The BackBlast:


A beautiful morning at our new 0600 start time.  YHC was focused on lats and shoulders.  YHC has been hurting badly since the OTB workout Thursday and was admittedly grumpy and at times discombobulated.  The PAX lifted YHC’s spirit with positive affirmation and genuine fellowship.


  • SSH (x15 IC)
  • Toy Soldiers (x15 IC)
  • Sun Gods (x10 rev/fwd IC)
  • Dog Paddle (x15 IC)
  • Lunges (x15 IC)
  • Chinooks (x10 rev/fwd IC)
  • A quick jog and random burpees for some gentleman who responded to “Hello,” and for bad glare.

The Thang:

  • Six Pack at the Monkey Bars: 1 pull-up, 5 merkins, 2 pull-ups, 4 merkins, up to 5 pull-ups, 1 merkin, then back down.  All PAX quickly reached failure on pull-ups and improvised accordingly.
  • Dancing Bearpees: OYO 1 burpee followed by 4 dancing bear steps; 2 burpees and 8 steps, walking the line of trees.
  • One Calls (x10 IC modifed from Exicon to be as follows: 1 – Down; 2 – Hand Release; 3 Hand Return; 4 – Up and hold; 5 – Floyd Mayweather Punch Right arm; 6 – Right arm down; 7 – Floyd Mayweather Punch Left arm; 8 – Left arm down.)
  • Dancing Bearpees: OYO 3 burpees followed by 12 dancing bear steps; 4 burpees and 16 steps, walking the line of trees.

Announcements: The next Abduction (July 4, 2020) will occur at 7:00 a.m.  After that (beginning July 11 and from then onward), all Abductions therafter will occur at 6:00 a.m. until further notice.  Apologies to Bunson et al. who arrived late this morning.

Short Circuit’s wife is now home, but Thanos (2.3) remains in hospital.

Fast Times was missed!

YHC pontificated on the vastness of space and time and the freedom it provides each of us to make our own path.  YHC left the PAX with this Rumi poem:

     As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.

     As you cease to be, true life begins.

     As you grow smaller, this world cannot contain you.

     You will be shown a being that has no you in it.

Naked Man Moleskin:

*YHC is determined to beef up the PAX’s lats and shoulders.

**YHC enjoyed dishing out random burpees and perhaps became a bit drunk on power.
