“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” – John 1:1,4

YHC was over at the Hooch Monday, and a few PAX was asked to Q (won’t mention names here) who all gave  some excuse, and then YHC was asked to guest Q. Glad they did – was wondering how to get on the Q rotation, and happy to oblige, as this is my home away from home – The Hooch men know how to get things going!

The conditions were perfect – Low 40s with about 10-12  mph wind. We weren’t hanging around and wanted to get warm. Off we go, YHC looking for the track.

A quick mozey towards the track, stopping every now and then for SSHs, Merkins and Mountain Climbers until we got there.

The thang:

The Cooper – a brutal 10 laps starting each lap with 10 each of Burpees, Squats and Merkins, decreasing each round  by 1 until a final count of 1, with a lap in between.

When done, form up into an Indian Run and do The Bataan death march with 5 merkins, sprinting up to catch the group while tapping the last man and sprinting to the front.

Interrupting this evolution by 10 merkins each time in the fashion of mucho chesto – 10 each : normal, wide, diamond, left and right staggered.

Back to the flag with all you got – Flo proving to have the stamina to go all the way and finish first.


  • Flutters
  • High dolly
  • American Hammers
  • Box cutters


  • Slow is not in this group’s vocabulary – constantly moving.
  • Hooch men are solid to the core. Moving as one, they get it done – no man left behind, and no man left where they find him. This is how they live.


  • Prayers for work situations and family illnesses.
  • Knowing Christ is our light, we focus on Him and His Kingdom, and not on ourselves – #IamThird
