15 HIMs came to the gloom after the longest night of the year. That should’ve meant that everyone got a good night’s rest in preparation for a beatdown. The goal for today was to keep moving. Here’s what happened…

Disclaimer while others carried on their own conversation but also felt the need to hurry me through said disclaimer. The giving Sargento a hard time continues.


Side Straddle Hops IC, Bring Sally Up for all the haters.

It was lamented by some that I didn’t have the trusty JBL with me. I figured I’d mix it up a bit and just go with mumblechatter but now that I know there are fans of my musical offerings I won’t make that mistake again.

Mosey to the side of the school for the Thang

Super Mega Figure 8!

Going all the way around the upper parking lot, cross at the dip stobs and then around the entrance “circle”. You know, making a figure 8 pattern. The exercises along the way were, all 20 counts:

Merkins (led my the president of the MHC no less!)

WWI situps



Flutter Kicks

Diamond Merkins (as suggested by Broke)

American Hammers (from Suess)

Lunges (this was supposed to be Monkey Humpers I think)

Rosco started going the wrong direction because he was following Dr. Seuss so they were reprimanded. We got back to the start and did the crossing exercises of Dips and Flutters then a count-off of HIM.

Go again for round 2 but this time go all the way around the school instead of just the entrance “circle”. We forgot to do the Monkey Humpers the first time around so we did those this time.

After another count-off at the cross point, we headed off for a 3rd round. This time we did 40 Monkey Humpers to catch up and 40 American Hammers because we forgot the last time.

Once the 6 was in we fellowship moseyed back to the start for a bunch of Shoulder Taps and Nolan Ryan’s. Time!

Broke asked why the president of the MHC would do so much upper body and shoulder work. I figured working on what you’re weakest at is a good way to improve. Or, in hindsight, maybe I was just doing what the weinke said to do (it was first used created in July 2017 for the Yank so maybe my disrespect for Merkins is a newer thing). Either way, we did a lot of upper body compared to most of my Q’s.
