Never Q’d Downtown before. Vast area to perform multiple different exercises; however, YHC knew it was going to be cold and rainy so thought I’d use the parking deck. Visited the Ye ol Exicon database to get some inspiration for some new or rarely used exercises. Really wanted to bring out some coupons but I had gotten sidetracked with life during the week so wasn’t able to get them made, that said had to modify the weinke last minute
Warmup in the pavilion out of the rain:
SSH – 50 IC
Imperial Walker – 15 IC
MNC – 50 IC (Whoopee liked to pretend I was feeling him up during this exercise)
Mosey out of pavilion and stop in front of flag poles. Single file line for the Death March. Very slow, fellowshipish mosey while last guy in line does 5 burpees. After he finishes taps last guy in line to do burpees and sprints to the front. Rinse, repeat through line until we make it to the top of the parking deck.
Take stairs to lower level of Parking Deck
P1 – Merkins, Squats, LBC’s, CDD’s
P2 run up stairs, 2 Burpees run back down stairs & switch. Next time up 4 burpees, repeat until 8 burpees each PAX
Chilly Jacks – 15 IC
Crowd Pleaser – 1 Merkin 1 Groiner 1:1 to 5:5 to 1:1
Makhtar N’Diayes – 10 (Broke get’s bonus points for naming the UNC standout by only 1 clue given by YHC “UNC player from Senegal”)
French Fries – 25 each arm
Mumblechatter was at an all time high. Whoopee and I got into it on the French Fries as YHC was trying to steal them. He didnt care for that too much and ended up making a complete mockery of me. Made me laugh so hard it was a triple core workout for me. Pretty sure he tea bagged me a few times as well. Well played sir!
Mosey back to the pavilion and circle up for Barrell of Monkeys?? Squirt and YHC seem to recall thats what the exercise is called. Come to find out later the official term is called “Howling Monkeys”. In a circle, everyone grabs their ankles in Monkey Humper fashion (or Gorilla Humper, for the fearless) . The first person does ten monkey humpers followed by the next person and so on as in other “ring of fire” exercises. Don’t let go of the ankles!
Next we did an Around the Horn style MARY. We heard a train so of course 5 burpess.
XMAS Party and other some other events that have already happened
Prayer requests spoken & unspoken
Squirt took us out.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to Q at your site. I know you will do great things with this Downtown AO. Makes me happy to think we started at the same time and we are already running our own AO’s. For the rest of you, thanks for resisting the fartsack and coming out to support me and make yourselves better at the same time. See you all again soon!!
