No triple check this day at Dogpile


YHC convinced his 2.0 to go out for a morning beatdown and we get to the AO in time to see the runners from ET arrive our group assembles and we are ready to roll. Here is what went down this morning:


We mosey to Crop circle at Triangle as we had a big group to do some morning warm ups with 20 SSH, 10 DQ, 19 Imperial Walkers, 20 4 ct LBC’s, 20 American Hammers, 15 reverse Scorpions, 10 Scorpions and 20 merkins.


We mosey down the hill to the Pipe loop and partner up where Partner 1(P1) runs the pipe loop (Timer) Partner 2(P2) performs 5 ball dippers, 10 merkins and 15 2ct flutter kicks and repeats until P1 returns. Switch with P1 who performs the 3 exercises while P2 runs the pipe loop. We repeat this 3 times for a total of 4 reps each. Great working out with Gomer Pile and Swirly on this one. The partner teams crushed this circuit!

We need to get back up the hill so we perform a Paula Abdul (two light posts forward, then returning 1 light post back.) The exercise is a Bernie Saunders to 1st light pole, walk to second light pole run back to 1st light pole then Bernie Saunders to 2nd light pole walk to 3rd light pole and repeat until we get to the bottom of the Triangle. We lunge up to the crop circle, then AYG to the field in front of the War memorial tower. This was a great time for some mumble chatter up the hill and I had the pleasure of catching up with Ship Lap on this part of the beat down recovery from pipe loop.

We line up on one side of the field to start Black Jack. This is like 11’s but we go to 21 starting with 1 merkin then run to other side of field to do 20 LBC’s, run back to the start side of field 2 merkins, then to other side of field 19 LBC’s. The total count is 21 reps and we got to 17 merkins(some more) and 4 LBC’s before we needed to mosey back to flag.


We circle up and perform about 2 minutes of stretching before COT.


We circle up Namerama, Numberama discussed a potential CSAUP/BRR coming up in August. Flatline mentioned that his Church’s food pantry needs diapers, formula, mac and cheese and breakfast cereal. Think Costco size here and if you can help please donate. (Flatline, please post details to this BB.)

We also had a Triple Check of brothers below: Munson, Seymour and Malpractice. Way to show up guys, unable to upload photo for security reasons…maybe can get some help from Wilson…

It is an honor to lead you fine men this morning and I look forward to seeing you in the gloom. Cheers…CB
