How to take care of a Baby (rock, that is)

June 9, 2022

I was at Dromedary on June 8th when Das Boot asked me to Q at the Body Shop the following day. Initially, I said I wouldn’t be able to do it, but upon further consideration, how could I turn down an offer from the 2021 Passport Challenge Phenom that is Mr. Boot?

Not much time to prepare, let’s see what I can come up with…


Mosey to entrance to school parking lot

SSH x10

Morrocan Nightclub x10

Runner’s pose (L then R)

Low Slow Squat x10

The Thang, Pt. 1

I had set aside about 10 equally sized rocks before the workout.

Grab a rock and run with it towards the fire station, stopping at each light to do 5 merkins.

I decided that I didn’t want to run much day, so we only ran about 2/3 of the way to the fire station.

Turn around and do 5 Low Slow Squats at each light on way back.

Stop at the Rea View Elementary School sign for the 6.

The Thang Pt. 2

“Consecutive Exercise” Starfish with your baby rock

Corner One: Exercise 1: Mike Tysons with rock / Exercise 2: Squats with rock / Exercise 3: LBC (with rock on ground)

Corner Two: Exercise 1: Bent over rows with rock / Exercise 2: Overhead Press with rock / Exercise 3: Calf raises with rock

Corner Three: Exercise 1: “V-Up” with rock / Exercise 2: SSH (rock on ground) / Exercise 3: Tricep extension with rock

Corner Four: Exercise 1: Curls with rock / Exercise 2: Dry Docks (No rock) / Exercise 3: Bench Press on back with rock

Center Exercise: 4 Burpees

This “Consecutive Exercise” Burpee works as follows: Complete all four of Exercise 1 (of course you do the Center Exercise like a regular Starfish). Then complete all four of Exercise 2, etc.

We did 8 reps in the corner and 4 burpees in the center.


Rifle carry with rock to flat field next to parking lot stopping for curls, tricep work, and squats with said rock.

The Thang Pt. 2 :

Same as The Thang Pt. 1 except 1 burpee in the middle and 5 reps at each corner.

Mosey back to rock pit to put our “babies” away then mosey to COT.


For me, the funniest part of the workout was when we came back down the hill and I announced that we were going to do a Starfish because we “had’t done a Starfish, yet”. The look of befuddlement on @j-wow’s face was priceless. I wish I had a video of that.

There were announcements.
