It was a very light day at Urban Jungle today – only 29 PAX showed up. We should probably close it down due to lack of interest… Last time YHC was at the helm we had 48. 🙂 Anyway, after a brief disclaimer and no FNGs, we headed off for a leisurely tour of the NH shopping center with a few exercises thrown in. YHC heard a little mumblechatter, “hey so are we not gonna warm up?” Simma.

insane traffic

At this point, the PAX started to notice an inordinate amount of traffic in the shopping center. Pretty wack for the early hour. I mean, Chick Fil A hadn’t even really gotten it going yet. We definitely had to stay on our toes to dodge all the cars, trucks, airplanes, submarines, roller skates, etc. #wtf…

Warm Up

  • Azul’s whacky yoga-like stretch thing (Q-led) #mumblechatter
  • SSH x 20
  • Imperial Walkers x 20
  • Good Morning x 20
  • Mountain Climbers x 20

The Thang

Run over to the bottom of the hill behind Target. Partner up, size/speed unimportant.

P1 run to top of the hill, perform x 10 of an exercise, P2 performs AMRAP of same exercise, then flapjack. Plank when finished. The exercises were:

  • Star Jumps
  • SSH
  • Standard Merkins
  • Alternating Lunge Jumps
  • Carolina Dry Docks
  • Dying Cockroaches

Mosey to the wall on the back side of Target, for People’s Chair. 5-count down the line, mixing in some hands out, hands up, etc.

Weaving in and out of the balls (heh heh, “balls”), we jogged around Target, up the down escalator, and meandered through the middle parking deck. We then stopped for:

  • SSH x 20
  • Standard Merkins x 20

Run up the parking deck ramp, around the Six Forks Road side of the shopping center, returning to J.C. Penny’s for Balls to the Wall, Q count to 45 (YHC got tired).

We gathered at the far end of the parking lot for a down-and-back sprint to keep the blood pumping, then circled up for…


  • American Hammers x 20
  • LBC x 20
  • Homer-to-Marge x 20
  • Low Slow Flutter x 20
  • Freddy Mercury x 20
  • Box Cutters x 20


  • Announcements = Haven House is a great opportunity for giveback, give it a shot. Several other workout announcements and 2nd F opportunities that YHC can’t recall. Congratulations to Elmer Fudd and M. Elmer Fudd on their new baby girl!
  • Prayer Requests = Deliverance’s and Red Dog’s grade school friend, who was senselessly killed in Wilmington.
  • Led out with kind words of renewal by Elsinore

-Azul out…
