It was so cold, I started a minute early, before Dial-up showed up. He found us. He found us because he could hear the crunch of the frozen grass on the football field as we did SSHs. Did I mention it was cold? As in 18 degrees. As in colder than it typically is in Charlotte, from where I used to be. Despite the cold, it was a great day for a workout. As always, it is great to have a group to workout with. No fart-sacking with these guys. Despite the lack of a disclaimer, no injuries, even on…

10 Pax, all regulars. After a brief warm-up we moseyed over to football field and did the beast starting with Burpees, continuing with 2 count Freddie Mercuries, then Burpees again, 2 count Flutter Kicks, Burpees 3rd time, ending with Heels to Heaven. To slow down Homer and to work on his Burpee form it was suggested that he do a Hand-release Burpee. He tried it, and it worked great! Though it did not stop him down completely. After the beast we moseyed to Pull-up bars and did 11s rotating between Pull-ups and Step-ups. Then on to tennis court for Suicides.…

With it being about 25 degrees outside I was driving up and I guess they were playing a doubleshot of Foreigner on 96.5. The song that came on was “Cold As Ice” by Foreigner. We were happy to have a FNG from Jersey and Ukraine join us. He came in a fancy Porsche (not to be confused with no frills Porsches) so we named him Yugo. I guess if you can afford New Jersey property taxes you can afford a nice car. Welcome Yugo! The exercises went something like this: COP: Lap around parking, lot, DQs, CPs, Freddie Mercuries, Arm…

While four GridIron regulars were about to line up elsewhere in Richmond to begin Saturday’s Richmond Marathon, eight of us posted for GridIron proper. We undertook a mini-marathon involving 26.2 laps of the Pouncey Tract Park parking lot. Take an initial lap, then take sidewalk chalk to mark the concrete in tracking progress. Warmup with SSHs, DQs, IWs, Helicopters, Merkins, APDs, and Arm Circles. Divide into two groups of four and complete Quadruple Check – four rounds, taking turns running a lap, holding People’s Chair, completing Freddie Mercuries, or Merkins followed by a Plank. Follow with a lap. Pair up…

A PAX of eight posted for this late October GridIron. Quick circle around the concession stand followed by a warmup in the parking lot with a line up of the usual. Mosey to the turf field for Super 21 with Merkins and WWIIs. Follow with a Quadruple Check. Relocate to the nearby parking lot for parking space conveyor. Mosey back to the Pull Up bars for a few round robin rounds with one guy pulling and holding and the remaining guys holding plank. Final circle with a little Mary. COP to finish.

8 Pax gathered together to get a beat down or to see the great ruckus they call pickleball. As we arrived we were wondering why so many gathered before 7 a.m. to play a sport that at its best gets viewed on ESPN the ocho. Anyway, the exercises went like this: COP: DQs, CPs, merkins, pickle pounders (in honor of the nearby tourney), FMs and ACs. Exercise 1: all you can exercise buffet consisting of 10 burpees, 20 2 count MCs., 30 Carolina DDs, 40 squats, 50 SSHs, do as many sets as possible for 20 minutes. Mosey to school…
