Things got ugly

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 […]

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 […]

Determined to Prosper

YHC was excited to take the reins for the first Piranha of the year, and even more excited that this fell on my birthday. As you guys are painfully aware, I typically enjoy Qs with themes, props, plots and puns. After a little research for the number 48, I was completely underwhelmed by what I […]

2020: No Ragrets at The Piranha

No Ragrets 12/29/20 (if TL:DR….the message is to live with No Ragrets and not just EMBRACE the positive, but BE the positive!) YHC was excited to have the last Q of the year at the Piranha. My 2020 did not start too well, having ruptured my Achilles tendon and undergoing surgical repair on 12/23/2019. I […]

Earning our Christmas cookies

4 PAX met in the early gloom for some Aquamanmaker EC action and 10 PAX were all-in for the ME. YHC wanted to push it a little bit harder today in anticipation of a couple weeks full of Holiday festivities and Christmas cookies. So that’s just what we did… Warmup: Happy Jacks x20 (after the […]
