Earning Cuffs & Collars


Fourteen aspiring gentleman dancers gathered in a darker than usual corner of the AO to earn their cuffs & collars. According to the dog walker the fistful of dollars, this is what might have happened:

Warmarama: SSH, DonQ, Imperial Walkers, Side Benders, WWII, & Dive Bombers

Mosey to tennis courts. Partner up for:

  • Lunges
  • Bear Crawls
  • Grapevines
  • Burpee Broad Jumps

Mosey to soccer field. Triple up for:

  • Australian Pull-ups
  • Triple-Check:
    • P1: Run field perimeter (adjusted to end-line)
    • P2: Elbow Plank
    • P3: WWII

Backtrack to flag. Stations along the way:

  • Freddie Mercury + Back Extensions
  • Jack Knives + Flapping Superman
  • Flutters + Obliques
  • Chase the Rabbit + Squats + Calf Raises

Back to flag for Elbow Plank + Announcements to run out the clock


  • Labor Day Convergence @ DogPile
  • BRR needs a driver (Handshake might be covering?)
  • Sit n sip 9/24 in Amelia. Let Gomer Pyle know if you need the address.

NMS: Awesome weather and turnout this morning. As the PAX was well aware this was my Virgin Q and I appreciated all of the constructive feedback (cadence, jargon, distance). Welcome to our FNG, Sweater a Wheezer groupie who lives in the Museum District – look for him at Mary, WDog, DogPile, etc.

Thanks again to Bodos for nudging me to lead. Personally, this was a nice bookend to an unusual spring/summer filled with incredible highs and devastating lows. Being outdoors pushing myself with this crew was an important point of reference that kept me on track and moving forward. Remember to ask your brother how he’s doing; listen; share your story; lean on each other; pull each other up; keep moving forward.
