20 PAX showed up at Impromptu for a humidity filled session of confusion and work. Confusion right out of the gate as HalfBack thought he was on Q. Maybe there was some confusion on decoding Millennial. We’ve got it ironed out and HalfBack is on Impromptu Q 4 Fridays from last Thursday, but skip a week for the holiday.
Warm-up – Promptly at 5:30:00 (chalk one up for the Q)+1
Mosey to front of the middle school
15 Cherry Pickers
15 Low Slow Squat
10 Mountain Goats – for some reason this new entrant intot the warm-up was not feeling the love (-1)
consists of a 4 exercise “bundle” (Dips, Derkin, Burpee and LBC’s)
Do 10 of the “bundle”, then 15 of the “bundle” and then 20 of the “bundle”
Pax seemed to catch on after some initial mumble chatter – but it faded (+1)
Mosey to back of middle school – stop at tables by Cafe- then jail break to the corner of the school just past the dips benches.
The order would align the partner work. First one in paired with last on in and so on
The AMRAP has been in the closet for the past few months so I thought it was timme to start bringing it back to life. My thought was to bring it back in sections > with today’s attempt hoping to last 20 minutes.
Now to the BearmudaTriangle/Line
Was supposed to be pretty simple – however the football field was off limits so had to change it up on the fly.
This is what ensued:
This is what it should have looked like –
P1 runs to the dip bench area – does 5 Bobby Hurley’s and then 5 Dips – runs back to Triangle
P2 bear crawl to cone 1 – do 1 burpee. bear crawl to cone 2 – 2 Burpees. Bear Crawl to cone 3 – 3 burpess. Each time you finish cone three that counts as a round. The goal was to have a mini competition and count rounds. (Q fail -5)
Mosey to cut out for partner work
150 Crab Cakes
5:15 End (Q+1)
Welcome FNG Davis Mcowsky (sp) – another jersey escapee – comes from Rahway (known for route 1/9 and a prison) – F3 name = Dufresne (silent s fellas) from the Tim Robbins charracter in Shawshank redemption Andy Dufresne.
COTS – August 5th – let Lou know – we’ll meet up and clown car to Uptown
Brooklyn Pizza – 3rd F Monday’s 7:30 or check with ShopDog for the correct time
Bible Read – church offic off of cutherbertson Sunday’s 7am – check with Lou
So stoked to get the chance to confuse/lead a great group of men thorugh the morning gloom. All put in a great effort today and were very adaptable…
Welcome back Brexit!!!! Good to see Wild Turkey making Impromptu stops…
Just a reminder that it’s never too early to start thinking about the Efffffee Awards… keep your favorite Q in charge in mind.. vote early and vote often…
15 men gathered on Friday the 13th for a not so scary workout.
Here’s what went down:
It was a great morning for a workout with perfect temperatures and a great group of guys working hard. It was only appropriate that Clock Merkins were incorporated into this morning’s workout. For whatever reason, halfway through the workout my watch skipped ahead 7 minutes, so I inadvertently called “RECOVER” while doing Dips! Wishful thinking, I guess!
I always enjoy seeing guys push themselves and encouraging their brothers. Old MacDonald was begging for some leg work after our rounds with the rocks, but he pushed on! Akbar mentioned he was getting out frustrations this morning after being up all night with a fussy baby! Dasher showed off his “bad ass” skills with his table height jumps and I believe it was Dough Boy that suggested we change his name to Table Dancer… uh, I mean Table Top!
It was an awesome effort by all and it’s an honor each time I get to lead this group of great men.
Thanks to Dough Boy for taking us out with a prayer!
13 Pax ignored spring break fever for a Co-Q/Double Trouble beat down at Impromptu.
MoneyBall had the first 1/2 and non upper body portion -which aligns with his recovery plan for the fatty shoulder issue.
Warmup that Frack would be proud of – Run over to bus row – SSH/CP/MC and something else
The Thang – Start with lightpole squat (20 at each) on way down – way back (20) jump lunges (need the proper name) – (2 Q points from Posse)
Head to front of HS – 20 toe taps on bench and hot lap X2
Head to parking lot for Star – center to the four light poles with 20 bonnie blairs at each and 25 LBC’s at center each time
some mumble chatter as we had the handoff – “great planning” “so organized” were just some of the compliments going around
Parking slot progressive Merkin/Hurley. Start at Parking Slot #50 move to next and perform merkin/back to #50 and 1 Hurley – continue to 60
Head over to Bench ampitheatre area – 20 Dips in Cadence (-2 Q points from Posse) and introduced the group to the Catalina Wine Mixer – 10. Much debate over the # of steps this mixer entails – was it 5 or 6 or XXX(-2 Q points from Posse again)
Mosey to wall by HS Gym -20 Donkey Kicks (-2 QPoints from Posse) and 10 more CWM’ers
Mosey to front of Middle School – 20 more dips and 25 Peoples Chair Presses – led by Posse and you guessed it (-2 Q Points from Posse)
Mosey to cars for last set of CWM’ers – 10
Hope that everyone enjoyed the Catalina Wine Mixers – I heard rumblings about elbow pads – check with Yeast I heard he is not using his
When all was said and done this Duel Q workout came in at at robust 580 calorie count.
Based on the Posse Q scoring method this Q came in at a very respectable -10. If you need a Q school instructor for the next batch of Virgin’s – just let me know – I’m available
COT/Pastor MadDog led us
Announcements: – Shake -N bake – move- follow Posse on GM,SLACK, Twitter for details. Lou is working on family workout for saturdays. Lawson Vendor fair April 21st? lets assist at the booth for good showing and recruitment. Stub Hub has a critter on the way…..best advice would be to decline any advice from this crew. And Ray is starting a new job which may infringe upon his Meme activity – offer him your support
The Q in charge had no choice but to move back the start time based on all the moaning and groaning.
AMRAP was started in the rain – PAX took to the course:
Damascis – 4.2
Bottlecap – 5.1
Hooch – 4.2
Fusebox – 4.0
Xerox – 3.6
Recalc – 4.2
Possee – 4. Solo lost at 5:30
Maddog dog took us out
family F3 still in the works – BC
all I got
PAX: 13 Strong – BC, Stubhub, Foundation, Dasher, Rockwell, Mad Dog, Spitz, Recalc (R), Finch, FuseBox, Gatorcub (R), MB
Since I was unable to secure enough Yoga Mats, my fountain would have froze, and most importantly I do not know and have never done yoga, the normal old fashioned beat down workout was attempted. March Madness is upon as 13 PAX welcomed me and the balmy 27 degree temps for my VQ. Unfortunately our beloved celebrity Longhorn was unable to join as he was actually working March Madness. Also made the drive lonely. And according to Thursday’s Groupme, you all love numbers so he we go…
Warm-up – Disclaimer and apologizing upfront for any pain inflicted and poor counting skills.
The Thang – And off we go:
Wrap up and Prayer: Quick Thank You for allowing me to lead after being persistently bugged by PAX whose actual job is Sales and then being Voluntold to lead. Announcements, and MD took us out in Prayer.
I first wanted to thank everyone who came today and the opportunity to lead. I was unable to work in a few things but those can be saved for next time. In honor of March Madness, I was hoping to work in the #123 in honor of the number of wins Rick Pitino had to vacate but maybe next time.
It was good to see Spitz back for another round (sorry I missed the first)
Was a good group of guys who stuck together through a rough and cold morning.
The rocks were challenging, Recalc, Dasher, MD, BC, Gatorcub and others chose the motto go big or go home. We all were ready to go home after that exercise segment. Also Mad Dog looked like rolled all over and around the dirty rock, just like a dog would do.
Commitment Saturday at Weddington
Bible Study on Sunday at 7:30 Lawson Mill House – led by BC
Request to assist a family in need in Indian Land with some yard maintenance (unsure the date)
