Keeping with Tradition


YHC arrived to Huguenot Park with New Market already on scene. Flag planted and in the car position till 0525. Time to emerge from the warmth of the SUV and await the PAX to arrive…..17 Cold Steel Warriors in the gloom, waiting to see what YHC had in store. 0530……time to mosey.

COP= x15 Arm Circle, forward and backward. x 20 SSH, x 20 Imperial Walkers, x 20 Flutter Kicks, x 20 LBC’s, x 20 Plank Jacks. Enough……1 lap around the fields to increase blood circulation.

Triple Check= 1 Partner performs x 2 runs across the field. 2nd Partner, dips. 3rd Partner, WWII situps. Mosey to the basketball courts.

Dora-cides so partner up= 1 Partner runs suicides, 2nd Partner performs set exercises, switch and repeat. x 100, 2 count Freddie Mercuries. x 200 Imperial Walkers, single count. x 300 SSH.  Mosey to far corner of basketball court.

Ascending Four Corners= Corner 1, x 10 Merkins. Lunges to Corner 2= x 10 Merkins, x 20 Flutter Kicks, 2 count. Lunges to Corner 3, x 10 Merkins, x 20 Flutter Kicks, x 30 Plank Jacks. Lunges to Corner 4, x 10 Merkins, x 20 Flutter Kicks, x 30 Plank Jacks, x 40 WWII situps.

And Rosie politely stated, “0615.”

Mosey back to the flag. Number-ama, Name-r-ama, Announcements: Marmaduke is still collecting winter weather gear for donations.

YHC took us out.

NMS= YHC has been absent over the past several weeks for Thanksgiving with M’s family and hunting the white tail buck in Rockbridge. Everyday, YHC thought about the PAX and the workouts that had transpired. To say YHC missed this group is an understatement!! Glad to be back in the PAX and at the gloom!

Doozy, way to workout with just us two during the triple check.

Dr. Tryhard, YHC’s bad on missing the crucial fact you are a graduate of The Institute. Outstanding work and the privilege was all mine this morning. May God continue to bless your missionary work!

Rosie and short sleeves. Respect!

Gentlemen, hope is a powerful thing. The strength and hope you show YHC every morning is my blessing in this Christmas Season. Continue to shine the light and give hope to that one person who may need it!!

It was a honor to lead the PAX this morning. Thank you for following!

Only those who post understand!

Loud and Proud,

  1. Nice Q and welcome back Flatline. I knew sprints would be in order. We all knew sprints would be in order, and you didn’t disappoint. The double sprint on the Triple Check was brutal…especially while in the Dips rotation. And, trying to hold off Rosie in the suicides a few times (after Flange got me out to a head start of course) gassed me…done, toast.

    Great morning at the park, as usual.

  2. Awesome Q Flatline! The Dora-cides did me in, great partnering with Singer! Strong work men! Great catching up with Flange afterwards!
