PAX (8): Hazmat (RESPECT!), Ricardo, Nancy, Graffiti (RESPECT!), Ozone, Snakes on a Plane, Saban, Nomex

QIC: Saban

The Arise parking lot was strangely vacant when YHC arrived and began setting up.  Normally there are several cars in the parking lot, evidence of the strong EC following among the Arisers.  YHC was beginning to wonder whether the preceding evenings of the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day may have made the fartsack an insurmountable foe, when the site-Q arrived and then more PAX began showing up.  With the pillars listed, disclaimers made, and mission statement given, we stayed by the shovel flag for…


  • Goof Balls x15 IC
  • Windmills x15 IC >
  • String Rippers x15 IC
  • Moroccan Nightclubs x15 IC >
  • Chinooks x15 IC >
  • Sun Gods x15 IC >
  • Reverse Sun Gods x15 IC
  • Parker Peters x10 IC

We then moseyed around the block to the front side of the church parking lot near Friendly Avenue for…

The Thang 1

This could also be referred to as a pre-thang ladder.  PAX were lined up at the wall side of the parking lot with the curb directly across serving as the other side of the ladder.  It began with

  • Dips x6
  • Dirty Hookups x1

Until the reps were reversed for the exercises.

EC Bear Crawl to the other side of the lot where the Sugar Rays met the rest of the PAX and YHC explained…
