A far younger crowd, emerged from the safety of the fart sack this AM and made their way to Shadow @ DNC to join YHC for a different flavor than we have had lately.

Ironically, the 20s, 30s  and even the 40s were all well represented. Many of our “elder” regulars chose to enjoy the holiday elsewhere. After a very brief mosey up the hill to the Austin parking lot, we got into it.


The air was just a little cooler, so YHC opted for a slightly longer Saturday warm-o-rama: (all IC and all x12 – two rounds)

  • Imperial Walkers
  • SSH
  • Squats (1st set low and slow / 2nd set Sumo)
  • Windmills
  • Mountain Climbers into Plank Hold
  • Large Arm Circles (Set 1 Forward / Set 2 Reverse)

The Thang:

Time to get it into it. Starting at the short wall above the playground:

  • 10 decline merkins with feet on the wall
  • run to the front gate
  • 20 squats (PAX choice)
  • run to and through the mid gate to the back gate
  • 30 low dollys
  • run back to the wall

(rinse and repeat for 4 or 5 rounds (for the studs))

Tabatas 1 and 2 –

  • 5 Rounds (20 seconds on / 10 seconds off)
  • Set 1 – Mason Twists
  • Set 2 – Low Flutter

Mosey to and thru front gate to the middle of the DNC hill for alternating single leg lunges (5 to each side) and then 5 inch worms all the way up to the crest of the hill

Next set (all IC and all X10 – 3 rounds)

  • Curb Dips
  • Rocky Balboa’s
  • Floyd Mayweathers (incline style)

Mosey back to the end of the Austin parking lot.

Tabatas 3 and 4 –

  • 5 Rounds (20 seconds on / 10 seconds off)
  • Set 3 – HRM (Hand Release Merkins)
  • Set 4 – Squats

A few minutes left, so we got in some Mary (all IC and all X10) after we got through the  BIG BLOCK ALPHABET.

  • Leon’s Box-Cutters
  • Obliques (Left and Right)
  • Rosalita

Q called time.


After we figured out the FNG’s name – FKA known as Guard Dawg’s teammate and friend, now Sparky.

Fireballs took us out.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Coffeeteria was lively. The old guys that normally try and encroach were absent, and Team Mom had plenty of paper plate trophies to pass out  and even banked a few for weeks to come.

Our Holiday beatdown, Q’d by Team Mom will start 1 hour later, at 7 AM at PMS and is promised to be a little more fun that we typically have. (not that is not always fun) SYITG.
