Lexington – The Hollow

YHC: “Stacy Shealy, 50, Kenwood”. PAX : “RESPECT”. Now that feels a little different!

YHC had my Respect Q today.  There was a good crowd (24 total) with a couple guys that made a little extra effort to show (appreciate that).  The Hollow mumble chatter was almost as thick as the air.  As with most Qs, I tried to break the norm by coming up with some different routines.  …

A Roll of the Dice

Dearest Martha, As I write to you on this, the anniversary of my birth, I must admit that I have had a bittersweet birthday.  Without a doubt, the men have certainly helped me celebrate this momentous occasion by continuously posting rather arousing photographs of ***REDACTED*** all over the barracks.  These guys certainly know how to …

We didn’t run

YHC is nursing a bad wheel thanks to a rock on the sidewalk at Monday’s Stride. Running, proven once again, is bad for you. So, the original plan was scratched in favor of a non-running workout that is detailed below to the best of YHC’s recollection. Thanks to the fellas at The Hollow for always …

Brick and move

YHC rolled into the Hollow this morning with 16 eager Pax waiting. It is amazing how early all these Pax arrive to hang out prior to a beatdown. There were so many Pax (9) lit up for Stride Lite that it look like Christmas presented by Nox Gear. As Mercy Rule pointed out about halfway through …

Brocks

YHC loves the Hollow because there are bricks and blocks. While all AOs have blocks, not all AOs have bricks, but YHC loves them. It is a really nice transition point as the workout goes along to be able to shift the weight down. Anyway, YHC loves the Hollow, and the Pax always bring their …

Friendly Fire

Dearest Martha, You have been extremely forthright in demanding my honesty and have all but threatened physical harm if I dare to hold anything back, so, while it kills me to add one bit of worry to your sweet little heart, I will honor your request and tell you about my day—the day that was …

Omaha, Omaha….

Several years ago, Peyton Manning made the phrase, “Omaha, Omaha” famous. For those that follow football, you know it was something you heard when he was calling an audible at the line of scrimmage (or maybe he wasn’t). Thus was the case this morning. As the 6:00 hour rolled around, the Q wasn’t there, so …

A “Super” Workout

19 men posted this morning for what was to be another fun morning at The Hollow.  We had a good showing with 11 for Stridelite and 1 for Rucklite.  For some, the 45 minute bootcamp just isn’t enough.  YHC has to admit, not a lot of creativity went into this morning’s workout, but hope it brought …

[Tennis] Balls of Fury

Back in action at The Hollow. YHC thinks this is quickly becoming his favorite place to Q. The fellowship and mumblechatter are always on point, and the PAX (for the most part) follow complex instruction pretty well. Strong work today, and good, clean’ish competition men! #TClaps to Cooter for helping YHC out with cleaning up …

BULLDOG IN A HOLLOW

It had been too long since YHC had visited The Hollow.  So, when the call came from AOQ Scotch, YHC jumped at the opportunity.  Now, legend has it that these Hollow boys have been putting up great attendance numbers and are absolute beasts.  So, figured it was super important YHC bring something a little different …
