Building Brotherhood 1 Light Pole at a Time


6 Toned and Tanned Studs ascended onto the Forge to attack a beat down for the ages. DTH and Fresh Prince arrived simultaneously, leaving the rest of the PAX wondering if we were early or late starting. According the roaming coyote pack looking to take out the slowest of the herd, this is what occurred.

COP 1: DQ’s, Heli’s, Cherry Pickers, SSH’s – warm yet, let’s mosey

COP 2: Looking to put in some miles, YHC set up a Light Pole Ladder, Lady of the Night style. Each light pole consisted of an exercise for PAX to complete than return to home base doing each exercise along the way. Exercises started at 2 reps and increased by 2 each pole.

15 light poles = a lot of running with many reps in between.

Here is how it went down:

2 Burpees, 4 Lt. Dans, 6 Merkins, 8 WWII’s, 10 Jump Squats, 12 Curls (with coupons), Bear Crawl, 16 Curb Dips, 18 American Hammers, 20 Calf Raises, 22 Mountain Climbers, 24 V Up’s, 26 Monkey Humpers, 28 LBC’s, 30 SSH’s.

Not enough time to get thru all exercises ladder style, so with 10 minutes to go an audible was called to finish all exercises in order. Snuff and DTH held plank while the remaining PAX finished up as a group.

Announcements – Gridiron Convergence, Shirt Order Coming Soon – See DTH

Numbers, Names, YHC took us out

Moleskin: Having not seen the ladder in a while, YHC thought it would be a good change. Fresh Prince and Long Pole set the pace with clocking in around 3.5 miles today. Bullseye and I enjoyed bringing up the six to ensure no one got lost but still clocked a solid 3.2. Midway thru, a pack of coyotes started howling nearby. Luckily Cooper was safely investigating the numerous piles of goose remnants away from the pack.

Great message at the flag from DTH to take time and enjoy the chatter and fellowship during workouts. We are all out to make ourselves better people, and each of us can help a brother by simply learning more about them. Seize the Day boys. Enjoyed working with you today.
