A very old football warm up exercise created by former Apopka High School football coach Morton "Bull" Grit. It is essentially a set of squats but spelling 'Darter" in between every rep. What's funny about this is that the letters are made from the body. So if you want an exercise that really gets around, try doing some Darter Downs. You will love it! They are so fun you'll be Dartin' through the mud.
Bull: Hey Bryant, you feel like some exercise? How about a round of Darter Downs?

Bryant: Darter Downs? I don't know what you're talking about.

Bull: (growling) Sure you do. We've done these hundreds of times. Remember, you squat and spell 'Darter'? You know, you use your body to spell it. Remember how fun they are? Come on, let's do a set!

Amos: Darter Downs? I'll bet you Laotian Kips you can't do 50 of them. (saluting) Ten HUT!

Bryant: You're on, you big brig! If only Grandma Marty could see this. (Bull and Bryant start doing Darter Downs) D-A-R-T-E-R. Grrrrrr!

Bull: (laughing at Bryant) He better pay up! He lost. You know, I was once stationed in Ventiane, the capital of Laos.

Bryant: (starts doing another Darter Down) Wow! These are so much fun. From Vero Beach to Ventiane, the Darter Down's got it going on.

Bull: High wing! These rock!

Amos: You've sold me. Here's your Kips.
