Return of the McDeuce

There was one for EC.  That was YHC.  With no light and scared of snakes in the dark, YHC headed for the track.  Met the PAX at 5:30 and got started.  Basic warm up of SSH, WMH, BAC, squats. A short run to the big hill.  Sprint to the top, 10 burpees and plank.  Bear […]

Bend It Like Beckham

September 4, 2017. Labor Day. My first post @ Devil’s Ridge and I remember it like yesterday. Beautiful Fall morning. Started out with EC pullups (pulls, squats, swings) @ Buehler Trail parking lot. There must have been 10-15 guys out there in the pitch dark. (Note: I couldn’t do more than 2 pull ups in […]

Labor (Intensive) Day

Well, merkin Monday wasn’t going to run itself. I decided to try my hand at the tradition that was taking Devil’s Ridge by storm. So YHC and 6 PAX decided to ignore conventional wisdom and work hard to make this Labor Day workout count. Props to Netgeo showing up with a weight vest and Fake […]

Campus Tour and Tabata

Last time YHC Q’d Devil’s Ridge was Memorial Day.  Attendance was pretty low, and we had a FNG leave mid workout.  The goal was to not repeat this again. YHC put a request on slack for PAX to wear bright clothing and wear headlamps.  It was time YHC finally learned his way around Duke. Warm-Up […]

One Two Punch

The Q sheet was empty and the call went out.. Toolbox answered with excitement…. YHC latched on (because lets face it, there was a >50% chance I wasn’t going to show up…). It was humid, hot, and 25 pax got their week started on the right foot. YHC started off with a gentle warmup. Warmup: […]

The Man-Maker Mile

“We must be swift as the coursing river With all the force of a great typhoon With all the strength of a raging fire Mysterious as the dark side of the moon.” – Sun Tzu YHC has been contemplating the existential question of manhood: when does one become a man? What are the qualifications to […]

Stepping out of my house this morning, the first thing I noticed was that it was the perfect work out weather.  I hoped the plan I had in store would complement the morning.  With three coupons packed up, I made my way to Devil’s Ridge.  When I got there at 0520, there were only a […]
