Beware the Crunchlady

This is why we can’t have nice things. Wanted to treat the PAX to a Halloween-themed playlist while we cycled through stations. Was going great until about 0600 when Lunchlady Doris came screaming around the bend and ran over the speaker that was on the sidewalk. Now, why did I choose to put it over […]

Piranha 3rd anniversary

10 PAX met on this chilly October morning in celebration of Scapula’s 3rd anniversary among the PAX. And, incidentally, to acknowledge the 3rd anniversary of The Piranha’s official founding! It’s been amazing to see the leadership of so many guys who stepped up and made the Piranha a community, in a way that Brick and […]

DJ Jazzy Floyd

13 PAX (and several who did EC) rolled into the Parkwood Elementary parking lot, fresh off completing (and dominating) the F3 IronPAX Challenge. YHC had asked them to arrive with a cinder block and their dancing shoes. I wanted this workout to accomplish 3 things: Be fun, Be tough, and have zero percent funk music. […]

Things got ugly

17ishPAX met in the oppressively humid gloom at the Friendliest AO in Churham for a little heavy sweating and table dancing, courtesy of YHC. 3 for EC. Warmup: SSH IC x47 WMH IC x10 Good mornings IC x10 Slow Merkins IC x10 Parker Peters IC x10 Spiderman Merkins IC x10 Mosey to the back parking […]

11s, Jacks,11 types of Jacks, because my Jack is 11.

My youngest turns 11 today. He helped me devise this workout. I should have made him get up and get after it! He loves baseball, so we threw in some DIAMOND Merkins, and the BEAR crawls are for his favorite team, the Cubs. We went deep into the Exicon, finding ALL the ‘ Jacks’ we […]

And I Was Like, ‘That Log Had a Child…’

Today is May the Fourth, Star Wars day. PAX had some fun with the many Star Wars parodies out there, both on Slack and during today’s themed workout. (Today’s headline is a reference to one of said parodies.) The workout itself was intended to pay tribute to the 9-part movie saga and to that imposing […]

The Storm before the Storm

On the eve of the soft launch of The Kings Dominion, 12 Pax got after it on an absolutely beautiful morning.   Crisp and cool, and maybe a little too quiet.  The kind of calm which precedes a major storm.  Things got ugly quickly. Warm up IW x 20 IC LBAC x 10 and reverse […]

Grip It and Rep It

To honor the 1,084 Churham PAX (and counting) listed on Slack, we busted out 1,084 reps at The Piranha today. YHC knows that 1,000ish reps is pushing what’s possible in 45 minutes, after he led a Devil’s Ridge workout back in 2019 honoring Coach K’s career wins at the time of 1,059. (Very out of […]

Take Your Block to Work Day

Max Power

“Nobody snuggles with Max Power. You strap yourself in and feel the Gs!” – Homer Simpson Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and YHC unashamedly lifted today’s proceedings from a Peppermint Pattie Q a few weeks back at TBL. It’s you versus you, essentially, with a nice accountability wrinkle thrown in there. Mine differed […]
