Girls, Girls, Girls

We hear it all the time in society, mostly as kids… he throws like a girl, he runs like a girl, he does push-ups like a girl.  Well this morning, that’s exactly what 8 non-camping Pax did.  They exercised like girls.  And it was horrible.  Here’s how it played out…

The Gloom

I was sweating while giving the disclaimer.  It was humid.

The Thang

After a moist disclaimer and an FNG check (we need more FNG’s), we took a mosey down to the Cheese Grater and circled-up…


  • OHACs x 15 IC
  • Slow Mericans x 5 OYO
  • TTT x 15 IC
  • Slow Mericans x 4 OYO
  • IWs x 15 IC
  • Slow Mericans x 3 OYO
  • Slow Squats x 15 IC (3 count down, rep count up)
  • Slow Mericans x 2 OYO
  • LBCs x 15 IC
  • Slow Merican x 1 OYO

Well, it’s Saturday and YHC is Qing, so that can only mean one thing…head to the pull-up bars to meet the girls…


  • Run 400 meters (down to Cheese Grater then towards Soccer Field, hang a left, head for cone in 12th parking space, and return)
  • 21 Lunges (alternating legs)
  • 15 Pull-ups (or chin-ups if needed)
  • 9 Burpees
  • Rinse & Repeat for 4 total rounds
  • Once finished, AMRAP 5 Mericans / 15 SSHs while waiting on the six

Pax then grabbed a block from the upper block pile and congregated near the playset area…


  • Run 200 meters (to end of Cheese Grater)
  • 15 Overhead Block Squats
  • Rinse & Repeat for 5 total rounds
  • Once finished, AMRAP 5 Mericans / 15 SSHs while waiting on the six

Put the blocks away and mosey to centerfield of the adjacent baseball field…


  • Imaginary Jump Ropes (pretend you have a rope and go through the motions)
  • BBSU’s
  • 50-40-30-20-10 rep rounds (switched to Jump Ropes/Mericans for 20 & 10 rep sets)

After getting our butts kicked by those ladies, we didn’t have time to hang out with Mary.  All you got back to the ShovelFlag.


Announcements / Prayers / Praise

  • Solar Run 8/20 at Saluda Shoals – see Howler for details.
  • 8/26 Workout will be at Melvin Park, NOT SpeedTrap.  See Saw with the Q.
  • Praise for Beaker’s neighbor.  Had double lung transplant and THEN back surgery.  Healing very well.
  • Keep Mater, and Stirrups in your prayers, and be sure and reach out to Elvis and check on his M.


Celebrate with Your Kids! – Rick Warren

YHC tweeted this one out the other day after forwarding it to the M for us both to reflect on.  Enjoy the time with your 2.0’s…they grow up way too fast.  Link here.
