54 degrees and a great morning for my VQ at TRB! As YHC got ready to begin the disclaimer and pledge,  up out of the gloom walked none other than the Bionic-man himself: Cinderella. I already knew it was going to be a good morning to have a great morning.

I gave the disclaimer (I Q from where I want to, Sargento) we did the pledge, we got to work.

25x SSH IC

25x Goofballs IC (honor to the goofball himself, TRB site Q)

5 Burpees OYO.


I couldn’t remember if we had ever run a Dora here before, but I’m a big fan of those so we did the thang.

100 Hand release Merkins

200 IBC (sizzle to honor Buckeye)

300 Sumo Squats (honor to my Japanese heritage)

Run around the bus lot and grassy area in front of the school.


The men crushed it, with only a little complaining about the Sumos, and we headed off to the side of the school for the next bit of greatness.


Triple Nickels from the last light post, back to the crosswalk.

Crosswalk: Mike Tysons

After planking for the 6, we lined up along the curb for the next bit of greatness.


The PAX went down the line calling an exercise that the rest of the group would do, while he ran down to the playground and back. While Roscoe started us off with a groan worthy set of 8 count body builders, the rest was a good challenge for all. In some order we did:

  • 8 count body builders
  • Flutter Kicks
  • Diamond Merkins
  • Rosalitas
  • Calf Raises (honor to Dirt!)
  • Monkey Humpers (honor to Tesla!)
  • Dying Cockroaches
  • Freddy Mercury’s
  • Hillbilly Walkers
  • Rocky Balboas
  • Big Boys
  • One other exercise that YHC can’t remember, cause that’s a lot…so if I missed yours leave a comment.


Then we mosey’d back to the flag, and finished with a little stretching.


Announcements: JJ5k (26th), Mt. Mitchell Hike (27th), IPC Week 4 at Gashouse this week, Young Life Golf Classic on Monday Oct. 5 (info to be posted on Slack)

Prayer Requests: Orangeman’s daughter, Cinderella’s recovery, Sargento’s M having full knee replacement, Sargento’s test on Monday, our police and first responders.


Thanks for the opportunity to lead this morning, and keep pushing the rock with you all. It’s an honor to get to do what we do, with a group of HIMs that constantly push me to be not just in better shape physically, but a better husband, father, friend, leader, servant, and steward.


Our honor defend, we will fight to the end… Buckshot.
