Old and New Friends

This week Churham is placing a little extra emphasis on the form of common exercises: Merkin, Squat, and Burpee. It just so happens the world’s record for most push ups in an hours was beaten yesterday by a dude in Charlotte. He complete 3,050!!! It demonstrates why we need to focus on form. We’re not […]

Campus Tour

With Spring Break kicking off for many PAX it was great to see some of the regulars out in the gloom. YHC has missed the last 2 weeks at Kenan, so taking the Q was the motivation needed to ensure attendance. We’ve been giving Kenan Stadium and Hooker Fields quite a workout the past few […]

1 Timothy 4:8

You know I love Hero and Tribute WODs. It’s as close to a theme as you’re likely to get when this simpleton has the Q. My hero is Jesus. Today’s plan is intended as the first of many Tributes to the one who saves. Bible scripture will serve  triple duty. Firstly, it will provide a […]

One Grinding Moment

Didn’t plan it this way, but just so happened to grab the Q at Kenan during the first week of March Madness. So really had no choice but to theme the workout on UNC’s impressive overall track record in the NCAA Tournament. No one bothered with EC other than Nightshift’s warm-up jog. Probably just as […]

Making it to the “Show”

With all of the hard work my stellar Co-Q has done in bird-dogging Q’s throughout the entire Churham Region, including here at Kenan, it’s been tough to find a Q spot, but YHC was fortunate to grab today’s Q a few weeks back.  Our new Nant’an Te’o, (after recently taking over for Riggs and Adolphus), […]

We’re Getting Younger

I’ve been impressed by the condition of the pax at Kenan, especially considering the average age. It wasn’t uncommon to have up to half the pax get respect during nam-o-rama! Recently we’ve been blessed with an influx of youth. Almost half present today can still be on their parents’ health care! It’s inspiring to see […]

Taking it to 100

YHC was pumped to answer the call from Nightshift to come and Q Kenan for “Name That Q” Month. An AO that YHC doesn’t get to often, partially because of the slightly later time/kids early wake-ups, and partly because #the_eagle on Mondays is only ~250 yards from YHC’s house. But a fun location; many nearby […]
