Explos-PEN

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, YHC has not been working in the office, and therefore not in downtown Durham on weekday mornings, and therefore not attending the Bullpen, for over a year. With YHC’s return to the office in March, his return to the Bullpen was inevitable and overdue. That return occurred on 4/8 and […]

Some Marys I Know

Sherwin had reached out to the Churham Site Qs, requesting that we make a visit to the Bullpen.  When I first moved to North Carolina, I lived in Durham, and a part of my heart remains there.  So I obliged the callout by signing up to Q.  This seemed like a good idea until I […]

At the Movies: Training Montage

Y’all have seen Rocky or Karate Kid or [insert your favorite sports / super hero movie here]. And what’s the best part of the movie? The fight scenes, of course. But before the fight scenes comes…the training montage. Yes, any great action flick worth it’s muster has some sort of kick a– music playing underneath […]

DUCHAMP

YHC is an artist. I figured a needed to add a bit of Mind to the Body, Mind, Spirit continuum so I created an art historically themed workout. Using D.U.C.H.A.M.P as structure. Pulling from F3 exicon exercises beginning with corresponding letter in Marcel Duchamp’s last name. Make sense? Robert-Henri Marcell Duchamp was an artist. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcel_Duchamp […]

Like Blockwork

It had been months since YHC had been to the Bullpen, which made it especially good to be back out with the PAX of downtown Durham. In thinking about a theme for the Q, YHC centered on the user of cinder blocks. Most of us have experienced cinder blocks as notoriously effective in delivering a […]

Escalating in new territory

Back from vacation and ready to get back to the school year routine, YHC decided I may as well get on a Q sheet or two. If you’ve not Qed, I highly recommend it. It feels good to give back to the PAX, its fun to do the exercises that you need to complement your […]
