20 of us gathered for a entertaining workout/lecture series. Most were anxious to prove their mettle and perhaps attempt to hijack the Q – looking at you One Star 😉 – to show how much they already knew. Some were just plain anxious or were trying to make everyone else feel better by pretending not to know how to count in cadence! Chastain did his best to wrangle the rowdy crew, God bless you sir!
This turned out to be the bulk of the workout. Chastain rattled off more disclaimers than I realized existed, and we then took turns leading one exercise IN CADENCE to a 5 count. Everyone seemed to go brain-dead, as we struggled to come up with more than 3 distinct exercises, and we had a hard time counting to 5 at some points. I should note that this section may need to be renamed, as there was much more standing around than actually warming up. You did your best to keep us moving Chastain!
Fuse Box “led” us to the front of the school where we did some partner work, modeled a bunch of bad behavior for the kids, and talked at length about how to put together a Weinke, kill time, and avoid big mistakes when learning to Q. As mentioned earlier, lots of Q jacking going on, lots of ideas for exercises, and a lot more standing around. We then ended up at COT, where there was lots more standing around and instruction. After that was a graduation ceremony and if it weren’t for COVID I’m sure there would have been lots of hugs to go around as well.
All in all, it was definitely helpful, and fun time meeting some new guys and sharing some laughs. Well done Chastain, thanks for all the hard work!
