It’s still dark but we keep comin’

Happy to welcome an FNG today, Bosai. (He actually started on Monday at Kenan). Let’s get right into it… We started with a good warm up and since it was chilly, we did what I call a 5 x 100 to get us moving. Starting at the corner of the “Arena”, we ran to the […]

Block Party

YHC had the honor of closing out Green Acres’ month of OGs. There were some serious heavyweights who had come before so the task was daunting. At 5:25 when YHC arrived at the AO there were 5 or 6 PAX furiously lifting weights, coupons, and battle ropes. We made them put them away at 5:29 […]

Full Body Relays

YHC is wrapping up a month full of Qs, some that I made it to, and some that I thank the PAX for covering while I was on the IR. My creative tank was close to empty, until I recalled a workout I did at Romper Room as my first Q of the year. At […]

Fun with Acronyms

The game plan for today was utilizing the acronyms EMOM and AMRAP. The beauty of these is every pax can modify easily as needed. If 10 burpees a minute seems like a pipe dream, set your target for 6. Set your goal… whatever that number may be. If your Coxswain, perhaps you should make it […]

Remembering 8/24

YHC had already worked out most of a Q plan when he was shocked to hear about the untimely passing of Kobe Bryant. Now, it’s not like Kobe was YHC’s personal favorite player or anything like that. But YHC remembers Kobe being drafted as a high schooler, and (like many other PAX, he suspects), watched […]

The Merkin Tour of B.C.

I wasn’t planning on Q’ing the Rabbit this week but when Chum announced that he needed a sub because of a recent surgical procedure (one that I am going to be pursuing in the not so distant future) I thought that it would be good Karma to get out and take this one. So I […]
