The BackBlast:


YHC put himself on the Q Sheet after no one1 stepped in to lead this past weekend. With a bag full ‘o tricks and some ingenuity, Spark Plug and YHC showed to the AO with nary a #shovelFlag in sight2.  YHC put in a couple miles to top off the previous day’s needed two miles for the October Running Challenge, when the PAX.. they done came in hot. Mission missionalized. Disclaimer disclaimed. We held Al Gore while Forrest Gump and Duplo rolled in late, and then we were off to the field for some…


  • SSH x 20 (IC)
  • String Rippers x 15 (IC)
  • Merkins x 15 (IC)
  • Monkey Humpers3 x 15 (IC)
  • Imperial Walkers x 15 (IC)

The Thang:

DORA 1-2-3.  Pair up with another PAX, one partner stays and tallies up the exercises below, while the other runs across the bridge, does five burpee box-jumps, and runs back to relieve first partner.


  • 100 Merkins
  • 200 Squats
  • 300 LBCs

Rinse and Repeat was the order of the day.  After a few rounds, YHC called for an Omaha where we ran to the opposite side of the park for…

  • Burpee Broad Jumps across the field
  • Two Step Hump (two Lunges – one each leg – followed by 10 Monkey Humpers)

After this, we moseyed back to the #shovelFlag for some good ‘ol fashion fun. Inspired by my time in Greensboro, YHC pulled out a few Tennis Balls and we played “Pull” for 10 minutes4. Good stuff.


  • Low Dolly x 20 (IC)
  • Cindy Crawford x 10 (IC) (R/L)
  • Low Slow Flutter x 20 (IC)
  • American Hammers x 25 (IC)5


  • #TAP for Tri-Delt as him and his family are travelling to Omaha for a few days’s R and R
  • Rando Calrissian will begin this month; stay tuned

YHC took us out with a reminder that while we don’t know what’s coming around the bend, we can get prepared and stay prepared for the unexpected.

Naked Man Moleskin:

  1. Really?  No one?  Nation’s fourth core principle, guys…
  2. Ditka, I hope you had a great wedding, brother. God bless you and your (new) M.
  3. Just because…
  4. Not sure many of our PAX have ever actually thrown a ball before…
  5. Newest challenge to spur on the Q: “(insert number of reps) is his max; he can’t go any higher.”  Thanks ExciteBike!

It was a pleasure and a privilege to lead you men!
