Seven of the faithful (but not so many “regulars”) posted on Feb 15 at GridIron. Johnsonville had volunteered as Q, and this is what went down, more or less. COP warmup in rapid succession, including 40x SSH, arm circles, hillbillies, don quiotes, Alabama prom dates, supermans, susanne sommers, etc. Grab 2 coupons each. Set down coupons in parking lot, pair up, and line up against the wall with partner. Round 1 — First partner inverts on wall and does chicken peckers whilst other partner runs to coupons and does coupon burpees. Repeat 4x each. Intermission — Native American run around…

A PAX of ten, including two FNGs, assembled under rainy skies for Saturday’s GridIron. At the appointed time, we formed our circle, with more detailed disclaimer for our new guys, and began with 25 x SSHs, 15 x Helicopters, 15 x IWs, 15 x DQs, 15 x Russian Soldiers, and 15 x Arm Circles (small/big, forward, then reverse). Mosey across the football field and head for the Short Pump Middle School north wall for 10 minutes of Donkey Kicks. Not unlike 10 minutes of Burpees, begin each minute of a 10 minute stretch by completing a Donkey Kicks on your…

We had a PAX of a dozen, mostly in short sleeves and shorts, post for Saturday’s GridIron. Advertised as walking-boot friendly in pre-workout communications, we aimed to please and stayed together for the morning. Saunter away from our cars and further into the parking lot for the startup Circle of Pain. Completed 25 x Side Straddle Hops, 15 x Imperial Walkers, 15 x Don Quixotes, 15 x Hillbillies, 15 x Helicopters, 10 x Susan Somers (each side), and 15 x Alabama Prom Dates. Stroll to the football field for Jack Webb with a Chaser. Usual Jack Webb involving Merkins and…

There was a M*A*S*H unit at Gridiron this morning. One guy cannot run, another guy has a fake knee, and another guy is in a boot. Needless to say, they were not ready for a traditional boot camp. They grabbed their KBs, hopped in Johnsonville’s car and did a separate workout under the cover of the bus loop. YHC has no idea what they did after COP, but here is what happened to the non-handicap placard PAX: COP 30 SSH15 IW15 Hairy Rocketts15 DQ15 HelicoptersArm circles – 15 small, 5 big; forwards and backwardsMosey to turf field at Striker Park10…

On a cold winter solistice morning, I decided to take a page out of other playbooks with a deck of cards and some challenging exercises for the seven sensational athletes that call themselves PAX. COP: Run lap around parking lot, 25 SSHs, run lap, 25 invisible jump ropes, run lap, 10 DQs, run lap and 15 arm circles. Mosey to other corner of parking lot. First Exercise: Pick card from deck. Spades are burpees, Diamonds are merkins, Hearts are 2 count flutter kicks and Clubs are heels to heaven. The first couple picks were high spades which made the PAX…

A PAX of five made it out to Pouncey Tract Park for the final GridIron for November 2019.

A half dozen posted at the southern end of the Libbie Mill Library parking lot for the temporarily relocated GridIron. We exited our vehicles prior to the start time, probably due to some enthusiasm for temporary new grounds, and tried to ignore the cutting northeast wind. Advertised as a Hot Potato affair, we followed through with this and everyone had a go. Chum Bucket started with a mosey to the wind-shielded loading dock of the library for the startup COP with SSHs, DQs, Russian Soldiers, and Arm Circles. Moved into a nearby field for five round rotation of 10 Merkins…

We are very excited that Henrico Recreation & Parks (HR&P) has, at our request, graciously agreed to install pull up bars and dip bars at Pouncy Tract Park to replace (and substantially improve) those that were removed some time ago. HR&P has asked for our input on placement. My thought is that we provide 2-3 optional suggestions. If you are interested in weighing in on that, then please meet at Pouncy Tract Park at 8A next Saturday (11/ 23) to walk the site and weigh options. The meeting will commence right after COT. It will be followed by the usual…
