A little over 3 months after my first post at an extremely cold 16 degree Centurion, YHC finally took the plunge and Q’ed my first workout.
I originally planned a pretty easy, generic workout to ease myself into being a Q. However, at the COT after Swift/Stonehenge on Tuesday morning Frehley’s Comet was “Poking the Bear.” So later that morning I wrote a workout that I hoped would not disappoint.
The goal this morning was to do wide variety of exercises with low counts (10-20) with very little breaks in between.
YHC was SMOKED after 45 minutes. Based on the moans and groans from the PAX, I believe everyone got their money’s worth. I actually had a hard time calling cadence at the end and waited for the heckling to begin.
It was truly a pleasure leading such a great group of men this morning. I strongly encourage everyone that hasn’t Q’ed a workout to step up.
Special shout out to Mic Check. Thanks for the virgin Q mentoring Brother!
Lastly, keep Frehley’s co-worker in your payers. His/her son was recently injured in an accident.

I am kicking myself for not posting. Looks like a good workout. I hate when work gets in the way of a good old fashioned beatdown.

Next time!

Great workout MT! You led with diabolic precision and authority -with sprinkling of great new exercises (ie. spider lunges).Your famous wax figures would be proud….
Classic Philmont – he spent the last half of the workout walking up and down the hill with his full backpack (even taking his turn with the Beast Bag). He’s a man on a mission…..

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
