Don’t Bogart That Joint

Don’t Bogart That Joint

No one got toasted this morning when eight people showed up in 32° weather to see if I would hand out baggies filled with contraband at my VQ. But since no one brought snacks to satisfy the munchies, I felt the responsible thing to do would be to keep it all to myself.

So with the jokes out of the way, let’s get on to the sweaty part.

Warm Up

Started off with a nice mosey up to Cuthbertson Rd, then over to Mount Chiseled for a bit of the following:

  • 20 SSH
  • 20 Merkins
  • 15 Low Slow Squats
  • 15 Imperial Walkers

The Thang

Moseyed over to our starting point where we partnered up for a little bit of bucket work, which included:

Buckets Round 1

Partner 1 ran while Partner 2 did shoulder shrugs with a bucket, for three rounds.

Buckets Round 2

Partner 1 ran while Partner 2 did squats with a bucket, then switch with 5 Hand Slap Merkins for three rounds.

Pain Stations

Since there were only eight of us, we were able to spread out and have one person at each Pain Station.

  • Kettlebell Swings
  • War Hammers (Sit up with four American Hammers)
  • Tire Flip
  • Bicep Curls
  • Tricep Extensions with Cinder Block
  • Chest Presses with Slam Balls
  • Battle Ropes
  • Cadence Running


I got there at five to set up all the gear, and almost didn’t get done in time. With that, my respect and gratitude for all the people who Q much more often than me has exploded. Going forward I will try to help in that area more often.

According to Zinfandel we broke two miles, which I was hoping for. I heard a few complaints from folks on the buckets, which I was expecting, but as I was trying not to pass out myself, I found the will to ignore them. It was my intention to set up the Pain Stations a little better, but just ran out of time. All in all, it was a solid full body workout. Thankful for all the men who let me borrow gear and helped clean up afterwards.

Note, the storage locker is very much in need of some repair / reorganization / love. It basically fell apart when I opened it.


  • Zinfandel is Q at Floater tomorrow
  • Dash for Downs (The new Bone Frog) is this Saturday
  • Recalculating has a son (Owen) going in for an MRI today, so TAPs are appreciated
