After a bout with Covid and a bum ankle, YHC was ready to get back in the saddle for a Q at one of his favorite AO’s. That stated, rucks and blocks may not be the best way to come back on the scene, but as my friend Feather’s put it – If you can’t Q it, don’t do it, so as a penance for the last time I Q’d at Meathouse, the ruck was strapped snugly on and off we went with a rolling quick preamble (no FNG’s) and a farmer’s carry of our coupons to the back parking lot.

Mother Nature appeared to cooperate initially, ensuring that several HIMs carrying coupons in the air wouldn’t be zapped, so we proceeded with urgency…….


10x of each of the following:




Moroccan Nightclubs

Covids (HA!)/Michael Phelps(s)

The Thang:

  1. BOMBS did in a 4 corners manner, with an increasing rep scheme of 5-10-15-20-25 then reversing rep count to in a decreasing manner, one exercise each corner, for the following: 4 count Block Bodybuilders, Overhead Presses, Mercans, Bent Block Rows, Block Squats. Travel corner to corner with an overhead Zamperini carry of the blocks
  2. Carry coupons to the ramp. 11’s (Good mornings /  kettlebell swings); start at the bottom with 10 good mornings,  with farmer’s to the mid-ramp, 1 kettle bell swing, farmer’s carry to the top, conduct 9 good morning, carry to the mid ramp, 2 kettle bell swings, and continue to until all complete. Calf raise for the 6
  3. Farmer’s carry to the flag. Shortened version of Dry Humps (1 Carolina Dry Docks to 2 monkey humpers), done though 5 CDD’s the 10 MH’s.

  1. 2nd F event on 7/21 at IceBox in Peachtree Corners, 6 PM (great way to deal with soreness and inflammation)
  2. 2nd/3rd F even on 7/22 – Blood Drive (Dipstick and Site Q’s), see Slack for details
  3. Hoochies are running the Breakfast with a Beatdown on Saturday, 7/23 at NLRB. BD starts at 6, prerun at 5:30, need folks to cook, serve, clean, and help with the BD
  4. The Good Lord finally spake saying, “ENOUGH! I SHALL RELEASE MY FURY UPON THE FORUM, FLEE!” And the clouds and lightning danced upon the firmament, hence we prayed for peace for our brothers and their families, our country, a broken world, and all prayers said and unsaid…..

Naked-Man Moleskin:

What a great morning to get back to it. YHC is so thankful that he was able to get back into the swing of things. Thanks for the hard work and for the push, men!
