The Squat-pocalypse

The Squat-pocalypse

In prepping for this morning work-out I had one goal, which was to warm up as fast as possible. Below freezing temps and a pretty good breeze made the morning less than ideal, but then again it could be colder…or raining…or just whatever.  So yeah, try to get warmed up quick (and also avoid putting hands to payment until we could actually feel our hands again). So with that as my guide I thought quickly about what might meet this criteria, and the answer that came was Light pole suicides with a progressively increasing number of squats.  That’ll suck…and it kinda did, but it also took a lot longer than expected.  By the time we wrapped that up it was 6 am.  I think everyone was pretty warm by then though, so I’ll give it a 6 out of 10. Anyways, that left me with way too much planned and not enough time to do it, so the last 15 minutes was mostly an audible. Still, we worked and pretty hard at that.  And that’s the goal, right?

Here’s how it all went down.


  • Mosey around the lot to the front of the middle school.
  • SSH x 20
  • High Knees x 15
  • Potato Pickers x 10
  • Low Slow Squats x 15
  • Moroccan Night Club x 20

The Thang:

  • Mosey back to the path by COT
  • Light pole suicide / squat-pocalypse
    • Run to the first light pole / 5 squats / run back to start
    • Run to second light pole / 10 squats / run back to start
    • Keep adding 5 squats at each light pole.  There were 8 total light poles which totaled 180 squats and probably close to 2 miles of ground covered
  • Grab some wall at the shed
    • Shoulder Press x 20
    • Jabs x 20
    • Donkey kicks x 20
    • Legalized gave us a 10 count and then we did it all again
  • Mosey to the tables at the back of the middle school
    • 30 dips / run to the alcove / 10 Mike Tysons
    • 3 total sets of this
  • Mosey back to start
  • Plank / 6″ for about a minute until time


  • Come out to Queen South on Saturday 1/25 at 3pm to hang out with me before I head to CO where I may or may not be starting my own grow operation. M and 2.0 friendly. (Thanks Zin for putting this together)

Ice 9 took us out.


Have a great day fellas.  I hope to see everyone at the next stop of my going away tour this Wednesday at Chiseled.  We will hold a bunch of really cold bricks, and we’ll like it.
