62 Degrees. Incredible thick fog, limited visibility, and nearly perfect.

The Disclaimer

It’s important. Always. This is a peer led workout, YHC is not a professional, all PAX are here of their own free will, push yourself but modify if necessary, and be aware of your surroundings.

The Thang

The PAX were introduced to the newest addition to our AO – a 350 pound tire. Which is to be named by the PAX that break it in.

The Indian Roll

If you’ve ever done an Indian Run your already halfway there — the first man rolls the tire man in the back does a 5 count and sprints to the front to take on the roll. In order to maintain safety the PAX are encouraged to keep it in line and keep it slow.

Up and Over

Line up and hold plank. The first man runs up and over the tire and gets back into formation holding plank. Rinse and repeat x 5.

Big Tire Jumps

Line up and hold plank, this time equal distance from the tire. Run to the tire and either box jump onto the tire or clear it (if you are safely able) go across then box jump (or clear) back over and run back into formation. Rinse and repeat x 5.

Partner Push

PAX Line up abreast about arms length apart, all movements go from stage left to stage right. Our numbers weren’t even so this is one way to do the partner push:

The first PAX, The Roller, rolls the tire to the second man, The Pusher, and gives it a hefty shove toward The Pusher making sure that he is braced and prepared for the weight. The Pusher catches the tire and pushes it back toward The Roller. This sequence is repeated by The Roller until the end of the line has been reached. The first man is always the new roller.

The alternative is to have the pax line up facing one another and hold squat / run in place / jump squats while they wait for the tire to make its way down the line. One line pushes to the other as many times as the Q deems appropriate then rolls it down.

Little Baby Crunches x 50


The tire will henceforth be called BRUTOS as named by the PAX who broke her in.

The name is as easy as this:

Big Round Ugly Tire Of Suck

Treat her right or she will crush you.


There’s a quote that is typically attributed to being an African proverb that goes something like:

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

I can’t attest to the validity of the quote but it’s easy to logically see and understand that it holds some level of truth.

Today, we moved together — and YHC is hoping to highlight the pace at which we move as a unit. A single PAX can move fast but under great weight or at great distances what can be accomplished doesn’t not compare to what we can do slowly together. We look after one another while we are making complex movements, navigate risk, calculate strength, and identify weakness as a group.

YHC reminded the PAX that in a time of non-stop immediate gratification at every corner, sometimes fast isn’t always better.
