14 Pax showed up at the Floater today. Bottlecap gives the disclaimer and claims replacement Q, and we see Big 10 heading for the Jeep. After reassurance that BC is not Q today, I take over and lead Pax on mosey to bottom of the hill for warmup.
15 rounds of the hill broken into 1:30 running on hill, 45 seconds of given exercise.
Meet at bottom of hill. 10 count by Foley. 30 x Smurf Jacks. Run 1 final time up hill
Mosey back to start
Open Door Sunday @ 5 Stone Admin office 7:00. Book John Chapter 18
July 4th BBQ at our house (Foundation/Deflated) at 3:00 pm. All welcome – Pig Roast, Bounce House, Sno Cone machine. BYOB
Moneyball on Q at Impromptu
YHC hears alarm go off this morning and then hears a
whisper in ear receives a text that clown car partner Deflated is fartsacking today. This is ok as it gave me extra time to do a quick scout of the area that Hooch brought us by during OT on his last Q that has some tires available to use and quickly update the weinke for today.
So with plan in place it is 5:30 and we have 16 Pax ready to go at Impromptu. Quick mosey around parking lot in search of Jingles, Posse, or other pax that may come in on 2 wheels but seems all that will be in attendance are on time today.
Grab a 5 gallon bucket with your partner and begin mosey to rock pile. Each person grab 1 rock and insert into your bucket. Down concrete path alternating at each light carry bucket overhead and complete 10 merkins. Finish at the shed. Complete some Mary while waiting for the 6.
With your partner grab some wall for people’s chair. P1 remove a rock from the bucket and complete 20 x Overhead Presses. P2 hold the bucket with single rock in at eye level. Flapjack and complete 3 rounds each.
Mosey while alternating carrying the bucket down to football practice field. Put buckets down and team up into group of 4’s. 3 groups find a tire and 4th group each person grab two buckets
Round 1: Groups on tires do partner tire flips back and forth. Group with buckets go to end of concrete path with bucket carries and back. Rotate through until each has chance to complete bucket carry.
Round 2: First group on tire do toe taps, 2nd group do box jumps, 3rd group do tire flips, 4th group bucket carry. Rotate through until each has chance to complete bucket carry
Regroup with your partner and bucket of rocks and mosey back to parking lot. At top of parking lot remove 1 rock from bucket. P1 do squats while holding fence. P2 use rock and complete 20 halos
while wathcing partner twerk. Flapjack and complete 3 rounds.
Mosey back with bucket of rocks. Shed a single rock at rock pile by shed, and make a few stops along the way to gather the six. Return final rock to pile and head back to COT.
25 Pax (including 2 FNG’s) came out for the post Lawson Craft Fair blitz. With last night’s weather report showing rain in the future YHC was all set to use the Recalc Sandwich Board for a weinke. Instead rain held off, and YHC had to determine a new weinke on the spot. So off we went
You get the picture went until we reached the football stadium. (Gave me some time to think up a weinke)
Completed short extension of warmup including
Collect the 6 and grab some room along the fence
Quick 10 count and mosey up to wooden benches
At benches do 2 rounds of:
Do 2 more rounds of
Mosey to Stair Case for 2 rounds of Calf Raises – 5/stair rotating between feet forward, toes in, toes out and jog around to bottom. (Again done because Moneyball not in attendance)
Mosey back to start
7 Pax from East & West Union County came together at Conviction for a little work around the campus.
Begin with Merkin Suicides around parking lot using the light posts as markers. As PAX goes to next light add 5 additional merkins and always perform 10 x LBC at start.
Next have all Pax grab rope with two handles on it and try to jump over the rope after it swings over your head. Side Note: Learned that neither East nor Western Union County boys are coordinated enough to handle, so called audible after 3 rounds
Audible consisted of going to playground and using the swings. Partner up with P1 running to school door in corridor while P2 does exercises on swing and then flapjack
After Pax completed all rounds had a quick 10 count and then moseyed over to side of school.
Using the wall Pax alternated Jack Webb style (4:1 ratio) between people chair/air presses & Mike Tysons. Completed 8 rounds total
Mosey back to start and finish with Mary called out by the Pax
Speed for Need training was at 7pm 4/12, continue to look for other opportunities and be sure to participate in upcoming event as it is truly a great thing.
27 Pax came out to Flash for a
Ole McDonald Doc McStuffin’s lead Q. With a little confusion on GroupMe in regards to who was going to be Q, we quickly moved forward and some how ended up filling out the Q schedule for all surrounding AO’s in matter of minutes and landed on Doc as our Q. Below is my recollection of the book read by Doc including necessary explanations/defintions for each movement provided by Doc.
Introduction: Mosey and Shoulder Tap Merkins
Chapter 1: Mosey around front parking lot while performing 10 x hand release merkins each light
Chapter 2: Venture to hill on side of school and perform zig zag run up down around trees with burpees at bottom
Chapter 3: Mosey to Benches in front of school complete 6 count merkins while using hands to transition from ground to bench
Chapter 4: Repeat 6 count exercise but perform with derkins and using feet to transition from ground to bench
Chapter 5: Jack Webb or most outlandish welcome to Cuthberston Field Trip Circle
Note: If recently attended Q School, please disregard as this is not proper form for Backblast writing please refer to Manual for proper instructions.
12 men gathered this morning at Impromptu in balmy 66-degree heat! After giving considerable thought (approximately 30 seconds) about what to title this workout I decided to name it “Tiny, Heart Shaped Rock”. More on that later…
Here’s what went down:
I always enjoy working out with such a great group of guys. And it seems every workout always ends up with some sort of humorous occurrence. That leads me back to the LIFTING rocks… Making the decision to rotate after each set with the rocks proved to expose some suspect LIFTING rock choices. The rocks ranged in size from what felt like nearly 50 lbs. down to… well… we’ll just say light weight. And one rock in question was literally shaped like a heart! Not a big heart. Not a heavy heart. Just a tiny, light weight, heart shaped rock. Is anyone going to claim responsibility for this?? I think Bottle Cap put it in his pocket and took it home after the workout!
In all seriousness, great job by the PAX. Dasher continues to impress with his speed. Dough Boy and I became even closer as Wheel Barrel partners. Old MacDonald did us all a favor by suggesting we avoid his “cross-wind” during the rock curls. Foundation doesn’t seem to miss too many workouts. Xerox always brings good energy. And, it was good to meet Rose… welcome to the group!
Lastly, a special welcome to our FNG Anthony who is now known as Spam! He was a Civil Engineer in the Air Force which apparently can be referred to as “Prime Beef”. Anthony was educating us on Air Force nicknames, and I think he was hoping he could name himself “Beef”. He quickly learned it doesn’t work like that and is now known as Spam. Welcome, Spam!
Thanks to Bottle Cap for taking us out with a prayer!
