Hippee Hill Hell

A cool, crisp morning greeted 8 of Charlotte’s finest to a workout environment we thought was heaven….until it went to hell. This is what happens when nobody signs up for the Q and RopeADope has to come up with it at 10pm the night before.

The Thang:

Warmup: SSH, Merkins, Windmill, LBC, 5 Burpees (OYO)

Partner up. Farmer’s carry/Catch me if you can w/ bells (10 merkins) to Hippee Hill.

Now for the fun part: 4 rounds of hell (3 planned)

Same partners. Partner 1 runs to top of hill, does 5 burpees. Partner 2 does called exercise until Part 1 returns. Flap jack. When both have done called exercise, move to next exercise.

Round 1

  • Lawnmowers
  • Tricep Extension
  • 6 inch protractor (holding bell up)
  • Power 2 the People (Grapevine’s favorite, make him do this at every KB workout)

Round 2

  • Goblet Squat
  • Hammer Curls
  • 6 inch protractor (holding bell up)
  • Renegade Rows

Round 3

  • Russian Twist
  • Snatch
  • 6 inch protractor (holding bell up)
  • Squat Press

Plenty of time left, so let’s do a Round 4!

  • Something (I forget, grapevine was the inspiration here)
  • Woodchopper
  • 6 inch protractor (holding bell up)
  • Power 2 the People (worried Grapevine was going to throw his bell at me by now)

Farmer’s carry/Catch me if you can back to the start.


I feared for my life when I called burpees at the top of the hill – Coopdog yelled some expletives. Was scared again when I called a Round 4 and picked Power 2 the People just for Grapevine.

Overall solid effort by a small group of Charlotte’s finest.
