A Stroll with #TheGirlfriends at The Yard

AO: The Yard

When: 06/29/2019

QIC: Ha-ha

PAX (11): Gilligan, FNG Shart, Squeeky, Bobby Dodd, Nubs, Deuces, Nutcraker, Clapper, Bulldog, Top Hat, Ha-ha


YHC has been itching to get to Lawrenceville to The Yard but other obligations kept me away until now! #TheGirlfriends came along, too!


  • 70
  • “lower” humidity that the last week


0700 rolled around and 11 PAX had gathered for some work including FNG Shart and 2 PAX from Alpharetta.

We mosied around to the stage circled and performed:

  • SSH
  • Weed Pickers
  • Imperial Walkers

We mosied back up to the parking.

The Thang:

YHC had heard that the Yard men aren’t fond of running. So I promised to keep the runs short. And they were. There just happened to be a lot of them!

A Musical Dora was on tap for this morning. Like a regular Dora, the PAX pair up and work on an exercise together but instead of working to a count, we worked for the duration of a song (thus the musical part!). Partner 1 runs the loop from the tables, around through the stage and back around to the tables while your partner performs the song prescribed for that song.

The exercises went like this:

Life in the Fast Lane 04:46 Kettlebell Swing
Reelin In The Years 04:37 Squat Press
Peace of Mind 05:03 Hammer Curls
Walk This Way 03:31 Squat w/ bag
Another One Bites The Dust 03:35 Skull Crusher
Black Magic Woman 03:15 Sumo Deadlift
Give it Away 04:42 Overhead Press
La Grange 03:50 Reverse Lunge and Press
Whole Lotta Love 05:39 Bent Over Row
Free Bird 09:18 Merkins

The Yard men attacked the workout without complaints and got the work done! 9 minutes of merkins are ALWAYS a crowd pleaser!

After Free Bird faded away we returned The Girls to the truck and finished up with:


  • LBC
  • Dieing Cockroach
  • Flutter Kicks
  • Plank for 1 minute



We welcomed Shart from Loganville (ask him for an explanation of that name) and gave thanks for the wonderful country we live in and the men and women who died for her.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

These guys are cranking out the FNGs over in Lawrenceville! Great things are happening in Gwinnett! It was a pleasure to come over and be with you this morning. Let me know if I can do anything else for you!
