Twenty Pax were crazy enough to show up for me trying to find a way to make them anguish in pain or simply wish that they had fart-sacked like Deflated. As a Clydesdale, most people have come to expect less running when you see a Q who weighs in at 265 lbs. However, it is more fun to surprise the pack and offer a Dasher Q in a Clydesdale package
Let’s Mosey: WThe PAX headed down the path, stopping at every light for a different exercise, starting with 20 side straddle hops, Merkins, Plank Jacks, Potato Pickers, Moroccan Night clubs, Low Slow Squats, and finishing with everyone’s favorite, Mike Tysons. We mosied up to the circle near the high school to plank while the six arrived. They, unfortunately, got to run more as we jogged to the high school parking lot. The PAX was introduced to the Triple T Nickel which consisted of 5 squats at the bottom, run out to the T and perform 5 t-Merkins, and run to the top of the hill for 5 Full Situps. Repeat the process 5 times and you have 2 miles and a lot of complaints. Once we finished at the bottom, Run Flat was appreciative of having to Mosey back to the top of the hill. After a brief 10 count, we did 10 squatting jabs at one light and alternated to a burpee at the other light all the way back to the middle school. Finally, we grabbed some bench for 25 dips, ran a lap, and did 25 more dips. We finished with a plank for the last 60 seconds.
COT: We graduated a few new Gazelles into the group after today’s adventure in running. Great workout and thanks for the patience on the backblast.

let’s Mosey: First, we ran an easy mosey to Chick-fil-a we did 21 side straddle hops, imperial walkers, and potato pickers. After we smelled the beautiful Chick-fil-a air, we moseyed to Target where we did four corners TWO Times 1st corner was 10 merkins, 2nd corner was 10 squats, 3rd corner was 10 burpees, and the 4th corner was 20 LBC’s. After we were done with Target we ran behind Brooklyn Pizza and got into partners while one person was on the ground doing 100 Heels To Heaven the other dude was running to the dumpsters. ( I had to modify from the dumpsters, that was a bad idea). Next, we ran back to Target and did the Circle of Death were one dude called out an exercise to do while he was running 2 times around the circle. After that, we ran to the neighborhood and did a run down the hill and then bear crawl back up the hill. After that, we ran to Petsmart where we did 30 jabbs, 30-foot touches, and then we ran to the middle of Petsmart were I made Damascus do 40 pushups in a vest while we ran in a circle then we went to the middle and went around in a circle 1 and while we were doing squats one person was going into the middle and do 2 burpees and then run back out. We ended with a run back to the start.
The days have been long with a new job so sometimes you get a back blast written at the last moment that shares the pain and torment that was dealt out for the day. This morning, 11 people came to Chiseled to get more cut and build some muscle. What most didn’t realize is that my substi-Q for Recalculating was primarily focused on the 45 pound buckets of concrete meant to cause as much fatigue as possible.
Run to the entrance of Five Stones Church and back to get the legs warm. Do 25 side straddle hops to loosen up. Stretch the arms across each side because we are going to wear them out. Perform 25 Merkins to warm up the chest. Overhead stretch to finish out loosening up the arms.
Exercise #1- Bucket Brigade Line up in a single line, hold a squat while passing the bucket down the line and the last person run it up to the front. Repeat until everyone has run the bucket 3 times and find a way to stretch out the legs.
Exercise #2- Partner Up and choose a bucket. One partner performs the exercise with a 45 pound bucket while the other runs to the end of the parking lot. Complete two rounds per person for each exercise. The series consisted of curls, squats, shoulder press, alternating elevated merkins, and bucket swings. The group did 5 burpees between each exercise and filled the time waiting for the six doing Mary.
Everyone did a great job hanging in for the workout. What I can say is that we did a chiseled workout at Chiseled, not some portable version of another Site Q. Zinfandel was kind enough to remind me that Watchtower was worse last Tuesday so I will have to find a new threshold of pain. I was thoroughly worn by the end of the workout and had to make a trip to the Chiropractor. Welcome @Joe Selitto – Snooki to the PAX. Great opportunity to start with the group.
Twas the morning before Christmas,
when all through the house
An F3 Q was stirring, as PAX began to rouse
The cones were set out by the lights with care
In hopes that buckets of concrete will get them there
Jingles was nestled all snug in his bed
While visions of warmth danced in his head
And Fusebox in his ‘kerchief, and Breadbowl in his cap
The Q for the day yelled, get out of your sack
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
I sprang from the bed to gather all that matters
Away to the window I flew like a flash (well a Clydesdale type flash)
Tore open the door and drop some boys at the pond
The full moon Gave the lustre of mid-day on the path
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear
But 39 PAX ready to go, no matter rain nor snow
With Doughboy on Q, so lively and quick-ish
I knew in a moment it must be 6:30
More rapid than gazelles his coursers they came
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!
“Now Dasher! now, Doughboy! now, Popeye and Zinfandel!
On, Catnip! On, Carebear! on, on Das Boot and Bottlecap!
To the back of the school! to the top of the path!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”
As dry heaves that before the wild gloves fly
When they meet with obstacles, praying to the sky
So up to the circle the coursers they flew
With the sleigh full of weights, and Shop Dawg too
And then, in a twinkling, I heard toward the end
The Santa and Santa of each huff and puff
As I drew in my head, and was turning around
We started the final mosey in leaps and bounds
We sprang to the front of the school, to the PAX gave a whistle
And away they all drove to McD’s for Coffeeteria
But I heard everyone exclaim, as we drove out of sight
“Recover, Happy Christmas, and to all a good-night!”
We started with a warmup run to Christmas in Hollis to the back of the school to the shouts of get a bigger speaker for Christmas
The PAX completed a little over 4 miles trying to complete the 12 days of Christmas and a quick tour of the campus to hear Santa Claus
17 PAX had no idea what they were getting into at Chiseled this morning. I always find it fun to think of new ways to stretch ourselves as a PAX. With Zinfandel holding the record of least used gear in a gear workout, I thought I would go the other direction with the introduction of 40lb buckets full of concrete. According to Deadwood, the back of my truck was dragging from all the extra weight that was about to be hauled around Five Stones Church for the shear enjoyment of a great workout.
Take a lap to the front Entrance of the Church and all the way back to the start to ensure we were nice and warm on a cold morning
At the end of the workout, the buckets became Phuckets with 2.5 miles of running and plenty of muscle work with 40 lbs of concrete. There was substantial whining about the required lifting and the finger pain from those who usually lift a wine glass. Fortunately, I have stored the buckets at the Chiseled site for anyone who wishes to add the weight to future workouts.
19 Pax started the day with a bear crawl in the Target parking lot with a slalom between the LARGE RED BALLS ! No one thought I was going to show, but I pulled a Jingles by sneaking in at the 2 minute mark! Everyone was ready and rearing to go!
