As in normal fashion YHC arrived early to Dogpile planted the shovel flag and waited in anticipation for the rest of the pax to arrive. YHC was thrilled to see such a good turn out. Big thanks to Circle K for being the official time keeper today as YHC no longer has his cheap work out watch and has learned not to carry his phone along during the workout!! Congrats to the pax for attacking the pull up bars (Splinter, Rosie, Fudd took it to those bars – atta way fella’s)!

Love hill was about as dark as I have ever seen it (even with Sippy’s light). Very glad all of us made it up safely. Chum we gotta teach some of the pax what a walk out merkin is ๐Ÿ™‚ Love Hill is no joke so props to everyone for taking the hill!

Discount Double Check : All I have to say is – Wow way to push it Aisle 5 – I love the effort my man! You lead the way helping all of the pax finish that exercise strong..

Okay so the Staying Alive did not really work as I had envisioned …. To many Basketball players there this morning ๐Ÿ™‚ I am determined to bring this exercise back so y’all will see it again. YHC will prepare more time for demo and instruction. Chum I’m so glad to know there is another former wrestler in the group besides me – we will teach the pax Staying Alive together…

Welcome Olsteen, and Rockfish we hope to see you both again soon.

Great workout guys. I’m blessed to be part of such an exceptional group of men. I wish you all a wonderful Holiday season and I will see you out there in the gloom – (That you can bet on)


Announcements : Offshore could use some help moving a piano – yep I said piano…. So contact him if you might be able to assist this coming Wed.

Normal work outs – Monday – Thurs. Bring a kettle bell or dumbbell Monday – Bleeder is going to bring the pain @ The Punisher!

Saab – VQ on Thursday – Christmas Eve – looking forward to it Saab.
