Against medical advice, 9 PAX including 2 FNGs washed down a burpee/BLIMPS open-faced sandwich with 248 gallons of sweat on a steamy morning at #theyard.
YHC is not a professional. This is a voluntary workout. Push yourself, but don’t hurt yourself and modify if necessary. Hydrate as needed.
83 Degrees, 91% humidity. Basically – disgusting. YHC questioning the decision to move away from the Pacific coast.
Gather in the Western parking lot due to unexpected closure of the Toyota Center and surrounding environs. Disruption taken in stride – literally – as we started with a ~1 mile Mosey through the empty streets of Bellaire before heading to the town square.

- Seal Jacks x 20 IC
- Grassgrabbers x 10 IC

Crowd favorite – the Burpee Broad Jump across BTS. Repeat x 2 with recovery jogs and then x 1 more with bear-crawls on the finish.
New exercise: The Jay-Z. Hold plank position, brush shoulders off.
Jay-Z Left x 10 IC
Jay-Z Right x 10 IC
Time for BLIMPS, which felt more like Hindenbergs in the heat/humidity. At this point the Accuweather Real Feel heat index suggested that working out on the surface of the sun would have been a refreshing alternative.
Each BLIMPS exercise was “recovered” by a jog/sprint combo around BTS.

Mosey back to the parking lot and watch the steam rise from the PAX.
Count-O-Rama and Name-O-Rama
9 PAX including FNGs Daredevil and Magnus. Welcome!

Circle of Trust, Ball of Man and Thoughts and Prayers
YHC told a long, convoluted, minimally-interesting story about a dog movie and an alcoholic abusive dad and somehow intended for this to serve as encouragement to post for workouts and EH new guys. Story effectiveness rating = D minus. At least it wasn’t an F.
#Tclaps to Whiskey for taking us out and to Duggar for helping FNGs navigate as always.
As the heat rises don’t forget to hydrate pre- and post-workout!
