Mystery Themed Workout


Six southside regulars and a long, lost F3RVA tribesman of several different titles was called out of the sack to join in a simple, but difficult themed workout.


Mosey to field, circle up – 20 SSH, 20 Don Q, 20 hand release merks, 20 box cutters, 20 LBCs

Partner up – Catch me if you can – Partner 1 runs length of football field, partner 2 does 5 burpees and tried to catch Partner 1. Switch and repeat back to beginning. Decrease burpee by 1, repeat. Continue until 1 burpee, 10 football field sprints in total.

BLIMP – length of football field. 5 broad jump burpees, 10 lunges, 15 imperial squat walkers, 20 monkey humper walkers, 25 polar bear crawls, repeat until reach the end.

Burp Merk – increase merkins inside burpee up to 7 and back down.

Mosey to paved hill. Triple check – peoples chair, WWII situps, run to top of hill and back.

Mosey to tennis courts. Bearimeter – partner up, partner 1 bear crawls clockwise around three courts, partner 2 runs counterclockwise. Meet and switch, continue until back to start.

Mary – hot potato. flutters, Xs and Os, Merkins, american hammers, dollys, couple others YHC can’t recall.


Misery? The suck? Never let Singer Q again? What exactly is the theme? YHC mentioned in the opening and continued to quiz the PAX after each exercise. A hint was given during the triple check that it was a person, and the YHC believes Roper guessed correctly when asked ‘who is not here’ at the end. YHC, Rosie, Gumbo and Bullseye received a text on the way home from No Toll that DK threw his back out (not chasing chickens mind you) and needed a replacement Q for SOT. Thus the DK themed workout was constructed based on a number of exercises YHC knows are DK staples, and also YHC skimmed through a few recent DK backblasts.

Great job folks! That Catch Me really took a lot of effort out of the gate. Combined with a fun race out of the third round of triple  check, we got the blood pumpin. Rosie and Tobit were flying in that Catch Me,  as was my partner Gumbo who caught McRib a few times. Speaking of, welcome back McRib! Who, in his former namesake of Kevin Bacon, in true fashion walked up and knew Bullseye by name and character. Classic. See you in 6-12 months McRib! Well done everyone, thanks for letting me lead.

Happy hour Wednesday, December 19th on the southside at Cap Ale House. Southside only people need to know, unlikely any of the northsiders will cross the moat!

  1. Great Q Singer. The reason none of us could decipher the theme is that we couldn’t think straight after round 2 of the Catch me if you can…Holy Cow that was a gasser. Loved the competition in the Triple Check. Good times.

    Also, loved having Bacon McRib back out in the gloom with us where he belongs. I hope he won’t be such a stranger.

    Happy Hump Day men!

  2. Wedding Singer on

    Felt good to dust off and sign up for a Q. Well deserved heckling as I forgot, for just a 1 count, that I also do the 1-2-3s during the warm up!

  3. That catch me if you can was tough to start. Didn’t feel like 10 sprints, felt more like 110.
    Now a Bacon McRib, that’s something new to submit to McDonalds for consideration. Crowd pleaser. Kotters McRib, hope you make it back again soon.

  4. Great Q Wedding Singer! It was great to receive a hero’s welcome upon my arrival to SOT this morning. I realized quickly how much I missed the gloom on the mosey to COP…followed quickly by I realizing how much I missed the fart sack on the catch me if you cans.

    It was a great start to my day and I have missed all of you guys a ton. I look forward to getting back out there more and getting back in shape.

    Til next time.


  5. Holy DK…that was a smokefest!

    Thanks for leading us this morning Singer…great Q…great theme (may it never be repeated).

  6. Sorry to miss a McRib sighting. I was all excited when I heard he might show and had my clothes laid out. Trust me the power of the New Market Fart Sack is strong this week! At least for Wilson.

    Great to have you back in the mix McRib! See ya soon!
