Ramming Stick, or Whipping Ram?

  • When: 9/23/17
  • QIC: Patti Mayo
  • The PAX: Phlem, Doughboy, Beaker, Cousin Eddie, Tooth Fairy, Flamer

Seven brave PAX came out to the stick this morning for a weekend starting beat down.  YHC showed up right at 6:13 since someone who will remain nameless decided to switch the time to 6:15.  Unlike most of you guys who have a nice little 5 minute ride to most of these AO’s YHC has at least a 15-20 minute drive to get to ALL OF THEM!!  But I digress and here’s how it went.

Warm up- SSH, ATT, Humpys, TWSS.

After a quick warm up we took off toward the church, which I don’t know the name of, but if you’ve ever posted, you know the one i’m talking about.  Its the church with the pull up bars where Sooner made us do all of those crazy pull ups a couple weeks ago.  Once we made a lap around the church, We stopped in the big parking lot for some spokes.  YHC had brought cones with him for the run because as previously stated, I live in Hildebran.  After setting cones up with four at the corners and on in the middle, we did an upper body spoke consisting of Merkins, Diamond Merkins, Wide Merkins and HR Merkins.  15 of each exercise with 5 burpees in the middle every time.  After we were done, we made a right out of the church and headed up the hill to the little “gated” neighborhood on the left.  After we made it into the neighborhood we did a round of Asheville Abs, If you don’t know what they are, post and find out.  Or ask someone who’s done them, and with tears in their eyes, they’ll tell you.

After Asheville Abs, we headed through the hood, to the gate and out the other side.  Cut to the bridge for Tricep dips, Incline Merkins, Tricep Dips, and Decline Merkins.  Head up the hill of death that really doesn’t look that bad until you get about 3/4 of the way up and you feel like you’re going to die….hill of death.  Once we got back to the parking lot, we partnered up and did some lifting and moving.  Logs, Logs with chains, 45pd plate, and a big friggin tire.  One Partner carries to set cone, runs to end of parking lot, comes back, carries item (or flips) back to partner who has been doing Lbc’s anxiously awaiting their turn, and flapjack.  This went on for 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

Mosey back to the church for another round of spokes, same exercises and only 10 reps each this time.  Took right out of church again, under much protest and what may have almost been another flaming cropdust situation, went to bottom of hill for another round of Asheville Abs, which were also greatly protested.  Back to the school, going the way we came as to avoid total mutiny, and that was time.

COT- Talked about gleaning and how the lord wants us to help those that are less fortunate, but how much do we really on a daily basis.

Good Stuff-

-Dumbass was the word of the day today and there was one point where it was suggested that we end every sentence with said word…DUMBASS!! And it started early too, I mean like as we were leaving the school for the first time, very aggressive for that early in the morning.

-Someone who will remain nameless opted for squats instead of burpees during the spokes the second time around…..you know who you are….Dumbass!! Oops sorry, I didn’t mean it, must still be trying to shake off all the hostility from this morning. But if I remember correctly, Didn’t said person start the dumbass epidemic this morning? Anyways….

-We learned during the second round of Asheville Abs, After Cuz was talking about YHC’s mom out of anger i’m sure, (Dorothy Mantooth is a SAINT!!!) that apparantly it’s “gay” to look another PAX in the eye while doing abs, but its perfectly acceptable to look at his junk? Interesting!!

  • Apparently we totaled around 4.5 miles in total this morning, hence the title!
  • This is the most i’ve ever typed or said dumbass in a 12 hour period!
  • I’m not sure why this thing has started bullet points instead of the lines I was doing, its my wife’s computer and it confuses me.

As always gentlemen it was a pleasure…..

Since I have a pulled hamstring (and can’t run or workout) I was out walking that lovely morning when I caught wind of you DUMBASSES coming around the corner and heading to New Hope Baptist Church – where my son built those pull up bars for part of his Boy Scout Eagle Project for you DAs to use on Saturday mornings. And I am a dumbass for typing this – cause ain’t nobody gonna even see it.
CD, the DA
