Caney Creek Deck of Death

AO: Caney Creek

When: 04/18/2018


PAX (): Ha Ha, Birdhouse, Mulligan, Stay Puft, JR, Ihop, Sunshine, Isotope, Greenhouse, Moonshine, Nacho Libre, TO,

Another full house at Caney Creek this morning.  12 Pax gathered to relieve some post tax day stress.   YHC came equipped with some motivational music from the greatest rock and roll band of all time, The Who, a deck of cards with corresponding exercise list.

Warm Up

Up the stairs and two laps two laps around the the hill top.  Sunshine (still around for a final CC beatdown) was hot on YHC’s heals every step of the way, making these 54 year old legs move a lot faster than planned.  Back down the steps and circle up.  SSH, Abe Vigoda, Weed Pickers and Hill Billies.

The Thang

In the middle of the circle YHC placed the speaker, iPhone, deck of cards and corresponding exercise list.  Press play to start the action with Magic Bus and flipped a card, Jack of Hearts for Merkins.  The pax knocked out 20 Merkins, ran up and down the stairs and repeated until the song finished.  Another card was then flipped and a new exercise started for that song’s duration.  The beat down included:

  • Merkins (a few times)
  • Burpees
  • Flutter Kicks
  • Squats
  • American Hammer
  • Side Straddle Hops

The playlist included:

  • Magic Bus
  • I Can’t Explain
  •  5:15
  • The Real Me
  • The Seeker
  • Pinball Wizard
  • Slip Kid
  • My Generation
  • Join Together
  • Baba O’Riley

8:33 long Won’t Get Fooled Again was left off the list, this time.  We barely got into Baba O’Riley when time was up and time for COT.

We welcomed an FNG this morning.  Atlanta’s own Brandon McGraw and Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket was dubbed Madoff.  After further consideration, YHC really does not like that name and believes we might need to go with Sony, as in Sony MIchel who torched the Jackets for 85 yards and a TD last November.

The choice of The Who was a tribute to YHC’s pal Resistor from F3 Dash in Winston-Salem.  Resistor EH’d YHC into F3 in January 2017 and back in the 80s  took in a few Who concerts together including a dinner with the late great John Entwistle.

Wishing Sunshine safe travels as he head back home to Jacksonville.  We look forward to seeing you again.  Thanks for helping make Caney Creek happen.
