A solid dozen posted for Saturday’s GridIron including one FNG. As usual, there was some grief-giving and breeze-shooting just before the 7:00 hour. We started on time per my satellite-supported armband and began with each in attendance picking a lateral parking lot line which we used for 5 minutes of jogging forward and pedaling back. Regathered in a circle for a warm-up with Side Straddle Hops, Imperial Walkers, Russian Soldiers, Don Quixotes, Hello Dollys, Susan Somers(es), and Arm Circles. Stroll to the edge of the parking lot facing down a short hill to the tree line for mobile Elevens. Jog…

Ten redwoods fought the fartsack to witness ByProduct’s consecutive Q, while many of the Gridiron regulars were on sabbatical until next week. COP: After the PAX made a perfect circle, YHC called an audible and we all moseyed to the lower football field were we were once again greeted by props. Batting Practice: In preparation for this week’s home run derby, we all took turns swinging the bat. The leadoff batter hit one of the two balls as far as they could down the field. The PAX ran in full sprint and a bandaid was ripped from the ball…

Nine posted at GridIron thirteen days ago and, following a parking lot warmup with some of the usual, we undertook the Thirteen Acres Baker’s Dozen – involving thirteen exercises starting with 13 reps for the first exercise and 7 of the remaining 12. For round 2, the 13 reps shifted to the second exercise and we completed 7 of the other exercises. Continue for 13 rounds. The basic format was four rounds of chest, leg, and ab exercises with an SSH 13. Exercises ranged from standard Merkins to Curtsys to Flutter Kicks. Breaking from the tradition of ground-and-pound in parking…

Three brave souls fought off the fartsack on a quiet Saturday morning. As expected, the PAX was somewhat limited with 3 noble warriors representing F3 in an ultra marathon, some being out of town and White Deer’s chauffeur participating in the ultramarathon. COP (IC): SSH – 20X Helicopters – 15X Arm Circles – 10X/5X/10X/5X Don Quixotes – 15X The Thang: The intent of the morning was for an “Adderall-style” workout in which each member would alternate carrying the 20-lb kettlebell for the entire hour. That was abandoned rather quickly… We began with a mosey around the perimeter of the…

YHC just needs to preface some workouts with “I am not a professional trainer, just an @$$ hole masquerading as one.” Here is how today’s beat down at Gridiron went down: COP30 SSH15 Russian soldiers15 IW15 helicopters10 2x merkins20 Suzanne Somers, each leg30 2x LBCMosey to the Pavilion for dips/step-ups – total of 75 dips and 25 one-leg step-ups (each leg)Mosey to the upper football field for variation of the No Mercy Mile; this one referred to as the “Laps of Luxury”Start at the 50 yard line with 25 monkey humpersRun the sidelinesSeries of exercises to traverse across the field…
