Summer at WDog


On the evening before a Q, YHC typically reads through some previous BB’s from other AO’s for inspiration and tries to taylor the morning workout to compliment other workouts that the PAX may have attended. I saw in my research that Bodos sent out a link to an article from Outside online about Wim Hof and his extreme cold and breath techniques to enjoy a healthy and vibrant life. Last night I thought it might be cool to try to have the Pax strip down to T-shirts and Shorts (caps and gloves optional); however, when gathering with the PAX we discussed that a kiddie pool filled with Ice Water at a future 2nd F event was in order…so more to come soon. Whew! and here is what went down this morning:


Mosey to War memorial Tower and circle up for:

20 SSH, 10 DQ, 10 Russian Soldiers, 10 Imperial Walkers, 10 4ct American Hammers, 10 reverse scorpions, 10 scorpions and 20 merkins.


Mosey to the Triangle for a triple check and in celebration of the cold we stated at the top with Polar bears to the other street from the crop circle, run down to bottom, 20 LBC’s, then Bernie Saunders to the top, perform 20 merkins and repeat two more times. The only change was Lunges from merkins (at the Crop circle) to the other down hill street. We planked for the six.

We then moseyed to the stage, grabbed a coupon and circled up everyone picked a partner for a touch a tree exercise where Partner 1 (P1) – touched six trees carrying the coupon as the timer while Partner 2 performed sit up presses with the block for 2 rounds then they could choose thier own block exercise for the 3rd rep. It was nice partnering with you Last Time.

We then mosey to the Amphitheater and starting at the bottom we performed 2 squats then boxed jumped to the next level and continued to the top of the seating area then returned down by performing 1 derkin at each step.

We then mosey to stone wall for Donkey kicks and wall sits, simple concept; however, YHC had trouble articulating the directions as the intent was to go down the line of PAX for a 20 count while in a wall sit after the PAX performed 10 donkey kicks. We were able to get 4 rounds in and had to audible so we could return to the flag for Mary.


We returned for 2 minutes of stretching then we were ready for COT


Namerama, numbrama and Pucker took us out.


We have a HDHH tonight at starting 5:30 pm at Hardywood West Creek on the west end. It was great to see everyone this nice morning prior to the rain that is coming later today. It was an honor to lead, stay safe, healthy and have a great week! Cheers…CB
