DOUBLE-ALARM-CLOCK



DOUBLE-ALARM-CLOCK

A final text from Sprockets with advice to “Better double-alarm-clock this one” ensured that YHC got no
sleep the night before his VQ. However, that’s a small price to pay compared to the ridicule and
torment the PAX would have put me through had an alarm not went off.
23 brave PAX joined for the first time Q at Hydra. Scratch and Win brought a guest and after YHC gave
the memorized disclaimer and got the nod from Sprockets, we were off:
Warm-up:
– Mosey to the West Olde Providence Elementary and circle up for:
o 15 Side-Straddle Hops (IC)
o 15 Imperial Walkers (IC)
o 15 Low Slow Squats (IC)
o 15 Mountain Climbers (IC)
– After messing up on counting during Mountain Climbers, YHC took in the ridicule from the PAX,
recovered, and we Moseyed back to the East parking lot.
The Thang:
After much debate, I heeded the advice of our site-Qs and kept it simple for this first workout:
– 4 Corners
o 3 loops (10/20/30 of each exercise per round) – Plank up between each round to wait
on the 6)
 Corner 1 (Benches on East corner of school) – Step-ups (each leg)
 Corner 2 (Benches on West corner of school) – Derkins
 Corner 3 (Basketball Court) – Jump Squats
 Corner 4 (North End of Launch Parking Lot) – Carolina Dry Docks

– Mosey to the Church parking lot and grab a running rock (YHC drowned out the groans that
were coming from the PAX and pressed forward)
o Take a NASCAR (yes, only left turns) loop around the church neighborhood doing 10
curls & 10 triceps press at every other stoplight

o Some Mary was done in the parking lot as we gathered up the 6, then Lunge-walked the
driveway to Rea Road, much to the chagrin of the PAX, before moseying back to the
launch

– 5 Minutes of Mary (Can a former swimmer lead a workout without some Flutter? I think not!)
DONE!
No announcements and a big shout out to Snowflake for the prayer takeout.
Moleskin:
Many thank to Gummy and Sprockets for the opportunity to lead and do this VQ at home. You both
were instrumental in the leadup and execution today. Thank you. Great effort this morning by some
solid men. After discovering the hidden Reebok logo on his hat, there was little debate that our FNG,
brought out by Scratch and Win, and Nike Golf Pro would be named Reebok and forever be known by
his company’s competition.
Reebok, this is a great group and you’ve already taken the first step in posting. Looking forward to
seeing you at a future Hydra workout.
Nobody injured, nobody lost, and we broke in FNG Pete (aka Reebok)……that’s success in my book.

It’s a good thing we live in the age of google maps, where awareness of cardinal directions is not a prerequisite for a successful Q. Well done, Slingshot. You are now a man.
