  • When: 06/11/2021
  • AO: Tequila Sunrise
  • QIC: Flintstone
  • FNG's: Gator (John Neidenbach)
  • PAX: Bubba Sparxxx, Tesla (R), Breaker Breaker (R), BOS (R), Cinderella, 5 Degrees, Pillager, Boudin, Virus (R), Nutria

Bubba Sparxxx EH game is strong, pulling in a FNG and a Kotter to join 10 others for a dirty dozen on a fine morning at Tequila Sunrise.  Here’s what I remember:

The Thang:

Started in the circle with all exercises done in cadence:

  • 10 x Seal Jacks
  • 10 x Mike Tysons
  • 10 x Jane Fondas L
  • 10 x Jane Fondas R
  • 15 x Crab Marches
  • 15 x Dying Cockroaches
  • 25 x Flutter Kicks
  • Knee to chest stretch L & R
  • 10 x Single Leg Glute Bridge L
  • 10 x Single Leg Glute Bridge R
  • 25 x Penguins
  • 25 x Toe Touches
  • 15 x Ski Abs

15 minutes and 0 miles to show for it.  Time to get some runnin in.  Down into Eagle Park to the intersection of Assembly and Blueberry for some hill work.

Triple Nickel

  • Bottom of the Hill – 5 Burpees
  • Top of the Hill – 5 Burpees

Repeat 5 times

We returned to the flag with the sun on it’s way up and a much lighter area.  The PAX noticed an area marked off by cones and 2 gym bags full of round objects.  Rewind the tape to Saturday when YHC had the Q at the Bunker, and we used the dodgeballs to play 21.  I had a few PAX say that they thought we were going to play dodgeball that day and sounded disappointed we didn’t.  Well another opportunity presented itself, so YHC wasn’t going to let the PAX down twice in a row.  After counting off, we played 3 rounds of dodgeball.  Some real rifles for arms among this group of PAX, which should be expected because for most if not all of us, we were athletes in a past life.  There were a few shots below the belt, but we escaped the stupidity largely intact.  Good times.

Wrapped up with a little more work in cadence:

  • 10 x Crab Marches
  • 5 x Single Leg Glute Bridge L
  • 5 x Single Leg Glute Bridge R

and that was that.


  • Blood Drive – June 16th
  • F3 Dads – June 19th – Bubba Sparxxx , Gavel, & Nutria to Q
  • NUOS workout at Gashouse and The Yank

Prayer Requests:

  • Turtleman
  • Orangeman
  • Rebar
  • Doodles
  • Buckeye’s roomate
  • Rudolph’s family
  • Breaker Breaker’s son moving


Two great additions to the TS PAX with Gator and 5 degrees.  Both men pushed strong through the Triple Nickel and rolled right along with the group.  Neither was the Six, which speaks to their level of fitness coming in.  Looking forward to seeing both men regularly at TS.

Good to see BOS and Virus back after their time away.  Both have been vital to my personal growth, and stuck with me in my early days when I was just struggling.  “So I’ll see you tomorrow?” was a typical  response from BOS, and without a good reason not to, I guess I just had to keep coming.  Better for it.

Thanks for the opportunity to lead.

    Glad to pull in some HIMs to join in the fun! FNG ‘Gator’ already came out for a 2nd beatdown at Mt. Hollywood, and still wasn’t at the 6. Breaker and I will get that Kotter ‘5 Degrees’ to start posting regularly, after his 1-year hiatus.
