Bocce Ball Blowout

It was a beautiful Wednesday morning in Chatham County NC. YHC had signed up to Q the perennial powerhouse of workout destinations, #thebighouse. The most resent boot camp workouts in Chatham have involved a significant amount of cinder block work.  The most recent running workouts in Chatham have involved a significant amount of humidity. It […]

Happy Star

I’ve had this Happy Star workout on a sticky note on my desk for months just waiting to break it out.  Today was that day.  Read below for details on the Happy Star.  Weather note: it’s summer in North Carolina, aka humid AF. Warm-Up We actually spent a fair amount of time warming up, including […]

Birds Arent Real

So today is national conspiracy day. At least it was at the big house. The plan was to get in a warm up while sharing some great conspiracy theories you can read about on the internet and then during the main event to give the history of the “Birds Aren’t Real” movement. Why birds aren’t […]

Building Materials

Briar Chapel is a fast-growing neighborhood that has been under development for nearly 15 years. Recent supply shortages for the local builders had meant that building materials would sit unused as other pieces of the building project were on backorder. As a result, a giant stack of cinderblocks had been sitting for the last month […]

Return to the (bootcamp) gloom

With the Tobacco Road half behind me, it was time to get back to boot camps. Pool season is upon as amiright? lol. Well there’s no better place to start than at the Big House. I dusted off an old Dirty Macdeuce workout, extended the running loop and thought that would cut it. Alas my […]

Bernie’s Bootcamp

YHC’s first experience with a bootcamp workout came in the form of Bernie Conklin’s BC Fit program. Bernie is a good dude. I’ve tried to EH him to F3, but don’t think he loves the idea of non-professionals leading. Oh well. What I really admired about Bernie is that he pursued what made him happy. […]

Lucky Charms

Your BB soundtrack Plan was to co-Q with Uzi for his birthday.  ME was to include NO running and a lot of burpees.  Uzi had to bail in order to self-quarantine, so YHC decided to scrap the initial plan and do something completely different.  Late night preblast suggested a record may be broken. YHC practically […]

Mostly Built Pyramid

  YHC had no real plan coming into the Q but the night before was hearing the chatter begging for a finely curated playlist to workout to so I obliged with a wonderful mix of 90s/00s Rap and Hip Hop. Warm-up SSH x 20 Imperial Walkers x 10 Good Mornings x10 Willie Mays Hayes X […]
