Base Camp for the new PAX and Q’s

Base Camp for the new PAX and Q’s

A day for the new Q’s, High Tide and Passport (in that respective order) led the PAX today on a solid workout.  Great first Q’s by both, the usual fun with numbers was had and the PAX left speechless (or was that out of breath, hard to tell, the final call for 10 burpees on your own was the final crowd pleaser no doubt but I don’t want to give to much away) so without further adieu:

The Thang:


(HighTide on Q)

Jog to football field for COP:


(in cadence)

15  Side Straddle Hop

15  Imperial Walker

Center field – 15 Merkins

Right field – 10 Burpees

Incline Merkins on the railing

Supine Pullups on the railing


(Passport on Q)

6 MoM


Heels to Heaven



Freddie Mercury

 Final call for….wait for it….

10 burpees on your own




Have to say that the PAX were supportive of the new Q’s, carrying on when High Tide lost count and then stopped counting and then got back together with the counting only to then halt (O2 regneration perhaps?).  Great creativity on the sled/anchor combo, YHC’s leg’s were pretty smoked that’s for sure.  Robin Hood looking stronger as the weeks go on, very noticable!  Also serious effort noted on the sled/anchor by Snail Mail, while not fast he undoubtedbly was pushing and pulling with the best of them.  T claps to Runstopper for keeping up with YHC on the backwards run, I’ll get you next time… Glad YHC wasn’t K-9’s partner, yikes that guy can really go on the leg strength exercises.
