These fields aren’t like NoToll fields…


5 SOJers started their hump day with some action. The flag was planted and off we went with a slowsy lap around the parking lot in case Mr. Roper or any other LIFOs were coming…none…so we headed down to the field for COP.

COP included DQs, Helicpoters, SSHs, Imperial Walkers, Copperhead Squats, Alternating Shoulder Taps and LBCs – All IC.


Long Distance Lindsays

Line up on the end-line and do 30 merkins and 10 Jump Squats, then run the length of the football field. At the other end do 25 and 15 and so on down to 10-30.

Recovery Lap up the stairs across behind the bleachers and back down the other steps.

Suck Relay with Stairs

4 men exercising while one man runs up the stairs, across behind the bleachers and back down the other stairs – rotate when runner returns. Repeat x 2. Exercises were – plank (regular or elbow or back and forth, just hold it dammit), APDs, SSHs, Box Cutters.

Mosey up the stairs past the Sysco truck (who was late today…Wilson!) and over to the Tennis courts

Compounding Four Corners

Corner 1 = 10 merkins, then sprint AYG to the corner 2

Corner 2 = 10 merkins, 20 jump squats, then lunge to corner 3

Corner 3 = 10 merkins, 20 jump squats, 30 single-count mountain climbers, then sprint AYG to corner 4

Corner 4 = 10 merkins, 20 jump squats, 30 single-count mountain climbers, 40 LBCs, then lunge to corner 1

Court Work

Bearcrawl across court 1, stop and do 10 Alternating Shoulder Taps

Lunge across court 2, stop and do 10 Ball Dippers

Crabwalk across court 3, stop and do 20 monky humpers

Repeato back to the start.

Slowsy back to the Flag for 2 rounds of ROF:

  • Round 1 = hold six inches and perform 10 Hello Dollies when it is your turn.
  • Round 2 = hold plank and perform 10 plank jacks when it is your turn.

COT, Number-rama, Name-a-Rama and YHC took us out.


  • Field Day – May 11 at Dogpile – claim your nano region and show up to compete. SOJers – let me know if you will be there. Uniform is t-shirt (preferably white or a Hooters shirt) with cutoff sleeves and cutoff jean shorts.


No partner work today….the dreaded 5-some called for some individual you vs you work and of course a version of YHC’s favorite, The Suck.

It was warm this morning and the planking and running certainly got the sweat rolling. During the Lindsays, other than sucking wind and watching Doozy and Tobit fly, YHC noticed the stark difference between the field conditions at old Midlo Middle versus the plush fields of NoToll. Heads up Timberwolf PAX – we may need to test the Timberwolf field tomorrow.

Way to work fellas. It was great effort by all. And, of course, a great way to start the day.

No More Gumbo For You…until Timberwolf!
