Not a lot of holidays in June to choose from for a themed BD, so YHC decided on Father's Day.  Typical setup with lights, tomato cages, HD buckets, and set to theme music.


PAX mosied to the parking lot by the Rec center. SSH - 10 Hill Billys - 10 Windmills - 10 Weed Pickers - 10 Arm circles - 10 forward and reverse

The Thang:

Theme was divided into 6 qualities of good fathers (and men) with an exercise and music set to each theme.  The primary tool for exercises was 5 gallon HD buckets.  PAX were instructed to grab a bucket from the pile. Be Supportive Music = Lean on Me (Club Nouveau) PAX alternated left and right plank positions on their bucket called out by the Q.  Passing cars thought we were strange guys waving as they passed by. Be Patient Music = Patience (Guns N Roses) Bucket squats with Q calling out 5 second hold on each word of Patience by Axel. Be an Encourager Music = I'll be there for you (BonJovi) PAX partnered up and mosied to the lake.  Partner A ran in one direction and Partner B ran in opposite direction around the lake.  When partners came together, they did 10 Brokins, then reversed direction. Show Endurance / Grit Music = Under Pressure (Queen / David Bowie) PAX were provided with lids for their buckets and instructed to fill their buckets with pond scum water from the lake (lots of mumble chatter).  PAX then performed the following exercises (10 each) then rinse and repeat.
Curls Overhead Press Chest Press Rows Romanian Deadlift
Listen Music = Listen to the Music (Doobie Brothers) PAX did lunge-twist with buckets around the parking lot.  PAX changed direction each time they heard "Listen" in the song. Have Fun Music = Fun Fun Fun(Beach Boys) PAX did 11's across the parking lot.  Begin with SSH, then karyoke run to end of parking lot, then Merkins. PAX emptied buckets of smelly pond water and headed back to the flag.


Sicem asked for prayers for safe travel to baseball tournament in Florida.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Hope the 6 Father qualities resonated with some PAX today.
