For those of you unable to play rugby, but still yearning to combine sporting competition, exercise and beer, check out the Atlanta Hash House Harriers.  Hashing is an activity whose origins are traced by some folks to the exact same place as rugby football, The Rugby School, in Rugby, England.  Coincidence or Providence?

    My stomach hurts and I am still a little confused…
    Since I don’t believe I can actually perform an L pullup, what is the suitable replacement? Last time this came up, I did “L negatives,” is that what you all recommend for this workout as well?

    Margaret, there are several substitutions for an L-pullup:
    The first is the N-pullup, where instead of putting your feet straight out, you just crunch up your legs, which still hits the abs, but not as much strain as with the legs fully extended.
    The second substitution is the strict-form pull-up, where you pull up without any kipping.
    The third substitution is the kipping pull-up.

    I believe that’s called delerium tremens.

    Hashing! I was a hasher for 2-3 years while at GT. There was a whole bunch of us from my fraternity that used to go run them and lay trail for them (aka haring a trail). It was awesome! A lot of hash virgins pop their cherry by doing the SLUT hash (Slow, Lazy, Urban Thursdays), usually held on the first Thursday of each month. It is held within the metro area and is no more than 4 miles long with dinner and beer provided afterward. And after your fifth hash, you are given a dirty nickname usually meant to embarrass the new hasher. Mine is Trifucta. And I can’t say why that is embarrassing…

    Dear Bethanie,
    I heard crying about it usually helps.
    Sincerely,

    Hashing is pretty big out here in Japan! I have participated in the Kanagawa Samurai Hash a couple of times…there are actually a lot of Japanese people that do it in addition to the expats and military folks. I did my first hash on the very first day I arrived in Japan over a year ago. Some guys from my ship were going, so I just followed them, and next thing I knew, I was running through Japanese neighborhoods and fields of bamboo shoots. Then at the end, I had to chug a beer with Japanese people singing “Like a Virgin” to me and the other hash virgins. Fun times. Then, one of my friends had just earned his hash name, and they all decided to call him the japanese term for “horny cow.” Apparently the word is very offensive in Japanese…you could tell the by the way the Japanese people reacted to it when someone said it.

    I think I might like a sport that allows us to use hash while we train. I am in….

    As Rx: 7 rounds plus 7 L-pull ups.
    Better than I expected, and that was the easiest time I’ve ever had with hspu. The L-pull ups were another story however, they were truly brutal.
