Timber (MIP)

21 — how ’bout ya’? — men gathered at Charlotte Rescue Mission to get better. Here’s what they did, and didn’t do.

YHC eyeballed this beauty a block away on the drive in, and had all kinds of ideas and inspiration. (World’s worst GoRuck?)

… but decided instead to go for the metaphorical:

The Thang

  • We warmed up – 0 to 60 – to Ke$ha and PitBull’s Timber, alternating through a few lyric-guided exercises:
    • Hold plank position, drop for a Merkin at each lyric of “Timber” or “Goin’ Down;”
    • Perform SSH, Air-Raid drop at each of the same cues;
    • Perform SSH, Squat at each of the same cues.
    • If you’re counting, a total of 36 “Timber/Down’s”
  • Mosey to park’s lot for some COP, which included:
    • Imperial Walkers
    • LBC’s
    • Merkins
  • Jog to bridge, lunge over the bridge and to the Memorial Park;
  • Partner up, one partner runs the steps-4th St. Ext.-ramp back down loop, while other performs:
    • Derkins
    • Step-Ups
    • Dips
    • LBC’s
    • Sump Jump Squats
  • Jog to soccer field area for some Mary
  • Jog home with your partner, doing lunge-walks, then mosey, then backwards mosey up the hill.
  • COT.


  • Welcome to FNG’s Will (27, “Tiny Umbrella”) and Larry (58, “Watchman”). Great to be out with ya’ll, as always.
  • Next week, same bat time, same bat channel.
