@ 5:11 YHC que’d up AC/DC “Are You Ready”, but was drowned out by Chilipepper’s Insane Clown motivational music – who am I to interrupt that insanity?
5:15, (5) core principles and mosey to the northernmost traffic circle on Cattlemen. Pax were instructed to circle up all the way around the traffic circle. YHC took the stage in the middle of the circle, and THE Brutus worshipping commenced with (20) Sun Gods, intended to be toward YHC / the stage, but a few smarty pants pax did a 180 and gave YHC a view of their posterior. SSH’s, one lap around the circle, a couple other forgotten exercises and mosey back to the astroturf with some nur, butt kickers and high knees mixed in.
Upon return to the turf, YHC introduced the Suncoast pax to a brutal exercise picked up in Columbus – the Mogul, named in honor of, well, a guy named Mogul. It goes like this: start @ plank, go to low plank, back to high plank, right arm straight out, RTP (Return to plank), left arm straight out, RTP, right arm up/under/back up, RTP, left arm up/under/back up, RTP, merkin. That’s one. Pax got through 5.
Brutus Burpee challenge: YHC created a special playlist of favorite upbeat rock tunes, all by fairly obscure artists. YHC advised that if anyone could name any of the artists of any one of the songs, the prize would be 10 burpees. See below for results.
Simple. 7-11’s on the turf. Some sets were completed long-ways on the length of the turf, some are cross-ways the width of the turf. Unless noted otherwise, mode to each exercise is run. After each set, take a lap around the outside of the turf area, including the closest parking row to the turf within the row..
- Lengthwise = Sun Gods / Gas Pumps
- Width-wise = Merkins / Squats
- Lengthwise = SSH (1x) / Evander Holyfield (2x)
- Width-wise = LBC /Big Boys (NOTE: mode = bearcrawl)
(9) sets of 7-11’s were prepared, 4 sets were completed.

Brother Cane: Hard Act to Follow
Jason & The Scorchers: Golden Ball & Chain
