Mt Hollywood   5/31/21

The Memorial Day edition of Mount Hollywood brought six Pax out on a cool morning to honor those that have lost their lives in military service to our country.  Thanks to all the families who have lost loved ones while in the military.  Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.  Each one us are indebted to your sacrifice.  Our freedom was paid for buy their lives!

Here is how the workout went:

Hillbilly Walkers IC x 20

Goof Balls IC x 20

Eskimo Merkins up to 9


Mosey along Catawba to Oakland street.  Stopped and did 5 Burpees.   Mosey to the corner of Oakland and West Central St. for 5 more Burpees.  Mosey up to the field beside the elementary school for Belches which are………..

Pax lays flat on the ground in a line, Q says go. Everyone hops up similar to recovering from a burpee, and sprints 5 – 10 steps, then dives down flat on the ground remaining in line. Essentially, you’re advancing the field without the enemy fire being able to smoke you. Go hard, go quick. After getting to your resting place, complete upper, and core routines, then do a different upper, core routine, then belch back to the starting point, mission accomplished.<br /> Best on grassy fields in the gloom with some morning dew, some dives have slides, one must reverse low crawl to get back to the line or forward low crawl to advance to the line.

Alternating Side Squats IC x 10

American Hammers IC x 10

Backward Lunges IC x 10

Six shooters IC x 5 each side

Belch Back

Alternating Side Squats IC x 10

American Hammers IC x 10

Backward Lunges IC x 10

Six shooters IC x 5 each side

About this time Montross says something like a “Dirt workout is like a Bob Ross painting show”.  Mild mannered and soft spoken.  I guess I need to step it up a notch or two.


Mosey to the field in front of the middle school for the Big Bang.

PAX form small circle, everyone in a plank, shoulder-to-shoulder. Place headlamp in the center. Q calls out a number and exercise. For example, “10 burpees,” means PAX stand up in an explosion of energy, run directly away from center of circle 10 yards/paces and do 10 burpees, then run back to the center and plank for the 6. Each PAX must find their own route away from the center of circle. Obstacles–ditches, trees, pits–are encouraged, but next round can’t start until all PAX accounted for. Generally performed in increasing counts (10 paces/reps, 20 paces/reps, 30 paces/reps, 40 paces/reps, 50 paces/reps) representing the ever-expanding universe.


10 paces – 10 Diamond Merkins

20 paces – Crunchy Frogs

30 paces – Flutter Kicks (count 1 leg)

40 paces – Little Orhan Annie’s (20 each side)

50 paces – Air Presses

60 paces – LBC’s

70 paces – squats

80 paces – Overhead claps

Mosey back to the flag.

Thanks to attending gentlemen!
