This was the first Q in the cold for Powderkeg, so naturally it had to start out with 30x  Side-Straddle-Hops to warm up.  It has been said that whisky warms the cockles of your heart (whatever that is), but YHC figured that, on a cold morning, 10x hand-release clapping Merkins would have the same effect.  YHC (who had planned a partner workout), was dismayed when, at first, only 13 people showed up to the workout.  However, that would mean that we could do plenty more pull-ups, Mexican squats, and Pretzel crunches, in the return of the quadrangles.

However, due to reasons I will shortly explain, we didn’t end up getting to the quadrangles, so, we did the following:


10x pull-ups

30x Mex. Squats

30x(each leg), pretzel crunches, IC

20x Mex. Squats

10x pull-ups


And then we took off on an Indian Run.  On our way back into the pavilion, a blessing showed up.  It was Red Wire, the one gent YHC needed to begin a mega Dora.

YHC admits, however, the principle reason that I wanted to run another partner workout was because I wanted to experience the devil of my own creation, the North Korean Wheelbarrow*.  So, YHC got to do that for once, and instantly realized why the PAX so rue YHC’s workouts.

* Sorry, but I won’t explain this in the Backblast.  If I can, I will have it in the exercise dictionary, but that is still in the works.  It is hard-ish to describe.

So, after we finished our bout of unabashed Anti/Multi-Culturalism, we headed into the Mega Dora.

Of course, when we got there I had barely any time left, but here is what we got done:

50 Pull-ups (yes, I am insane)

100 Merkins

150 LBCs

What follows is everything YHC had planned after that:

200 Flutter Kicks

250 Mexican squats

300 Prisoner squats


Unfortunately, YHC was not given the chance to destroy the PAX’s legs.  Eh, I’ll have to try harder next time.
