Northeast Tennessee

Ah 1-2 Ah 1-2

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Iron Horse (Founders Park)

10 Men rolled out of the sack to see what was stirring on a muggy (aren’t they all lately) 70 degree morning at Iron Horse. Even though, as I sit on my porch typing this, there’s a great breeze blowing and it feels more pleasant at 11:00 AM than it did at 5:30 AM. 




BUT WAIT!! Before The Thang we had a burpee train situation. 

You may proceed…

We partnered up for a good old fashion DORA beat down that included lots of coupon reps and many much hill climbs. Of course as per historical records a plethora of Side Straddle Hops were included. 

Cumulative reps between partners. While one ran to the top of tombstone hill, completed 20 SSHs and headed back, the other put in the exercise reps, switching after every lap.

  • 100 Mercans
  • 200 Squats
  • 100 Over Head Press
  • 200 Rows
  • 100 Big Boy Sit-ups
  • 200 Curls

Oddly enough the reps and the timing seemed to work out for once, even after dodging an unusual amount of traffic throughout the morning. 



Some words written by smart people

“Some believe that it is only great power that can keep evil at bay, but that is not what I have found. I believe It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk. Small acts of kindness and love.”
