Hate Hill


On a wonderfully cool and non-humid morning 6 Faithful gathered for a beatdown at the Dogpile,

The Thang:

COP: SSH (25x), LBCs (25x), Imperial Walkers (25x), Merkins (15x), Freddie Mercury (20x), Plank pushups (10x each arm).

Whamo springs:  One Pax throws frisbee–everyone sprints until Frisbee lands and does an exercise until reaching the disk.  Exercises included: Lunges, Crab Walks, Bear Crawls, Broad Jumps, Duck walks, Walkout pushups,

Jacob’s Bowl:  Run down hill, Bear Crawl Up, 1 x Burpee, repeat up to 7 Burpees.

Hate Hill–Aka, Love Hill starting at the top and ending at the bottom.  Partner up–one partner runs down then up hill, and the other partner does exercises down hill until they meet.  Flapjack.  Exercises were: Lunges, Duck Walks, and Broad Jumps.  Mosey to the pipe.

The Pipe.  Run up Pipe Hill and then do 3 sets of: Pullups (8x), Australian Pullups (10x), Merkins (20x)

Mosey to the flag



Strong work by the Pax today.  Aisle 5 continues to improve and made a particularly strong showing as did Blood Test who back for his second workout.  Swirly and Wilson also showed bursts of speed and almost caught the Frisbee during different pulls.  It was nice to have HoneyDo back from his vacation.

There was some mumblechatter surrounding the downhill lunges which were much tougher than expected.  There was also some discussion about bicep exercises, and YHC was happy to oblige with a pullup-heavy finish to the workout.  And, all in all we ran over 2.4 miles, most of it up and down hills.

  1. Well done Sippy! The walkout merganser tweaked something in my delt. Out of commission all day. Killer Q!

  2. Merganser–OK, we need to make up an exercise and call it that! Does your wife have any ideas?

  3. Sippy, I actually liked the hate hill thang. The upper body work is very much needed but oh so painful. Thanks for the great Q today.
