YHC decided that today was no ordinary day. No, today, with 14 brothers present, required something a little more special. And so it began.


A five exercise warm-up set was enjoined by all, IC, and x15 then x10. SSH, Imperial Walkers, Sumo Squats, Cotton Pickers and Mountain Climbers.

A mosey around the bottom of the parking lot, out to the street and back up the street to the picnic tables.

One quick set, IC and x10, Dips and Incline Merkins and then we mosied to

The Thang:

The main entrance to the school where we paired off for some partner fun. 3 sets each, Partner Dips, Partner Merkins, x10 and each partner goes each time.

And then we mosied to the upper parking lot where YHC broke out “THE DECK OF DEATH”. That’s right sports fans, I bought it, and i used it.

The PAX circled up and took turns drawing two cards, with the 1st being the count, (most of the time) and the 2nd being the exercise. (What the hell is a Bulgarian Split Squat anyway and why are there SO many merkins?)

We had Merkins, Derkins, Incline Merkins, Werkins, Hand Release Merkins, Burpees, Big Boy Sit ups, High Slow Flutter, Calf Raises, Plank, Backwards running, Wojo, Slow Squats, Standing Lunges, Backwards Standing Lunges, and the list went on and on.

We survived the deck and took a little mosey back to front of the school for some PAX led Mary. Suds, Fireballs, GreenBean and Hatchet got to pull out exercises like Freddie Mercuries, American Hammers, Russian somethings and even some Kobe Bryants.

We wrapped it up at 6:14 and took a final mosey back to the main parking lot to close it out.


In honor of his upcoming VQ on Saturday at 0700, Suds took us out. Prayers for the passing of Leon’s Aunt Lucy and for the fartsackers that could not join.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Fireballs was wondering who the Yahoo is that created the D.O.D and put all the Merkins in it. YHC told him I just bought the damn deck.
