It was no ordinary Monday at the Thicket. One of our nearest and dearest FiA Cherokee Fab 5 leaders turned 40 today and it’s time to celebrate. By the power not at all invested in me by the State of Georgia, I, Rise Up, hereby declare that June 15th be henceforth known as Chocolate Chip Day. Happy birthday to you, girl. We celebrated you hard.

We started out with some warm up stretches and the usual “get your heart rate going” exercises and moved on to:


I grouped four exercises with 10 reps or sets each to equal “40” and it was a perfect even number totalling 16 exercises and 4 groups. We took a lap after each group. Each exercise that started with the letter “C” was done in cadence.

C  Carolina Dry Docks x 10 (ic)

H  Happy Jacks x 10 (5 jumping jacks in cadence followed by 2 jump squats… YAY!)

O  Overhead Press x 10

C  Cherry Pickers x 10 ic


O  O’s and X’s x 10

L  Lateral Arm Raises x 10

A  American Pie Sit Ups x 10

T  Thread the Needle x 10 sets


E  Extensions Tricep x 10

C  Crab Cakes x 10 ic

H  Hip Dips x 10 sets

I  Inchworms x 10


P  Peter Parkers x 10 sets

D  Donkey Kicks x 10 sets

A  Alternating Shoulder Taps x 10 sets

Y  Yves Poll (Backwards Lap)

We had some time left over so we did some work on our abs and arms. 20 reps of each of the following exercises:


Russian Twists

Pretzel Crunches

Plank 30 seconds

Weighted Side Bends

Raggedy Anne’s


Imperial Walkers


Apple Pickers


Tricep Push ups

Bicep Curls

Squat Thrusters

We took another lap and did some light stretching and circled up for COT and prayers. 2.0s outnumbered the pax by what seemed like 100, but 2 of them didn’t have names. We celebrate Andrew, 4 years old, Happy birthday buddy. Thanks for giving up a little of your morning to be with us. We hope you had the best birthday ever! We named Andrew Curious George. Next up, Simon, who loves all the truck things, so Truckin! So glad to spend the day together celebrating one of my favorite friends on the planet. I hope your day was as awesome as you, Chocolate Chip. Good times. Happy Chocolate Chip Day!

Until next time,

Rise Up
