Frolicking Through the Gloom

  • Workout Date - 11/17/2017
  • Q In Charge - Dr Phil
  • The PAX - Mint Julip, Boss Hog, Look Out Below, Urban, Goose Egg, Sammy, Whisper (Respect!), NYOPT, Benign, Mayo, Road Trip, Pine Tar, Deflated (Respect!), Nomad, Short Barrel
  • AO - Pitchfork

16 PAX fought off the fartsack for the weirdness of Pitchfork on this brisk dumbbell Friday morning. If you missed it, here’s the Cliff Notes version of what happened:

  • Whisper’s 250th post (he keeps detailed records apparently)
  • LOB was collecting $1 bills for a gift basket between trips to the woods
  • Sammy finally found an aerobic exercise that doesn’t make him feel winded so he was frolicky.
  • Mary was shut down by Goose Egg because YHC has a super sensitive gag reflex at 6:10 in the am apparently.
  • Short Barrel is still looking for someone to spot

Warm Up

  • SSH X 20 IC
  • Overhead Claps X 20 IC
  • 1 Lap

The Thang

9 cones in a not-so-straight line down the parking lot 3-4 yards apart, with farthest cone being approximately 40 yards from the “start line.” Each cone was assigned an exercise. Lunge walk as a group to the farthest cone. Do the assigned exercise for 1 minute. Turn and inch worm back to the previous cone leaving dumbbells there. Sprint back to the start. Repeato until all 9 cones have been visited.

Round 2 was the same set up with 2 changes. Trade lunge walks for high knee skips (Sammy’s favorite) and only 30 secs at each cone this time.


  1. Curls
  2. Squat Press
  3. Mountain Climbers
  4. Hand Release Merkins
  5. Chest Flys
  6. Straight Leg Dead Lifts
  7. Bent Over Rows
  8. Wood Choppers (alternating sides)
  9. Man Makers


Start with legs at 6 inches and hands at 6 inches over head holding 1 dumbbell. When YHC calls up, keep legs and arms straight bringing both straight up in the air and then back down to 6 inches.

This was 2 sets of 10, which would have been 20 if Goose Egg hadn’t shut down YHC’s count.

YHC has been absent due to work travel and sickness as of late, so it was great to be back among the weirdness and an honor to lead.
