AO: Grindstone

When: 11/05/2018

QIC: Whiz

PAX (): Swiper, Scully, McDuff, Badger, Whiz

The Grindstone has now been open for a month and YHC thought it a good time to christen a namesake routine that embodies the spirit of the AO.


/grind/ verb

  • sharpen, smooth, or produce (something) by crushing or friction.

/grind/ noun

  • hard, dull work.

After consulting the exicon for inspiration, YHC was ready to bring the pain.  5 PAX answered the call this morning to suffer through and take a few steps up the mountain.

Warmup – usual assortment of SSH, windmill, weed pickers


Mosey up to the park entrance to start the G.R.I.N.D.  Begin at the first light pole, duck walk to the next and continue until finished.

Rd. 1 – 10 Groiners, 20 Ranger merkins, 30 Imperial walkers, 40 Newton’s cradles, 50 Diamond merkins.

Rd. 2 (head back up to the starting pole) – 50 Gorilla humpers, 40 Reverse LBC, 30 Imperial squat walkers, 20 Never cross dolly, 10 Double merkin burpees

Rd. 3 (GRINDicides) – suicide run to each light pole and back for the entire length of the parking lot performing 10 Bonnie Blairs at each pole along the way for a total of 60.

Mosey back to the flag for 1 MoM – Flutter Kicks


Prayers for YHC’s long drive and close quarters with my dad and helping him move this week.  Also, prayers of peace and calming for McDuff.
