What wind chill?

AO: The Grindstone

When: 02/01/2021

QIC: False Start

PAX (13): Inseam, McDuff, Crab Cake, Hushpuppy, Sculley, Snowman, VonTrappe, PitStop, Swiper, Olaf, Walkie Talkie, Zohan, False Start


37 degrees, but with a windchill of 28. No matter, we won’t feel that after a few minutes.


Mosey through the Big A Parking lot, around the baseball fields and to the entrance for some classic Warm-O-Rama:

  • SSH
  • Mountain-man poopers
  • Windmill
  • Hillbillies

Mosey to the football field, let’s get warm!

The Thang:

The Thang #1

We’re going to have a Quarter-pounder to get the PAX warm.  Start on the goal line and complete the following:

  • Run to the 25 yard line & complete 25 merkins – Bernie Sanders back to the goal line
  • Run to the 50 yard line & complete 50 squats – Bernie Sanders back to the goal line (you get the picture)
  • Run to eh 75 yar..er, opposite 25 yard line & complete 75 mountain climbers – Bernie back
  • Run to the opposite goal line & complete 100 SSH – Bernie back

Windchill now gone, let’s lift some coupons.

The Thang #2

Meet on the 50, complete 37 reps (it was 37 this morning) of each exercise at each corner of the field after a 5-manmaker deposit at the 50 before heading to another corner:

  • Curls
  • Rows
  • Goblet Squats
  • LBCs

We had time, so let’s go on to #3!

The Thang #3

We had coupons, might as well keep throwing them around.  Meet on the goal line and complete the following:

  • 10 Lat pullovers + 10 Overhead presses, then Cusack / Riflecarry to the 20 yard line
  • 15 Lat pullovers + 15 Overhead presses, then Cusack / Riflecarry to the 30 yard line (got the pattern now?)
  • Same to 40 yard line
  • Same to 50 yard line

Mosey back to the flag for some Mary:

  • Buzzsaw
  • Flutter Kick
  • LBCs
  • T-Bombs



Prayers for Sculley’s buddy recovering from a stroke


Naked-Man Moleskin:

It’s great to see so many men come out on a chilly Monday morning to set your month off right.  Remember that we ‘Get to,’ rather than ‘Have to.’ (thanks for the tough reminder Hushpuppy!).  This hits hard every time I hear it, so it’s good to be continually reminded to help me keep perspective.

Until next time!
