Chillcut Plank: 30 Seconds


[9] Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. [10] For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! [11] Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? [12] And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken. [Ecclesiastes 4:9–12]

  • God-recognizing companionship results in better results, and protects against threats from threats within and without, including our own stupidity.


  • PUMBAS originated because YHC had four exercises in mind, and when arranging them realized it was pretty close to PUMBA.
    • BB title comes from this scene featuring the classic Lion King character.
    • Upon further investigation while writing this BB, YHC discovered the spelling is actually PUMBAA. Alas.
  • “Upside-down Peter Parkers” were a bit of a stretch–both in conception and execution. The idea was to look like Spider-man crawling on the ceiling. In practice most PAX looked like a turtle that had fallen on its shell.
  • Most PAX (especially YHC) did not/only barely made it into the Squats section of PUMBAS.
  • Proper-form Merkins are hard. YHC is not fast at them.
  • Big Boi Sit-Ups on playground rubber: good idea. Big Boi Sit-Ups on playground rubber covered in a smattering of mulch: less of a good idea.
  • Thriller joined the group at approximately 0545; Quote: “I can stop to take a $#!+ and be late or I can go straight there and $#!+ my pants.”
  • As the sunrise comes earlier, newer areas/possibilities are being discovered with regards to this AO.
    • The Park Ranger drove by at approximately 0600, but didn’t even bother antagonizing the group as we were within the legal bounds of sunrise-sunset. Quote: “We just got here.”
