  • QIC: Drone
  • The PAX: Farah & Farah, Snuffy, Jumanji, Big Bird, OTC, LIFO, Feud, Purifier, Heisenberg

10 of the usual Jax Pax suspects posted to Anthill for a jug-laden pain party and put in a hard morning’s work in the gloom.  Conditions: pleasantly un-sweltering and un-swampy.  All exercises with asterisks were performed with milk jugs.

The Thang:


  • 10 x SSH* (IC)
  • 20 x LBAC* (fwd & bkwd) (IC)
  • 20 x Don Quixote* (IC)
  • 40 x Flutter kicks (IC)

Mosey to picnic tables

  • 40 x Bulgarian split squats on tables (20 each leg) (IC)
  • 30 x Ballerina toe lifts w/ tricep extensions* (IC)
  • 4:00 AMRAP – 10 table jumps/10 burpees

Mosey back to field for COP

  • 2 x 30 sec. Al Gore*
  • Captain Thor* (OYO) – 1 big boy sit up/4 American Hammers up to 10 BBSU/40 AH
  • Princess Tea Party – 20 x Pattycake Merkins IC + 30 sec. Partner People’s Chair; repeato

Mosey to basketball court

  • Lunge suicides*
    • 10 x Curls for the girls*
    • 10 x Crunchy frogs* (thanks LIFO for the form correction)
    • 10 x Tricep extensions*
    • 10 x LBAC*

Mosey back to flag, detour for pullups to failure on monkeybars


Captain Thor, which Big Bird introduced to the Jax Pax a few weeks ago, is a real crowd pleaser, especially with jugs.  Probably the most expressive grunts, wheezes and groans YHC has heard from the Pax in quite some time, so we must have been doing something right.

As always, great effort from the motley crew and it’s a pleasure to Q with all of you.  No running today (a first for YHC), but I think the amount of lunging and squatting left the Pax feeling like we did.  Probably just as well since OTC has been planning a return to the Stein for BOHICA on Thursday.  Bring your traveling shoes!

Announcements/Prayer Requests:

  • Fall festival at Feud’s church on Saturday for those interested
  • Friend of Rev’s (Elizabeth?) dealing with cancer
  • Snuffy joining church elders and deacons for important regional meeting this weekend, pray for wisdom, clarity and unity
  • Safety and fun for OTC and BB at mud run this weekend
