“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:17‬ ‭NIV‬‬


Barely able to walk after squirrels ruthless beat down on Thursday, YHC decided to lead the pax in a light recovery workout. Six brave man showed up in the gloom.

We began with some light stretching consisting of 20 Burpee’s Oyo and Mucho Chesto. We then took a light jog to the sandbags with each of us picking up two.

The pax picked up their bags with one in each hand and walked to the back of the baseball field working on their grip strength.

We stopped to do a set Of 20 bicep curls in cadence, 10 shoulder presses and 10 skull crushers with our sand bag. We repeated this after a quick breather.

Since the bags were getting a little heavy we decided to drag both bags while bear crawling for approximately 100 yards.

The pax then lightly jogged to the playground for a little fun. We played follow the Leader around the monkey bars and obstacles briefly stopping to do 10 pull-ups.  YHC was kind enough to not enforce the 30 burpee penalty for failing an obstacle.

We then jogged back to do another set of bicep curls, shoulder presses and Skull crushers. After the set, we did it cool down exercise consisting of 10 Burpee’s.

YHC then lead the pax with some light Mary work out. In cadence, we did 25 dying cockroaches, 25 side oblique crunches on each side, 25 Freddie Mercury‘s, 25 LBC’s, and 25 American hammers.

We each picked our bags back up and walked around working on our grip strength. As they got heavy again, we dropped to the ground and dragged them 100 yards while bear crawling. We then carried our bags around the field again working on our grip strength.

We finished with a light cool down stretch of 10 shoulder tap Burpee’s and superman. Being kind, YHC let the pax finish a little early.

Moleskin: as usual bowtie was the ultimate servant coming back to help the six with their bags. Captain D was his usual self complaining that he had to ruck solo. Flying tomato’s sandbag decided to Pee all over him which brought about laughter. Froyo’s sandbag got caught in his hair messing up his do.
