When YHC pulled up to the The Ricky Bobby for a humid buttermilk beatdown lead only Nutri was in the lot! This from a site that usually draws 10-12 regulars. Hmmm. In rolled Bubba Sparks. Let’s get this thing started. Went like this starting at midfield:


SSH X 20

Cotton Pickers X 20

Grapevine stretches

Mtn. Climbers X 20

Merkins X 10

Easy lap

Head to the endline for some suicides

Start 5X

run to the “25” 10X and back to start

run to midfield 15X and back.

Round 1- HR merkins 5, 10 ,15

Round 2 – Big boy situps 5, 10, 15

Round 3 – CDDs 5, 10 ,15

Round 4 – Jump Squats 5, 10, 15

Easy lap

On the end line again for a little basketball drill I learned from Jim Laranaga in June of 1971 at Davidson College when he was an assistant to Terry Holland, the basic step-slide in the defensive stance. Coach Laranaga was @ 26 at the time. Maybe 27. Very competitive dude. Still have that baskeball camp photo somewhere.

Round 1 – step slide per Q, drop and do 1 burpee. Repeat thee times. Run back to the endline after each.

Round 2 – same as above 3X total repeats with 5 merkins on the down call.

Round 3 – same as above , change out merkins for werkins.

Over to the bleachers for 11s.

Bleachers – 10 dips.

Mosey half way across the field, American hammers.

Finish and do another lap.

Over to the COT area for Mary and finish.


Skeleton crew today but you only need a few good men to accomplish anything. All put in the work, all got better. At the end of the day that’s what it’s about. I left knowing I had accompished something today and that is a pretty solid bottom line.

Prayers up for Turtleman and others. Blood drive next week. Tesla is in. Are you? Why wouldn’t you be?!

Enjoyed the opportunity to lead today.
