Lockjaw’s 11 came forward for a rare Lockjaw Q of WDog.  Here is what transpired.

Mosey to the far large circle in front of the Carillon for COP.

  • Arm Circles
  • Helicopters
  • Don Quixote
  • Hill Billies (J-ville hop optional)
  • SSH
  • Copperhead Squats

It’s Valentine’s Day.  Find a date (partner up) and mosey back to the Rusty Cage.

  • 7 pullups, 7 jerkins X 3 times through

Mosey to the outdoor stage platform.  Keep a partner faithfully or be a swinger and find a new one for Touch a Tree:

  • Find 1 tree, then 2, then 3 while partner does box cutters.  Switch between sets.
  • Find 4 trees, then 5 while partner does scorpions.  Switch between sets.
  • Find 6 trees while the partner does derkins off of the stage.  Switch.
  • New trees for each evolution for a total of 21 unique trees.

Mosey to the halfway point in the big field in front of the Carillon for “menage a trois” triple check forming groups of three.

  • Flutter Kicks
  • Captain Thor
  • Run to the end of the field and back.

Ditch the third wheel and perform:

  • 25 PLT x 2 for each partner
  • 20 plerkins x 2 for each partner

Line up behind Keymaster and indigenous people run back to the VSF.

YHC took us out.


A Velentine’s Day special partner workout.  The title of the backblast refers to a Beatles deep cut song off of “Let It Be” that I randomly stumbled across on the radio this morning.  This is my favorite song from “Let It Be” and the song supports the partner theme while the album title supports moving on to new chapters in life, so it really fits.

My father-in-law passed away last night.  I really appreciate everyone who has reached out with care and support in recent weeks.  In times like these, one really takes account of what they have and these relationships are some of the best.  Thank You.

Go forward today and be the best version of yourself.  Be patient, thoughtful, and live for the day, leaving nothing for tomorrow.

Time to Taper,

  1. I see the ménage a triple check theme plays well on both sides of the RIVAH…nice work LJ. Love the Captain Thors – I never think of those but they always bring the pain, especially in the AMRAP style.

  2. Great Q and wonderful words, Lockjaw. Enjoyed my date with Keymaster this morning! Sorry again about you father-in-law.

  3. And, right on with the closing sentiment. AYE!

    Continued prayers and condolences for you and your family.

  4. Great minds think alike. They do provide some punishment. Keymaster thought they were called “Catholic Doors”. Not sure if that is a flashback to catholic school or a form of choir music inspired by the melodies of Jim Morrison?

  5. First off, great Q and BB Lockjaw. Closing sentiment is powerful. Thanks for leading today knowing the tough night you had. Best to your family.

    Lastly, although I hope I never have to actually see it, the image of “Lockjaw’s name tatoo’d on Hardywood’s Dong” is the last topic of conversation I expected today.

  6. Thanks Kubota for the kind words. I am glad you enjoyed the date with Keymaster despite the olfactory repercussions. He knows how to clear away those around him #groundzero.

  7. Great Q Lockjaw. Respect to Qing under difficult circumstances this am. You and your family will be in my prayers when I hit the knees this evening.
