Grab your Partner Dosey Doe

Grab your Partner Dosey Doe

40 men braved the gloom on a fine spring morning for a nice variety of downpainments!  Salt lick led the group through the woods to the park and playground for the start of the workout:

Warm-up run around the parking lot

  • Merkinsx20
  • IWx25
  • SSHx25
  • High Kneesx15

Next the group moved to the playground  for a few pain stations (3 stations with pax split into 3 groups)

  • 30 Decline Merkins
  • 20 Carolina Dry Docks
  • 10 Wide Grip Pull-ups
  • Rinse and Repeat with Incline Merkins, Narrow CDDs, Narrow or Underhand Grip PU Rinse and Repeat with Regular Ea Exercise

Salt Lick closed out the front end of the work-out with some “get to know your partner” exercises.

  • Partner Dipsx15-flapjack (partner 1 in table position, partner 2 faces away doing dips)
  • Partner Elbow Curlsx20-flapjack
  • Rinse and repeat

Baracus led the pax over to the hill, and then to another hill for some ladders

  • Sprint up hill
  • 1 burpee at the top
  • Run down
  • 6 squats at the bottom
  • Repeat (2 burpees/5 squats, 3 burpees/4 squats….etc.)

Mosey to the football field for some interval work

  • Sprint length of field 
  • 20x air squats
  • jog back
  • repeat 2x more with (10x alternating jump lunges, 20x LBC)


A record turnout today since the launch of “The Maul” at Stonecrest – 40 strong!  Each week we are gaining a little sunlight during the workout, but clearly the headlamps were still needed today as we wandered through the woods.  Those in front had no trouble finding the trail, but in the darkness it takes a long time to move 40 men in the same direction…and apparently not to be forgotten in the light too as YHC found out later when looking for a good ladder hill.  Salt lick got us started with some great upper body pain stations (my shoulders are burning), but the crowd really enjoyed the partner exercises.  The partner dip exercises had the pax talking.  Some were wondering if they should have taken their partner to dinner first, while others felt the need for a cold shower.  We certainly know each other better now!

YHC took over and led the pax over to the hill, where they could enjoy cat-calls from the ladies working out on the other side of the fence.  After all were in position on the hill, Salt lick graciously pointed out that this was the wrong hill… there goes a couple of minutes that would save the pax from one extra sprint at the end of the workout.  We finished with some intervals on the football field while after the sun came up, and despite my best effort to get one more sprint in we called it a day.  Great work guys!


  • Complete the survey if you haven’t already!  150 responses = TR in a kilt at Bagpipe
  • Devil’s Turn will be changing locations from the McAlpine Greenway entrance on Sardis Rd to the Greenway at Piper Glen (near Trader Joes)…more to come on this from the Shore
