Guess what day it is? Leap Day!



Guess what day it is? Leap Day!

I’ve been cooped up in the house with the kids all week with the M away on a cruise. No posting for me meant I needed a good makeup Q to get out all the pent up aggression. Or something like that. It just so happened that this Q fell on Leap Day, so what better way to celebrate than with some leaping of our own.

Warm Up

  • Quick mosey down the gravel path to the bollards and back to the roundabout and circle up
  • 20x – Side Straddle Leaps (2 jump squats after every 5th SSH)
  • 20x – Peter Parker Leaping Spiders (5 bomb jacks after every 5th Peter Parker)
  • 15x – Merkins
  • 20x – Plank Jacks
  • 20x – Parker Peter Spider Leapers (5 bomb jacks after every 5th Parker Peter)

 

The Thang

  • Lunging Bear Leaps
    • Bear Crawl 6 paces
    • Lunge 4 total
    • Broad Leap 2 times 
    • Repeato the length of the lot
  • Paula Abduls at the trees
    • 2 trees up – 10 Dry Docks
    • 1 tree back – 5 Diamond Merkins
    • Repeato around the corner
  • Suicides in the parking lot
    • 10 Dips on the curb
    • 10 Bobby Hur-Leaps at the start
    • Repeato on all three curbs
  • Partners – Cindy – 10 laps (5 each partner)
    • Music playlist:
      • Jump Around by the aptly name House of Pain
      • Jump by Kriss Kross
      • Jump by Van Halen
    • P1
      • 5 pull-ups
      • 10 Merkins
      • 15 Squats 
    • P2
      • Lap around the lot
  • Gassers – curb and back
    • 10x – Curb jump burpees
    • 10x – Bonnie Blairs
    • 10x – Mike Tysons
    • Repeato to the second curb with 5 reps of each
  • Burpee circle
    • Run the roundabout loop
    • Do a burpee
    • Repeato and add an extra burpee each time

At this point I’ve had about enough of those burpees. Doesn’t help that I’m trying to keep up with Goodfella (not happening). Audible! There are some brand new picnic tables set up next to the bathrooms so we mosey over to break them in. Partner up and share some dips on the table benches while your partner takes a lap around the bathhouse. 50 dips. No, 100 dips. Well, how about switch to Derkins (bad idea) to finish us out.

 

Moleskin

For those wondering:

  • 130 Dry Docks
  • 65 Diamond Merkins
  • 25 pull-ups
  • 50 Merkins
  • 75 Squats
  • A bunch of other stuff

This was my first time as Q at Commitment. Only my 3rd time (I think) posting there, so I checked out some other PAX’ weinkes to get some ideas of where to venture out to. We didn’t get TOO far from the shovel flag but still managed to get around 3.2 miles in. Speaking of weinkes…a certain Italian/Jersey guy grabbed my weinke and put it in his pants while we were checking out Cindy. I think he saw the Gassers and was hoping if he stole it I wouldn’t remember what to do. Turns out I had it all locked down in the old noggin, plus a good Q always has a backup copy. So a caution to you other Qs out there…there’s a rogue weinke grabber on the loose. Keep your eyes peeled!

 

Announcements

  • Q Source
    • Starting a new series in May
    • Friday’s from 0630 to 0700
    • McDonald’s at Cureton
    • Talk to Shop Dawg if you have questions

Shop Dawg had some words to share straight from Q Source. We all need to tame our King, Queen, and Jester. The King is the 1st F; it’s the physical work we put into shaping our bodies. The Queen is what we put into our bodies; you can’t out-King the Queen. Work on your eating habits. The Jester is the thing that drags us down, distracts us, and prevents us from accomplishing the goals we have for ourselves. This might be different for every PAX. Identify your Jester. Make a plan to tame it. Shield lock with a fellow PAX to hold you accountable. Attend Q Source to learn more.

YHC took us out. #cradletograve
