After having caught enough flak for only Q’ing for runs, YHC decided to finally Q up a “real” workout. Just to put an exclamation mark on it, he declared this would be a “NO-RUNNING” beat down. YHC, Mr. Rogers, and FNG Tom (Sassy) fell out of the clown car early to find a shovel flag planted, weights already on the tailgate, and 4 smiling F3 regulars ready to roll. Fudd, Rosie, Offshore and Circle K filed in to fill out the Pax, and we got to work. It went down something like this:
SSH IC: X29
Imperial Walker IC: X0 (stupid Q forgot)
Don Quixote (old man speed): X20ish
Arm Circles IC: 10 little, 5 big, then repeato reverse (fins up, fins down)
Merkin IC: X10
Mosey to the Swirly-mobile and pick out a weight:
Farmer’s carry- walk with the weight either overhead, chest level, or like a bucket 4 times around parking lot, switching sides each lap. Al Groh (Al Gore with a brain fart) with weight when finished.
Farmer’s carry back to the benches for some OYO intervals:
-right leg step ups X30
-incline prom dates X20
-left leg step ups X30
-full range release merkins X20
-goblet squats X20
Repeato, substitute 4-count American hammers (with weights) X20 for merkins
-Final set of American hammers to failure or 20 reps (4 count, of course)
Partner up for 2 sets of weighted merkins: partner holds both weights on back, do merkins until failure, then switch. Next set, remove one weight.
Farmer’s carry back around the parking lot one more time, swapping sides X4.
Gather around the SF.
Once we got started, there was very little mumblechatter, seemed like nobody knew what to expect from this oddball workout and new Q. First lap, Fudd made a feels like a women’s group comment, but YHC thinks that the second loop took care of that sentiment.
Honey Do pointed out the eerie silence was most likely due to the fact that YHC was trying to make sure he didnt goof up the count, thus couldnt make totally pointless remarks. Touche’
This morning was a bit of a blur to YHC, so he hopes that it went smoothly for the Pax. a couple observations though:
-YHC never noticed how badass Splinter is…maybe the height is a disguise, or maybe YHC should pay more attention. Way to get it done!
-Swirly just plain old works. Pretty well documented, but DAMN.
Special thanks to Bleeder and Swirly for supplying the weights and the shovel flag. Literally could not have done this workout without you! Also, thanks for re-engaging YHC’s brain for nam-o-rama, he had checked out.
Also thanks to Honey Do for pushing the VQ (remix) on me last HDHH. Next up, Viral???
To anyone that has ever Q’d: RESPECT. Yall make it look easy…it’s not.
Also, a big welcome to FNG Tom (Sassy). He ran the Bear Creek 10 miler with us, and finally got him out for a workout. Glad to have you, brother!
Newcomer Mr. Rogers came back out this morning as well (First post was Friday). He is already securing a ride for 45 MOM. Great to see more of DaVillagers making it out and getting in to the routine.
-Golf tournament for Suicide Prevention in April. Please see Fudd for the details on this worthy cause!
-Circle K and I are hosting HDHH on March 16th. We will shore up the details very soon and post up a pre-blast.
Please see pre-blast regarding weight loss challenge that popped up yesterday from Metro. Bleeder is organizing this locally.
