Bushwood is a good change of pace, a good place to use muscles you don’t normally use by utilizing the pool, with a light-ish land based portion of the BD. As this was YHC’s Bushwood VQ, took the opportunity to challenge that notion and get the sweat pumps going early.

With a large turnout AND 2 FNG’s, full disclaimer was given John “Mighty Mouth” Makita style, and off we went.


10 of each of the following:



Moroccan nightclubs


Bernie Sanders mosey quarter mile out and back.


The Thang:

Land attack:

4 Corners up/down ladder, Bernie Sanders to each successive corner, in reps of 5/10/etc. up to 25, then back down by 5, doing all 3 of the following exercises at each corner:

4 count bodybuilders,  crunchy frogs, jump squats

Amphibious attack

1. Single down and back in the pool, your own stroke

2. BLIMPS (Burpees, lunges, etc.), with a twist: Between each exercise, swim across the pool, do the next exercise. After squats, do one last swim across

3. 7’s with muscle ups/dips, doing a swim across the pool between exercises


Continued prayers for employment for YHC and peace in Eastern Europe.


Naked-Man Moleskin:

With 2 FNG’s and a rather large crowd of returning HIMs, YHC was delighted to be a catalyst for  accelerating fitness. It was a great morning and an even better group to lead today. Such a privilege……
