8 mature warriors braved the rain to make it out to Gridiron. For whatever reason, it rains 2/3 of the time that Fireman Ed Q’s at Gridiron (or about 4 times as often as the Jets win). A PAX called me the Weatherman so I made it the title of todays backblast. After checking to see if White Deer was going to make it (and to Attila’s dismay he did not), the workout went like this: COP: 10 Russian Soldiers, 7 DQs, 10 Helicopters and 10 merkins. Mosey to the bus loop (one of the very few covered areas in…

Eleven of the faithful posted in the far west end on a cold Saturday morning. Johnsonville (YHC) was Q for the day. Without any side straddle hops, and without any kind of normal COP warmup, the Q sent the pax (and himself) on a particular 1 mi route around the school, up Pouncy Tract Road, around pickleball courts and to the pullup bars. Upon arrival, each member of the pax did a round of 10 pullups and 20 merkins (OYO count and in no particular order). After all completed pullups and merkins, YHC led the pax in 15 F3-count (30…

Three brave and somewhat crazy warriors risked the elements to visit the Gridiron this morning.  Conditions remained safe and here is how it went down as we played the hand dealt us: Great work by the PAX great to welcome Double D.  God was good today as we remained safe! Tried to make this friendly for the virtual PAX. Attila

A proper dozen posted for Saturday’s GridIron. A few minutes of breeze shooting were followed by an on-time 7 AM kickoff.

Followed each exercise with three Burpees. Split the group in half and moved to opposite sides of the eastern end zone for Four Corners variation. Complete seven Merkins…

13 able bodied middle aged dudes (maybe upper middle age for several) showed up in the cold morning for a beat down. After being amazed at another high attendance morning, the Fireman Ed’s Q went like this: COP: Two laps with some jogging, karaoke and Bernie Sanders. Honeydo was a casualty of the severely fast pace of the old folks and took a slight tumble. DQs, 3 punitive burpees, CP, ACs, Fred Mercuries Exercise 1: Start with 10 merkins, then 10 merkins, 20 WWIIs, then 10 merkins, 20 WWIIs, 30 jump squats, then 10 merkins, 20 WWIIs, 30 jump squats,…

No hot potato today. No one else wanted or remembered to sign-up for the Q, so YHC had a strong supply of red pills. Eight other noble warriors got to participate.
