7 warriors distanced themselves from the longing embrace of the fartsack. Unlike Ulysses who used beeswax to ward of the song of the fartsack sirens, these southside men utilized the finest molded portland cement known to man. According to legend it went a little something like this.
Grab a cinder block of success (CBOS) and mosey to the practice field for a little COP.

Miracle Mile: Since this was such a crowd pleaser at 45MOM the day before and YHC felt obliged to share it with southside PAX.
- Loop 1 – Each man runs lap solo with CBOS.
- Loop 2 – Partner up. First man runs with two CBOS. Second man completes 1 burpee then runs to first man. Once first man is caught, men switch positions. First man drops CBOS and completes 1 burpee and pursues the second man who picked up both CBOS and started running. Do this until completion of lap.
- Loop 3 – Switch partners. Same as above but with 2 burpees.
- Loop 4 – Switch partners. Same as above but with 3 burpees.
Crimson 120: This is a modified Dora workout. Partner up and as a team complete the following prescribed exercises as a team. While one man is doing the exercises, the other is running across the field and back. Switcheroo until completion.
- 120 kettle bell swings
- 120 squats with CBOS
- 120 decline merkins on CBOS
- 120 two count flutter kicks
Elevens: Complete two exercises whose totals always add up to 11. Between each exercise, run the width of the field. Start with 10 overhead squat presses with CBOS, run across field and complete 1 burpee. Run back across the field to complete 9 OSP, run and complete 2 burpees. You get the idea.

Namerama, numberama, COT, Gumbo led us out.
The day starts and ends with TClaps to FNG Boudreaux. This was a monster effort brotha and I hope you are very proud of yourself. It’s supposed to be hard. If it was supposed to be easy we would make you pay for the workout. Before you decide if this is for you, make it out to 10 more. The title of the BB came from Boudreaux who stated post COT, “you guys are really intense”. Yes we are. In fact most people are if they can find the right things to put their energy into and be mindful of managing distractions. It’s a damn shame the world doesn’t get to see most people at their best or most intense. Welcome Gingivitis from the Palmetto state.

The CBOS are making tour stops in a few of the F3 RVA hoods. YHC has much appreciation for fellow pax members who help load the CBOS back into the green machine and who do not break said CBOS. See you next week DaVille!
Fun fact alert. Despite being on of the most storied institutions in our fair land, the statue of John Harvard on the campus of Harvard University is not actually John Harvard. At the time of construction, no one really knew what he looked like as were no surviving renderings of him. If he was like most college kids he probably had a Yeti sticker on his car and could drink 40 Nattie Lights in a sitting. None of the above hasn’t prevented a bunch of morons from rubbing it’s foot for good luck.
