8-29-2022-Schools Back

August 29, 2022

WHEN: 08/29/2022
QIC: Brotox
PAX: Quicken, Dueling Banjos, Bada Bing, Little Piggy, Duplo (briefly)

Today marks the first day of school for Chatham County so YHC promised to have this morning’s festivities wrapped up by 6:15.  It didn’t matter much, the nervous anxiety of the PAX (or their M) got the best of many today which left us with only 5 brave souls for our workout (plus a random Duplo sighting as he recovers from elbow surgery).


Warm Up

The usual stuff…Side Shuffle Hops, Willie Mays Hays, Imperial Walkers, Harvesters, Seal Claps, Overhead Claps, Mountain Climbers, Merkins, etc.


The Thang

We moseyed to the cinder block pile, each acquired a block, and lined up for this little number:

  • 10 Squat Thrusters, block carry to the other side of the parking lot, 10 Merkins, block carry back.
  • 10 Squat Thrusters, farmer’s carry to the other side, 10 Merkins, farmer’s carry back
  • 10 Squat Thrusters, overhead carry to the other side, 10 Merkins, overhead carry back

We then moseyed back to the AO where we picked up Duplo, broke into teams of 3, and played a little tic-tac-toe racing game where teams of PAX take turns racing down to the tic-tac-toe board and moving 1 of 3 markers around.  The first team to get tic-tac-toe wins.  We played this 4 times total I believe.

Moseyed back to our cinder blocks and repeated the above routine but with Goblet Squats and Bent Over Rows instead of Squat Thrusters and Merkins.  Then moseyed back to the AO for the final game.

The final game was a cone game where pairs of PAX line up across from each other in a low squat hold.  The ‘caller’ calls out toes, knees, head and the PAX move their hands to the appropriate body part.  When the caller says cone the PAX across from each other try to grab the cone as quickly as possible.  Winners do 3 merkins, losers do 3 burpees.  We went 5 rounds so everyone had the chance to be the ‘caller’.


We took turns calling out Mary exercises including WWIIs, Box Cutters, Freddy Mercuries, Homer 2 Marge, and Chilly Willies.


  • T&P to Montecristo as he recovers from surgery.
  • The Thicket will be closed next Monday for Labor Day but convergence options are available at Morning Wood and Kenan for those interested.


Don’t let the many other priorities of life take away the need to carve out your own personal time, be it for exercise or another endeavor (YHC felt like he might have been preaching to the choir on this one).  Until next time, aye!
