Mixing it Up

Having been MIA for several weeks, YHC had this brilliant idea of trying a bunch of exercises in succession that was intended to bring some variety to Iron Fist.  The jury is out on the effectiveness of this strategy, but it hopefully had some challenging elements.  After 2 cruisers set sail down Prosperity Ch., the remaining 15 men hung around for…

Long mosey to the HAUNTED DAY CARE to get the heart rate up

Run up the hill backwards x 3

SSH x 25 IC

Merkins x 20

Sumo Squats x 20


Mosey back to the church parking lot for “stations.”  While 1 person runs around the church, the others take their spot and move to the next station when the runner returns  (14 stations, 1 runner)

Mix of jumping rope, hamstring stretches, foam roller, strange bar curls/presses, band exercises (oh snap for Pongo) and boxing/punching moves.


Mosey to the center of parking lot for some (yoga) Mary.  It was not clear if this was welcomed or despised, but hopefully some type of stretching occurred.  At least some animal noises did.


I appreciate you all indulging me in some new exercises and I enjoyed the banter.  I need to get out more!  I whiffed on the role call, so I apologize for leaving off some names.  Please feel free to fill in the blanks in the comments.

    Nice variety pack Mountaineer! Good combo of sprints, rest, stretching, and lots of random exercises. What other sorts of toys did you have in your trunk if more than 15 had been there?
    You’re missing Pony Boy and Dingo from the Iron Fist pax. Plus Cinder Block and R2D2 from Cruise if you want to count them. You don’t really have to count Dingo either for that matter. Not many do. 😉

      Thanks Man Down. How could I forget the Dingo! I also forgot to include his dog, Dingo. I apologize for the omission Pony Boy.

    Thanks Mountaineer for the variety, creativity and planning for the beatdown this am. I liked the different exercises and stretching as I don’t get enough of that and I think that will help avoid strains in the future.
