Old Man Winter showed up for Thanksgiving themed BD

AO: Firehouse

When: 11/17/2022

QIC: Seaman

PAX (7): Ace Ventura, Florida Man, LifeLock VPN, Lightweight, Seaman, Sirmixalot, Suarez


It was a very brisk morning, the “real feel” said it was 25 degrees, and I was very pleased by the turnout to support YHC on his second Q, and the triumphant return of Florida Man!

So what had happened was, YHC turned 51 on Sunday, so the brilliant plan was to do 17 reps of each exercise for 3 rounds to give the PAX 51 reps of getting stronger while doing exercises that spell out Happy Thanksgiving.  It was a lofty goal, and we were able to complete one full round and made it to Happy Thanks G.


Disclaimer and a slow mosey to the spot where we do our stretches:

Sun Gods, Hillbillies, Hurdlers, mosey back to the upper parking lot.

The Thang:

The Thang: 17 reps of each, up to 3 rounds, which would give 51 reps per exercise.  I had to use some deep cuts from the Exicon in order get all the letters needed.

H – Hatching Butterfly

A – Alternating Shoulder Taps (Alpha Count)

P – Prayer Squat (squats while holding hands in front like you are praying)

P – Pretzel Crunch

Y – Yves Poll (AKA Bernie Sanders, but I needed a Y to keep the theme)

T -Turkish GetUp

H – Heels to Heaven

A – Alternating Side Squats

N – Nolan Ryan (One of the best hockey fights I have seen happened at a baseball game)

K – Knee Taps

S – Side shuffles

I – Imperial Squat Walker (add a squat)

V – V-ups

G -Groiners (thank you to Sir Mix-A-Lot for showing us the correct exercise, I was thinking about Peter Parkers)



Santa Ruck 12/10, you may contribute even if you cannot be at the event.

We prayed for some friends, coworkers, and fellow parishioners going through various struggles, as well as the “prayers, spoken and unspoken”, so nothing slips through the cracks.


Naked-Man Moleskin:

Big Thank you to the PAX who helped me by keeping count because I was losing my voice during the BD.  I have been fighting a sore throat and apparently losing.
