Tire Flipping Feast


68 and gloomful, though the sun did rise in the Far East. Slicnut was early, threatening to VERY Irish Goodbye. Woody showed up right at 5:30. Nature Boy rucked and then left for work. Wide Right is still on the IR but I emailed him today and assured him I was not stalking him, just checking on him. We missed Snowman, who is still recovering, also.

After a not so gentle nudge from the Nantan to watch the How to Count video, which YHC did over and over and over, How to Count was reviewed with the PAX and completed successfully throughout.


You’re here to push yourself, not hurt yourself, so chickity-check yourself before you wreck yourself.


SSH IC x 15
Imperial Walker IC x 15
Cotton Picker IC x 15
Merkins IC x 10
Fetch:  Rather than mosey to the football field, one PAX  throws a frisbee along the route in the direction of the football field. All PAX sprint frisbee to landing place. At each landing place one PAX chose an exercise. Among them were Freddie Mercuries (20 IC), almost-Wolverine Burpees, then Wolverine Burpees, WW1 Situps,  more Burpees, and maybe a few others…I lost track. Frisbee-throwing wasn’t really our strength, but it made for a new kinda mosey.
We finally arrived at the goal line where the tire flipping feast awaited us.


2 minute AMRAPS of the following:

Round 1: PAX flipping a tire (courtesy of O-Positive) with dealer’s choice exercise in between reps (bear crawls, imperial walkers, SSH, and Hillbillies were all in the mix…TCLAPS to Woody for leading the way on this)

Round 2:  20 IC Freddie Mercuries and Lt Dans (5)

Round 3: PAX flipping a tire…again….with dealer’s choice exercise in between reps

Round 4:  5 Aussie Burpees (check the F3 Exicon!) and 5 Merkins

Round 5: PAX flipping that tire…again and again….with dealer’s choice exercise in between reps

Round 6: 20 SSH and 10 prisoner squats

Round 7:  1 Burpee and then flip that tire with all kinds of dealer’s choice

Round 8: 5 Burpees and 5 Lt Dans

Round 9: Flip that tire with a side of dealer’s choice

Mosey back to the flag


Thunderstruck until 6:15 (Hold plank position, then 1 Merkin every time “Thunder” is heard….AC/DC was a strong finish)


Roots, Harry Carey, Slicnut (NO Irish Goodbye), Doppelganger, Zima (making everyone look better), Woody, Cheesesteak


Jeremiah 9:23-24 – Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”

YHC encouraged the PAX to prioritize their relationship with the Lord over the wisdom, might, and riches of this world. While Stuart Smalley famously coined the phrase, “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me” there is always someone smarter, stronger, and richer than you. Boasting in those things is futile. Knowing the Lord and boasting in what he delights is exceedingly valuable.


YHC is thankful for O-Positive, who met up Tuesday night to hand off the tire. Slicnut informed me during our beatdown there are tires on site at the Houston HS football field that are even heavier, so we will use those next time around.

Maybe because it was hump day, maybe it was because Billy Blanks was noticeably absent (as was Captain Obvious), maybe it was the plethora of tire flips executed by the PAX, but there was no noticeable mumble chatter. YHC tried to instigate some chatter but there was little response…even from Zima, who we suspect is 345’ing this week. Go get ’em Zima!



Nothing mentioned so we locked shields.
