3 HIM of Fleming Island posting in the gloom and wondering who left the ceiling fan on and why is it on full blast.  It was a breezy day that caused the 44-degree temp feel like it was 33. But YHQ had an idea to keep the pax warm.  Drumroll for the COP….

  • Burpees OYO x10

At this point, YHC announced to the pax (as if they didn’t know) that it was Groundhog’s Day.  And he then discussed that movie with Bill Murray that wasn’t necessarily the greatest, but it’s just one of those movies you end up stopping to check out each time you see in while channel surfing.  In this movie, Bill Murray’s character relives Groundhog Day over and over, until he can live it the right way… with that said, we resumed the COP…

The Thang

As previously mentioned, it is Groundhog’s Day, and you can’t have Groundhog’s Day without mentioning Punxsutawney Phil.  So YHC thought he would honor both with this beatdown that had the rest of the pax wondering… really?  

Punxsutawney Phil- 5 rounds of exercise with a 30-yard run between each exercise

  • P: Pullups x7 reps
  • H: Hand release merkins x14 reps
  • I: Iron Mike’s x21 reps
  • L: LBC’s x28 reps

Bill Murray’s character, Phil, was a reporter for WPBH Pittsburgh.  5 more rounds and 30-yard runs as previous…

  • W- Werkins x7 reps
  • P- Plank jacks x14 reps
  • B- Baryshnikov’s x21 reps
  • H- Hello Dolly’s x28 reps


Bill Murray’s character had to relive Feb 2nd over and over again until he got it right.  YHC talked about if you want to get better at something, then do it.  If you want to get better and running, start running.  If you want to get better at pull-ups, do pull-ups.  It’s not going to happen without effort.  Put the effort in, you will see results.
