We have Intel!

We have Intel!

21 men of widely varying ages braved the relatively tropical 27 degree weather to jump start their Super Bowl weekend readiness.  The support and positive mojo of the PAX helped propel the novice Q with newfound confidence to lead in the regular rotation.

The Thang:

Intel on Q

Random roaming throughout the vast parking lot: Forward, backward, karaoke, lunge walks

Mosey to soccer field for COP….

SSH x 30
IW x 30
Merkins x 25
Slow Squat x 25
(maybe some other stuff)

Mosey to end of soccer field…

  • Burpees x 5, 75 yd sprint, Burpees x 5, LBC’s X 10, return sprint, plank
  • Carolina Dry Docks x 10, sprint, CDDs x 10, Flutter x 20, sprint, plank
  • Merkins x 15, sprint, Merkins x 15, Russian Twists x 30, sprint, plank
  • WA Merkin x 10, sprint, WA Merkin x 10, LS Squat x 20, 75 yd LW, plank, 6 inches, recover

Mosey to outhouse…

  • Peoples chair with leg raising nonsense, decline Peter Parker x 15
  • Repeat People’s chair sequence, plank

Smooth handoff to Hannibal

Back to the hill by the soccer field for some 11s (burpees at top, jump squats at bottom)

Mosey to baseball diamond for a little early spring training.  Partner up.  Partner 1 goes to 2nd base and Partner 2 goes to Home Plate.

  • Round 1:  Bear crawl from Home to 1st and 2nd to 3rd; Crabwalk from 1st to 2nd and 3rd to home.  20 CDDs at 1st & 3rd; 20 Sister Mary Catherine’s at 2nd & Home
  • Round 2:  Lunge walk from Home to 1st and 2nd to 3rd; Reverse lunge walk from 1st to 2nd and 3rd to Home; 20 Wide-arm Merchins at 1st & 3rd; 20 squats at 2nd & Home

Partner Chase back home: Partner 1 runs backwards and Partner 2 does 20 merchins and then runs to catch Partner 1.  When caught, flapjack.

Finished with Mary (in cadence):

  • LBCs x 50
  • Low, (not so) slow flutter x 20
  • Dollies x 20

The Moleskin:

The PAX endured the Gloom well this morning and great effort was put out by all.  Welcome to our FNG Eviction – we hope you’ll join us again!  Tadpole added an unplanned level of difficulty for 3 poor downwind souls with a crop dusting outburst during our baseball diamond segment.  We are pleased to inform that no permanent damage was reported.  Runstopper piloted his private jet back from an Asian trip earlier in the week; as usual, there was no evidence of jet lag (with the exception of a huge yawn on the baseball diamond – brother are you tired or bored?).  Plenty of grumbling was overheard by the Qs on the 11s, and the LBCs in cadence x50 were not a crowd favorite.  However all endured, and while they may feel it later today, will be better because of it.  It was a pleasure to serve you today.


  • Special birthday workout at the Rock to be Q’d by Iron Horse himself NEXT Saturday (2/8)
  • BRR signups and training in full effect. See Baracus.
  • Wednesday/Thursday tutoring needs more men.  Please see website for details.
  • Canned food donations will be collected by Salt Lick at the Arboretum HT TODAY!

Sorry to have missed Intel’s maiden voyage as Q. Sounds like pain was well dispensed.
Good to have an FNG in the mix, too. Keep EH’ing folks fellas.

Great workout guys. Intel wasted no time getting the heart rate up during his circuitous warmup run. He and Hannibal kept it coming with lots of running and hills. Good stuff.

I don’t think my form was very good on the “merchins”.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
