Keep passing it along!

Good work by ALL!

Always a privilege,

That’s right guys that was 35 burpees and you hardly even noticed.

I can’t tell you guys how much it means to me after 2 years to see such a large group of guys show up it’s great to see the impact we’re making on our own men and we need to keep pushing to reach out to those who need it.

Q: Cornwallis
Pax: Beefsteak, Cosmo, KneeHigh, Marshall, Nomad, Khaki, Maize, DC, Tulip, State, Logger

1 mile run to Inlow Park
20 sets of: 5 pull ups, 10 Mericans, 15 squats
1 mile run back to the Hill

COT- Each man named a fallen soldier instead of their own name.

Moleskin:
-Great job this morning guys! Everyone worked really hard and it was fun doing the murph together.
-I think the highlight was going down the twisty slide at the end and watching everyone bounce off of the rubber ground.
-That hill running back will getcha! Nice job Beefsteak taking off and leading the pack with blazing speed!
-I think more pull-ups should be in our future so we aren’t suffering so much on those. Keep getting after it! Keep EH’ing every man you see. Keep posting!

AYE!

15 PAX posted in the gloom for a different kind of beatdown. Coming off of a story about a Boston Marathon runner who dedicated each mile to a different person, reading Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins and learning about the 40% Rule, Memorial Day coming up, and a long wait before a chance to Q, I put together a special (& sadistic) downPAINment for Tuesday 5/21/2019.

Moleskin:

Today was hard, but we got WAY stronger. Glad to have another Marine join us with the addition of FNG now named Clubber. Unfortunately time ran short and we skipped the calf raise and pull up portions of the beat down, but there is always next Q for that. Looking forward to the team battle, even though it is postponed until June.

Until next time,

Z
