NMM:

So as YHC reflects on today’s festivities, one thing is for sure, it was not planned out well.  I hope those in attendance got all they wanted since we had to call time after only 4 trips up and back.  YHC felt a tinge of the following: 1) don’t Q it, if you can’t do it and b) Is there an old man’s version of this (as 57 YO Ha-Ha raced passed me).

So great to have the Willy Lomans in town from Alpha, Mud Island and out East.  Thank yall for putting forth max effort and max attitude.

Kotters to The Jeweler and Red Bag…two great younger PAX that are so fun to be around and to get smoked by.

Also great to have the one and only Floppy Disk post at the Hill for the first time in a while.  Sadly, he failed a piss test by the IOC after.  See you in 6 months.

One PAX posed the question, “Why do we need a partner?” In true BV fashion YHC responded, “To drag your ass around.”  Turns out I was the one being drug around.  T Claps to Cinderella for partnering up w Drifter and for Rabbit allowing me to shadow him once Pre Vac well Pre Vac’d.

BH:

Lots to be thankful for as we round up this school year and also a lot of prayer requests passed along for consideration.  If you were there, try to remember one PAX to pray for and if you are just reading this in the comfort of your Fartsack, post tomorrow so you can have someone to pray for.

NO HILL NEXT WEEK>>>WE WILL ALL CONVERGE AT 413STRONG TO GET THOSE MEN LAUNCHED.  SEE ME OR TOGA FOR DETAILS.

YHC,

At 0530, QIC did a quick disclaimer and decided to skip the WOR to mosey to the weight room and dive right in.  All PAX partnered up, grabbed a plate (45lbs) per person and moseyed to the top of the hill at the east side of the football bleachers for three rounds of fun.

    • Clean and Press

    • Floor Press

Mosey back to the weight room to return the plates and call it a day.

Good work fellas!

GI distress at The Hill

 

QIC:  Skid Mark

PAX: The Ruckers (Bagger Vance, Funyuns, Vegemite); CAPSLOCK, Prevac, Big Stick (LIFO),  Dr. Smartt, Barely Legal, Spark Plug (FNG),

It was a cold morning as the PAX showed up. A pre-ruck of Bagger Vance and Funyuns passed by to pick up Vegemite in the parking lot for continued rucking through the campus. The remaining 7 Pax circled up for the disclaimer and what turned out to be a true gut busting workout, as we lost 1 PAX to an emergent deuce and finished the workout with a 4 minute splashing of merlot.

We started with a quick mosey around the northern half of the campus and then back to the parking lot where we circled up for warm-o-rama.

Warm-o-rama – SSH, Good mornings, Willy Mays, Arm Circles x2, Merkins in cadence

Count off by 2’s – separate into 2 teams for a cold spring morning teams race.

Each team ran to the following places (in different order) and completed tasks to see who could finish first as a team.

  • Football Field
    • 100yd Merkin Suicide (add 1 merkin per 20 yrds)
  • Playground
    • 25 pullups and 100 Squats per PAX, split however
  • Amphitheater
    • ½ PAX Amphitheater Jumps x2; ½ do handstands, then flapjack
    • 2 laps around the quad loop (once for each partner)
      • Wheelbarrow up the stairs
      • Jog the loop and back down then flapjack.
      • If odd number, 1 PAX can bear-crawl the stairs x2

Team 1 was the first to finish but lost Big Stick due to emergent bathroom needs.

We then moseyed behind the football field bleachers and partnered up for some buddy love time and completed the following:

  • Partner 1: 20 Squats; Partner 2: Balls to the Wall AMRAP – Flapjack
  • Partner 1: People’s chair; Partner 2: Flutter kicks x 20 ct – Flapjack
  • Partner 1: LBCs x30; Partner 2: Plankjacks x30 – Flapjack

Mosey to the football field for 100yd sprints x4, then back down to the parking lot for some music and Mary.

Music: Mustang Sally – Buddy Guy version.

-Merkins for each “Sally”; Plankjacks for each “ride”

Mumblechatter arose about the origin story of the song as BV, Funyuns, and Vegemite joined back in at this point. In addition, we had our second loss of PAX to GI distress as Barely Legal proceeded to splash merlot repeatedly for the entire song.  I guess he really doesn’t care for the blues.

Finally, we finished with a quick succession of Flutter kicks, slutter kicks, and box cutters

BH: Come out to Battleground tomorrow (off McEwin just east of I-65) for the convergence workout for Spicoli. Apparently board shorts are the garment of choice for tomorrow.

Farmers Walking in a Winter Wonderland

1. Why is there snow on the ground in March in Nashville?

2. 13 PAX didn’t seem to mind as they came out to partake in the fun that is The Hill.

PAX: Frugal Macdoogal (QIC), Foxtrot Talks a Lot, Money Shot, Tampa Libra, Tokyo Rose, Lunch Lady, Vegemite, CAPSLOCK, Black Widow, Bicentennial Man, Big Stick, Grease Trap, Bagger Vance

Grease Trap and Bagger Vance elected to get a lovely ruck in in preparation for their upcoming events while the rest of the PAX moseyed down to the weight room.

WOR:

SSH x 10, Squats x 10, Good Mornings x 10, WMH x 10

 

THANG:

We partnered up and grabbed a trap bar (135lbs.), dumbbells (20-25lbs.), and a jump rope per group and then headed out to the front of the library.

Exercise one: Partner One farmers walk around the library loop, stopping halfway through for 10 trap bar deadlifts. Partner Two burpees until partner begins deadlifts. Partner Two sprints to switch with Partner One – gets trap bar, deadlifts, then farmers walk back to starting point while Partner One sprints back to starting point and does burpees until partner arrives.

Exercise two: Same as exercise one, except dumbbell curl instead of burpees.

Exercise three: Same as above, but jump rope instead of curls.

Exercise four: Same as above, but dumbbell shoulder press instead of jump rope.

Exercise five: Partner One trap bar squat jumps x 20 while Partner Two jump ropes.  Switch and repeat.

Exercise six: Partner One trap bar shrugs x 30 while Partner Two merkins. Switch and repeat.

Exercise seven: Partner One trap bar calf raises x 30 while Partner One american hammers.

Mosey to weight room to return weights, grab dumbbells, and head out to amphitheater.

Exercise eight: Curl Train – curls x 8 each arm with 10lbs, 12lbs, 15lbs, 20lbs, 25lbs, 30lbs, then back down 30, 25, 20, 15, 12, 10.  PAX get in a line and start doing burpees when the first person begins.  When the first person ends (and each person thereafter), he does AJs (amphitheater jumps) until all PAX finish.  Unfortunately, we ran out of time and QIC called it early.

Mosey to top lot for COT.

Done!

An off road mosey behind the baseball field led us up to the football field.

Mosey down to the amphitheater and partner up.

Partner One does 4 amphitheater jumps (AJs) while Partner Two decline merkin then rotate.  Rinse and Repeat.

We followed that up by running the Quad Loop then immediately in to two AJs.  Rinse and Repeat x 3.

We then partnered up for some partner AJs x 8.

COT

Great work today fellas!  There were some announcements about some biscuit run and some other dates that I’ve forgotten, but I’m sure BV has slacked about it, so check it out.

As a reminder, we’re planning on having a quick devotion after each Hill workout.  Today, BV shared about our calling as husbands to love our wives like we do Jesus and be intentional in our relationship with them.  It was a great work and encouragement to me as I definitely give leftovers too often when things get busy.   Pop-A-Lock will be sharing next week, but feel free to sign up on the Q signup beside The Hill workout Q signup.

Blessings,

Frugal

NMM:

Fantastic to have Red Bag back out with us this am. Kotters to Too Tall as well for being back. Yall be sure to Re-EH a brother you haven’t seem in a while. He will appreciate it and we will all be better for it.

A little MC from YHC during Mary RE: Standards and Accountability. It’s a dichotomy of sorts when you try to enforce Standards after you’ve told PAX to MAN (modify as necessary). Maybe that’s just a personal dilemma.  Anyhoo, great to be able to lead.

As you may expect PreVac was at the front of the lead lap along w Red Bag. May be time for a piss test for those dudes.

BH:
Devo for 5-10 Minutes post The Hill next week will be led by Frugal, YHC will take week II, need takers for the next couple weeks.

Get your Full EH on, the days are getting longer and warmer, now is the time to get some Sad Clowns out in the Gloom with us.

Look for launch info for Nolensville…@unt Bea, Numbtucks and Tebow will be the Redwoods down there.

Service Project for Feb reach out to Dupree
