YHC had wanted a football practice style workout for a while – sort of taking back old school but minus the Riddell coaches’shorts (do they even still make those?). Then the midterm elections happened so why not combine the two. Add a whistle, and voila – democracy and grass drills! I figured that I would let the pax have choices on certain exercises, and in the true form of our great democracy; either listen to the people, or decide what’s truly best for them myself. Flutie Flakes had thought that after high school and college, he wouldn’t have to do exercises at the tune of a whistle – YHC is glad to bring him back to his hay days. Mighty Mite got confused with democracy and grass drills – they are the same thing if you think about it! Heartbreaker was hoping for only two hill climbs on the grass drills – Coach YHC obliged due to O2 deprivation. I personally liked the competitive shuttle runs. Competition pushes pax even when they are tired. None of us wants to lose and have punishment. I enjoyed leading as always, and hope that the extra flavor was enjoyed by all. Maybe in February we can have a NFL combine style workout – YHC will bring my whistle!
