12 Steps of exercise

Weather: 80 with a nice fog to start with

11 Pax posted: Maize, DC, Cornwallis, Nomad, Brickyard, Zamboni, Short Story, Snooki, State, Khaki, and Motorboat as QIC

Disclaimer given

QIC started immediately with a nice run around the church down the back parking lot to the street to the long drive and hill. We did various arm circles, jumps, and reaches while jogging to warm up. As we ran up the long drive, we could see the various stations that were set up.

This work out was borrowed and adapted from something YHC had seen with F3 Grand Rapids back in May and had been waiting to pull it out.

Start at station 1 and then sprint to the top of the hill. jog back down and complete station 2 and then station 1 and then sprint to the top of the hill. continue down the hill. QIC knew that we would not hit every station but planned out plenty just in case. After completing the first 4 stations, any repeat station’s reps were cut in half.

Station 1 – 10 hand release merkins, sprint to top of hill
Station 2 – 20 4ct Mountain Climbers, bear crawl to #1
Station 3 – 30 2 ct lunges, run to #2
Station 4 – 15 Deadlifts with one of 2 sandbags (100ish pounds). backwards run to #3
Station 5 – 15 burpees, run to #4
Station 6 – 20 Shoulder to Shoulder press (20#, 30#, 40#, 50ish# plates and sandbags- Pax choice), run to #5
Station 7 – 20 Makhtar N’Diayes, Bear crawl to #6
Station 8 – 30 2ct lunges, Run to #7
Station 9 – 20 4ct Mountain Climbers, Run to #8
Station 10 – 20 Hand Release Merkins, Run to #9
Station 11 – 25 4ct Flutter Kicks, Run to #10
Station 12 – 20 Makhtar N’Diayes, Run to #11

I think the fastest Pax got through station 6 before QIC had everyone jog to Station 12. We did station 12 IC and moved to Station 11. We picked up the cones, paper, and weights as we went back up the hill. QIC picked random stations and random counts as we moved back up the hill to get in some good core work prior to COT.

COT – make sure to meet with your partner for the month for a 2nd F meetup. Nomad is changing companies so that he doesn’t have to move any more, congrats! Short Story graduated high school and is having an open house on the 27th. Check slack for details. YHC thinks old people should bring good gifts.

Moleskin: Mumble chatter was good this morning. Zamboni had to wring out his shirt prior to getting in the car. YHC has terrible cardio and will continue to make beatdowns work on the things he needs improvement with, including cardio. Thanks for pushing me and pushing yourselves. Continue to be HIM!

12 PAX for a Ying Yang workout with Logger and Cosmo co-Qing.  Logger took the warmup and beatdown while Cosmo took the cool down and stretch.  All PAX worked hard and were glad to see the cool down and stretch as Logger was ‘smoking’ the Pax with a very solid beatdown.  Mumblechatter was acceptable, YHC always appreciates grumbling during the stretch…means is working.

Overall great time and great performance put in by all PAX.

Keep it going and keep giving it away!

Always a privilege,

16 PAX posted on a beautiful morning for some compound exercises lead by YHC.  The morning started with something about Headlock’s girlie short shorts and leggings (ask him) and ended with everyone getting a pretty decent beat down.

The virgin run of the Mountain warm up was fun (others are welcome to it if interested) and got everyone warmed up.  The Island Pyramid worked to YHC’s expectations with the exception of the Prison Burpees…Q needed and received some help (and deserved ridicule) for jacking up the cadence multiple times…HOWEVER….all got in some good reps and were ready for the next exercise…or so they thought.

Chicken Peckers with elevated feet are ALWAYS fun and spur much mumble chatter (very suitable today) and the 5 rounds proved painful enough   for everyone…although Q wondered if it was hard enough as some were still ‘moving it’ pretty well back to the cars.

Great to have One Direction back while he’s in town as well as Kindergarten Cop and Snooki.

NICE WORK to men….keep posting….keep getting better…..keep passing it on.

Always a privilege,

The blocks must start at the top of hill (it will be marked) and be run down (it will be marked) and back up in order to add to the stack. Only one Block can be transported at a time. Captains can have as many people at the bottom or top of the hill as they want.
    • 5 points for winner
    • 5 points awarded to Team Headlock

Moleskin

After a month plus build up we met on the field of battle to test our speed and strength. Q received more questions than he was expecting, creating games is challenging. Cannonball fire drew the most controversy. The most competitive people popped out of the group – it was fun to watch. We finished with Team Headlock scoring 67 points. Team Nomad scoring 47 points.

Q had to skip Tug of War and shorten the Fortification challenge. If/when there is a next time, I’ve thought of modifiers to get this done in time and speed up some of the games.

Thanks Men, that was fun. Keep EHing!

Indy Memorial Day Murph

5/27/19

12 Men posted on this Memorial Day to remember all those who have sacrificed their lives. 9 for the Murph, 3 for the Ruck

Q: Cornwallis
Pax: Beefsteak, Cosmo, KneeHigh, Marshall, Nomad, Khaki, Maize, DC, Tulip, State, Logger

Disclaimer given

1 mile run to Inlow Park
20 sets of: 5 pull ups, 10 Mericans, 15 squats
1 mile run back to the Hill

COT- Each man named a fallen soldier instead of their own name.

Moleskin:
-Great job this morning guys! Everyone worked really hard and it was fun doing the murph together.
-I think the highlight was going down the twisty slide at the end and watching everyone bounce off of the rubber ground.
-That hill running back will getcha! Nice job Beefsteak taking off and leading the pack with blazing speed!
-I think more pull-ups should be in our future so we aren’t suffering so much on those. Keep getting after it! Keep EH’ing every man you see. Keep posting!

AYE!

Coming off of a story about a Boston Marathon runner who dedicated each mile to a different person, reading Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins and learning about the 40% Rule, Memorial Day coming up, and a long wait before a chance to Q, I put together a special (& sadistic) downPAINment for Tuesday 5/21/2019.

Moleskin:

Today was hard, but we got WAY stronger. Glad to have another Marine join us with the addition of FNG now named Clubber. Unfortunately time ran short and we skipped the calf raise and pull up portions of the beat down, but there is always next Q for that. Looking forward to the team battle, even though it is postponed until June.

Until next time,

COT and naming of FNG now known as Padre.

Moleskin:
Lots of mumble chatter about the difficulty of the workout. It was full of cardio suck and the Q was sucking wind for sure.
The Q messed up the sprints. Should have had the front guy in pushup position and the second guy ready to sprint when the pushup guy started to get up. My bad!
The Q needs to explain the circuit a little better but on the plus side, we did have some music to help it go faster.
Great work men. Always fun to get to lead.

Aye!
