Choppers in the Distance

Choppers in the Distance

21 Souls (including 2 FNGs) gathered in the shadow of the Regal 22 for Radar’s inaugural Q.  A sign of bad things to come…he hurt us.  And enjoyed it.  (Posted by TR on behalf of Radar).

  • Partner Drag
  • SB4 – 10 Mil. Merkins
  • Partner Drag
  • SB5- 10 Reg
  • Partner Drag
  • SB6-10 Wide
  • (Should have been a partner drag here too, but Rookie Q already knows it all.  Declined sage advice from Veteran Q)

Mosey to COP

  • 10 Push up Jack Burpees on your own
  • 20 Ski abs (cadence)
  • 10 Carolina Dry Docks (Cadence)
  • Repeat

Mosey Back to SBs

  • SB 1: 10- one leg Spartan burpees , right leg up  (Rookie Q ignored Vet Q’s impeccable recommendation to go with (5) 1-legged burpees here.  Waved off Vet Q second attempt at a Q-Jack.)

  • Sprint to SB3
  • 10 Sister Mary Catherines
  • Bear Crawl to SB 4

  • Sprint to SB 5
  • 10 Sis Mary Cath
  • Bear Crawl to SB6
  • 10 squat jumps
  • 10 one leg burpees-(left leg up)
  • Plank for group

Mosey in two columns, Indian run back (the long way) toward the AO (Minus TR who ran back with 50lb bag of sand)

Jail Break last 100 yards


  • 51 Flutters
  • 51 LBCs
  • 36 Mason Twists



  • The naive farm boy from Iowa brought the pain on his first Q.  Premeditated assault and battery with that merkin-jack burpee nonsense.
  • Maul Pax starting to get some looks from the early morning workers at [UNNAMED SHOPPING CENTER].  It didn’t help that Radar dumps a bag of sand behind the building before the workout and takes off.  Stealth tip: take off the ski mask next time.
  • Thought we might have an issue with Plant Watering Guy at the fountain.  Twenty guys roll up and start doing burpees at 0530 usually brings out the shoulder talkers.  He just kept jamming to the tunes in his Beats.  Nary a look.
  • The Utz Chips lady seemed pleased to have the company despite (or because of?) it being during the partner drag portion of the workout.  Friendly people are fun.  Or fun people are friendly.  Either way, be one of those.
  • First Do-Ruck sighting of the season.  That’s just stupid.  Completely.  Pointless, too.  And yet….I can’t look away.
  • Great work by the two FNGs this morning.  Come back.


  • Sign up for Aug 2 GORUCK byt May 21.
  • Sign up for Oct Mud Run by May 25.
  • Be on the lookout for 2nd F opportunities brought to you by 2ndF Q Bugeater, the #HappyNebraskan.
  • F3 Dads coming to Area 51 in June.  Header on Q and will be sending out announcements soon.

Great first Q Radar! Nothing good happens hanging out with your friends in the parking lot in the dark…this stays as true as it was in high school.

Strong lead Radar. You introduced some difficult exercises that I’m still feeling this morning.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
