Gun Day

YHC had the Q and in the spirit of The Body, had everyone wear their “Gun” Shirts (aka sleeveless).  At 0529, YHC said a very lousy disclaimer and by 0530, with 9 pax in hand, we began with a little… Warm-O-Rama SSHx15 IC Gpa Jacksx10 IC Windmillx10 IC LSSx10 IC LSMx10 IC 10 Burprees OYO […]

Epsilon revisited

YHC apologies for the delay in my BB.  It’s been written and saved but not published. YHC had the Q for this morning.  Earlier in the week, Epsilon Qed an impromptu mid-week metal workout. It was simple an effective.  Sounds like a good plan to do twice!! The Thang: 20 pushups for time other partner […]

Compass Points & SpaceX

The cold gloomy morning showed it’s ugly head this morning. YHC was setting out the “compass points” to act as our makeshift “stations” as the Pax arrived. Starbucks arrived and tried to park in the middle of our workout area…I shooed him onto where normal people park. At 530 I gave a somewhat OK disclaimer […]

Aerosmith Pump

Warmup (Radiohead): Now that’s some good music!  We worked through some SSH, Mountain Climbers and Penny Pickers to mixed counts of 9’s, 10’s, 19’s and 20’s.  Because that’s how Othello likes it.  9’s are DUMB! The Thang-a-lang (Aerosmith): Many of the PAX who are too young to even know who Aerosmith is were still sleeping.  […]

4 Generations Deep

Another year behind us.  A new year before us.  What we do with this gift is up to us. DT was first to the AO.  YHC rolled in sometime after.  10 minutes later Othello, Chum and Sparkplug joined the group.  With that we had 4 generations of Mint Hill leadership.  DT is one of the […]

Pavlov’s Bell

Nimbus, still struggling with his non-COVID related health issues (that sound like COVID), hit YHC up to cover his Metal Q.  No worries brother, we’ve got you.  YHC keeps a couple ready-to-go winkies in the garage for just such an occasion.  After spending some good quality time picking out a new song list for today’s […]
