And We’re Off

The newest Monday morning workout in Western UC, also known as Ignition, made its debut at Cuthbertson Middle School. Born out of a desire from some of the PAX to get a bit more running in (and the ridiculously large numbers the ever-so-popular Flash has been pulling in lately), 9 made the decision to join YHC at 5:15 to break in and explore some new areas.

THANG:

Mosey approx. .8 miles out of the middle school and into the Lawson subdivision model home parking lot. Watch out for cars.

Short warmup consisting of merkins and low slow squats. We then proceeded to run up and down, back and forth through the many cul-de-sacs and streets the subdivision had to offer. We sprinted and moseyed when needed.  We did burpees, jump squats, diamond merkins, all other types of merkins, mary when not picking up the 6.

Then we ran back to meet up with Flash for COT. In the end, we totaled anywhere from 5.0-5.4 miles and enough exercises to satisfy the “non-runners”

MOLESKIN:

The plan for Ignition is simple. Keep the heart rate up while engaging in some good ol’ fashioned running mixed in with various exercises. YHC and site Q Halfback want to thank all those who came out to test themselves and help us introduce this workout to the PAX of Western UC .  The AO came together pretty quickly so it was encouraging to have 9 at launch.  I believe those that attended would say that they pushed themselves pretty hard today.  Most even said that they would return.

A little something about the PAX because the backblast is too short:

Bottlecap-dude just had hernia surgery a couple of weeks ago and out running around.  Or did he?  I believe only Moneyball asked to see proof of the incision site.  Gross

speaking of Moneyball-Definitely faster than he used to be, however I think he forgot the workout is 60 minutes, not 45. Where did he go?

Stub Hub-Officially a runner now per his leading of Pursuit.   But does he sandbag the first part of his workouts to socialize?

MadDog-Vowed never to come back.  Or did he?

Dasher-Running with merkins are a Dasher special.   Already signing up to Q. Will he find 10 foot walls for us to jump over?

Rubbermaid-so dialed in, when he arrived he left his 2.0 in the car with the windows rolled up. Says Ignition also fixed his fogged up eyeglass problem.

Cha Ching-The mumblechatter king. I’m sure he said this was his favorite workout he has ever been to? Pretty sure at least.

Halfback-Finally realized in the last month that 40 year olds shouldn’t be faster than him and has corrected that problem.

Thanks again.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Ignition rolls out again next week, Halfback on Q weather permitting

 

Impromptu AMRAP: The Return

We welcomed back the return of Impromptu’s Monthly AMRAP challenge after a long summer hiatus.  A new but similar designed course awaited the PAX, and judging by the 24 PAX that showed up, they were eager to test themselves and take their shot at the best of what Cuthbertson MS has to offer.  After a quick lap around the course to explain the exercises, off we went.

The Thang:

AMRAP challenge. Consists of a .5 mile lap with 7 exercise stations along the route. 30 minutes to complete as many laps as possible. Stations included in the chart.  20 of each exercise (burpees were based on the # of laps completed). Results are included to track monthly progress.  Example: 4.2 means  4 laps, plus completion of Bear Crawl

Am I Allowed to Break the Rules?…..Nope

A rather large crowd joined me today at The Floater. 25 PAX in total. Hadn’t been out since my last Q months ago and the crowd has definitely increased in numbers since that time.

Pull up with 2 minutes to spare, crew seems ready, weigh ins completed and away we went.

Warm Up:

Mosey the long way over to a church parking lot.

Plank-then all IC: MC x 10, Merkins x 9, Peter Parker x 10, Plank Jacks x 10, Merkins x 11

The Thang:

Run back close to where we came; 8 CDD at every street (32); dips 25 IC while we wait for the 6

Then IC: dips x8, Step Ups x10, Derkins x12, Step ups x10

Run to Brevard St. at S. Providence School; couple more 8x CDD; while we wait plank series, 6 inches, etc; 6 inch plank jacks IC x 10

Down Brevard to first intersection, 8 HR Merkins, 8 Jump Squats, back to start; Then up Brevard to next intersection, repeat series; Then down Brevard to Waxhaw maintenance dept; HR Merkins x 16, Jump squats x16; up to Hwy 75; repeat;  Mary, squats, etc waiting for the 6

Mosey to Waxhaw Womens Club (WWC) parking lot-Dolly x 10 IC , American Hammer x 10 IC–

Train alert-10 Burpees in 1 minute increments until train passed; Completed at least 50 in total, lost count as I was going deaf

Mosey back to start-Freddy Mercury IC x20; Merkins IC x 10; LBC  IC x 20; Merkins IC x 10

Moleskin:

We began to hear the train whistle midway through the workout. Everyone, including YHC, was hoping that it would just go away. At the WWC, that distinct sound had become much louder. Apparently there is a rule here where if the train comes by, you complete burpees until it passes (since the AO is literally 50 feet from the tracks).  I looked around and noticed many sad faces so for the PAX sake and being the nice guy that I am, I stared at one of the site Q’s Moneyball and asked if I was allowed to break the rules and not do the burpees. Rather the awesome little fun exercise I had planned which did not include them.  He emphatically said No.  So we did burpees while the longest train ever to come through Waxhaw passed.   Fantastic.  See I am a rule follower, although I saw a lot of refuseniks out there during this portion of the workout.  Blame the site Q’s.

Thanks for the invite,  Good to see some new faces around.  Keep coming out, you’ll get faster and stronger.   Familiar faces out front leading the PAX, you know who you are.

And…rumor has it that one of the PAX was wearing a thong. A very thorough, meme filled, and time consuming investigation is currently underway (for clarification of course).

COT/Announcements:

Big 10 on Q tomorrow-wear college colors

Rubbermaid turned 50 today (hid it until COT). Recalculating announced that he was 49 and not one PAX noticed.

Moleskin:

Good work today by the Pax.  Got a little stretched out at times so YHC didn’t really get a chance to see or hear what was truly going on but we started and ended with the same number so that works for me.  Everyone was working hard though as evidenced by the heavy breathing.

And since I didn’t answer the question this morning as to whether a lifting or running rock was needed, to YHC a rock is a rock. We pick the rock, then figure out what the plans are next.   You lift it as much as you can, you run with it as fast as you can.   It doesn’t matter how fast you are or how may reps you complete.  You stop when you need to (or modify if proper disclaimer was provided).  And if necessary, your brothers will come along side of you to help, which is what F3 is all about.

As to the naming of FNG Fumble (Jeff), he was wearing a Jets Ladainian Tomlinson jersey circa 2011, long past his prime.  Butt Fumble was immediately called out, much to the dismay of F3 Corporate.  After not coming up a better name, it was shortened to Fumble to make sure would join us again.  But he will always be Butt Fumble to us.

Thankful to have the ability to be working out and having fun with this group of guys.

Once again, beautiful morning, make sure to enjoy the day. David said it best:   “The heavens declare the glory of God. The skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Psalm 19:1

Gonna Make You Sweat

Ready to take on the week, 21 brave men decided to take a little stroll through the best AO on Cuthbertson Rd. NW from the fine Lawson community (tied for first).  Sadly for them, someone left the gate to the track open. No FNG’s and no Jingles so off we went at 5:30.

Warm Up:

*To spot near track. Plank, then MC x20 IC, Plank Jacks x20 IC, Tempo Merkins x15 IC, IW x 15 IC, 5 burpees OYO

Thang:

*To track, squats IC while we wait, then at every corner around, 10 Merkins , then peoples chair w/ 50 overhead presses

Next at every corner 10 jump squats, run backwards on straightaway, peoples chair w/ 50 jabs

*To refreshment area, Pair up, P1 runs down steps and back up, P2 does derkins, 150 total, Mary while we wait LBC’s, Dollies both 25 IC

*To HS side entrance; 6 count burpees x10, then 5 burpees OYO.       P1 runs to curb and back, P2 donkey kicks, total 150-200.

*To Front of Middle school-Jump squats while we wait, then P1 runs to other side of lot and back, P2 does dips,, total 200

Plank work, various regular and elbow planks

*To Cars, 10 Burpees OYO to end

Moleskin:

Sweaty mess out there again.  YHC was literally dripping 5 minutes in, which may have been from the collared shirt that for some reason nobody else was wearing.    A bunch of regulars working hard and likely running more than they wanted to.   There may have been a little (or a lot) mumblechatter when it came to a few of the exercises but YHC has learned to tune that stuff out.  Refuse, and we’ll just keep going.   The louder it is, the longer the exercise lasts.   Thanks to Foundation and Gatorcub for the invite today.    Thanks to this group of men and the motivation they bring to go out and get in a workout before most are awake.    Always a fun time no matter how bad it hurts.

Shuffling Through the Hills of The Haw

The rain held off so 9 PAX joined me to run around the streets of Downtown Waxhaw and lay down some serious sweat puddles.

Warm up: Mosey to Center Grove Freewill Baptist Church on Jackson Street.  SSH x20 IC, Peter Parker x10 IC, Mountain Climber x15 IC , Plank Jack x20 IC, 30 second elbow plank hold, Mountain Climber x10 IC

Repeat-this time with Jump Squats-total 84

Once completed, Plank work, Mary which consisted of LBCs, Heels to Heaven, Dolly, all x20 IC

 

Mosey across tracks-stop in parking lot where Heritage restaurant is-Merkins x5 IC, Wide Arm Merkins x5 IC, Stagger Merkins each arm forward x5 IC, diamond Merkins x5 IC

 

To S. Providence Street near road closed signs-Broad Jump burpees to every 2nd rock, Lunge walk every 2nd rock-Repeat until rocks ended-I believe each was completed 5 times

5 Squats IC, 10 Monkey Humpers IC, 15 Mary Catherines IC, 4 Monkey Humpers (car interrupted us as we were in the middle on the street)

Mosey towards Keith Jong Hill (otherwise known as Church Street)-stop at HMS Commercial HVAC lot-Plank Work, various 6 inches, 6 inch Plank Jacks x10 IC

To Bottom of the hill-Up to 1st cone and complete Carolina Dry Docks x10, then back to start

Next sequence-10 CDD, 20 squats, at third stop 30 LBCs, back to start

Final sequence-10 CDD, 20 squats, 20 LBCs, 40 plank jacks at Village Laundromat

Back to cars-Flutters x20 IC before time called

Moleskin:

YHC went on a little reconnaissance mission prior to the start and was pleased that almost every side street doubled as a nice sized hill.  We didn’t run up all of them of course but there are many more to use at a later date for the faithful Floater regulars and for when I get another invite to Q.  Great group of guys as always.  It was quite a soaker out there due to the humidity but that didn’t stop the PAX from working hard.

Bottlecap-best fashion attire of the group. However couldn’t see due to fake glasses.      Moneyball-started a “grass sucks” chant during warm up.   Posse-happy that the form/wording police did not show today, was ready for payback   Recalculating-verified that his calorie watch is a sham #fakenews    Shake-N-Bake-new Waxhaw resident confirmed 8/10 locals are gluten free and can’t use his product on their chicken. #sad   Button-wondered aloud why there were two buttons at the workout, thought he had the button market cornered    Doughboy-Fortnite kill record is 3 🙁   His 2.0’s is 35     Fuse Box -despite PAX thoughts, stated that Schroeder is his favorite Peanuts character    Easy Button-glad he wasn’t named Hard Button #dirty

To recap:  The pace was fast. The six was never too far (unless that unnamed person was purposely slowing down).   Did not come close to my pre-workout threat of 4 miles.  No calorie records were broken today. No partner work.  Wearing an 100% cotton shirt was a bad idea.  Monkey Humpers in front on someone’s home did not get the cops called on us.  And as usual no train interruptions. Thanks again.

Cerberus…So Fancy, You Already Know

20 PAX in attendance for a warm and sweat filled morning with the wonderful sounds of mumblechatter.  5:30 came, off we went. No FNG’s but a lazy disclaimer was still provided.  PAX coming in on two wheels, hurry up cause we got places to go and no time to waste.

Warm Up:

Mosey to the back around Whole Foods and the $$Bootcamp$$ folks for some warm up:  All IC: SSH x15, Imperial Squakers x12, Mountain climbers x15, Merkins x15, Plank Jacks x15.

Mosey to Parking Deck.

The Thang:

–Parking Deck–

Merkins x15, up ramp running backwards, then plank jacks x15. Take stairs down to start, begin sequence again up 2 ramps with plank jacks x15 at top of every ramp and merkins x15 to begin, back down, etc to top of deck.

Plank work while we wait, various 6 inches, arm high work, topped off with 6 inch plank jacks IC x15

–Intermission–

Mosey south to the artificial grass area. Grab some half wall.  Completed Derkins IC x20, Dips IC x20, then 20 jump/step ups. Then over to the street in between the overpriced and fancy boutique stores.

–Fancy Street–

8 light poles from start to end, jump squats to next light pole, 10 mountain climbers, run to next, 10 lbcs, all the way to end.   Mary until 6, Heels to heaven IC x20. Back to parking deck

–Partner Stair Work–

Partner up, as a team complete 200 donkey kicks, 100 mike Tysons, P1 runs up to top of staircase and back down while P2 does exercise.   Alf led the mary, LBC’s and Flutters IC x20. Back to fancy street.

–Fancy Street, part 2–

Bear crawl to light pole, then run to next, complete sequence to end.   Mary?

Just a couple of minutes left at this point.  Over to lot, suicides at each line and back to end.  Bratwurst led some American Hammers IC x30 to end the workout.

 

Moleskin:

So it turns out YHC really sucks at giving out directions.   When my weinke was drawn up and memorized, I was good, no questions needed to be asked.   Yet today, the questions and many confused faces started rather early.    Look, just run up the dang ramp and figure it out  I’ll work on this for next time.       However, once we got going, it was all work.  Transporter was promised a lighter running day so the goal was to keep it shorter in distance than YHC usually does, at the same time keeping that heart rate up.  Plan achieved.   The PAX pushed themselves and never slowed down, I’m sure they were feeling it because I know I was.

Thanks for the invite.   It is always a welcome change to meet and work out with the PAX from other regions.   Great guys as expected.

Announcements:

FNG day at Cerberus next week, May 11 at 5:30. Bring a FNG or else…

June 8th-  Pool Party  8-10 PM Lawson Pool Waxhaw- Cost $40 to raise funds for Sandbox (promise no additional Shake downs)

Thanks Header for the prayer.

All Around the Watchtower

13 PAX took a leap of faith and made it out to Watchtower, not knowing who would actually be the Q.  I had made a deal with Posse yesterday to Q if he promised me no rain.  He pulled out his phone, apparently pretended to look at an app, and assured me no rain.  So of course there was rain.  However it did stop before start time but it was wet enough to where I scraped all plans to use any rocks or pass over any grass.  The PAX were appreciative. I even think I got a standing ovation when they learned I was the Q.   I think.   At least they were standing.  That’s how I remembered it anyway.

WARM UP:

Mosey to Snack Bar in front of track, go slow over the frozen bridge-Imperial Squakers IC x15

THE THANG:

Mosey to elementary school dropoff spot: Elbow planks while we wait.  Elbow Peter Parker x15. Various other stuff.  Did wall sits

Mosey to Track area-Plank work, plus elbow plank jacks IC x20

Mosey back to Snack Bar-Partner work

Diamond Merkins IC x 6-**Attempted but the PAX weren’t interested

Mosey on back to cars right on time.

MOLESKIN:

We tracked almost 2 miles today, not a ton but we were constantly moving with a very fast Mosey throughout. It’s always good to make it to the old Watchtower site for some new terrain.  I was tempted at some point with the track being open but I ran out of time so we’ll save that for another day.  The goal was to keep any rest to a minimum and I think that was achieved.  Once again, a great group of guys today and some real solid work was put in.   Thanks to all who came out.

3rd AMRAPs the Charm

16 PAX were not afraid and showed up for Impromptu’s once a month AMRAP special, which has been hailed as the best AMRAP course ever assembled on the southwest side of Cuthbertson Middle School.     This is the third event on the new course after the old course was disbanded after an impressive 7 month run.

Rather unsurprisingly, it was really cold again. Also, the middle school leadership team must be aware of this once a month event as for the third month running, they closed down the school and allowed us to avoid the diesel exhaust fumes from the 20 buses that need a hour to warm up.

WARMUP:

Run through AMRAP course to allow PAX to get the lay of the land. Along the way, completed SSH x10, Mountain Climbers X10, Merkins x10, Squats x10 and Burpees x 5.

THE THANG:  7 stations around a 1/2 mile circle.  As Many Reps (Laps) As Possible in 30 minutes:

  1. Derkins x 20
  2. Dips x 20
  3. Curl to Press x 20
  4. Bear Crawl x 30 yards
  5. Donkey Kicks x 20
  6. Bunny Hops x length of bball court
  7. Burpees x # of laps completed

Great job by all today.  Many new faces as there were 8 new PAX to the course and all set PR’s.  Actually, everyone broke their previous records except for me as I’m pretty sure I peaked 6 months ago.  Really cool to see the improvements being made. Not a lot of mumblechatter today, just hard work.    Until next time.

Stone Cold Crazy

10 brave souls joined me on this ridiculously cold morning. I am not sure why. Maybe they just enjoy the feeling of intense pain in their fingers , face and lungs.   Whatever the reason, they showed up to work hard so that’s what we ended up doing.

Warm Up:

Mosey to the front of the high school, peel back to pick up Jingles along the way. Disclaimer provided

Moleskin:

The goal was to keep the PAX moving without much time to contemplate how cold they actually were.  I believe that was achieved.   Still felt as though we were running in slow motion (maybe it was just me).  Not much in the way of mumblechatter as it was just too cold to talk much in the 9 degree weather while trying to catch our breaths.   However, when I attempted to call out one last set up Derkins at the end of the workout, Foundation was quick to point out that we were short on time and needed to head back, saying something about having to get to work.    At the time I believed him so we headed back without completing the Derkins.  Was I tricked?  Did he really go to work today, or even work for that matter?  Maybe I need to go hang out in Lawson for some intel.

Ackbar rolling in looking like Deflated today, with a “Hey, this is Ackbar”. Dude, we knew it was you. #funny.  Not even sure I remember what Deflated actually looks like without the faceguard he’s been wearing since October.  Recalculating still rocking the shorts (although I think I did see him cold at one point, pulling a Doc and trying to warm up his fingers).    Foundation is getting faster by the day, Tuck is likely in the process of recruiting him to run somewhere.  Jingles getting a little prep work in before Joe Davis tomorrow.   Great Pumpkin worked hard today, never stopped.  Gator Cub regretted his decision to show up from minute #1, but kept trucking anyway.  At the rate they’re posting, Mad Dog and Halfback will be leaving everyone in the dust soon. I definitely see a Spartan Beast in their future.  Doughboy is happy now that basketball is in full swing so he can finally start wearing his Kentucky gear again.
