Getting BOMB’d

  • When: 05/22/18
  • QIC: RG3
  • The PAX: Rebar, Chum, Frank Lloyd Bunyan, Catskills, FNG (Claussen), and RG3

YHC and Chum arrived at the AO with 3 minutes to spare and discovered a bright-eyed FNG ready to go (Welcome “Claussen”). After a few introductions, 3 more PAX rolled an and we were ready to go. Let’s do it.


  • SSH x25
  • Frankenstein x10 ic
  • The chinook (overhead arm circles) x10 ic
  • Box jumps x 10 ic
  • Windmill x10 ic


Mosey to the circle


Partner up for a DORA but with specific exercises and counts: The duo performs exercises and reps as follows, one at a time while the other PAX ran the bus loop:

  • 50- Burpees
  • 100- Overhead Claps
  • 150- Merkins
  • 200- Big Boy Sit-ups
  • 250- Squats.

YHC totally underestimated the time it would take to complete the BOMBs (see COT) so ran out of time for the other 2 planned exercises.  Now I know!


Mosey to the circle

  • Box Cutter x10 IC
  • Flutter Kicks x20 IC
  • Homer to Marge x10 IC
  • Peter Parker x10 IC
  • Parker Peter x10 IC


  • Memorial Day at The Thicket starting at 0645 (1 hour later than normal given the holiday). Frank Lloyd Bunyan has the Q and there will be coffeteria afterwards, likely at Breakaway. Come on out.
  • Hump Day Happy Hour (HDHH) at Briar Chapel Tennis Court pavilion (eg, The Wall AO) on Wednesday, 5/23 starting at 7pm.


I tried a few new exercises today: The Chinook (warm-up, overhead circles) and the BOMBS (which took waaaay more time than I anticipated it would, for the record!). It’s a nice reminder about how important it is to occasionally break from routine and try something new and challenge yourself. You’re not sure what the outcome will be and that’s partially the point.  Life is full of uncertainties and the key is to embrace and not run from them. So whether it’s your work life, family life, etc, remember to break from the routine and try your hand at something new. Until next time. Aye.


Great to see an FNG out today (Welcome, Claussen).  Poor guy is from Mt. Olive (eg, pickle country), hence the name (the better pickle).
