Starting Year 2 @ Tradition

13 of Tradition’s finest broke out the spring workout gear to enjoy the 65 degree temperature.  It’s hard to believe that last Thursday’s workout involved a snowball fight.  This is how it went down:


  • SSH x 20
  • Cotton Pickers x 15
  • Imperial Storm Troopers x 15

The Thang

  • Mosey to outback and partner up
  • Each pair does a total of 50 pull ups and 100 squats
  • Mosey to haunted day care and partner up

Round 1

  • Partner 1 runs down hill and back up backwards; 10 burpees and then return
  • Partner 2 does Carolina Dry Docks until Partner 1 returns
  • Switch

Round 2

  • Partner 1 runs down hill and back up backwards; 10 burpees and then return
  • Partner 2 does LBCs until Partner 1 returns
  • Switch

Round 3

  • Switch
  • Partner 2 does WW II sit ups until Partner 1 returns
  • Partner 1 runs down hill and back up backwards; 10 burpees and then return


  • Mosey to the wall
  • People’s chair for 1 minute (w/ air presses for last 30 seconds)
  • Balls to the wall – all you got (T-claps to Guinness for lasting the longest)


  • Indian run around church
  • Prisoner Merkins (continuation from Tuesday) – back down the ladder from 10 to 1
  • Sprints x 6
  • 10 burpees


  • LBC x 15
  • Pretzel Crunch x 10 (courtesy of Jelly)
  • Homer to Marge medley (courtesy of Raptor)


  1. Great push by all.  I have to say that I had a great burn going during those Prisoner Merkins.
  2. Thanks to all for allowing me to lead this morning.  I hope everyone enjoyed it.  It felt great to be out there in shorts and t-shirts.
  3. T-claps to Dutch for the blessing in COT.
  4. Funky – you got a little quiet during the medley of burpees over at the haunted daycare so I’ll take that as a compliment that you didn’t find that part of the workout too easy

    Thanks to all that came out. Hope you guys found the workout to be a good variety and challenging. Sound off below.

    Buckwheat – Thanks for partnering up. Great work.

    Great workout for sure. I definately felt that one this morning. Got to keep an eye out on Funky checking out Jelly’s Carolina Dry Dock stance and then he went on to smack me on the ass a few times this morning. Not sure where his mind was at :). Hate I missed last night but didn’t finish up at church until around 8:45 and I figured you guys would be gone or finishing up like you did the last time around 9pm. Take care, and have a great afternoon gentlemen.

      Kemosabe, I am not surprised by this at all. After all, Funky was the first to notice I forgot my shorts a few months ago. I somehow missed all of this craziness (thank goodness). Thanks for partnering up and thanks to Blind Date for leading. You’re a good guy Blind date, no matter what Funky says.

    Good stuff BlindDate. Yes Burpees will shut me up quickly.

    Kemosabe i don’t understand. You say you were concerned but were quick to offer me a ride home. Huh…interesting.

    Dutch and Raptor thanks for the three man pairing today. Enjoyed it.

  4. Chicken Strip

    Great workout @Blind Date. As soon as you said we were headed to the Haunted Day Care I knew we were in for it.

    Enjoyed partnering with you @Forgotten Jelly thanks for pushing me

  5. Kemosabe

    OK that is a great point Funky. Forgot I gave you a ride home. I will shut up now. I know you could never make that statement :).

  6. Dutch

    The hunted daycare reminds me of painfull experiences. Which is in line with blind dates beat down. Hurt so good blindate. Way to kick our butts as we start yr 2.

    Funky+burpees=silence. I think we broke the code pax!

    Sorry I missed it Blinddate. Mmthen kids sickness passed on to me last night. Needless to say it would have been kinda messy if I posted this morning……

    So I missed a good beatdown……but I also missed Funky checking out Jelly, Funky grabbing Kemosabe ass, Funky having a threesome with Dutch and Raptor and Funky being picked up by Kemosabe……….I’m kinda glad I couldn’t post! #justsayin #nooneneedstoseethat
