8 warriors braved the mighty drizzle of Short Pump to brave a workout from Fireman Ed. The workout went something like this: COP: 15 SSHs (for some reason my body went faster than my cadence causing a near uproar from the geriatrics who prefer predictability and order), 10 DQs, 20 FMs, 15 ACs (each direction) and 13 Cherry pickers. Mosey to curb near track Exercise 1: Curb Bear Crawl and Crawl Bear up to 5 merkins. Rest and go 6 to 9 merkins. Mosey around track (with Jville splashing in the puddles like a good country boy). Exercise 2: With…

Another beautiful Fall morning at Grid Iron, but time for something different…Hot Potato. This happens when YHQ forgets he signed up months in advance for the Q on back to back weekends. Fortunately we had a group of 10 men who all contributed as Q. So, after a warm up in the parking lot we headed to the comfy soccer field for a modified Beast including Burpees, Merkins, WW IIs, and more with Pinto, Blue Moon, and Bi Product taking the lead. Attila completed our time on the soccer field by leading a modified triple check. FireMan Ed then took…

Beautiful fall day for a workout and fortunately a great group of men posted that morning. Even had a FNG, (thanks to Hand Shake for recruiting Mittens). Began with a warm up in the parking lot and then 11’s at the pull up bars (Pull up and Dips). Short mosey to the soccer field for an ab workout of 4 Corners (5 Heels to Heaven, 10 LBCs, 15 Flutters, and 20 WWIIs), followed by a round with an incremental 5 of each. Was thinking a third round, but after our recent Convergence at Grid Iron…we didn’t need more abs. On…

10 able bodied and mature warriors descended on Gridiron on a humid and slightly rainy day. Before we commenced the beatdown, it was noticed that J’ville was wearing “Scott” brand sneakers. Who knew that a diversification strategy of turf treatment and footwear could work? The workout went like this: COP: 11 SSHs, 11 DQs, 11 Freddie Mercuries, 11 arm circles and 11 cherry pickers. Elevens: First 11 (White Deer version): HRMs move five feet so WWIIs Second 11 (Tater version): Plank Jacks go 30 yards do Lt. Dans Third 11 (Lighthouse version): Carolina Dry docks go 70 yards do 2…

The GridIron Pax will host a Convergence at 7:00AM on Labor Day, September 7, 2020. The venue will be at the GridIron AO, Pouncy Tract Park, Short Pump, VA. We are planning a 1 hour bootcamp followed by a socially-distanced coffeeteria on site. We will have coffee and a simple breakfast menu of sausage and egg bagels. There will be no charge for breakfast, but we will be collecting donations for CrossOver Healthcare Ministry, which is currently handling a lot of COVID testing and providing much needed healthcare support to hard-hit communities. More info can be found at https://www.crossoverministry.org/. If…

After enjoying half a Honeydo Q at Dogpile, YHC ducked out for the long drive to Short Pump, finding a handsome gaggle of (mostly) Respect-level veterans at GridIron.

A PAX of five gathered in the rain at Pouncey Tract Park for GridIron. Moist mosey from the parking lot to the adjacent football field for startup COP.
