1st Annual Arrears PT Test

From the creator of the Arrears 500® and the Mosey Suicide®


Last time YHC attended a Depot bootcamp we did the dreaded PT test. YHC thought its past time the PT test got bedazzled

Start time: 6:31AM

YHC rolls into the AO like Depot greats Pothole (present, in spirit) and JD (IR – Rib) from days of yore


Shout out to UTP PAX Moose for covering until I arrived.


Two and a half (2.5) mile timed run. Two miles isn’t long enough and why wait until the end? LOTS of good complaining

Several minutes later, Our very own, Joanna, emerges victorious earning himself a spot on the coveted Depot Ville to Ville team. Seriously, sign him up.

Once finished head to the playground for the pull up challenge. YHC was reminded  of the great 2019 battle of Depot v. Ballentine Park. Reroute to the pull up bars. PT Test: do as many pull ups as you can, all the way up all the way down (Phole is watching). A partner to hold legs is acceptable.

The results bring us to our first FACE OFF


Joanna vs Sir Topham Hatt

Results: Joanna, again. Joanna reminds everyone of his super cool home gym that includes a state-of-the-art pull up bar system. THIS GUY IS ON FUEGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
