17 PAX shook off the soreness from yesterday’s LFQ (Leprechaun Fitness Quiz) to enjoy a leisurely workout together at #thegeneral.
YHC is not a professional. This is a free, voluntary workout. Push yourself, don’t hurt yourself, and modify or stop as needed.
75 Degrees, 72% humidity. Not bad by recent standards.
Circle the flag and indulge in a variety of top-shelf, premium jacks diluted with a few drops of cheap mumble chatter.
- Side Straddle Hops x 20 IC
- Straight-arm Jacks x 20 IC
- Seal Jacks x 20 IC
- Squat Jacks x 15 IC
- Merkin Jacks x 15 IC (whatever the opposite of “crowd-favorite” is, apply that term here)
- Grassgrabber x 10 IC
- Abe Vigoda x 10 IC
- OYO stretching x 30 count
Mosey to the Western Front where The General Marquee would serve as a clock. (RIP to YHC’s watch, resting in perpetuity at the bottom of Lake Conroe).
Definition: Large BLIMPS.
Aside: YHC’s favorite restaurant growing up was a place called Macadoo’s. This humble casual-dining establishment featured a sandwich called the Hindenburg, which was one of those large party-style sandwiches that took up the whole length of the table and was served on this wooden thing that looked like a longer cricket bat.
On Tuesdays the promotion was Half-Price Hindenburg Night, and this presented an opportunity for exceptionally-masculine individuals (e.g. young YHC) to demonstrate their dominance by consuming an entire sandwich designed for 4 people, with the added benefit of a reasonable price. The feeling of exhilaration and success at the end of a Hindenburg meal represented no less than the pinnacle of human experience and emotion. Through the highs and lows of adulthood, nothing has come close to replacing that sensation.
This morning’s workout was intended to bring that glory back and share it with my Brothers of the Gloom (& Early Post-Sunrise) – to perhaps, for a fleeting moment, raise the PAX’s sense of accomplishment to new heights that were previously unimaginable, leading to an elevated sense of self-worth, enlightenment, and inner-peace.
As it turned out, most PAX would agree that eating a large sandwich would have been a much better alternative.

This series of events resulted in the PAX appearing to be appropriately exercised.
Count-O-Rama and Name-O-Rama
17 PAX no FNGs.
Ball of Man
Circle of Trust, Ball of Man and Thoughts and Prayers
TAPs for Britney’s mom, Fire-&-Ice’s granddaughter, and Cheech’s family.
Duggar reminded us to think about our legacy – how many lives will we touch/improve? We should all should want to be remembered for our impact on others, just like Cheech is being remembered now.
Look at the F3Nation website for opportunity to buy Cheech-themed workout shirts (no sleeves, of course) to benefit his family.
TClaps to Whiskey for taking us out – remember the Priest and the Monk.
Thank you for the opportunity to lead this morning.
