Scar was kind enough to post at the Hooch on Monday, and he mentioned there were some open Q spots at the Gladiator. So YHC grabbed the keys and took the Alpha’s newest AO for a test drive. Judging by the salty discharge pouring from the pax, it was a successful test drive. Here’s what happened.


  • SSH
  • Weedpickers
  • Merkins
  • Imperial Walker

The Thang:

Lineup at one end of the soccer field for Charles Bronson. Sprint to other end, army crawl for 10 yards, mosey back. Perform 50 reps of various exercises with another sprint/crawl/mosey in between each exercise. SSH, merkins, burpees, LBCs, squat jumps. Some Mary while the 6 finished, but the pax weren’t finished. Mosey to the other end for wheelbarrow mucho chesto. Partner 1 wheelbarrows to 18 yard box and does 10 regular merkins. Switch with partner who wheelbarrows back and does 10 regular merkins. Repeat but 10 wide grip merkins. Complete mucho chesto rounds. Only Flo screwed this up.

Circle up in middle for bear crawl ring of fire. One pax runs around outside of circle while pax bear crawl in circle. Occasional stops were called for various exercises. More crying from Flo about the turf hurting his hands. To be fair, there were white stripes which is apparently softer. Mosey back for a little Mary. Done.



  • Honored to lead. Great AO. Strong pax forming. Just needs coffee on site like the Hooch.
  • YHC learns something new everytime Charles Bronson posts. First, Laces is fast. If he played soccer for Russia, he would definitely be accused of doping. Second, burpees still suck.
  • According to YHC’s infallible Apple watch, YHC’s heart rate hit 191 beats per minute (right when Turbin challenged YHC’s pride at the end of Bronson). This is apparently high. According to the internets (the only thing more infallible than an Apple watch), that feeling of imminent death might have just been YHC’s heart about to explode. Just like that poor sucker in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Thankful YHC didn’t go out like that.
