Masonry 101 at WDOG


16 aspiring Brick Masons took on WDOG this morning to perfect their skills at the art of Masonry.  As soon as conditions became 70 and sunny at 5:30am, YHC’s tailgate was dropped and coupons were acquired.  Let’s Mosey!

Mosey around to the far end of the Carillon field for:

COP w/ coupons!  All in cadence

Arm Circles  x 5 big/5 small forward/backward

Helicopters x 10

DQ’s x 10

Russian Soldiers x 10

Copperhead Squats x 10

Hand Release Merkins (HRM’s) x 10

Place coupons down on ground to give them a rest.


Mosey to Amphitheater for:

Escalating Incline Merkins

1 on first step, 2 on second step, increase by one all the way to 18 on top step.

De-escalating Dips

18 on top step, 17 on next step, decrease by one all the way to the bottom.


Mosey back to Carillon field and reacquire your pair of coupons for:

The BEAST with coupons in hands

6 Rounds, 6 BIG CONES, 6 exercises at each cone.  Plank up in between rounds to wait for the Six.

Round 1: WW2’s

Round 2: Scorpion Dry Docks

Round 3: V-Ups

Round 4: Dive Bombers

Round 5: Capt. Thors

Round 6: Diamond Merkins


Mosey back to Shovel Flag for:

COT, Numberama, Namearama and YHC took us out.



CSAUP is upon us.  Think about tapering, sleep schedule, etc, etc.

Slurpee has Breaking Bread next Sunday, April 22nd.  YHC is helping, but we need at least one more, please.

2.0 friendly Roller Coaster this evening at the top of Hillcrest at 5:30pm.

Please keep Lab Rat’s father in your prayers!!



Since CSAUP is upon us, YHC thought it would be a good idea to change things up a little and rest the lower body and concentrate on the upper body.  To make things more interesting and somewhat fun, YHC decided to incorporate coupons into most of the workout.  YHC had planned some Rusty Cage fun, but time ran out.  Maybe next time!

There was much mumblechatter from Lab Rat and from a (sans gloves) TYA.  During the Beast, YHC overhead a couple PAX trying to decide whether a certain number was still considered a prime number.  Not sure what that was all about.  Whoever was running the Beast right by the cones was absolutely “killing it”!  Correct YHC if YHC is wrong, but YHC thinks it was Circle K.  YHC was trying to keep up with him to no avail!

YHC also heard some discussion about Hardywood’s new group of Groupies at No Toll.  YHC did not get a chance to get the details, but  YHC is sure that it was a funny story!

YHC could hear one or two of the PAX hitting their coupons together throughout the morning trying to play a tune.

YHC would like to let TYA know that the bricks are available for his next project or for repairs to MARV’s house.

Way to work this morning gentlemen!  That was impressive!

YHC will see some of you this evening and the rest of you at CSAUP!

Have a great Wednesday all!!

    Shoulders and back – wow feeling it – excellent Q Kubota – certainly Swirly approved 🙂
    Way to work guys. Been awhile since we had some brick coupons – think last time we did that was a Fuudski Q.
    Might have been one of our last cool mornings..
    See y’all in the gloom..

  2. Enjoyed the masonry tutorial Kubota! Never had hand web fatique before. Hardywood loves Ron White. Here’s hoping Swirly is correct. Last cool morning until late fall is in order.

  3. Excellent Q Kubota. I had to ask one of co workers to type this, as my upper body has shut down for the day

  4. Somewhere Upchuck is pissed he missed a brick workout. And thanks Kubota for shortening the field for the beast to save the pax legs, ABT!

  5. Great Q Kubota. You were killing it today. The COP with the bricks set the tone for today. Who knew that helicopters could be so brutal!

  6. Correct on Ron Washington. His best quote “That’s just the way baseball go.”

    Meh on Ron White. If you funniest bit is “tater salad” you are one watermelon away from being Gallagher.

  7. Big Tennessee on

    It has been a while since I’ve done a merkin escalator to start a workout. Not sure what you would call what I was doing at the end of the workout, but it certainly wasn’t a diamond merkin, and I’m pretty sure a dolphin may have been harmed. Well done, Kubota. Gonna be sore.
