Wow! 35 Pax came out to start the week off right! Or to see me fail, and fail I did but you all killed it! If I give it, I gotta take it. Fair is fair and I heard all of your comments, so payback will happen!
Waking up to Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” was a great way to start this fiasco! So let’s do this.
Moseyed 50 feet (felt right)
* No SSH, because those are banned for being silly.
* Shoulder moves, a clue to the rest of the morning.
* Merkins X 10
* Potato pickers
Mosey’ed to the hill. Time to work the shoulders and chest. And time to figure out what the heck we were gonna do. I really thought this was all a joke, in case you didn’t know.
* 25/20/15/10/5 Merkins and hill climbs between each rep.
* 7-1 burpees with hill climbs in between each rep.
* Moneyball with the count… he’s slow. Why I picked him.
At this point, I was not happy with the Q which was me and made it all the more awkward.
Mosey to the big lot. Time for some really bad decisions.
* 20 curb merkins to dry the shoes for the worst Q ideas in the history of worst Q decisions!
* Duck, Duck, Goose time. Big circle w/ planks and squats as we raced around the circle for a little competition. Beckham was the real hero today… he was chasing hard and met the pavement. Stuck it out like a trooper and had the scrapes to prove it!
At this point, realized this was an awful idea. Everyone took a lap around the big circle and we moved on.
Moseyed to find light poles and did Merkins and Squats until we reached the shed. 2nd bad decision to see if we could kick the legs up on the wall and do upside down merkins. I heard audible gasps at this point. Horrible idea.
* Hit each light with assorted 10’s until we reached the rally point.
* Dealer’s Choice to finish it off… which was of course SSH’s. Jokers.
What an awesome sight to see such a huge turnout. Thanks for making my first (and likely last) Q such a blast!
20 PAX showed up at Commitment to see if the RECIPE or the ANTIDOTE for #TennisArms would be revealed. Much to the PAX surprise, YHC actually put together a weinke with more upper body than running.
21 PAX never touched the parking deck at Cerberus but still managed to celebrate #NationalWhineDay with a full carafe of Merlot(s of complaining). Since Cerberus is situated in the mean streets of Waverly, YHC had to coerce some Waxhaw gang members to join me for the 2 hour horse-and-buggy ride north.
THANKS ASTRO FOR TAKING US OUT! Have a great Memorial Day weekend fellas
28 PAX showed up on a (yet another) brisk morning. As we stood around in the wind gusts, most PAX were VERY vocally asking for an earlier than 0530 start time but we had to wait for Moneyball. Not sure what transpired, but MB came back from back from Dasher’s car wearing Dasher’s clothing. It was dark but I’m pretty sure it was his letterman’s jacket. #Awkward Good luck to Dasher getting that back.
Thanks to Moneyball for the takeout!

This (delayed) Backblast comes after some “corporate” peer pressure from @Moneyball and @Bottlecap, which is ironic in and of itself! Since @Moneyball missed some major workout details in his Ghost-written BB in an effort to keep the “streak” alive for The Floater, I wanted to fill in the gaps. Here we go…
Thursday mornings have certainly gotten interesting lately in WaxVegas, with 2 great AO’s starting up recently. Pursuit is an awesome running workout in the/my great neighborhood of Millbridge, but The Floater sets up shop in beautiful downtown Waxhaw. YHC has been conflicted about which to attend since I enjoy both, but haven’t been able to make either lately due to some very overrated work travel.
After Bottle Cap pinch hit for us at Dromedary a few weeks ago, I told him I wanted to return the favor at The Floater. 4/5/18 would be the day for my first Floater Q. Needed to prepare for this, not to disappoint the Pax.
Warmup at Dreamchasers Brewery:
Mosey across The Bridge and Behind Maxwell’s.
At each STOP sign = 3 Burpees. 7 total STOPS for Burpees (21 total).
Mosey back in front of Dreamchasers. Partner up at the Big Tree for “100’s” of each:
All-in we did about (10) additional Burpees (up to 31 total now).
Mosey over to “KeithJongHill” since apparently every Floater workout ends up there
At each STOP sign = Burpees. 12 more Burpees completed. Total of 43 Burpees now.
Grab a Lifting Rock at the new construction site for more partner work.
150 Total Reps of each as a team:
Repeat exercises for 100 reps of each:
Some did 1/2 reps so completed early. Repeat the above for 50 of each. All-in we ran up that nasty hill 10-12 times each.
5-minute warning sounded on YHC’s watch so we moseyed back to the Church. We didn’t forget to STOP for more Burpees so we got in (9) more on the way to COT. Grand Total of (52) Burpees as part of the workout. Nice work!
Quick Mary with 1 minute remaining. H2H and LBC. Name-o-Rama.
The Pax worked hard at The Floater (but not as hard as Rockwell did trying to figure out where to park in Metropolitan Waxhaw!), and I think even @theRealFrack enjoyed it since he got to lift rocks. Not bad when we can get >50 Burpees in over the course of a workout. Thanks for allowing me to lead the Pax and I look forward to future Floater Q’s, and maybe even another Backblast.
Moneyball already wrote up the announcements so I won’t repeat them.
Until next time, fellas!
20 PAX graciously survived a morning Calorie Burn. From the moaning and complaining, the burn was definitely felt by most in the gloom to rid their bodies of the Easter Candy consumed over the weekend. There was no Egg Hunting this morning, but just an attempt of a good ole fashion beat down.
Warm-up – Disclaimer and Introduction.
The Thang – And off we go:
Wrap up and Prayer:
Thank you Old Macdonald for taking us out
Good to see everyone working hard this morning. There were a few back out to enjoy the nice weather finally including Shampoodle, Rockwell, Loafer and Chipotle. Glad you guys could make it work this morning.
Shout out to BottleCap, Hollywood, Ice9, GoodFella and Legalzoom for going all out in the sprints, the competitiveness is contagious. Middle group including Damascus and Foundation were even neck and neck pushing it to the max.
Lastly, Bolt is the man. 2.0 was owning the majority of us sad men this morning. Ice9, you are raising an amazing little chap. Thank you for bringing him along and making us all feel a little insignificant with his work ethic and ridiculous speed.
