Backblast – LaGrange BlackOps – 04/26/2021

Focker was in need of a Q for the LaGrange BlackOps and I took the plunge. Having visited what is also known as The Patriot site a few times, it was only a matter of time before I picked up a Q. And, today felt like a good day to do it. Plus, it’s Monday – and there’s nothing better than starting your week off on the right foot getting right with a group of like minded men.

Time was called and disclaimer was given just as Boss Hog was exiting his truck.


  • Yankovic (R)
  • Holy Roller (R)
  • Boss Hog (R)
  • Focker
  • Swag
  • Softwood
  • Jolly Rancher (Q)

We circled up around the Harvey P. Oldham statue for some COP, which included the following:

  • SSH – 25x in cadence
  • Downward Dog + Runners Stretches
  • Grass Grabbers – 10x in cadence
  • Toy Soldiers – 20x in cadence
  • Copperhead Squats – 20x in cadence

The Thang – Four Corners:

My rendition of four corners – which is perfect with a true city block to play with. We started where we began COP, which is next to the Sir Charles T. Oldham statue. I told the PAX we’d be doing 2 reps at the first corner of an exercise, then continuing clockwise adding 2 reps at each corner until we made two full laps. I then asked Holy Roller how many reps that would be on the last station…it took him a while, but he got it, which was 16 reps. So, for those math majors, that’s a total of 72 reps and about 0.5 miles for one round. The early finishers of each round got in some extra credit work doing some core exercises until the six arrived.

Rounds included:

  • Merkins
  • Jump Squats
  • Groiners
  • Big Boy Sit-ups

We had a few extra minutes left as a train slowly creeped into Oldham County. So, we did a Dip Waterfall. Basically I started with 10 dips counting outloud to 3, then the PAX to my left started. Rinse and repeat all the way around until it came back to me and then we did it again, but 9 reps. Then 8 reps, etc. all the way down to 1 rep.

Time was then called.


Countarama, namearama, announcements and intentions.

Always a pleasure to lead!

Jolly Rancher out!
