Glad, I did not eat a lot for dinner!


4 men arose from the fart sack to the emerging dawn to see what YHC had in store for SOT this morning.  0530….let’s go! Mosey to parking lot across from the football field.

COP……x 15 Arm circles (10 small, 5 big). Forward than backwards. x 10 Don Quixote’s, x 10 Helicopters, x 15 Imperial walkers, x 14 Box cutters, x 13 Flutter kicks. And we were done!

Triple nickel….starting at the bottom of the hill at the parking lot, perform 5 merkins and run to the top of the hill, near the school buses and perform x 5 (2 count) mountain climbers and back down the hill. Repeat 3 times. Mosey to football field.

Crossing the Field……..Partner up. Partner 1 runs to the other end of the football field and back to his partner. Partner 2 performs x 10 SSH and bear crawls across the football field. Partner 1 meets partner 2. Switch and repeat until football field is crossed. But the PAX needs to go back across the football field. So instead of SSH, WWII situps it is. Repeat but exercise is WWII situps, x 5!

1 lap around the track…..social lap for PAX members!!

SUPER 21…such a great exercise…….1 merkin, 1 WWII situp. 2 merkins, 2 WWII situps, 3 merkins, 3 WWII situps….keep going all the way up to 21. Mid exercise, Ponch states, “Glad I did not eat a lot for dinner last night.” Almost merlot for YHC’s Q!! YHC thought this would take up the rest of SOT time this morning, but PAX finished with 3 minutes to spare.

Mosey to stairs for a trip up and back down. And one more trip up and than mosey back to the Flag!

Number-ama, Name-r-ama, Announcements: Puppy Pile this Saturday at 0705. CSAUP in October if interested, more to come! HDHH tonight, see backblast.

YHC took us out!

NMS…..Tobit, way TO CRUSH merkins this morning. Sugar Sock asked, “Is anyone else on their knees yet?” Copy…everyone but Tobit! Ponch, great comment mid way through the exercise!!

Ponch-great to meet you this morning. I won’t say keep posting because you drove from Tuckahoe this morning to southside!! Perfect!

Sugar Sock and Tobit, awesome to work out with SOJ regulars that YHC has not seen in awhile! Summer is busy, for sure but fantastic way to start YHC’s day!!

The strength shown by the PAX members is truly awesome and I am humbled in leading!! There is no other way to start a hump day than by posting!!

Only those who post understand!!

Loud and Proud,

  1. Flatline – Great Q, and it was good to see you again, brother! Between your vacation and the summer tour, I feel like it has been a month or more.
    One correction – on the triple nickle, you threw burpees at us, not merkins. Strong start!
    Tobit, way to crush everything.
    While we moseyed back to the flag, I got the familiar question “Does it ever get easier” from Ponch, to which I gave the familiar, cliche, but true answer: No sir, it doesn’t. You just get stronger and faster. Ponch, strong work man. Great to see you out this morning. Have a great day guys.

  2. Nice Q, Flatline! Great to see you this morning….it’s definitely been a while.

    Super 21…not so super! I’m thinking going backwards from 21 would make it easier to stomach…although I realize we’re not in the business of making things easier.

    Ponch, great to see you SOJ this morning! Way to push hard!

    Sugar Sock, glad you’re feeling better. You wasted no time getting back out (respect!).

    I would like to say it was good fun, but I haven’t been hitting enough bootcamps regularly to enjoy the beatdown yet. However it was good meeting the Southside folks and starting off the day with an encouraging prayer.
