Always 70 and Sunny

There’s just never enough time


Fifteen of F3RVA’s finest descended on Twin Team this morning for a Tobit beatdown. Here’s what went down:

Short mosey to the cul-de-sac behind Bettie Weaver.

COP: SSHs, DQs, Helicopters, Arm Circles (x40 forward and x2 reverse), LBCs, Merkins, can’t remember anything else

Quick mosey to blacktop.

Deconstructed Burpees: This one is always a crowd pleaser.

10 Squats, 10 Leg Thrusts, 10 Merkins, 10 Leg Thrusts, 10 Jump Squats (in that order) is one round.

Repeato for 9, 8, 7, 6, …, 1.

Mosey to gravel/dirt track and partner up for B.O.M.B.S.

Like a Dora, one partner performs an exercise while the other runs a lap around the track and then switch. Exercises were

50 Burpees

100 Overhead Presses

150 Merkins

200 Big boy sit-ups

250 Squats

Plank-o-rama for the six.

Mosey back to the flag.

Merkin Ring of Fire

Two Minutes of Mary: Flutter Kicks x 20, American Hammers x 20

Numbers, Names, Announcements, Dr. Tryhard took us out.


Breaking Bread this Sunday…see Slurpee.

One of Hardywood’s talented 2.0’s wrote a book and a book signing will take place this evening at Crossroads on Forest Hill (was it 5:30-7?…someone feel free to chime in with the time).

NMS: YHC rolled up to Twin Team this AM with 5 minutes to spare and found a long row of headlights in his face. It’s great to see the big numbers continue at Twin Team. Feels like just yesterday when a PAX of five was the norm. Keep it up fellas!

The 40 arm circles during COP were in honor of DK, who gave us 60 at Timberwolf yesterday. YHC had intended to go as high as 80…but got seriously bored.

The silence during the Deconstructed Burpees was deafening. YHC will take the lack of mumble chatter as a compliment. The PAX totally crushed it though…and left YHC wondering if he had added some extra steps to his own routine.

The “track” behind Bettie Weaver was both “rutty” and “bumpy” and YHC seriously apologizes for dragging the PAX over to that danger zone.

YHC had also planned for some fun hill climbing exercises (there’s just never enough time to get it all done), but with time running out, a mosey back to the flag for ring of fire was called.

It should come as no shock that YHC was not blessed with the gift of gab. But, even if the words aren’t said often enough, this brotherhood is appreciated more than YHC can express. It’s an honor and privilege to lead.

Take your love out into the world gentlemen! Have a great Friday!

Peace…I’m out!

  1. Great job, Tobit that was tough! Great to partner with Hardywood, thanks again for doing the heavy lifting!

    Breaking Bread is not this coming Sunday, but instead the following (2/24/19)….It probably didn’t come out right as I was still gasping for air!

  2. Outstanding Q Tobit and way to push Slurpee!

    Tobit, I understand you’ll be at a very exciting conference for statisticians. Some people say statistics is boring, but I say it has its moments.

    Though I disagree with the sentiment, some people say the average statistician is mean. If you get stuck in an awkward conversation and need to extrapolate your way out, here’s a joke for you. Use only in the case of an emergency:

    Two statisticians were traveling in an airplane from LA to New York. About an hour into the flight, the pilot announced that they had lost an engine, but don’t worry, there are three left. However, instead of 5 hours it would take 7 hours to get to New York.

    A little later, he announced that a second engine failed, and they still had two left, but it would take 10 hours to get to New York.

    Somewhat later, the pilot again came on the intercom and announced that a third engine had died. Never fear, he announced, because the plane could fly on a single engine. However, it would now take 18 hours to get to New York.

    At this point, one statistician turned to the other and said, “Gee, I hope we don’t lose that last engine, or we’ll be up here forever!”

  3. Great job, Tobit! It’s been a while since I’ve been to Twin Team, and you did not disappoint. The Deconstructed Burpees followed by the BOMBS were brutal!
