Jackie, Wilt and Walter: Guides to Growth and Greatness

Posted on

As YHC was pondering a theme for my second Q at The Bullpen in downtown Durham, two ideas converged: February being Black History Month Durham’s rich legacy related to the civil rights movement as reflected in our city’s urban art With those two notions in mind, YHC mashed up the following Q to make 10 […]

Happy Q

Posted on

Introduction: As we bid farewell to the month of January and welcome in February, YHC makes another trip around the sun and with it goes his memory (I apologize to the 1 PAX I am shorting right now who attended the workout).  YHC was more terrified with the extra early 4:30am posting for EC and […]

Corner Burpees, Quarter Murph & Men on the Moon

Posted on

What happens when you ask your M, “How might you torture a bunch of men on a Thursday morning?” Well, she says something like, “Hmmm…how about make them do 100 burpees?” To honor my wife and ensure that PAX experienced the workout of “the century,” that became the day’s mission. But first 4 PAX (Tatertot, […]

Everybody wants to be a beast…

YHC loves the Bullpen site and is always eager to post just to see where the Q that day will take us.  Today I had the privlege of leading the PAX on a balmy 45 degree morning.  YHC always likes to move when he is in charge so that we did as 5:30 struck we […]

Three Periods of Fun

Posted on

YHC grew up spending his winters in ice arenas throughout Michigan. The gloom this morning felt about the same temperature, and after the workout I smelled about the same too.  Appropriately I had three periods of fun ready for the PAX to enjoy this winter morning.  Today being my first Q, the cold was a […]

Rise Up!

The Bullpen is seeing some changes–a shift in site Qs, a possible change in brick availability. Those changes left YHC planning a workout today with bricks that we could not get access to. Time to improvise! Warmup: 20 SSH 10 Good Morning 10 Willie Mays Hayes 10 slow merkins 30 air squats   We moseyed […]

All I want for Christmas is to do arms & core!

Bullpen needed a Q late in the game so YHC felt it was a perfect time for Chubbs to pop his cherry.  Off we went as we both decided to co-Q at the Bullpen.  This is YHC’s favorite site as you can always be on the move and find different places to work! Warmup SSH […]

Bear Crawl Agility Test is born at the Bullpen

Posted on

YHC’s original goal was to attend a workout at every Site in the Churham area, when the Master Q challenge came along, it seemed natural to change that Goal to Q at every site in the Churham area.   The first Q (July 5th) was the hardest.   The Q’s have become less difficult, the workouts still kick […]

The Most Fun You Can Have in the Rain at 5:30 AM!

Eight brave PAX emerged from the fartsack and braved the cold and rain for the Bullpen! Honestly, YHC would have fartsacked too if given the option, it’s a great day to sleep! Nickelback crushed an EC Ruck solo this AM prepping fro the Chapel Hill GoRuck Tough next Friday! tClaps to him for doing this […]

Porta-Tot

Nine PAX rolled in to ReCity. YHC’s favorite time of the year – dry, cold, and worth it when you get up and get moving. YHC took the Q since the Bullpen Signup Sheet seems to be riding the struggle-bus. A challenge to the regulars at Bullpen – sign up to Q three times in […]
