Many moons ago, this man on the scooter woke-up and ran around a park by himself doing burpees and push-ups in cadence. I wouldn’t do that but that’s ok. He did and look what he did.

This man had foresight (or needed a friend). After months and months of repetition, his little hair brain idea caught fire. It grew and grew until it became a bit of a logistical problem (50 PAX members a week). Out of scooter boys work-out (W.I.B.), Young Guns was born. Young Guns is essentially W.I.B. with effort (just kidding WIB attendees – not really).

Tomorrow, Raleigh launches with THE JUDGE. It is a hybrid of the WIB and Young Guns. #chocolateandvanilla

I’m honored to carry the work-out to Raleigh (I never asked anyone’s permission) and hope I can do half as good of a job that Haywood, Waco, Caesar, and Gandalf do in Charlotte.

Come ready to work as we are going to go hard at THE JUDGE each week!

Pre-Blast: The Dojo


Run down the greenway from the front parking lot toward the blue loop.

Take a right on the blue loop and run the loop until you get to the huge croquet wickets (about 3/4 of a mile).

Partner A – Continue down the path next to the huge croquet wickets until you arrive at the sail kite. Do 10 burpees there and continue on the path around to the house in the park to meet your partner at the bridge to the dojo.

Partner B- While Partner A is running around the loop, run into the Dojo House and do 25 dips, 25 jump-ups, 25 derkins, and 25 LBCs. When finished, head back out to the end of the dojo.

Switch – Partner B runs (does burpees) and Partner A heads into the Dojo.

Must high five after each interval to proceed to the next. No cheating.

You should try to get around at least five times. 125 dips, 125 derkins, 125 jump-ups, 125 LBCs and 50 burpees.

I’ll call it 6:08. We’ll run the blue loop back the way we came to the parking lot (about 3/4 of a mile).

See you at 5:30 at the NC Art Museum! Come break THE JUDGE in.
