When: 02/19/2020


PAX (23): Tweaker, Switch, Cutie, Rooney, Raider, Juul, Crablegs, Turbine, Virginia Slim, Squeak, Backside, Foley, Bear, Swamp Donkey, Rusty, Sellout, Beiber, Squeegee, Wide-Right, White Claw, Tubbs, Sprocket, AFLAC


YHC has been on a low-mosey regimen ever since he ran into the booby-trap that Swamp Donkey set for him at Bandit last week, so it was time to fire-up the BB time-machine to revive a BD from the pre-RESPECT days when Q had a busted wheel.  However, unlike the good old days when Virginia Slim was a regular attendee, our keeper of cinders was using RESPECT (and a sore back) as an excuse for what seemed an eternity of fart-sacking.  It took a good bit of EH’ing (and the promise of no-mosey BD) to convince the man to load up the cinder and rally.


YHC directed PAX to grab a coupon and cusack towards the playground while disclaimers were given.  Some in-cadence arm curls for the last stretch, following by a brief set of warm-up exercises:

  • Hillbillys
  • Weed-Pickers

The Thang:

Q instructed PAX to count-off by 2’s to split the PAX into two separate groups.  Starting at the playground, one group would farmer-carry 2 coupons to COT and back as a team.  As soon as a team-member had to drop coupons for a rest, everyone in the group would perform 20 overhead press w/coupon.  This process would repeat until the group returned back to the playground.

The other group would perform the following rotation of exercises while waiting for the farmer-carry group to return:

  • 10 Pull-Ups
  • 20 Derkins
  • 30 Squats
  • (rinse/repeat)

Some random observations:

  • It did not go unnoticed that it took 3 FULL SONGS for first farmer-carry group to return to the playground.
  • Coupons of a cinder variety appear to gain weight when left out in 3+ inches of rain overnight.  I suspect they were pushing 40+ lbs today.
  • Farmer-carrying style was varied and interesting.  Some of us have battle scars to prove it.
  • An infant has more grip-strength for pull-ups than PAX after a round of farmer carries.
  • Tubbs is smarter than he looks.
  • Virginia Slim started with the “bronkettes”, but didn’t end with them.  Discuss amongst yourselves.
  • Foley is surprisingly competitive during farmer carries.  Not sure what that means but it was noted.

With T-5 on the clock, Q called time and directed all PAX to cusack back to the flag.  No time for Mary today.


  • Sad to hear that Fred the Marine passed away, but heaven’s surely safer now.
  • Prayers for Tweaker’s father.
  • Prayers for friends of PAX suffering from cancer and other ailments.

AFLAC out.
