Day 4 of Ha-ha week and with some serious help from Windjammer clown cars there was a crowd of 30 PAX ITG at the Norseman this morning.

With a threat of rain last night YHC planned a partial pavilion workout but really nothing more than mist and 44 degrees greeted the masses this morning.

Disclaimer and off we go.


Mosey to the big lot for

  • 62 SSH in cadence
  • Weed Pickers
  • Windmills
  • Imperial Walkers

Mosey back to the flag.

The Thang:

Pair off and each pair grabs a Girlfriend along with a collection of other fun items:

  • a section of railroad track
  • 62 lb sandbag
  • 3 – 5 gallon buckets with an unknown quantity of girlfriend dust inside

Don’t be Blue Because You Are 62

Mosey to the back pavilion where lights were set up and a special board was waiting.

Each PAX does 62 reps of each exercise while their partner runs a loop up to and through the “flag pavilion”. Loop around to the left and back to swap with your partner. After each set of 3 exercises plank for the 6.

The Exercises:

62 Sumo Squats

62 Bottom half Curls

62 Bent Over Rows

62 Overhead press

62 Step Ups

We got to the last set of curls when time expired and we returned the girlfriends to their home.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

I am blessed to be a part of this group. More than exercise, this group supports each other in life.

Thought for the day:

We all shared the “burden” of a sandbag, buckets and railroad track this morning. None of us could have done the workout carrying the load by ourselves.  We shared the burden.

Likewise, we need to share our burdens with each other.  Humans are pack animals. We are meant to live in groups, not a lone wolf! Yet our daily routine seems to encourage the I don’t need help, I’ll handle it my self attitude.  We need each other! Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for help and to share your burden with your battle buddy.
