No Boat, No Canoe, Just a Crusty Ole Boot


Seven strong and faithful redwoods comprised the PAX on another glorious Saturday morning.  After weeks of having a mixture of boot camp and KB workouts, we got back to basics with a good ole fashioned boot camp beatdown.  Here is how it went down:

  • Warm-up

    • 20 invisible jump rope
    • 20 Russian soldiers
    • 10 merkins
    • 20 crab cakes
    • 20 LBC
    • 25 APD
    • 20 American hammers
  • Mosey to the practice fields for 10 minutes of burpees
  • 20 PLTs x2
  • Mosey to football field for a Lindsay consisting of dips and Freddy Mercuries
    • 30 dips, cross the field, 10 FM
    • 25 dips, cross the field, 15 FM
    • 20 dips, cross the field, 20 FM
    • 15 dips, cross the field, 25 FM
    • 10 dips, cross the field, 30 FM
    • J-ville led planks while the PAX finished
  • Combo crawl bear/bear crawl across the field
  • Mosey over to the school for a triple check
    • Run the circle

COT with YHC sending us out with a word of Thanksgiving for our wives (MAttila is celebrating her birthday today) and thankfulness for the able bodies to be together.  Hopefully J-ville’s knee will continue to heal.

Moleskin – A reminder to the West End faithful that the new AO, Heartbreak Ridge, is open for business on Tuesday mornings at 0530.  Please join…looking at you Earthworm.  It is a great AO.

The day started with a lot of mumble chatter from the entire PAX.  The warm-up circle was feeding off of White Deer’s propensity to start a workout with lots of banter.  The level of mumble chatter diminished as the number of burpees rose.

As always, it was great be amongst this loyal PAX.  J-ville was strong despite a healing knee.  He humbles me with his ability to lead the PAX even when he is hobbled.  Cheetah, J-ville’s 2.0, was strong today.  The fartsack could not hold him captive this morning, which had to make J-ville proud.

Chum Bucket was his usual picture of quiet strength as evidenced by the fact that he is never a target of White Deer’s banter.  I always love the way he pushes us.  Nightcrawler continues to push himself.  J-ville quickly reminded us that he is going to rounding into prime shape soon with flying foul season in the rearview mirror.

As always, it was great to have the fellowship of these men.  We pushed ourselves today, and as I reminded the group, if they hated YHC during Gridiron today, well that makes two of us.  Iron sharpening iron is something to give thanks for.  Expect to have White Deer bring some KB action back to Gridiron for some portion of next week’s workout.

Enjoy your weekend men.
