The BackBlast:


The morning sun wasn’t quite up, yet the PAX saw the cones and knew it was a Bunsen-led #beatdown. That could mean only one thing…SPRINTS were sure to come up. Little did the PAX know YHC had a few extra treats in store


The PAX did a little mosey to warm the legs up a bit followed by:

SSH – IC x 25

CH Squats – IC x 17

Merkins – on Q start in down position 6 inches off ground, on UP! go up and come back down x 12

Sun Gods – IC forward x 12, backwards x 12

String Rippers – IC x x17

Late arrival (La Nina – awesome you made it!) allowed the group for a quick revisit: SSH – IC x 10

Mosey to the cones for

The Thang:

Red Barchetta (supposedly inspired by the Rush song):

100 yd sprint followed by 100 SSH –> jog back and plank for the 6

75 yd sprint followed by 75 Mtn Climbers –> jog back and plank for the 6

50 yd sprint followed by 50 LBC –> jog back and plank for the 6

25 yd sprint followed by 25 Merkins –> jog back and plank for the 6

10 yd sprint followed by 10 Burpees –> jog back and plank for the 6

Santa’s Ladder  (’tis the season!)

25 yd sprint – 10 Burpees, jog back repeato counting down to 6; switch to Merkins for 5-1.

YHC agreed with the Lexicon that it sorta felt unsymmetrical so we made it right with a repeato changing Merkins 10 – 6 and Burpees 5 – 1.


YHC hadn’t been a part of any stretching before and I was inspired by leading the PAX a few times, whom I consider Warriors in the truest sense of the word (see Paulo Coelho for excellent inspirations to being warriors of the light). And so, YHC lead the PAX through a vinyasa series mixing left and right sides of warrior 1, warrior 2, reverse warrior, and warrior 3. It was my honor to do so, despite some initial mumble chatter.

We moseyed back to the flag for…


Sweat Angels

Crunchy Frogs


American Hammers*


Dec 21 will be an amazing astrological event where Saturn and Jupiter will appear closer in the sky than they have in 800 years. They will appear as a single super planet!

YHC read from Chapter 35 of Pistis Sophia, one of the many chapters to be omitted from the Holy Bible. YHC felt inspiration and hope PAX did as well!

Naked Man Moleskin:

* Monthly challenge is 50 AM Hammers per day for December and YCH felt PAX was falling behind. THIS day we all made par! Well done!!
