Thanks for the opportunity to lead men


86 Rudolph AGAIN!

Timeframe called for help to cover the Bulldog, so I stepped up. Five Hims showed up to play with the dog.

We did warm ups and stretches to get the blood going. From there, we did (5) exercises for 45 seconds each OYO followed by 15 seconds to transition to the next, then moseyed around the parking lot after each set.  We repeated that (7) times with varied exercises from  side straddle hops, flutter kicks, iron mans, CDD’s, merkins, big boys, American hammers, chest presses, kettle swings, bear crawls, lunges, etc. you get the picture.

We pledged our allegiance to the new AMERICAN flag for our site. It sure is purty! Prayed for those heard and those unheard. Then we had a special prayer for our Rudolph aka Buttercup for being MIA. The story is that Rudolph spent his morning picking daisy’s from the neighbors back yard, idk?


10 men showed up for a run through Dallas at the one and only prison break. It was fun and a good time of fellowship!

Round Up

Just Another Gloomy Day at The Goat

Thirteen HIMs posted at The Goat this morning for a standard issue beat down. Hopefully, YHC did not disappoint.

Quick warm-up and a short mosey to the island. Walking the bridge is not allowed, so we started off with a stupid shuffle, which quickly Omaha’d to a lunge walk. Mosey to the other bridge for another lunge walk across, then onto the back parking lot.

The Thang: 6 corner escalators! We started in the middle with 2 burpees, scatter shot to any corner for 10 hand release merkins. Back to the middle for 4 burpees, mosey to a different corner for 10 hand release merkins then 20 CDDs. Corner 3 was squats, corner 4 flutters, corner 5 side straddle hops, and corner six for American hammers. Each time in the middle increased the burpees by 2 until 12. Run it back down the escalator until time to head back.

Lunge walk, stupid shuffle, bear crawl, or whatever your PAX heart desired over the two bridges for home.


It was a honor to lead – Orangeman

Part 2 of VQ at Folsom

We had 13 HIM’s show up for part 2 of my VQ.

We then moseyed to flag at entrance of park stopping at each light (7 total) to do 5 merkins, 3 big boys and 1 burpee at each light.

At the flag, we did the pledge and moseyed back to tennis courts.
