Partner up and say with barrels to bottom of the hill, switching barrel carrier half way.

PAX1 Rolls barrel up hill and does 10 skull crushers

PAX2 20 squats and hold Al Gore

PAX1 then drops barrel and let’s it roll to partner while jogging down hill.

Rinse and repeat 6 times

Ring of Fire

Irkins and derkins with partners on the barrel

PAX1 does 20 squats

PAX2 holds barrel in Al Gore

Flip flop to 200 squats

Indian run….NO BARREL

PAX1 walks backward up hill carrying barrel and rolls it down to PAX2

Rinse and repeat 3 times

Barrel tracks back to the flag

–barrels laid on the ground like railroad tracks. First PAX picks up first barrel and moseys to the end and places it on the ground then circles back to the end of PAX line.

Disappointed 60° could only muster 8 PAX out of the fartsack. The barrels were a fun change of pace. Lots of squats made for a good quad burn. Ring of fire in derkin position proved to be awful. Lots of moaning and groaning ensued. Otherwise, not a lot of mumble chatter. “Barrels aren’t heavy, just awkward,” was one comment. “A year and a half before I see these barrels again,” was another. Good workout on a perfect morning.

Tower of Terror

Started with 1 incline merkin followed by 2 burpees. Rocky Balboas x4 at first landing followed by running the stairs. Everything except the burpees increased by one. Most completed 9 rounds which equaled 18 burpees. 8 burpees were completed at the end to finish our 26 for the day.

The Tower never disappoints. Great workout. Nothing is better than ending the workout with a Name-O-Rama! QIC #1 noticed during warmup that rather than smelling donkey crap he was smelling one of the PAX. Upon further investigation, during the Tower of Terror, it was discovered that the FNG was the originator of the smell. It was only fitting that he be named Smell Good. I To quote Piper’s advice to our newest member regarding his aroma, “Don’t let us down!” See you all Friday.

Mosey to 5 shelter houses at each stop 2 burpees were completed x5 shelters plus 2 in warmup =12 burpees for March 6th.

After the 2 burpees the following exercises were completed:

10 merkin

10 step ups each leg

10 LBC

10 dips

5 sets were completed at the first shelter and it decreased down to one set at the 5th shelter.

**Mary

Flutter kicks ICX20

**Moleskin

Crabbypo was tardy picking up the Q and so PAX were left questioning the weasel shaker up until the final minute prior to kickoff. Not much mumble chatter this morning. Once everyone got their assignment it was down to business. 12 burpees still seem very doable. We will see how we feel by the end of next week. My guess is April will not come fast enough to put an end to the burpee challenge. The final comment today came from Popeye. He told the Q that he won’t be doing burpees in Colorado. Apparently, high altitude burpees aren’t happening. See everyone Friday.

Despite QIC waking up late, DC showing up late, and Daisy having played 3 hours of basketball the night before, it was a great workout. Some mumble regarding the “warmup” stair laps prior to the main event only reassured the Q that he was bringing the heat. Those mumbles were quickly followed by another wise crack that the Q might want to show up early and run prior to the workout. All of this chatter seemed to come from one particular PAX. It must be tax season…….All in all we worked up a great sweat and finished the week strong.

The “fun” that was promised started with the presentation of the donut hat for Gas Man. Unfortunately, the fun ended there too. A really good workout for a Saturday. Lots of laughs at coffeeteria. It was suggested that maybe yours truly uses too much sugar in my coffee. Maybe I should provide my own next time. Gas Man didn’t disappoint as Hoops was unable to fit all of his food on one plate! We all wish Gas Man the best and look forward to his return. It is hoped that he will be able to compete with Piper. Time will tell. Good luck, Gas Man and Godspeed.

PAX were very dedicated to making themselves better today. -37° wind chills makes the fartsack even more glorious, however, 8 of us got our butts out of bed to better ourselves. It seemed like cheating by working out inside, but was definitely the smart choice. It’s brutal outside. Seemed a little different with the lights on. We all seem a little more “fit” in the dark! ….except Piper, of course. If this ever happens again, Jay-Z promises to cook breakfast following the beat down.

The mosey to the shelter house proved to be more treacherous than anticipated and resulted in soaked feet before stretching. This also resulted in a modification by the Q as we found one sidewalk that was free of ice. Overall a good mix of aerobic and strength exercises. Seemed a bit repetitious as pointed out by one mouthy PAX. The 38° temps made for a nice change, but the rain added a suck factor. Wet feet by all may make a run on boot (not boob) dryers at Rural King.

We welcomed our first FNG of 2019, Zach Miller. Nice work by Popeye for putting him in an Emotional Headlock. Let’s keep the EHing going! The jump squat holds proved to be a lot of fun and something we hadn’t done in a while. It was discovered that when the Q says “In honor of…” something not so fun is coming. QIC apparently brought the heat as he was called a derogatory name after suggesting 100 SSH. It was great to see so many PAX in attendance. Keep up the good work.

12 days of Christmas took place on the tennis courts. 6 courts with each half of the court representing a day. We started on the first day, proceded to the second day and the back to the first. Just like the song, we jogged to the 3rd day and then did day 2 and 1 again. You get the pattern…..The exercises were as follows:

Day 1: Crowd pleaser and a lunge on each leg

Day 2: Mountain climbers

Day 3: Absolution

Day 4: Plank jacks

Day 5: Burpees

Day 6: Mike Tyson

Day 7: Floyd Mayweather

Day 8: Crab Jack’s

Day 9: American hammer

Day 10: Merkins

Day 11: One legged squats

Day 12: Squats

We completed 10 days and then started at day 12 and worked our way through due to time. Mary was skipped and COT was completed on the tennis court.

**Moleskin

Spirits were high and lots of laughter started out our morning. That mood quickly changed to grumbling and silence after about day 5. The only thing keeping us going was visions of coffeeteria dancing in our heads. In true coffeeteria fashion, Gas Man nearly ate his weight in food. Good 2nd F as always. We missed all of the fartsackers and those who were called out to work. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good workout

PAX began at the start of the Festival of Lights at the park.

We went on a mosey through the path the cars take.

We first stopped at each of the 12 days of Christmas and did the corresponding number of merkins.

From that point on we were looking for 4 things….

Animated lights=5 Absolution

Santa=25 SSH

Snow flake=Fire drill (PAX chop their feet, on Qs command we drop, roll to right, do a merkin, roll to left, do a merkin, back up)

Tree of the fake variety=2 Tony Hawk burpees (on the jump at the end do a 360° in the air)

A special stop was made along the way…..pickle pounders under the blue balls

SILENCE as we worked our way to the beginning of the Festival of Lights. The anticipation of what the Q had planned was overwhelming. Lol This workout proved to be more strenuous than anticipated but the time went fast and it was a nice change of pace. It was very obvious that there are more animated light displays than anything else. Lots of Absolutions were completed. See you all Wednesday.
