Still Hopes

A long lost soul returned to the gloom this morning, in all his glory. Whether that was me or Stagecoach is up for debate.

YHC tried for a kinder, gentler Q as a prelude to a more user-friendly option for the old, the injured, the huddled masses yearning to breath free downwind of Moose. Several PAX didn’t receive the memo to bring something akin to a ruck and had to carry a block. Something about sorting through the 547 messages a day in the Always Dank, Occasionally Exercises Twitter Chat. The Thang proceeded thusly.



Roommate is not a professional, was very cold and terribly excited to return to the bosom of the tribe. Or really any bosom for that matter.


  • Desultory T-claps and TTT x 10 in cadence

Assemble on the track

Quite simple, using a weighted object, preferably a ruck, commence:

  • 10 squats
  • 10 overhead presses
  • 10 curls

Ruck to the pull-up bars and perform:

  • 10 pull-ups
  • 10 merkins
  • 10 chest presses

Return to the start, rinse and repeat, AMRAP, or just ramble along in a pack until you get there.

  • Darla said, “to hell with this, I’m just gonna run around a while.”

Having completed a few rounds, the PAX returned to the parking lot for a little Mary, including one strenuous rep of Hello Dolly’s.


Editor’s Note: This workout was conducted outdoors, among manly men, with nary a basketball or a fern in sight. Official audit pending.


  • Cottonmouth is March 12, with Lumbergh offering complimentary registration to all takers


Good to be back in the bootcamp gloom. YHC has enjoyed the warmth of the fart sack for far too long while only contributing snark to the aforementioned Twitter chat. Come back next month for a 57th Birthday Bash and Wordle Tutorial.
