Burning the Clock


A lucky 7 beefcakes arose earlier than most to get their sweat on before the sun could peak above the trees. Perfect weather for an autumn smoker. As typical YHC promised a minimal running Q, this is it is rumored to have occurred.

5 am struck, lets mosey to Henrico’s darkest park. Warmorama included SSH’s, DQ’s, Helis, Arm Circles, Gumbo Style Freddie Mercuries and a Pax favorite – Scorpion Kicks. Warm, lets get started

Mosey to parking lot for a bit of 4 corners SOJ style (prostitute). 10 Lt. Dans (switched to lunges after round 2), 20 Bone Rubs, 30 Dancing Bears, 40 WWII’s.

Mosey to front of church stopping for a burpee check at each speed bump. A perfect number of Coupons were found for a TABATA workout. Circle up at your favorite cinderblock with everyone leading 4 sets of 20 second exercises AMRAP with a 10 second rest. Coupon included exercises were overhead dips, squats, curls for the girls, around the world, coupon run, chest press and the very popular American hammers.

Just enough time left to coupon carry BTTF to deposit coupon on the pile for future use.

Numberama, Namerama, Announcements – YHC took us out.

Announcements – Shoe Drive continues. Seems to be a bit of competition between Nanoregions. See your local rep to collect lightly used footwear. Prayers for Hightower, F3 brother from South Carolina that was seriously injured in the line of duty.

I may have missed other announcements so please see comments below.

Moleskin: YHC was hoping to get a 4 corner and Tabata workout in but the parking lot was a bit larger than planned. This led to the audible to lunges and elimination of decreased corners after WWII’s.

Tabata workout was a 1st for YHC but PAX came up with some great exercises and mumble chatter was excellent. Music is certainly recommended in the future. Thank you for indulging me in this effort. Luckily the coupons worked out perfectly.

Appreciate the regulars coming out and encouraging YHC out of the fartsac on a weekly basis as today was a glorious morning. Great chatter during and afterward, really shows why this is such a great group.

  1. Well done, Last Call. First time attempting Bone Rubs (emphasis on attempting!) Splinter came for the no-running boot camp only to make us run when it was his turn at the Tabata Hot Potato. At least he finally got some kind of potato handed to him.

    Hightower from F3 Myrtle Beach was killed in the line of duty. I think his partner was wounded. Prayers up for both and their families!


  2. Great Q Last Call!! I left Daville to get away from kettle bell Wednesdays and still got a coupon day. Ouch!

    Enjoy my first trip to First Watch and plan to return!


  3. Spit gets the honors for getting up so early.

    Something about Honeydo and horror movies.

  4. I am happy to win the Oversharer of the Week Award and follow in the footsteps of Handshake and Splinter.

    Solid beat down Last Call.

  5. Handshake (aka Elbow Bump) on

    First Watch has quickly grown to be my favorite AO. I love some of the larger AO’s but you miss any of the conversation and jokes when there is only 5-7 people.

    Nice job Last Call.
