It was a pleasure to lead y’all in a below 40 degree workout. Hope it was good for everyone as it was for me. Love the encouragement from everyone throughout the whole workout even up until the very end.

Can’t believe we get to do this for free!

QIC had to move to the shelter house rather than “the unit” due to light rain. Some mumble this morning regarding Q trying to “out run the rain,” and some moans as Q took the long way back to the flag for Mary. We missed all of our brothers who are traveling. Prayers were lifted for you all. It’s nice to have so many traveling and still have 6 men post. Let’s keep it going. Remember, the cold winter months are all mental.

55 F Clear and a bit muddy at the Grassy Knoll (but not bad)

PAX:  Khaki, Brickyard, Head Lock, Logger, Cornwallis, State, DC, Keytar, Cosmo (Q)

DC’s joint-Q idea worked out VERY WELL this morning as the group got a decent bit of push up, LBC balance exercise then topped it off with some yoga and stretching.  Made for a great feeling  leaving the workout for this Q that lasted the rest of the day.  Good mix of things even though it sounded a bit strange at first….but then we are dealing with a joint DC/Cosmo Q…so likely should have expected some weirdness!

NICE WORK men…

I have 2 chagres to ALL PAX…

1 Q – Let’s target as a group to volunteer for Qs out in advance (maybe a month out if possible)…this will help the site Qs focus more on making the Qs awesome and less on scheduling.  I’m committing to get better at this moving forward….jump in with me here.

2 Pass it on….let’s keep growing this movement and impact other men that need this in their lives.

Its great to be a part of this awesome group!

Always a privilege!

Cosmo (for DC)

Moleskin:

Conversation about Mondays tires workout and the different “growing pains” from it started the day. Good to have Maestro and Cubby Blue to join us today. In honor of the MLB playoffs, 4 corners at the diamond felt good. To celebrate “National Bring Your Teddy Bear to Work Day.” Be broke out some bear crawls as well as some other animal friend exercises. Paired with an exercise to enhance the “walk” helped bring some burn to the workout. Ultimate frisbee was hoping to bring some fun to the workout, but the gloom proved too powerful as we couldn’t see the frisbee well enough to catch it, so it became a burpee fest. After a round of more burpees than throws- we switched to wham-O chasers and worked more on the legs. Ending the day with some CCR never hurts- and as WALKERSTRONG never seems to go over as a huge hit- we decided to try her plain brother,Hillbillies, to wrap up the day. Overall- good workout- despite the disappointment of Ultimate, the legs feel worked. Emphasis on pushing more EH as cold weather will likely keep the new recruits away during the winter. Hope to see a bigger crew for Friday!!!! Bring some friends!!!!

Hose Work

The Hill

Q: Swayzee

PAX:  Paula Dean (Naperville), Zamboni, Headlock, Omaha (Lake Norman), DC, Pop, Brickyard, PVC, Khaki, Cornwallis, Logger, Wolverine, State, Cosmo

Thank you to our guests this morning.  We hope your stay is pleasant and we appreciate the long distance brotherhood.

 

We were blessed to have had unusually warm and dry weather for October in Indiana.  We were blessed even more by having 15 PAX show up to enjoy it.   I would like to say thank you to everyone for the patience, support, and a few good-hearted jabs on my first Q.

This VQ coincided with this past weekend’s National Firefighter Memorial Service.  To commemorate the men and women that have passed due to a Line of Duty Death (LODD) in the fire service or have succumbed to mental illness that plagues our profession; we did a little hose work.

SSH IC

Weed Pickers

Arm Circles (forward and backward)

Squats

Tricep and Shoulder stretches

Thang

Mosey to concrete circle with intermixed high knees and butt kicks

Spiderman Merkins 10 IC

Lunges 20 IC

Tricep Extensions 10 OYO

Mosey to Barn

People’s Chair – shoulder to shoulder- Pass a 50′ roll of 3″ fire hose (Approx. 38 pounds) to your neighbor on your right.  Then bring it back to start by passing it to your left.

Everyone took a plank position about one foot apart and the hose was unrolled by PAX moving the hose from one to another, alternating left then right handed grab and pull to the right.  The hose was then brought back by reversing the process to the left.

Mosey in a tight and friendly line to the parking lot while everyone held the hose at shoulder level.

The hose was laid out flat

Ladder work:  follow the leader by alternating jumps left and right down the 50′ length of the hose. Then follow the leader by jumping forward and backward down the length of the hose.

PAX then did an exercise which simulated draining the hose after a working fire.  This involves lifting a section of the hose at a time with straight arms overhead in a backstroke motion and walking forward to the end of the hose.  Repeat to other end.

Everyone took one turn at this while the rest of the PAX completed the prescribed 50′ suicides x2 of Bear Crawl then Crab Walk.

Until everyone had completed their turn with the hose, PAX had to hold plank, do squats, or choose your own Suicides exercise.  We observed everything from broad jumps to sprinting to lunge walks.  Everyone did a great job staying busy and disciplined with doing work.

Mosey back to starting area while carrying hose as a group.
