What’s Your Name?

Seven men gathered at the Goat on a cold early April morning. Winter is just having a hard time leaving. He is like the friend that has been talking forever and you think they are about to leave, but then says, “oh yea, by the way” and goes on for another 30-45 minutes…. As Pockets was coming through the parking lot, he noticed something interesting in the back of Dolph’s truck and asked if he was expecting some snow. What were all those coupons doing in the back of the truck? Hmm, interesting!



SSH x 25 IC

Merkins x 15 IC

Imperial Walkers x 15 IC

The Pledge


Mosey back side of Cramerton main street, up the stairs, and down to the bridge. Looks like the gate entrance to Goat Island was locked, after some tugging at the lock, realize it was not locked and opened the gate. Thank goodness b/c Q was trying to think fast what rest of the workout was going to be if we couldn’t get into the gate…Mosey to 2nd bridge and then bear crawls across and then to back parking lot for 5 burpees. Next exercise, Walking Zombies across the parking  lot, 12 mercins, and then Walking Zombies back across for 12 more mercins…

Let’s mosey, bear crawls across bridge and then mosey to Dolph’s truck. Hmm, what is going on now? Everyone grab a coupon and head back over to entrance to Goat Island. All PAX take coupon for 8 curls, 8 overhead presses, and 8 squats and then run across bridge and back. Repeat and rinse x 5…I hear the train, 5 burpees.

Once completed, mosey over bridge to picnic tables on the left…20 dips and 20 derkins. Mosey back to parking lot for a round of Marys. After Q did first set, look over to his left for next PAX to name next exercise, but had a brain fart and couldn’t remember PAXs name and asked “What is your Name”, oh yes Mayor, next exercise.
