The Forge is always a great and fun place to post, even more so to Q! Due to some shifting schedules of a soon-to-be-announced home/home series, YHC stepped in to lead the workout this week. Still hung over from those damn State Fair hot dogs with onions and chili, YHC putt-putt-putted on out to Pullen Park to get it done.

Warm Up

Jog from the parking lot up the road to the turnaround. Lunge Walks and King David Walks along the way to get the blood flowin’. Circle up!

  • Good Morning x 25
  • Imperial Walkers x 25
  • SSH x 25
  • LBC x 25
  • Standard Merkins x 25

The Thang

Jog to the home of the Wolfpack, up the NE stairwell of the Reynolds/Case Parking Deck. Partner up for the next exercise:

P1 runs down the stairwell, completes and exercise, runs back to meet P2, who has run a lap around the top level of the deck. Meet and do Partner Clap Merkins x 10. Flapjack. In between these exercise change-ups, YHC threw in some LBCs, Squats, Freddie Mercury’s, etc.

  • Exercise 1 (bottom of steps) – 5 x Standard Merkins
  • Exercise 2 – 10 x Star Jumps
  • Exercise 3 – 15 x LBCs
  • Exercise 4 – 20 x WW2 Situps

Fellowship pace back towards our starting point. Stop once again at the turnaround for some random stuff thrown in there including more Merkins, Homer to Marge’s, etc. Jog back to the parking lot, mixing in a little lunge walk action before dropping to our 6s near the shovel flag.


  • LBC x 20
  • Dying Cockroaches x 20
  • Flutter Kick x 20
  • Freddie Mercury x 20
  • Standard Merkins x 20


  • Announcements for the Pig Pickin’, The Arena, upcoming 3rd F Dinner
  • Prayer Requests for various folks
  • YHC can’t remember who led us out.


YHC believes that the verdict is out on State Fair hot dogs. Yes, they were Brightleaf (yum) but them onions and chili were definitely suspect. Let’s just say, nasty fart bombs have been dropping all week. I let ’em fly like crazy at every post of mine. Dayum!
