Mr Big and other Bands


YHC showed up to Atlee High school parking lot, planted flag and Opus showed up. YHC had a new playlist set up for a Tabata workout and here is what went down:


Mosey to East Entrance of School and stayed in newly paved dry parking lot for 20 SSH, 10 4ct Helicopters and 10 DQ’s. Ready to rock this Tabata out.


So YHC breaks out speaker and starts the Tabata clock for 10 rounds of 4 minutes with 10 second recovery between rounds. Each Round consisted of 8 sets of 20 seconds of exercise followed by 10 seconds rest, repeato for 7 more sets to complete the 4 minutes of exercise. Below is the list of exercises:

10 hand release merkins followed by plank for the remaining time in 20 seconds

Jump rope for 20 seconds (AMRAP) YHC got close to 50 reps…this is a gasser routine for sure!


Carolina Dry docks on road curb


Flutter Kicks

Reverse Lunges

American Hammers

Curb Step ups

Freddie Mercury

Mosey to Flag for numberama and namerama.

YHC took us out in prayer.


YHC missed the usual gang that posts on Monday. With School starting and fall making the mornings dark, seems to scare people away. If you are reading this BB from DaVille, we miss you and hope you come back soon. We felt so much better after this good workout this morning and hope to see more of you in the gloom. YHC and Opus enjoyed talking about hair bands from the 80’s and 90’s and how much has changed over the years. Mr. Big Band came up when listening to Van Halen where Opus has enjoyed the great guitar work and we were also talking of other bands such as YES that Opus has seen 8 of the Yes concerts over the years…who knew!

Have a great week and I will see you in the Gloom.

Cheers… CB
