Revisiting the Pillars of Pain


Nine of the faithful posted at GridIron last Saturday. Yes, it is horrible how untimely this post is. But, sh** has been crazy. In any case, YHC (Johnsonville) took the Q that morning, and this is sort-of kind-of what went down —

COP Warmup with SSH, DQ, Imperial Walkers, merkins, LBCs, etc.

Mosey toward pillars stopping at the bus road for traditional curb crawls up to 6 and back down. Standing mountain climbers.

Continue mosey to pillars. Line up against pillars. AMRAP rounds for 45 seconds, with 15 seconds rest. Last 4 move to next available pillars between AMRAPs. Rotate through the following list, repeating until we reached the school’s rear courtyard:

  • Boxing cockroaches
  • scissor lunges
  • burpees
  • plank jacks
  • squats

Mosey to the brick wall within the school’s rear courtyard. Standard 11s rotating between donkey kicks and derkins. This is the point where TP exited to earn his name. See below.

Mosey back toward the VSF, stopping in the main GridIron field for a round of Jack Webbs.

COT with YHC taking us out. Coffeeteria for most.

Blue Moon brought his 20 year-old son, FNG TP, home from Hampden-Sydney College for the summer. Welcome TP. Admittedly, we struggled with a name for TP. But, he helped us out by taking an emergency bathroom break 2/3 of the way through the hour.

Great work, men!
