9 studly dudes came out on a nice fall morning to experience some exercise and fellowship. Even though a few regulars decided to fartsack, a good time was still had. COP: DQ, DMH, Invisible jump rope, merkins, Freddie Mercury, ACs Mosey to lower field and take on the beast. The wrinkle was that we would go across the field widthwise or go lengthwise depending on how I flipped my coin. We started with merkins, went to Lt. Dans, plank jacks, Carolina dry docks, mountain climbers and then of course burpees. Mosey to front of Short Pump middle. Mega Dora with…

Just like a Motel 8, we tend to leave the light on just in case a familiar face shows up out of nowhere. Today, Cecil and Quest did just that. 11 weathered veterans joined up for a classic Gridiron pounding.

A slightly variable number of PAX showed up for a beat down today at Gridiron. As the COP started, 2 people from a nearby workout showed up and I thought “2 FNGs, how awesome” and then once we got out of COP they left to go to their normal workout. Perhaps it was the scorpion kicks, note to self. So we went from 15 to 13 to 14 with the 7:59 A.M. appearance of Seymour. I wiped a little sweat on him so he could get credit (probably not good COVID protocol – sorry). The exercises went like this: COP:…

https://youtu.be/pslSw1tGZs0 1st F – 12 men braved the early morning mugginess to be able to work up a sweat, get stronger, and have a reason for a Saturday nap.

You can run but you can’t hide from the rain at Gridiron. The good news is that it was about 70 degrees and it didn’t even rain a lot until the last 10 minutes or so. This was my virgin Richmond Q. I used to Q around 15 to 20 times a year in Charlotte, although typically with an older group. I’ve attended Gridiron many times over the years. I started with F3 ten years ago, either July or August 2011. Since my son has lived in Richmond since 2007, whenever we came up on weekends, I usually went to…

Today had the markings of a higher mileage, high rep beat-down. No humidity, plenty of clouds and an extra 1 ½ hours of sleep. The Gridiron awaited 12 noble and mostly healthy warriors.

17 able bodied dudes including 2 FNGs (including one in a Tommy Hilfinger rugby shirt) make their appearance at Gridiron. The Fireman saw 8 people at 6:57 thinking this may be a small group but a squadron of cars came in right before 7. Probation arrived at 6:59, WTH? COP: Two laps through the parking lot and the other workout group, SSH (just kidding I don’t do those anymore), DQs, Dead man hangs, FMs, merkins and arm circles.
