Uncle Phil DMZ VQ

Uncle Phil DMZ VQ


14 PAX who had not been lulled into a false sense of security by recent warm temps showed up to experience a DMZ VQ.  Brolympics recently left a mark on YHC so mileage was kept under control to mitigate permanent hamstring damage. Hopefully enough squats were called to compensate.

Professional quality disclaimer was given and we were off.

Mosey to school parking lot to get warm.


  • 15x SSH
  • 10x Merkin
  • 15x Mountain Climber
  • 15x  Low Slow Squat

The Thang

Mosey to track and partner up

Partner 1 – 400m run

Partner 2 – Performs deconstructed burpee exercises until partner 1 returns. Flapjack until 4 rounds complete.

  • Lap 1 – Plank hold
  • Lap 2 – Merkin
  • Lap 3 – Jump Squat
  • Lap 4 – Burpee

Mosey to front of school, stopping for some entertainment along the way

  • 1 min+ of peoples chair
  • More low slow squats

Find a bench and complete three sets of the following

  • 10x Dips
  • 10x Incline Merkin
  • 10x Carolina Drydock
  • Bear crawl to curb at school entrance and jog back

More low slow squats

AYG back to church parking lot, winner leads 6 minutes of Mary (YHC was not present to declare a winner, possibly Swiper?)

Various orthodox and unorthodox Mary exercises were performed

Mosey back to launch, bonus jump squats with remaining minute.



An honor to take the helm of DMZ for my first Q, strong work by all!

All pax (even Swiper) joined us in a timely manner this morning so YHC saw no need to venture into a neighborhood to add a hide and seek dimension.

YHC was accused of still having tags on his beanie, conveniently a hat with headlights was nearby to confirm it was simply design work on the hat, however lame.

Track work results seemed to be mixed depending on individual PAX motivation level. YHC is fine with that, you’re up against yourself.

Bear crawls appear to be a favorite with most. Found Kirk crawling in odd directions and staring longingly at Camp Gladiator participants running around cones nearby.

Mumblechatter seemed muted as we headed to the track. YHC was prepared to ignore. Picked up steam at chair sit, YHC ignored. Bench work was not suffered in quiet, YHC continued to ignore. Nearly reached mutiny levels during Mary, for good reason as YHC was losing cognitive abilities. Some response attempted. Luckily time was up so little harm done. First Q complete.

Strong VQ Uncle Phil. Way to fight through the hamstring, the emissions and the chatter to bring it home. And thanks to Bushwood for bringing the shovel flag back from hibernation. Finally.
