Jousting with Partners

In the spirit of friends don’t let friends pre-kettlebell alone YHC made the mistake of showing up early (although not as early as Stone Cold) to make sure Stone Cold didn’t kettle bell alone.  This turns out to be a bad idea when YHC is also on Q.

Thankfully at the last minute an even numbered pax showed up and the 8 went off into the gloom to:

Circle up in the parking lot for COP:

SSH x 30

Merkins x 15

IW x 20

Movement prep stretch

Mountain Climber x 20

Low Slow Squat x 20

Mosey to the picnic benches

Step ups x 10 each leg

Elevated dry docks x 10

Plank it up AND… repeato except 8 step ups per leg

Mosey to the playground equipment, split into two groups of two sets of partners

Group 1 does partner AMRAP pull ups + 2, flapjack and repeato

Group 2 does rotating 20 LBC’s, 20 dips until group 1 is done then each group flapjacks

warm up Indian Run lap around the track

Partner 1 runs up grandmother mountain and bear crawls down while partner 2 runs a lap of the track then meet up at the bottom and do 20 burpees between partners (first partner to get there starts) and then plank it up, Lobster Roll to lead a plank-o-rama while YHC goes back up the hill to retrieve the weinke, his 30 sec 6 inches call was indeed a crowd pleaser.

mosey to the middle of the field for partner military presses x 10, flapjack and repeato

partner assisted get ups x 10 each side, flapjack

20 partner paddy cake merkins and then sprint to the goal line for Mary:

10 each way Sid-The-Kid oyo

Flutter x 20

Heels to Heaven x 10

Rosalita x 20

Cross oblique crunches x 5 each side

AYG to cars

Hey look at that, another minute left, 10 good burpees oyo


All pax cemeted their place in the Jousting tournament by slaying dragons and holding back merlot, although YHC barely made the latter, that’s what I get for partnering with one of the resident Joust beasts (Lobster Roll, you always push the pax, especially YHC, love having you out there).  Also good to have Spandex and Blue Rhino pushing it hard on the partner work, good job guys.  Les Miserables pulled out the win (I think, it’s hard to see for sure when you are so far back) on the AYG at the end, Uncle Leo seemed to pass YHC on the track like I was standing still, not sure where that burst of speed came from but good to see.  Rivet good to see you back, hope to see you some more.  Stone Cold, well you cranked out the 60lb kettle bell and then barely got a workout in afterwards, #inspiration.

Great take out by Rivet

Always an honour to Q, especially at one of my favourite AO’s.


Looking to EH guys in the Union County Area, they Outland crew is looking to start up more weekday workouts and need the pax to grow them up.  Direct EH’s to the website and Counter Top and Hairband.
